- NTTC Office Closure – our office is closed to the public for the foreseeable future. We continue to do the work of the Council, please read our open letter to residents explaining this issue in more detail. The best way to contact us while the office is closed is to send an email – you can do this via our ‘Contact Us’ page.
- Be a Good Neighbour – H for Help initiative. Every household in the North Tawton Parish should very shortly receive this leaflet, it is intended that those who need help display the ‘H’ in a prominent window, and hopefully someone nearby will respond – have a look at the leaflet for more information. If you don’t get this leaflet delivered, please contact the Council and we’ll make sure you get one. If you see the red H displayed in a neighbour’s window, please make contact with them and see what help they need, if you can do so safely.
