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.

I have lived in Shaugh Prior since 1980. My children were born here, went to the local school and worked in the local pub! I am now retired having worked at Marjons and at the Plymouth and Exeter Universities. For the Council I take a particular interest in planning. As the only Councillor living in Shaugh Prior village I am often approached about village issues. Please contact me if I can help you.

I have lived in Shaugh Prior for the last 6 years with my husband and daughter, small flock of sheep and poultry. My daughter attended shaugh Prior primary school before moving up to Ivybridge Community college. I am also a member of Dartmoor Speedwatch Forum. Originally from the Isle of Wight, I have always been a country lass and coming from one close Community to another is like home from home and I enjoy helping people out, so if I can be of any help to you, please let me know.

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.
