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.

Match v Exminster
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!

AUTUMN LITTER PICK

Saturday 15th October 2016 10.00 am

Rain the previous evening and rain in the afternoon but a glorious sunny day yet again for our late season litter pick with magnificent views of the autumn countryside, a well deserved reward for our intrepid team.

Fourteen people turned out on the day although a number who were unable to attend had conducted their own litter picks during the preceding week. A big ‘thank you’ to all involved and to Teignbridge DC for their support but a special note of both welcome and thanks must go to three volunteers from Exeter (West) Lions who came to give us a hand, together with Tilly, a beautiful 12 year old Collie, whose owner had driven all the way from Wellington.

Between us, we collected 16 sacks of litter and discarded rubbish, very few car parts this time but still lots of bottles, cans and wrappers. The number of cigarette ends outside properties where builders were or had been working was also commented upon, something perhaps for householders to keep an eye on.

Thank you again to all those who took part and to those who would have but couldn’t – plus those who couldn’t but did! It is a sad indictment of society that littering is such a problem but it is one that collectively, thanks to you all, we can and do keep in check.
Well done all!
