Stokeinteignhead Parish Council
We have the pleasure of being able to share this wonderful poem, written by Stokeinteignhead Parish Councillor Fred Cornes. The poem was shared by BBC Spotlight last night (15th April) and we hope that it can bring some sunshine to you in these very strange times, just as it has to us!
I’m locked in by Corona’s Key
Life seems so hard but then I see
We have our Shop and volunteers
Without them,all could end in tears
Our Pub is lightening all our days
By opening up for “Take Aways”
So when all around is closing down
In City and in local Town
Our Village life is still a joy
Corona Virus can’t destroy
And as we step beyond our doors
If we stop awhile and pause
To look outside,take in the view
I know I’m lucky,don’t you too?
Fields and hedges all around
The birds are singing, joyous sound
All are doing their very best
To find a mate and build a nest
Horses and Riders trotting by
Buzzards wheeling in the sky
Their mewing call is striking fear
In all small mammals hiding near
Tractors working on the land
Farmers planting crops they’ve planned
Cattle now outside at last
Since the winter storms have passed
But when I was told to stay indoors
And Corona Virus was the cause
My first reaction was of rage
To be locked in because of age
But on reflection that’s now changed
No longer do I feel deranged
Corona’s helped me really see
The beauty that’s surrounding me
And volunteers you’ve done a lot
To help me enjoy this lovely spot
I’m thankful for each selfless deed
That brings to me the things I need
To live here in my chosen place
It’s put a smile back on my face
Oh what a joy to live in Stoke
Surrounded by such lovely folk
So many thanks to Shop and Pub
Plus Ed and Graham’s Deane Rd Hub
But the Shop has topped my personal polls
For sending me some toilet rolls.

For up to date information, tailored to Devon, please head to Devon County Council’s website:
As you may be aware, the works in Stokeinteignhead have been delayed due to Western Power Distribution having to cancel their element of the work on Stoke Road due to Storm Dennis repair works.
For this reason the revised programme below has been proposed, with the main change being to delay Stoke Road works to coincide with the Easter school break, eliminating any impact on the school. This programme is yet to be confirmed by the Devon County Council traffic management team, however, initial discussions have not raised any concerns.
