Chairman Mr Malcolm Norman Huxton Farm, Shaugh Prior, Nr Plymouth PL7 5EQ
Councillor Mrs Sue Burkill Mount 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 John Small 2 Oakfield, Lee Moor, Nr Plymouth PL7 5JH
Councillor Mrs Elaine Smerdon Spring Cottage, Shaugh Prior, Nr Plymouth PL7 5HD
Having spent much of my childhood in Shaugh it was a pleasure to return in 1984. I became involved in the Community through working at the local surgery and being Clerk to the Council with Mrs Stacey. Previously I taught ceramics in a large independent boarding school before working as a Medical Secretary in a hospice in Bath. When we arrived here Dr Kinchin needed a Dispenser so I re trained and stayed with him until his retirement. I am now working with the Devon Out of Hours Doctors on a part time basis which gives me time to work with Dartmoor Livestock Rescue, keep up with my garden and grandchildren. I am married with two boys and a girl and have five grandchildren.
Councillor Mr Keith Stone Hartstone 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.
Councillor Mr Colin Taffurelli 5 The Bungalows, Wotter, Plymouth PL7 5HW
Colin is 70 years of age and has been married to Jackie for 49 years. On leaving school he did an apprenticeship in Engineering and served in the Medical Corps during his National Service. On leaving the Army he worked on orthopaedic appliances and eventually owned his own manufacturing company. He gained his ONC, became State Registered and a Fellow of The Institute of Surgical Technicians. He visited many clinics and hospitals attending to orthopaedic problems with children and adults. Having visited Jackie's family in Devon for many years, they decided to come back to her roots. They now live in Wotter and take a great interest in Community affairs whilst still making time for his golf.
Councillor Mr Nick Wassell Whittaborough 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.
Parish Clerk Mr Scott Smy 57 Priory Close, Ivybridge PL21 9JG
Having been in the job for almost a year now I thought I had better put some words in here to let you all know about me! If I haven't met you already then just to let you know I'm Scott the new Clerk to the Parish Council. I live in Ivybridge with my partner and 6 year old son. I am a dedicated (sometime too dedicated I'm told) sea fisherman and also enjoy walking in the countryside with my rather crazy 2 year old black lab called Ozzie. If you have any issues in the Parish that you want to raise then please don't hesitate to contact me. Regards, Scott.
