Photograph Simon Ellery

A driver had a miraculous escape when his car breached the bank just

above Ninneywell on Countisbury Hill early on Saturday morning, 9 th March falling

about 1,000 feet and ending up on the rocky beach at Sillery Sands. The driver

managed to get out of his vehicle and walked to a nearby holiday apartment to get

help. He was lucky to survive as the damage to his vehicle was extensive.

Lynmouth Coastguard Search and Rescue backed up by Ilfracombe Coastguard,

Lynton Fire, Barnstaple Fire SRT and Police and Ambulance Services were called and

the driver was transferred to hospital firstly by ambulance then air ambulance. Cliff

technicians were deployed to the beach at the request of the Police to make sure

there were no other casualties. The A39 was closed during the emergency services

operation.

A great example of joint services working together and we are fortunate to have these

people in the area. Well done to everyone involved !

Online safety for kids

Dear Readers

This month I am going to talk about ‘momo’ and online safety for kids, and will assume

most parents have a minimal knowledge of momo.

In short momo was a nasty, disturbing message claiming to appear on kids’ video

screens telling them to kill themselves. It apparently started on WhatsApp then

migrated to YouTube. Eventually after some research the Police said it was a vicious

hoax set up by hackers looking for information. This spread through my school very

quickly, did what it was designed to do, and caused worry and panic. We increased our

security filters and blocked anyone looking for these videos or anything with ‘momo’ in

a search. You can check for yourselves on any search engine to see the finer points of

this hoax. Unfortunately the media made things worse by advertising it and then a few

other people made their own videos, uploaded them and made an already bad

situation much worse.

This is a textbook example of how fear can be spread amongst parents and kids.

Thankfully it has all died down but ultimately we, as parents, grandparents, teachers

and guardians, have to take what we read or hear with a pinch of salt. Investigate for

ourselves, verify everything and use technology to our advantage and make it work for

us.

Do you really know what your kids are watching or playing? Do you sit with them when

they are watching videos? Do you know what the PG rating is of the game they are

playing? For example, did you know the PG rating of the video game Fortnite is 12?

Did you also know it is illegal in the USA to have a social media account under the age

of 13? Worryingly, a growing number of European children under the age of 11 are

using social media. You wouldn’t let a 13 year old buy cigarettes so why let a young

child use Facebook? There is a lot of online content available to kids and we should

always try to be aware of what they are watching. I know that I occasionally take my

eyes off my kids’ whilst they are watching videos but their iPads are locked down,

however, this isn’t foolproof as things can still get through.

If you have any questions please do contact me, that’s Andy, at

ICT@lyntonadvertiser.com

What happens to your recycling?

Ever wonder where your recyling goes or what it becomes, after you've thrown it in your container

or bank?

Paper: Paper is pulped and used to make new paper materials including newspapers and

magazines. It can recycled into fresh new paper in just 7 days!

Glass: Glass is sorted into different colours, washed and broken into small pieces and

reformed to make new glass bottles and jars.

Textiles: Good quality textiles are reused and sent to African markets and lower quality

textiles are turned into rags and cloths for cleaning.

Plastic: Plastic is sorted into different grades and then sent to the correct reprocessor where

it is turned into new plastic items such as bottles, fleeces and food containers.

Cans: Cans are melted in a furnace and then used to make new metal products such as tins,

cans and even aeroplanes

Cardboard: Cardboard is pulped and then reprocessed into corrugated card or cardboard

boxes.

Electrical Items: Electrical items are stripped down to their component materials e.g. plastics

and metals. These are then reprocessed into new items depending on the grade of material.

Typical items include traffic cones, new steel products or even new circuit boards.

Food Waste: Garden waste is sent for processing at a Windrow composting facility. Food

waste is sent to an anaerobic digestion facility where it heats to high temperatures and

decomposes with the absence of oxygen.

Lynton Police April 2019 Newsletter

Police Surgeries Lynton Police hold surgeries so that residents and

visitors can come along and chat with PCSO 30366 Grace Cleverdon

about anything which might be worrying them. The surgeries are held

in Lynton, Brendon and Challacombe. Starting from 2nd May 2019

the Brendon surgery will change day and time to Thursday 2nd May

5.30-6pm. Hopefully this will be a more suitable day and time for

residents to come along and have a chat. Please see dates and times of surgeries below.

