The next scheduled meeting of the Parish Council is due to be held on Wednesday 19th August - time and format to be confirmed. 

Members of the public are invited to join the meeting.

By now you would normally have seen a copy of the annual area timetable book. This year, however, with so much disruption, a succession of service changes, reduced travel and a lack of outlets for distribution of paper information, a decision was taken not to publish a paper book with a short shelf-life, but to rely for the time being on the on-line version.

 The links to the latest versions are here. Most services are now operating normally but any exceptions to this are indicated:









Dear all

 I have been made aware of a local Exploitation technique that has been seen across Devon & Cornwall but specifically in the Axminster/Seaton area.

 I expect Tweets and social messaging by the police around this via the Devon Alert system, but also nationally we may see an increase in Distraction burglary offences.

 Please be aware and if you hear anything feed it into the Police via the Partnership Intelligence form.( https://www.devon-cornwall.police.uk/contact/contact-forms/partner-agency-information-sharing-form/)

National update:

  • Distraction/artifice burglary offences (and similar) are expected to increase, targeting the vulnerable and elderly.

Local update:

  • Suspected exploitation by food delivery service going door-to-door making extortionate charges force-wide. (Axminster, Seaton, Hayle and Torquay)

 Kind regards and keep Healthy

The Parish Council has now revived the Rockbeare Roots Newsletter, albeit in a different format as a means of ensuring that everyone knows what is happening in Rockbeare Parish. The Council needs some help to make this happen, we can draft the newsletter and arrange for it to be printed but we need information to put in it and also people to help deliver it. If you would like to help then please contact either the Chairman Jeremy Wollen or the Parish Clerk Carolyn May.
