Welcome to the Whitestone Devon website

created by Creative Whitestone and funded by Whitestone Parish Council for the benefit of all. This website is intended to give an insight into day-to-day Whitestone, a little of its history up to the present day and some of the other interests and businesses that are to be found here. 



WHITESTONE FETE

A sweltering, fun day was held by all at the fete on Saturday 1st July. The children pantomime dancers attracted a very large audience and were enjoyed by all. Between dances, Jess Mingo's fantastic songs and guitar kept everyone entertained. If you weren't there, you missed the delightful human fruit machine with the other delights of skittles, raffle, slow bicycle race, tombola, games, wine or water stall, plant stall, five hired stalls, children's races and an egg throwing competition

A bar, barbeque, cream teas and ice creams provided the refreshment required.

A total of £573.00 was raised to be shared equally between Alzheimers and Whitestone Parish Pals. Well done to everyone involved in organising, setting up and attending the fete.

The evening Fun Quiz was also a great success with entertaining questions from our quizmaster, Jane Richards. Fete 2017 Fete 2017



REPORT A POTHOLE
It is still possible to report any pothole you come across on a Devon Road. Just click on the arrow to be redirected to the Devon County Council page and fill in the details.
Devon County Council has almost tripled its number of pothole repair teams in response to the storm damage to roads across the county.

Over the winter storm period, since 23 December, the County Council has recorded more than 1,300 reports of fallen trees and branches on Devon’s roads, more than 150 embankment slips, and more than 4,000 flooding incidents across the county.

Around 11,500 potholes have also been reported by the public or found by highway inspectors so far in 2014. In response, the number of teams dealing with pothole safety defect repairs has increased from 13 to 34, with an extra 52 staff tackling the problem. The approximate additional cost of the work is around £65,000 a week.

The clear-up of the storm damage is estimated to cost around £3 million to the end of the financial year, but the County Council is yet to finalise a figure for the damage caused by the storms as the road network and structures are still being assessed.

CHURCH PRIMROSES

If you haven’t had the opportunity yet to see the primroses in the churchyard of St. Catherine’s Church, it is well worth a visit (particularly if you enter by the Church Lane entrance.). Spring has definitely sprung.

AUTUMN LITTER PICK

Unfortunately,the litter pick, scheduled for Saturday 15th October 2016 10.00 am, had to be cancelled as Teignbridge District Council, informed us that no insurance was in place for pickers on roads with speed limits greater than 30 mph.

As most of our litter picking was to be on unrestricted country lanes and other C class roads, there was no alternative but to cancel the event.

It is hoped that a resolution to this problem can be found for future picks.
