Those of you with keen eyesight may have noticed that the village signposts have had their ‘fingers’ renewed. The signpost at the southern T-junction, between Apple Tree Cottage and Guppys Cottage, has had all 3 fingers renewed. One finger had to be completely replaced, with new wood and metal letters (organised by Gerard Wyllys). The other two were repainted and letters replaced, by James Mallett and Richard Bowen.
The north-pointing finger of the signpost at the Splash was repainted and letters replaced, by Brett Townsend. These works were approved and organised by the TM&L PC.
Many thanks to the 4 skilled villagers. Now we know where we can go!

The cardboard model of All Saints Church by the water splash, which has weathered the rain and wind, is to draw attention to the fact that the Church roof needs repairing at a cost of approximately £50,000. Any donations gratefully received.
This year’s Steam Fair is the ‘50-500’, being the 50th anniversary with 500 steam engines – a Guiness World Record. Please be careful in our village roads due to the increase in traffic (and speeds!). The GDSF site map is shown here gdsf-site-map-2018
After a hot summer, it was surprising to see such a good display of blooms, arrangements, vegetables, photos etc. The results can be found above in the Flower Show – Score Tables. Well done to all who entered and the organisers.
Andy Eastaugh, the Race Director, says:-
I’d like to express my heartfelt thanks to all of those from Tarrants Monkton and Launceston (and beyond) who assisted with the Tarrant Valley 10 last Sunday. The event cannot run smoothly without the enormous number of villagers who help prepare the event and/or give up their peaceful Sunday morning as the village puts on its running shoes on behalf of the TV10’s good causes.
In blistering heat and unbroken sunshine, 166 runners completed the main race and 28 children (plus a few parents!) the 1 mile race. I am proud to announce that, provisionally, the event has made a profit of £2,800 which will be divided equally between our 3 good causes; The Louis Ross Foundation, Bus Shelter Dorset and All Saints Church Tarrant Monkton. Another fantastic result!
