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!

Flow Lane planning appeal withdrawn

Bishopsteignton Museum Charitable Trust has decided to withdraw its appeal against a refusal of planning consent issued by Teignbridge District Council.

The circumstances surrounding the project have recently changed significantly to the extent that the risks involved are now considered to be too great for the Trust to continue as planned.  

The trust has reappraised its financial position and taken into account the risks associated with the delivery of the developments proposed for the Flow Lane site. These risks include an inability to negotiate a long term, sustainable, commercial lease with the Surgery in spite of efforts by both parties to do so. 

The trustees will now be reassessing their options both for the Museum and use of the Flow Lane site, bearing in mind their existing planning consents on the site.

Surgery Update - August 2015

Channel View patients will no doubt be wondering what is happening about the replacement for the village surgery. The Healthy Living Group who used to publish regular minutes and updates are no longer involved, so information is hard to come by. 

The last public update was provided by Dr Karakusevic at the 6th July Parish Council meeting when she advised the meeting that Channel View Practice were in discussion with the Methodist Church over using the Hall as a temporary surgery facility.

This website now understands that the Methodist Church has formally offered Channel View Medical Practice their Hall to be converted as an interim Doctors’ surgery and that subject to lease etc Channel View have accepted this offer.

An architect is preparing working drawings and a potential contractor has confirmed the feasibility of the proposals.

It seems that IF all goes forward without too many ‘hiccups', a replacement surgery could be operational within the time frame required.
