- Buckfastleigh Response – demand for the Food Bank during the coronavirus increased seven-fold and the need is likely to continue due to job losses and the economic impact. We will continue to support our community during this crisis and agreed to fund £10,000 to the Food Bank from the £20,000 Covid-19 ring-fenced budget.
- Town Council Meetings – we agreed to continue to meet monthly using the virtual facility Zoom. Please see our website, Facebook page or contact the Clerk for further information. Our next meeting is Wednesday 16th September at 7.00pm which will include a discussion about the provision of free community training.
- Looking forward to 2021 –we are now consulting with the community so we can plan and budget for the next financial year.
