Herewith the Mayoral reply to our email
dated 29th June 2008 regarding Travellers on the Common
For obvious reasons, I am v unhappy to see that Travellers have come onto Galmpton Common. Our officers are working v closely with the Police to ensure that they are moved on ASAP. But we can only act within the Law. We shall, of course, clean up any mess after they have gone … as we have done before & only last week at Clennon.
I understand that Police Officers have called on residents in an attempt to re assure them.
Our officer Andy Phillips has a good track record in “sorting “ these problems & he has sent me a v thoughtful report & suggestions to prevent this in the future. However, the only practical way of ensuring prevention would be to fence off the Common or at least grow an impenetrable hedge of some sort. Thoughts, please?
We are working with other Devon Councils to establish pitches & you are quite right to point out that having pitches would help us to move on Travellers. Cllr Jeanette Richards is more au fait with progress on this & I shall include her in this response. But the problem is to find a suitable location.
I am sorry that you are so obviously disappointed in my role. All I can say is that I am not Mayor Giuliani , but I have been to Galmpton on Saturday & yesterday. I am happy to meet with Police & residents, but the sort of “action” that some folk call for might not be within the law & may, in fact, make a v difficult situation worse.

08/01/08 LETTER FROM TORBAY COUNCIL REF WINDY CORNER JUNCTION
I would like to inform you that it is proposed that the next meeting of the Transportation Working Party, scheduled for the 22nd February 2007 at 9:30am in the Town Hall, will discuss the proposed improvement scheme for the Windy Corner Junction. As you are aware the consultation was carried out some time ago but the results were never considered by Councillors due to the elections. Members will now consider the results of the consultation and recommend whether the scheme will be progressed to the next stage or abandoned. Members of the public are welcome to attend.
Please contact me if you require any further information.
08/01/08 Subs Collection
Almost every household in the village has been asked to contribute £2 to the Residents’ Association either by personal visit or in writing when it has not been possible to recruit a visitor. As usual there has been a splendid response, particularly where personal contact was made. The costs of the Association have been met and there is a surplus to start rebuilding the reserves, based on Mrs Betsy Treadgold’s legacy, so that we might have the wherewithal to support any future necessary action, perhaps seeking legal advice. Many thanks to everybody, particularly the visitors. If you haven’t yet had a chance to pay and don’t want to feel out of things, Kay and Gary Deare have kindly agreed to accept subscriptions on our behalf, in envelopes with your name and address and e-mail address if you would like to be kept in the picture.
On 27th December, 'Mac' and Joyce Madkins will celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary. Merry Christmas and congratulations to Mac and Joyce from everyone in Galmpton Residents' Association and all the residents of Galmpton. Photo courtesy of Stewart Miller.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL VISITORS
