Cash allows new path to link up village network
RESIDENTS in Noss Mayo, Collaton and Butts Park in Newton Ferrers are to benefit from a new path.
The connecting path, which cost £45,000, has come about thanks to a cash injection of £27,000 from the Investing in Devon scheme, which was raised from the sale of Exeter Airport.
Additional money came from the locality budget of Yealmpton county councillor William Mumford and the South Devon Coastal Local Action group and Newton & Noss Parish Council.
The idea was put forward by Newton & Noss Parish Council.

The path will link a remote part of the parish with the main village of Newton Ferrers and Noss Mayo and will enable children to walk to school and parishioners to reach the village safely without walking on a busy, hazardous road.
The plan came about after local landowner, Richard Yonge, kindly offered the Parish Council use of his land and negotiations were successful with Tor Homes for another stretch of land.
Rachael Caunter, head of teaching and learning at Newton Ferrers C of E Primary School said: "We are delighted that this footpath has been created and is now available for the whole community. From a school point of view, the path provides children who live at Butts Park and Collaton with the opportunity to ride or walk to school. This gives them more opportunities to exercise, get some fresh air and enjoy their local environment."
