We held our Authorities presentation meeting Friday 16th March 2018. This heralds the process to leading to the build start. It was a very successful meeting when we advise those concerned of what we are planning and what we consider is required to move things forward.

It was attended by members from the following organisations:

Fire Service
Torridge District Council
Great Torrington Town Council
Great Torrington Commons Conservators

We have to thank all the above for they input and:

The Green Lantern for providing the drink FOC and the cakes / biscuits.
The Mayor, Sue Mills, for agreeing to pay the cakes / biscuits.
Great Torrington Town and Lands Charity for the use of the meeting room and projector.

Onwards now for the official build start, date TBC.


This days working party was not scheduled, but called at the last minute. It was again wet and cold but the boys did good again.

Some trees were cut to the required lengths, moved to their required location and holes dug for them. Next week we will have a digger on site to dig the bigger holes and install some of the trees moved today.