Theft from motor vehicle Devon and Cornwall Police are urging the public to be aware of

opportunist thieves looking for valuables left in vehicles. Already this year in the Wistlandpound

Reservoir area vehicles have been broken into by having a window smashed and items stolen

from within. Don’t tempt the opportunist thief by leaving items of value on display or under

coats on the back seat, be mindful of who might be observing you and leave things out of sight

in the boot, do not place items under the seats, and remember that loose change left in view

will also tempt someone. Your vehicle is a shop window to the opportunist thief. Marking your

property and registering it at immobilise.com is an extremely effective way of deterring thieves.

Keep dogs under effective control A reminder for all dog owners living or exercising their pets

in the Exmoor area that it’s Lambing Season. When you take your dog into the outdoors always

ensure it does not disturb wildlife, farm animals, horses or other people by keeping it under

effective control and take particular care in controlling your dog around areas with sheep.

Please be aware sheep worrying is an offence. It is legal for landowners to shoot dogs to

protect their livestock provided there was no other way of stopping the dog worrying their

animals and they report the killing to the police within 48 hours. Livestock also includes

domestic fowl, geese or ducks.

room only at times with the good folk from all around flocking to get a decent breakfast. It was a

fantastic morning and due to the generosity of those that came we raised over £500, the lion’s

share of which will be going to the North Devon Hospice. Thank you to those that came to

support the cause and a really big thank you to my fantastic Village Hall Committee who bought

the food, set the hall up, cooked the food, served the food, collected the empty plates, washed

up and then cleared the hall away afterwards. Amazing gang of people. Margaret Purchase

Project to recreate lost Exmoor gardens gets underway

A project to recreate a 200-year-old picturesque

garden in the former royal forest of Exmoor, near

Simonsbath, gets underway following major

funding from the Western Somerset LEADER

programme and Exmoor National Park Authority.

The garden was once the vision of wealthy

businessman John Knight who, in 1818,

purchased a vast area of remote, uninhabited

wilderness formerly used by the Crown for

hunting and largely untouched since the Bronze Age. He set about building a grand

mansion amidst an elaborate „Picturesque Landscape‟ – a concept central to the

Romantic Movement focused on harnessing natural beauty to enhance the sense of

drama in the landscape.

For reasons that aren‟t well understood his dream was never finished and his

importance in shaping the Exmoor landscape largely overlooked until letters and

documents dating from the time were uncovered in a loft near Kidderminster in 2016.

These revealed ambitious plans to reclaim a vast area of remote valleys, mires, moors

and woodland, along with the creation of a bespoke road and canal network, plus

numerous buildings and farmsteads.

Even by modern-day standards it was a remarkable feat – with a 29-mile-long

boundary wall, at least 12 miles of roads, two farmhouses, two canals, networks of

land drains and the cultivation of more than 2,500 acres of moorland all documented

as completed within the first 18 months. But amid faltering finances, a family feud

over inheritance and his wife‟s ill health, the mansion remained unfinished, whilst the

once awe-inspiring gardens sank back into obscurity. Now, in the year of the

70th anniversary of the Parliamentary Act that gave rise to the UK‟s National Parks, a

team of volunteers working alongside the Simonsbath Programme Steering Group

and Exmoor National Park Authority, hope to bring back to life the gardens through

work to reopen one of the original picturesque walks and restore historic buildings

that formed part of the original garden.

Rob Wilson-North, Exmoor National Park Authority‟s Head of Conservation and Access,

said: “The lost gardens of Ashcombe are a very rare example of a Picturesque

landscape – a concept that underpinned the Romantic Movement and helped put the

countryside at the very heart of Britishness, setting the tone for the creation of the

UK‟s National Parks over a century later.”

Anyone interested in helping with the project should contact Patrick Watts-Mabbot

on 07973 727469 or email getinvolved@exmoor-nationalpark.gov.uk

LYN VALLEY WILDLIFE WATCH

Larking about in Lynton

I grew up in a city. The only birds I ever saw in our tiny back garden

were pigeons. The first time I heard about skylarks was at school

when we studied Shelley’s famous poem which seemed to me to

go on forever. It was only when I moved to live in the country

outside Bath that I understood Shelley’s passion. Climbing the hill

behind our house we reached fields used for growing various crops. And in spring they

were alive with skylarks, their song almost deafening, you heard it way before you got

there, a beautiful sound.

Research showed that their numbers – like most of our songbirds - are plummeting.

In the UK we now have only 10% of the skylarks we had 30 years ago. The main

reason is changes in farming habits with winter grown crops becoming increasingly

widespread. These small rather plain birds are ground nesters, well camouflaged to

hide away amongst the stubble where they produce 3 to 6 eggs in June. Crops grown

so early result in greenery that is too dense for the birds to use. Though farmland

birds, they do also use heathlands and dunes, but even these are becoming more

difficult to find.

