Ric Cheadle New Chair previewA welcome from Ric Cheadle

Having recently taken over from Brian Medhurst as chairman of Yelverton Community Projects, it is timely to thank Brian and Anne for all of their hard work, commitment and imagination over the years in getting Yelvercare, the Village Play Park and the Yelverton Cinema off the ground and running so smoothly. For those who may not have heard of the projects, here's a quick guide:


Anyone living in the Yelverton area can ring and ask for help - this might be with transport, using a computer or mobile phone, dog-walking or simply a visit for a chat. By ringing 07775 695864 between 10am and 1pm Monday to Friday we'll do our very best to arrange help using one of our 120 volunteers. And we are always delighted to welcome new volunteers, so please ring the same number for details.

Yelverton Village Park

The park is run entirely by volunteers and provides a safe and exciting place for youngsters to let off steam. To help run the park and maintain the equipment, we run a monthly lottery - if you haven't signed up yet please get a message to Sarah Watt by ringing 07775 695864. We have now installed a 'MUGA' (Multi Use Games Area) to replacing the football area, and we're fortunate to have been given help to fund this with a bequest from a local resident and one or two community schemes. Again, we're always looking for new volunteers to help keep the park in good shape and we're also replacing the benches in the park so if you would be interested in sponsoring a bench - perhaps to remember a relation - just give us a ring on 07775 695864.

Yelverton Cinema

With a popular 'main release' every month in the church hall and a children's cinema too, there's sure to be something for all to enjoy. The entry price is only £4.00, so why not join up with friends, bring some food and drink along and make an evening of it?


So we're busy! But we are all volunteers and rely on local people offering their time to help other, local people. It's a comforting feeling knowing there's a scheme which might be able to help you when you need it, and it's a great feeling when you've been able to provide that help. Brian has left us a wonderful legacy and it's our job to keep improving it. If you have any questions or would like to offer to help in any way, please do get in touch.

Here's to the next decade!
