"A Village Within A Town"

 

        MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL 

 

Our thanks go to everybody that attended our first ever outdoor Carol Service held at The Fountain on Friday 12th December.  Santa arrived with his elves to welcome children of the town whilst also collecting on behalf of the Kingsteignton Swimming Pool Association, prior to the Carol Service commencing @ 6:30 pm.

Councillor Rob Harris welcomed everybody who gathered by the beautiful Christmas tree and the service got underway with a few words from Reverend David Goddard of Kingsteignton Community Baptist Church & music was provided by Ian Avery and the community sang carols alongside the choir.  It was a cold, but lovely evening and after the service, refreshments were served at the URC Hall in Church Street. 

Cllr Rob Harris (above) welcomed the community to The Fountain Carol Service.

Kingsteignton is a town and civil parish in South Devon, England. It lies at the head of the Teign Estuary to the west of Teignmouth in the Teignbridge district. It is bypassed by the A380 road between Exeter and Torbay and is also on the A381 to Teignmouth, the A383 to Newton Abbot and the B3193 towards Chudleigh.

Kingsteignton was, until recently, purported to be the largest village in England, with a population of over 11,000. The threat of being incorporated into the nearby town of Newton Abbot prompted the parish council to change the village's status to a town itself: the change took effect from 1 January 2009. However, with a friendly community feel, it can truly be described as "The Village Within A Town".