So I was delighted when - walking in the valley one day last February - I heard that

excited trilling way up in an amazingly blue sky. So far up that I couldn’t see it! I gather

that’s good. The singing is the males showing off and the higher they fly, the more

complex their song, the more impressed the females will be. There were only a

couple of them, but it was a good start. And at least I knew they were in the right

place to nest and breed.

The story of the field outside Bath didn’t have a happy ending. One spring day when

the birds were a little quieter, dropping down frequently to their nests, obviously

feeding their young, the farmer decided to manure the fields. In one day he flattened

the whole area, running over nests as he did so. Many of the locals were upset,

especially as he had notices everywhere about being part of a stewardship scheme.

Complaints poured in. Excuses were made. The birds were confused, circled around,

were silent, shocked. Then they moved off. The following year a few skylarks

returned, but not many. The year after there were none. They’d gone.

Would love it if one day the valley could be as full of song as that field was. Here’s

hoping.

The Pleasure Dome Theatre Company returns to the

Valley of Rocks with a new production of Lorna Doone

The Pleasure Dome Theatre Company are

delighted to be returning to the Valley of

Rocks this summer with their contribution

to the Lorna Doone Festival. They will be

reviving and redeveloping their 2017 hit

production of Lorna Doone. Expect

stunning scenery, beautiful costumes,

atmospheric music and pure drama as we

bring R.D Blackmore's classic romance to

life in the breath-taking Valley of Rocks.

We will be holding open auditions at Lynton Town Hall to find local performers who

would like to be a part of this production. There are two sessions on Sunday 28th

April. 10:00 until 1:00 and 2:00 until 5:00. These will be informal work-shop style

auditions where we will do some text work, some physical work and some music from

the show.

We hope that it should be a fun and enjoyable way into our process and as much an

opportunity for prospective performers to see whether this is a project, they’d like to

be part of, as it is to help us cast.

You must have good availability from 5th August and be completely free in the

evenings for the run opening on 20th August till 31st performing every night other

than Monday with Sunday matinées.

Working at the Valley of Rocks is tiring but we hope to provide a valuable and exciting

experience as well. Here is what a cast member said of our 2017 show: “My

appreciation goes to you and your team - we were made to feel welcome and treated

as equals. There are stories out there of how professionals don't like acting with

amateurs but your company is different. Scott was a great combination of open and

friendly with that professional intention of constant improvement - this permeated the

whole production. I learned a lot from the rehearsals and the support of those behind

the scenes and the openness of the actors made the performances enjoyable.”

If this sounds like something you’d relish, please email

pleasuredometheatre@gmail.com and specify which session, morning or afternoon

you want to attend.

We really look forward to hearing from you.

Creative Director.

Lynmouth singers pitch in to help save bridge

A fundraising campaign to reinstate a much-missed

footbridge in Exmoor National Park’s stunning East

Lyn Valley, near Lynmouth, has soared past the

£30K halfway mark following a flurry of support

from local groups. This includes the all-female

singing group the LynTones who generously

donated all £680 of the proceeds from their 2018

performances.

Laura Whitfield from the LynTones said: “We’re a friendly community vocal group who

just love to sing. Each year we pick a different cause to support, with the Woodside

Bridge chosen last year. Many of us have grown up in the area and it’s great to be

helping put back a piece of local history that means people can once again

experience this lovely circular walk. It’s a wonderful place to live.”

The Lyn Community Development Trust (LCDT)’s Woodside Bridge Appeal aims to

raise £60K needed for a new bridge at Woodside after the old one wore out and had

to be removed in 2016. It will mean those out for a beautiful riverside stroll will once

again be able to return to the town via a short circular route through Middleham

Memorial Gardens, created in memory of victims of the famous 1952 flood.

All donations, including any Gift Aid, were being match-funded by Exmoor National

Park Authority until the end of March with the Lyn Masonic Lodge, the Lyn Art and

Craft Society, Sandra Collier and yoga group, plus many generous individuals, among

those to have donated recently. sThe campaign has previously attracted support

from Julia Bradbury after the route featured in her hit TV series Britain’s Best

Walks and online portal The Outdoor Guide, and also TV presenter Caroline Quentin

who took time to record a video appeal after finding out about the Bridge through her

role as President of the Campaign for National Parks.

