SEPTEMBER 2nd 2021
With Marwood Ladies having their first face-to-face meeting at Marwood Gardens this afternoon, the Parish Council meeting tonight, the Pop-Up Pub tomorrow, schools and colleges starting next week as well as the disruption on the local roads, with the commencement of the new roundabout at Lynton Cross from the 6th September, there are a lot of 'normal' things happening!
This month there is also the Marwood 3 Villages Fun Run on the 11th September and do respond to Kate if you want to join in. (See poster below.) Most of us may have managed to avoid many of the visitors over the summer, but there is Covid-19 around our Parish, and there are also still many unknowns. We have to be sensible.
The Marwood Exhibition has been a huge success with so many taking part and more than1000 visitors coming to the exhibition during the month. It became a special meeting place over the summer, particularly for locals past and present. Visitors also appreciated the huge amount of work that had gone into the exhibition. The amazing panoramic view of the church above, another feat of technology, begins to show just a part of what was on offer. Add to that the tours, records to discover, amazing craftwork, children's quiz, and the teas, (raising £2000 for funds for the Church Restoration and more for Children's Hospice South West, Freedom Centre, Taw Community Welcome and Scouts) you have some picture of what the 'Marwood Past and Present' gave to Marwood during August. Thank you Margaret for wanting this to happen and keeping us together to make it happen! (September will be a time of caution for the Church and will only be open Thursdays and Sundays.)
Finally though and sadly the Muddiford Inn will be closing its doors again on 12th September. After a whirlwind of 18 months at the helm, Allan and Sean have decided it's time to leave The Muddiford Inn. They will be very sadly missed. During their eventful time of lockdown, 'freezing' service outdoors, and gallons of sanitizer gel, they have still managed to achieve a Tripadvisor Travellers' award, particularly for their Sunday lunches and their signature Espetada dish! Allan and Sean thank their staff team and all their customers, past and present, as well as wishing the new landlords every success. We wish them both well and know they will leave a large hole in our community.
Please look for any updates and new adverts on the website and share any news with us, Best wishes, June Tamlyn and the Marwood Matters Team.

Pop-Up Bar at the 3 Village Family Fun Run this Saturday. This will start at 15:00 in the garden of The Old Rectory, which is just past the Church Hall on the right hand side. BBQ food will be available, freshly prepared, and there will be live music featuring The Wyldwoods and others from about 16:00.
The pop-up bar will only sell a limited range of drinks; prosecco and draft GT Ales beer. This is because we will need to keep prosecco supplies in the fridge at the Church Hall and bring across as ordered.
At the moment, the weather forecast is looking promising. If this changes it may be necessary to move the live music into the Church Hall. If this happens, we will move the bar into this building.
Our next visits will be on Tue 7th Sept, 5th Oct, 2nd Nov and 30th Nov, at the usual time and place:
Marwood Church 14:10 - 14:40
You can find our full timetable with all visit dates for 2021 on our website - www.devonlibraries.org.uk/web/arena/mobilelibraries. If you have any queries please contact us at Tiverton Library on 01884 244644 or via email: email@example.com
We are looking forward to seeing you soon,

Marwood Poor Lands Charity (including Ackland's Gift)
A small annual income is obtained from the lease of 7.5 acres of land in Marwood. Due to the continual social change, the reasons for applying for grants has changed, but the basics are similar; e.g. assist with the relief of sudden distress, sickness or infirmity; assistance with special payments; and now, particularly at this time, as a result of the Coronavirus.
If you wish to apply, or know someone who you think is eligible (please ensure you have their permission) contact: Malcolm J Measures (Trustee and Clerk to the Charity) e-mail: email@example.com
