This announcement came at the latest meeting of full council, which took place on Monday, September 18, and was councillors Hannah Mills-Brown's and Lisa Robbillard Webb's first meeting.

At the meeting, Bovey Tracy councillors extended thanks to the volunteers, residents and organisations who helped to put on so many events over the summer months.

Elsewhere, councillors were delighted to discuss the new wooden shelter that has been built next to the skate park. This partnership project has involved teenagers, youth workers, the Police and the Council.

An opportunity to come and meet Councillors, Youth Workers and the Friends of Mill Marsh Park is coming on Saturday, September 30, at 11am where you will be able to view the playground refurbishment plans.

The refurbishment work will start the 2nd week in October and last for approximately six weeks during which time the playground area will be closed.