The LCDT is arranging a series of fundraising events for 2019 including two National

Trust guided-walks exploring the flora and fauna of the East Lyn River on 13th April

and 8th June, a joint event with the Lynmouth Flood Memorial Hall on 20th April to

remember the historic overland launch of the Louisa lifeboat in 1899 and the flood

disaster of 1952, and a Race Night at The Bath Hotel on Saturday 18th May. An event

at Hunters Inn is also planned for later in the year.

Donate to the Woodside Bridge Appeal via CareMoor for Exmoor at www.exmoornationalpark.gov.uk/caremoor,

in person at the National Park Centre in Lynmouth or

for Gift Aid via the LCDT at wonderful.org/appeal/woodsidebridgereplacementappeal-

At the 'Cottage Inn' the other night a bunch of us

surrendered ourselves to the gentle and peaceful swamp

that Kent Duchaine takes with him on his wide- ranging

musical journeys.

An excellent and unusual guitarist with a repertoire that is

mainly Delta style blues he proudly projects his Deep South

origins by way of his many anecdotes centred around his

native Georgia. Tales of a swampy, lake studded landscape

full of 'gators, 'skeeters, snakes and hummers (Hummingbirds).

These are all delivered in a soft Southern drawl that lulls his audience into a

relaxed mood that was enhanced by the fabulous 'Fat Belly' ales that genial host Gary

provides.

But there was no chance of getting bogged down thanks to Kent's dynamic style and

musical excellence. A lean and wiry figure with the build of a long- distance- runner he

hops around in a lithe and youthful manner that appears to belie the maturity that his

countenance would suggest. Perhaps I am wrong. Maybe he is only 30 years old. If so,

he must have had an enjoyable and enviable lifestyle.

Being his second visit to our soggy shores everyone knew what to expect but were still

moved by his great act. He plays all over the world and is getting really good reviews

wherever he goes. We are lucky to have him as a regular act. Thanks, Gary for another

memorable night of top- class entertainment in lovely surroundings.

Gary tells me that plans for his annual beer and music festival are progressing well.

Accommodation businesses nearby are reporting good bookings from visitors who

were here last year and are keen to repeat the experience of a fantastic festival in

safe, comfortable surroundings in what is surely one of the most beautiful venues

going. Gary plans to stage the festival on the weekend of June 14, 15 and 16. So

cancel that camping trip to the Queen's Balmoral Estate: It always rains there anyway.

News from the Exmoor Pony Centre

Ashwick, Dulverton TA22 9QE

The Pony Centre opened to the public in February and got off to a

great start with a busy Activity Day on the 21st. The ponies were

happy to meet the visitors after a quiet winter and enjoyed being

made a fuss of. We were able to show off our lovely new petting

pens which have been funded by the grant we received from

Tesco Bags of Help and are now nearing completion. With new

fencing, weather proof non-slip flooring and covering gazebos it

will make the whole experience of meeting and grooming the

ponies much more pleasant for all our visitors including those

with restricted mobility or wheelchair users. We will soon be

adding multi-height media boards which will give information about the ponies and

explain the work we do helping unwanted moorbred foals.

And we have had yet more great news from Tesco. We have just heard we were voted

second in the Bags of Help scheme at the Ilfracombe store and have been awarded

£2,000 towards setting up a mobile pony roadshow. This will help us equip a trailer

with a heavy-duty, weatherproof gazebo large enough to take a pony plus handler and a

display of educational and marketing materials. We will then be able to expand the

area we can cover and travel further afield to events, shows, schools and groups in

other areas. We would particularly like to reach more communities in Devon as a third

of Exmoor lies in this county, and Exmoor ponies are very much a part of the Devon

heritage. A huge thank you to everyone who voted for us!

We have a full programme of events lined up for the coming year:

Sunday, 14th April - Activity Day at the Pony Centre - 11am - 3pm

In addition to our usual activities we will have an Easter Quiz Trail which all the family

can play. Answer all the questions and claim your chocolate reward.

Thursday, 30th May - Activity Afternoon at the Pony Centre - 12 midday - 3pm

Sunday, 28th July - 11am - 3pm - Celebrate Summer and the 13th year of the Pony

Centre

Activities available at ALL the events at the Centre are: Pony Rides (the minimum age

for riding is 4 years old and there is a 12 stone weight limit).

Pony Grooming; Crafts & Games;

Refreshments (cakes, sandwiches) served by our volunteers in our warm Green Room

Building. We are open every day except Tuesday and Saturday so do come along and

see us sometime.
