Welcome to our Parish of Mary Tavy
Welcome to the Mary Tavy Parish Council website. Mary Tavy is a community full of action – with primary school, pubs, post office and village shop, Coronation Hall, recreation ground, snooker, twinning association, over 55s drop-in, churches and WI – a proper village! We hope you will find this useful if you live in Mary Tavy or are just visiting.
Mary Tavy a une association prospérée de jumelage, ayant été jumelée avec Méry–Corbon en Normandie pendant plus de trente années.
Calling all Villagers 'New Front Page Banner Required!'
We would like to have a new front page banner picture; (see the one above). We could use one of our own, but the Parish Council would love it for a member of the public to have the chance to say,"that picture is mine", "I took that picture"!
So get your camera's out and start taking pictures!
Note: The dimensions of the picture above is fixed, so the main part of the image must be able to fit into that space after cropping.
Closing Date. 18th September 2015
Only people from the Village can enter, so you'll need to tell us your house when you enter.
Judged by the General Public
Your Community Matters Event
Saturday 19th September 10am to 4pm
Coronation Hall and Recreation Ground
ENTRY IS FREE and no charge to join in any activities.
Groups on the day:
Action on Hearing Loss, Arts Pop Up, Brentor Garden Club, Chicks, Dartmoor Gliding Society, Devon & Cornwall Police Archive, Devon Wildlife Trust, Drink Wise · Age Well, Jubilee Heritage Group, Mary Tavy Jubilee Group, Mary Tavy Parish Council, Mary Tavy Twinning, Mary Tavy WI, Methodist Chapel, Recreation Ground Trust, Ring and Ride, Tavistock Archery Club, Tavistock Wheelers, Tavy Youth Club, The Tavonians Theatre Company, Tor & Tavy WI, Transition Tavistock, West Devon Borough Council, West Devon Community and Voluntary Services,
Come along for a fun day, with lots of things to do, activities to join in with, and information to be
gathered. We're bringing together groups, clubs, organisations, services and businesses, most of them very local
plus some from a little further afield that matter to this community.
Many of the groups will be showing off what they do so there will be opportunities for joining in - you can learn Salsa dancing or do some willow weaving in an arts pop-up tent; Tavistock Wheelers will allow you to have a go on bikes mounted on stands, or you can have a go at short mat bowls, do a bit of morris dancing and explore a glider up close.
A fascinating display from the Police archive will include a Police 'Tardis', kids can try on historic uniforms, and you can be put in the stocks.
There will also be representatives from many local organisations and charities which provide services to those in need, so you can talk to West Devon Borough Council, find out what the Charity Chicks is all about, and perhaps think of becoming a volunteer. There'll even be a car boot sale and there'll be local food and drink.
