Welcome to the Whitestone Devon websitecreated 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.
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.

WHITESTONE SHORT MAT BOWLS
FRIENDLY MATCH WITH EXMINSTER Another friendly match against the league players of Exminster took place on Tuesday 22nd March at Whitestone. With good luck running our way, we managed to win 46 - 27 after 36 ends.
The good humoured game made for a very pleasant evening and we all tucked into some lovely refreshments at half time.
We look forward to the return match. Well done, Whitestone.
If you can’t stand litter, this is for you!
Saturday 15th October 2016 10.00 am
Our second litter pick this year has been organised for Saturday, 15th October. No experience necessary! We mostly pick in groups of two and three, each covering both sides of a section of road of around 2/3rds of a mile − so it is not too arduous! Teignbridge District Council will again be supporting our efforts by providing gloves, protective vests and pickers and road warning signs.
Meet at the Parish Hall for 10.00 and finish by 12.00. Litter and a sense of achievement guaranteed!
It’s fun and really satisfying. Make a difference! Come and join us. Bring a friend!
