Many of our older PDF documents may not meet accessibility standards – for example, they may not be structured so they are accessible to a screen reader. The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they are not essential to providing our services. However, if there is a particular document you need converting please let us know and if at all possible, we will update it.
Any new PDFs we publish will meet accessibility standards.

YCE GRANT RECEIVED!
Wembury Parish Council are pleased to announce that the Yealm Community Energy Fund has granted us £2500 to go towards the planting of hundreds of tree and bush whips. This planting will not only enhance the park and encourage more walking but also contribute to increasing carbon uptake from the atmosphere. As an added bonus the wildlife will also greatly benefit from the increased habitat.
We would like to extend a very big thanks to Yealm Community Energy for their kind grant.
