LATE NIGHT CHRISTMAS SHOPPING EVENT
The eagerly awaited Late Night Christmas Shopping Event will take place on Friday 30th November. This looks like being a fun filled evening with the torchlight parade starting at 6.15pm followed by Mayor, Paul Bartlett saying a few words to remember our friend, Phyllis Baxter. He will also announce the winner of the Shop Window Competition and Best Superhero Shop Assistant, after which the Carnival Queen will switch on the Christmas lights.
We do hope you will all come along and support the local shops and businesses.

SILVER STREET IS OPEN
There are traffic lights each end of Silver Street but you cannot turn right into Silver Street from Broad Street. Some people are already failing to notice the 'No Right Turn' sign at the moment. Cars travelling toward Silver Street from the Tip Hill end of Broad Street need to drive down Mill Street and follow the one way system past Sainsbury so that you can take a LEFT turn on to Silver Street.
Buses are back to their normal routes and stops as from today, with the exception of buses travelling toward Honiton and Axminster. These will stop at the bus-stop opposite the garage, outside Sainsbury, for the time being. Inbound buses toward Exeter will pick up as before, outside the butcher's shop.

Two SILENT SOLDIERS have been installed at the Church and at the Library. These are to commemorate the Centenary of the ending of WW1. They were kindly donated by a local resident and installed by Stuart Phillips from Tickety Boo and his team.
MAYOR ATTENDS SONGS THAT WON THE WAR
The Mayor and Deputy Mayor were delighted to attend a charitable concert performance of Songs That Won The War. The Show took place in the Parish Church on Saturday 10th November to commemorate the 100th year of the ending of the 1st World War. The show was a great success and raised £595 for The British Legion West Hill Branch and the same for The Friends of Ottery St Mary Church after which a glass of wine and finger buffet was served.
This commemorative photograph is of 9 of the ‘relatives’ 9 out of 87 named on the commemorative plaque in the Church taken with The Mayor & Deputy Mayor.

OUR FRIENDS FROM OTARI (JAPAN)
The Mayor welcomed a delegation from Otari in Japan to the Council Offices as part of their programme of activities. The delegation also visited the present site of the bell they gave to Ottery St Mary to mark the friendship between the two towns which started in 1992.
The delegation also experienced the Tar Barrel event on 5th November.
A BIG THANK YOU TO SHAW DOG GROOMING
The Town Council would like to thank Shaw Dog Grooming for its very generous donation towards this year’s Christmas Lights.
