Due to the Corona virus outbreak Holcombe Rogus Parish Council will be holding virtual meetings using Zoom.  The agendas will be published on the website and possibly but not definitely on the Notice Boards.  Members of the Public are still invited to attend and details will be shown on the agenda.  The date for the audit to be published has also slipped by several months but all papers will be shown on the website when they have been approved by the Councillors.  Please do not hesitate to contact the Clerk  clerk@holcomberogus-pc.gov.uk or the Chair chair@holcomberogus-pc.gov.uk if you have any queries. In the meantime Councillors ask that you listen to the Government safe and remain home when possible.

  During this period the Clerk will be publishing monthly a Register of Decisions that show the payments that have been made outside of meetings but approved through delegated authority.  This will show in the finance section.

The first mile of the navigable Grand Western Canal Country Park is in Devon within the Parish of Holcombe Rogus. It is the tempting start of the beautiful countryside corridor through varied countryside and villages to Tiverton. Holcombe Rogus has popular footpaths to the canal towpath and easy road access to its two canal-side car parks. The canal’s limestone transporting history started on Monday 16th April 1810 when the first shovel broke the ground in Holcombe Rogus followed by great village celebrations at Holcombe Court three days later. More visitor information about the canal is available from Devon County Council’s website; http://www.devon.gov.uk/grand_western_canal

Holcombe Rogus has a population of 405 on the electoral roll and includes Holcombe Court, one of the finest Tudor Houses in Devon. The nearby Church is 15C and within the village is the Prince of Wales Pub, Webbers Church of England Primary School, a shop and post-office, a garage and a thriving village hall.
