There are three tiers of local government with areas of responsibility in Ivybridge - Devon County Council, South Hams District Council and Ivybridge Town Council. Ivybridge is divided into 2 different wards: Ivybridge East and Ivybridge West. The Town Council comprises 16 elected members - 8 for each ward- who work for the town in a voluntary capacity. The person acting as Town Mayor is elected annually in May, and Town Council elections are held every four years.


Christmas Day Lunch

Our celebrations began with a delicious meal and all the trimmings, cooked to perfection by Ray Wilson and served by his enthusiastic team of volunteer helpers. Father Christmas made an appearance - all our guests must have been very good last year as everyone received a gift! Many of our diners won lovely prizes in the free raffle of donated prizes. Christophe Lombardi defied the laws of physics with a magic show that kept us all guessing and wondering what happened to those extra cards and where all that coloured string came from!

As we waited for Her Majesty the Queen to appear, Dorothy Laity led us in a fast-paced game of “Bring me”. We then paused to listen to wise words from the Queen, before finishing off the afternoon with a rousing action-packed chorus of “The 12 Days of Christmas”, led by Veronica and Peter Brown.

We are so grateful to all those who contribute and help to make this a special day for those who would otherwise be on their own:

Mark Gribble - Gribble’s Butchers for the turkey and meats

Friary Mill Bakery for the bread rolls

Endsleigh Garden Centre for the beautiful hampers for the raffle

Bob Maitland for two handmade Christmas cakes

Ivor Jones & Company Limited

Father Christmas

Local Businesses - Co-operative Foods, Nearly Naked Veg Company, Caterfood, The Watermark, Tamar Fresh, Diamond Disposables, Bidfood, Turtley Corn Mill, Tidford Organic and MJ Baker

Gifts from students at Ivybridge Community College

Plus a big thank you to all the generous volunteers who assisted on the day and helped in organising the event including Ivybridge Caring, Ivybridge Ring and Ride, Ray and Jan Wilson, Louise Jones, Sue and Jack Aust, Mayor of Ivybridge (Ann Laity), Tony Goldsworthy (for the quiz), Christophe Lombardi (Entertainment) and Ivybridge Town Councillors and staff
