The Parish of Willand, is situated in the countryside of Mid Devon, approximately 7 miles east of Tiverton. The village straddles the B3181 (the old A38) and is easily accessed from all local areas as well as either Exit 27 or 28 of the M5.
We are on the edge of the picturesque Blackdown Hills and have easy access to Exeter, Taunton, Tiverton and North Devon. Both Exmoor and Dartmoor are less than a one hour drive away
We have a large number of organisations in the village, covering a wide range of activities including, football, tennis, history, art, youth club and a number of social groups.
On this web site we bring together the work of our active Parish Council, the village organisations and local businesses. Please browse our site and find out more.....
Community News and Comment
The Willand Matters web site was set up some 10 years ago for the benefit of the village. It contains a wide range of information and news from the various organisations and businesses in the village. It is currently sponsored and funded by Information Flow Ltd, a village based company to ensure that the services are freely available to all. The site is managed by Ray Ursell, a director of Information Flow and Past Chairman of the Parish Council.
This is your site - let us know what you want to see. We have a page allocated for each organisation or business in the village. If you want a page, please contact me (email@example.com). There is no charge for this and you can update the page yourself. If you are based outside the village, you can advertise on the site for a small fee.
We are also looking for other sponsors in the village to allow us to add more facilities whilst keeping the site free for the village. The running costs for the site and its support is approximately £600 per year and any monies in excess of this will be used to benefit the village. Sponsors logos and links will be added to a slider footer which will run across the bottom of all pages.
