The Autumn Edition of the Nympton News is back from the printers, and have we got a bumper edition for you!
As you would expect, there are reflections on the life of Her Late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, including memories of her visit to plant a tree at Eggesford Forest in 1956. there are also two accounts of The Queue to see her lying-in-state.
Looking ahead to our Christmas edition, which raises money for the Devon Air Ambulance, there is a feature on one of the pilots, and a letter from a villager whose life was saved by the aircrew and paramedics when she had a heart attack.
There's a profile of our friendly local postie, and a special feature about a local car fanatic whose racing career was nearly cut short by a 170mph crash.
Our online page of extras will include videos of two of our features, with extra material not covered in the magazine articles.
Plus, the kids section, and all the regular updates.
Coming to a doorstep near you soon!

Welcome to the Community Website for Kingsnympton 
Whether you are a local or a visitor, this is the place to find information about the village and surroundings, and an insight into the community.

Maybe you're moving into the area and would like to introduce yourselves or find out about what's going on in the community. Maybe you need a specialist in a particular area of work. You can find this and much more in our pages and directory listings.


To help you to become more sustainable we're got a section on lowering your environmental impact - including recycling everything from bubble wrap to laptops and buying from local independent shops

If you are visiting the village we have extremely informative sections on the local historyplaces to eat and places to sleep! You can even take a tour of our virtual village to explore before you get here!

Many of the recommendations are based on personal preferences - so if there are eateries, days out or tradespeople you think we should be featuring, do let us know. The same goes for what's ons and important notices for the `Latest Information' box at the top of the page.

Much of the information here was written by John Barnes, who set up the original site. But there are always new aspects to village life that we should reflect, so if you feel there is anything missing just get in touch.
