February Mayoral Musings
On Friday 7th February, I was invited along to an Awards Ceremony for a competition run by Dogberry & Finch Books for children who attend schools within the Dartmoor Multi Academy Trust. The children were asked to design a piece of Art/Text that would sit on the official bookmark for the bookshop on the theme of 'how does your favourite book make you feel'? Warmest congratulations to the winners and runners up for their incredible design.
The following week I presented a cheque to 'Westbank' who are doing a lot of work supporting Young Carers in Okehampton. A couple of days later I was honoured to be able to present the prize to North Tawton Primary School who were the runners up at the annual Primary School Quiz Final which is organised by the Rotary Club of Okehampton with the winning team being from Okehampton Primary School. Huge congratulations to all the children who came from lots of different primary schools in the area and took part in the Quiz. The questions certainly weren't easy, yet they all looked like they were having great fun. Lots of very proud family members in the audience.
At the end of the month, I was invited to the 2443 (Okehampton) Squadron Air Cadets' Coffee Morning in the Charter Hall. This was very well supported with lots of delicious cake! As always, the Cadets were impeccably turned out and a real credit to their Squadron.
