  1. I lived here for a few years around 9 years ago, friendly locals and still had its post office and pub running! A great place to live.

  2. Having left the village to join the RN in 1954 I find the minutes of the council very interesting and really look forward to them.

    I cannot remember such democracy being exercised at that time. Such as, where all are allowed to attend meetings and even given the chance of an input.

    Keep up the good work and a big “Thank You” to all the Councillors for keeping all things in order.

    And also to the webmaster for keeping us all so well informed of what is going on

    Much appreciated

  6. Hello,
    During the course of family history research I’ve discovered that my Great-grandfather was born and lived in Chapel Street, Rockland St Peters. In the 1871 Census, he’s listed as an 8 yearold “Scholar” but this pre-dates the building of the school (in 1875?). As was common across the country, the education of children was often provided by the church. Is anything known about where a school or school room was, back in 1871. Many thanks. Dave Chillistone
