Telscombe Town Councillors and staff were sad to learn that Ron Chiverton passed away peacefully yesterday, Wednesday 24th April 2019. He was a long standing resident of Telscombe Town and stood for a term as a Town Councillor in 2003. He was the first Freeperson of the town, being awarded the honour by Telscombe Town Council at a meeting in January 2015. He was a member of the local British Legion and often undertook talks at local schools about his wartime experiences. He also attended many local services to promote the town. At a ceremony held at Telscombe Civic Centre in December 2017 Ron, along with another local resident Mr Maurice Abrams, was awarded France’s top military honour, the Legion d’Honneur and was presented with the medal by Honorary French Consul Capt. Francois Jean. We send condolences to his family. He will be missed by many – may he rest in peace.

The sheep will be returning to The Tye on Monday 1st April. They are an important part of management of the Tye. They make sure the scrub is grazed efficiently and chalk grassland is maintained. This grassland is important to many protected species of animals and plants and is unique to this part of the Country.
The sheep will be pregnant, which makes them very susceptible to stress. If they are chased by a dog, they could give birth prematurely or even abort. Please make sure your dog is on a lead and under control at all times, especially around the sheep.
Please be especially careful at this time.
