Knife Amnesty 17 - 23 July 2017
This information has been sent on behalf of Devon and Cornwall Police Devon and Cornwall Police is supporting Operation Sceptre, a Home Office instigated week of action aimed at detecting knife related crime, increasing intelligence, community engagement and public reassurance, the main part of which is a knife amnesty The policing teams taking part are Cornwall; South Devon; Exeter, East and Mid Devon; North and West Devon and Plymouth. Members of the public can dispose of unwanted bladed items, without fear of prosecution, such as knives, zombie knives, swords, kitchen knives and unwanted collectibles. There will be collection bins at the following police enquiry offices: Heavitree Road in Exeter; Torquay; Charles Cross and Crownhill in Plymouth; Camborne, St Austell and Bodmin in Cornwall and at Barnstaple in the North and West Devon policing area You can find the address of your nearest police enquiry office on the Devon and Cornwall Police website, here: dc.police.uk/PEO Chief Superintendent David Thorne, based in Plymouth, said: This amnesty is for any kind of knife or bladed item that could be used as a weapon. If you possess a knife that has no legitimate use in your home, hobby or profession, please use this opportunity to get rid of it, otherwise it is potentially dangerous to you and others. There is no reason for anyone to carry a knife in public. Someone carrying a knife is much more likely to get stabbed themselves as situations which involve weapons can quickly get out of control. The messages are clear: There is no excuse for carrying a knife, and getting any unwanted ones out of circulation is important to help keep our communities safe, so bin the knife.

Grass cutting in Willand - It could cost you more money!
You will have noted that Devon County Council have now cut all they are going to do on the verges in Willand. Mid Devon District Council have cut areas of public green open space which come under their jurisdiction to what they call an acceptable standard. A number of residents have contacted the Parish Council; some have contacted our Devon County Councillor direct expressing their concerns. What do you think? The Parish Council has been approached to pass over monies to MDDC towards the cost of cutting grass more often. Fuller details are awaited. Whereas this year some money may be able to be found in reserve, in future it may mean the Council Tax rising further for the Parish Council share or something will have to go like the Christmas light or improvements to areas of play or open space looked after by the Parish Council. More detail will be in the next Willand Magazine but the last time we raised the issue only ONE person responded. The Parish Council need your views please. Please circulate to all your friends and contacts in the village. If we hear nothing we will have to make a decision which may not be to peoples liking.
