Devon Ash Dieback
This disease is spreading throughout Devon. Landowners have a duty to manage trees on their land and take appropriate action to minimise risks to public safety from diseased trees. Find out more and get advice on how to deal with the problem from the

Well done Highampton
Highampton has raised the funds for the Devon Air Ambulance Night
landing site. The target has been achieved by generous donations from residents and local businesses such as farmers, Lamisell LTD and Burdon Grange Care Home. The hamlet of Highampton has shown great spirit in achieving the target of £3000 in a very short period.
Once planning is approved the site will be project managed by the Parish Council until completion. Hopefully the site will be ready for use by the end of Aug 2019. I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported the worthy cause and to give a special mention to John and Hilay Newcombe for giving permission to use their land for the actual landing site.
The Night landing site will benefit every resident in Highampton should they need to use it.
Cllr Dawn Rees, Chairman, Highampton Parish Council.
