Chairman Mr Nick WassellWhittaborough Farm, Shaugh Prior, Plymouth PL7 5ES
I Have lived at Whittaborough Farm for 6 years with my wife Debbie who grew up in the village. I am 47 years old and came to Shaugh from West Wales via 22 year career as an Engineer in Royal Navy and a few years skippering a fishing trawler out of Plymouth. I now balance running our small holding with game keeping on the Plym Valley shoot and the family commitment to foster caring.
Councillor Mrs Sue BurkillMount Clogg, Shaugh Prior, Plymouth PL7 5HA
I have lived in Shaugh Prior since 1980 when my husband and I took over an old farm house from Maristow. We have spent a lot of time renovating the house which was nearly derelict. Many older parishioners remember it as the house that the Edwards family lived in and the place where the village milk supply came from. We have raised two sons in the time we have lived in Shaugh who were christened in the church, attended the village school and worked in the pub! I have been very interested in the history of the parish and have written a short history of the landscape which can be seen on the website. I have also recorded the stories of several parishioners who described their lives in Shaugh parish in the early part of the last century. We have helped out with the Shaugh Hall Committee and in the last five years we have held duck races to raise money for the hall and the church.
I work at the University of Exeter and have responsibility for providing support in learning how to teach and use new technologies to all the staff who lecture there. On the Parish Council I am usually asked to review the planning documents which we are sent from Devon, South Hams and Dartmoor National Park. If anyone has an interest in these please get in touch.

Councillor Mr Keith StoneHartstone Farm, Shaugh Prior, Nr Plymouth
In 1962 my parents moved from Yeo Farm near Meavy to Nethershaugh Farm. I attended Meavy Primary and then went on to Shebear College. After college I came back to work the family farm with my father(I don't think that this is what they intended!) before taking over Hartstone and Faunstone farms in 1970. I THINK NOW THAT I QUALIFY AS BEING A LOCAL! Having reached an age where I should have more spare time I thought it was time to try to give back something to the Community that has given so much to me. So here I am, here to help you if I can.
