Village Festival 2015

How lucky we were to be blessed with four days of glorious weather for this year’s Festival! It encouraged so many of you to come to the Village Green and other venues to enjoy all that was on offer, and it was lovely to see you all. The café and BBQ did a roaring trade and yet again, between us, we almost managed to drink the Red Rock and Old Walls bars dry.

The committee would like to thank everyone who took part in the Festival, from our wonderful band of volunteers to the Flower Club ladies who created the beautiful flower festival at the Methodist Church, the organisers of our new Arts and Crafts area and con- tributors for the excellent display of crafting in the village, all the leaders of both school and adult workshops, the Bishopsteignton Players for the “Return to the Forbidden Planet” final flight, and the many musicians who entertained us throughout the four days - you are too numerous to mention individually, but enormous thanks go to each and every person who contributed in any way to the success of the event.

We think we are getting better at organising festivals (!) but always welcome your comments, especially constructive criticism. If you would like to get in touch with your thoughts and suggestions, please email

Finally, thank you to all of you who just came along to enjoy the sunshine and the entertainment – it wouldn’t have been the same without you!

We are trying to start a NHHW in Bishopsteignton. This is a new scheme supported by the NHS, Police, Fire Service and Voluntary sector which aims to equip local people to protect the health, safety and well being of those living near to them.

The scheme does not replace professionals or existing voluntary organisations. All it takes are a few neighbours who are willing to work together to support the most vulnerable members of their community.

This is how it works: A Good Neighbour Coordinator receives a request for assistance from a member of the community (the Requestor), an example may be from an elderly person who needs a light bulb replaced or who needs a prescription collected during bad weather. The Coordinator will assess each request and decide if it is a request that a Good Neighbour Volunteer could help with and if the answer is yes then the Coordinator will match the request to a willing Good Neighbour volunteer. If the answer is no then the Coordinator may refer the requestor to the appropriate organisation that could help them such as the local doctor, Fire service, Police or voluntary organisation.

If you would like to know more about the scheme visit the Health and Wellbeing marquee at the Village Festival. The website about NHHW is .
