Moving the spotlight on from last week’s focus on Churston village it falls naturally on the village of Galmpton nestling between its common and the river Dart. Galmpton retains a true community spirit with the Manor Inn being the centre of village life complimented by the village institute and barn hall. Everyday shopping is covered by Galleon Stores, Savills Butchers and the Village Salon! For those with children the village boasts both a primary and grammar school. Demand for homes in the village is always strong. Eric Lloyd & Co has recently completed sales on properties in Langdon Lane, Langdon Fields and Barnfield Close with sales recently being agreed on properties in Manor Bend, Manor Vale Road and Langdon Fields. Currently on the market in Galmpton with Eric Lloyd & Co are bungalows in Old Road and Langdon Fields, a three bedroom house in The Coombe as well as an outstanding period house standing in a large garden in Greenway Road. If you are looking to buy or sell in Galmpton contact Rachel Cowls or Tina Barber on 01803 844466. Following the many summer events in the village next on the calendar is the Barn Art Group’s 2016 Exhibition in the Barn Hall running daily from Saturday 20th August until Monday 29th August. This is always an outstanding exhibition showcasing the talents of many local artists. Following the art show is the Autumn Festival on Sunday 4th September with its many exhibitions, shows and competitions.
