Citizen and Business of the Year

The Annual Parish Meeting was held on 23rd April at the Institute where we were pleased to congratulate Peter Harris who was awarded Citizen of the Year, as voted for by the parishioners of Ottery St Mary for all his hard work around the town in maintaining the street furniture and bringing matters of importance to the attention of the Town Council. To quote from a nominee, “Peter is a well-known resident of Ottery St Mary. He has worked over the years keeping benches painted and is a mine of information about our town.” Cllr Paul Bartlett (the then Mayor) was delighted to present Peter with a glass trophy.

In addition, the new award, `the Business of the Year` was presented to `Tickety Boo` (due to the equality of votes for a number of the businesses in the town, the Rev Steve Weston had picked out `Tickety Boo` from the names contained in an envelope).

The Mayor thanked all the nominees and everyone involved in making the awards a success so congratulations to them all

SAND BAGS: HOW TO GET THEM AND HOW TO USE THEM

If you are at risk of flooding, don’t wait until it is too late to act.
Ottery St Mary Town Council has a limited supply of bags from East Devon DC. You can collect them from the Town Council offices during normal office hours (Monday to Friday, between 10.00am and 1.00pm). You will need to use your own sand.
Sandbags offer some protection by keeping water out for short periods when used together with plastic sheeting and garden soil can be used in emergencies as a substitute for sand.
There’s lots of helpful advice about using sand bags available from the Environment Agency

West Hill Parish Council

From 1st April 2017, a new Parish Council for West Hill came into effect and therefore West Hill is no longer part of the Parish of Ottery St Mary.



Footpath/Cycle Way

The Council has been working hard to achieve a new Footpath/Cycle path from Butts Road to Otter Nurseries. We hope to achieve this in due course.
