Local people:
  This website was first set up for the Parish Council, but is also for the whole community.  If you are a member of a club or society and would like a webpage on this website, please contact us for further information.  If you are organising an event we can help publicise this with a poster on the Noticeboard.

N.B. This is NOT about the Ottery Help Scheme 



'Screaming padlocks'  may be purchased from Sidmouth Police Station. 

Use the telephone outside the police station to contact a member of staff.

These padlocks cost around £7 each  -  but cheaper than repair after a break-in to an out-building!
