Jack of an unlikely collection of trades . . .

Former son of the village, Simon Hill, has returned to Belstone, having “retired” from Primary Teaching. He is offering his skills in the areas of Gardening, Home and Small Business Computing, and Key Stage 1 to 4 Home Tutoring.
Alongside the computing business, he will be hosting a series of free, informal, drop-in sessions at Belstone Community Café, in Belstone Village Hall, every Thursday from 10am until 12pm – to answer questions about computing, give advice, provide short tutoring sessions, demonstrate possibilities and suggest solutions to problems. Feel free to call in and chat about absolutely anything computer-related, bringing your device with you if you like.



Call the Service for a home fire safety check
Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service is promoting its Home Fire Safety Check scheme in this area.
Members of the public can contact the Service for fire safety advice and may be eligible for a home visit from a trained member of staff.

A key feature of the check is to ensure people having working smoke alarms in their home which are most suitable for their circumstances.You should make sure you have at least one smoke alarm on every level of your home, preferably in hallways and landings.  Placing smoke detectors near to sleeping areas and in rooms where there are electrical appliances could give you the extra warning you need.
It’s also important to remember that smoke alarms don’t last forever. The power might work, but the mechanism deteriorates with time. So whether they are battery operated or wired to the mains, to work at their best they should be replaced every ten years.

Devon & Somerset Fire & Rescue Service offers these five smoke alarm top tips:

The Service is also urging carers and people who keep a close eye on less able relatives to check that these homes have enough smoke alarms in the right places too.

For more information on Service’s free home fire safety advice service, call 0800 05 02 999.

After a long wait, while finer details were being sorted, work has finally begun on Marion Walpole's new tearoom! Work began on Monday 20th July in the Sunday School room, behind the current Methodist Chapel, in the centre of Belstone. Built in the mid 1920s and unused for around half a century, it is now being renovated and will be opened by Marion later in 2015 as ‘The Old School Tearoom’, offering traditional cream teas, cakes and scones. Congratulations Marion and we look forward to visiting the new tearoom!
