I’m Emma Stockley, the Community Heritage Officer. Now that myself and the rest of the MTMTE team are in post and settling into our roles at our Princetown base, work has started in earnest to get four of the fourteen parish projects off the ground and running. Over the last few weeks, we have been looking at some of the project proposals that have been put forward and will be meeting with Moretonhampstead and Ashburton to look at how these projects fit within MTMTE and its broad aims. Some members of the MTMTE team made a site visit to North Bovey two weeks ago and have since been providing advice and guidance to complement North Bovey’s project ideas. We’re looking forward to attending a parish meeting soon to discuss the ideas with the wider community. A visit to Lustleigh Archives last week was a great opportunity for us to meet some of those taking part in Parishscapes and to discuss ideas and locations for potential Parishscapes projects. Between them, the four parishes have come up with a fantastically varied array of ideas and we hope that some (if not all!) will be underway very soon. If you are from another parish in the MTMTE area, we’d love to hear from you and discuss your ideas and how we might be able to support them.
