Web Site Up and Running

Due to a technical issue the Combe Martin Parish Council web site was down, but it is now up and running again. In the process of getting it up and running it has had to be uploaded with an old template, this is going to mean that some information you may see is out of date and is in the process of being altered or removed. Apologies for any inconvenience that this may have caused.

Hollands Park to be flood lit for Emergency Helicopter Landing

Combe Martin Parish Council, Hollands Park Football Club and the Devon Air Ambulance Trust (DAAT) have been working together to get the football pitch to become a designated landing site for the DAA in times of emergency. A fundraising appeal is underway to try and raise at least £3,111.09 (ex VAT) to go with a grant of £3,442.37 (ex VAT) to flood light the pitch, the lights would be operated off-site and even by the pilots themselves as they get closer.

Councillor Doug Seymour is heading up the charity fundraiser and can be contacted on the details listed below

There is an information pack available through Doug from the DAAT.
