Welcome to the Belstone Village Website
This project is provided and maintained by Belstone Village Hall and is intended to provide a hub for all things Belstone.
In September 2016 the original website was replaced with this, our new site, with the assistance of moorSITES.com.
The editors, Edwina & Robin Hill, can be contacted via our contact form, and would be pleased to receive suggestions and comments relating to the site. If you wish to be able to contribute event details, write blog posts for a particular group or area of interest, or add other content to the site, please ask to receive a registration link.
The Original Site
In 2006, Belstone became involved in a “Green Village” initiative, in partnership with WestDen and the Centre for Sustainable Futures at Plymouth University. It was part of a project, initiated by WestDen, to look into the way people live and how their lives affect the environment around them, and a steering group was set up, comprising members of the village community and representatives from Westden and Plymouth University. One of the outcomes of the project was the setting up and funding of this website and of the village newsletter – both of which are ways of communicating information and support both within Belstone and the wider community.
Our thanks go to Geoff Hodgkinson for setting up the original website for us and for supporting us in rewriting the site following the trashing by hackers, just before Christmas 2010. Without his patience and constant support, there would be no website.
