We lead on news this week that the ’One Council’ proposal has been rejected as South Hams District Council and West Devon Borough Council vote to not create a unified local authority stretching from Tavistock to Totnes.

Also in this week we report on Modbury RBL’s Poppy Appeal and the work of Ivybridge and Modbury firefighters tackling a blaze in a slurry pit.

As usual there is also the family announcements, public notices, letters to the editor, Village Voice pages, clubs and societies and what’s on, plus much more inside.

Remember if you can’t get to the shops, or you have moved out of the area, you can get all South Hams Newspapers online here: http://www.southhams-today.co.uk/subscribe.cfm
