Welcome to Kingsteignton!

Remembering our fallen who gave their lives serving their country.

It is has been with great sadness that the normal Remembrance Parade has not been able to take place this year, however, poppy wreaths were laid at the War Memorial in Kingsteignton on Sunday 8th November, 2020 by Kingsteignton Town Council Mayor, Cllr Dave Rollason and The Royal British Legion, in respect of our fallen comrades. We hope that our residents were also able to join the national 2 minute silence.

The Royal British Legion would like to thank everybody who has supported them in the past years in various ways and hope that next year they will be able to return to normal arrangements to mark this significant date. In the meantime, may we ask you to please continue to support the 'Poppy Appeal'.

We know that many of our residents either walked or drove past the Fountain recently and were able to admire the incredible display of knitted, crocheted and handcrafted poppies, made by the ladies of Kingsteignton Post Meridian W. I., the Church's Mothers Union and some of their friends.  There were over 2000 poppies made to mark our fallen comrades and horses during past war times.  The Kingsteignton Post Meridian W.I. decided to undertake this project to coincide with marking their 50th Anniversary, 1970 - 2020 as well as the 75th Anniversary of Victory in Europe marking the end of WWII. The ladies have spent many, many hours of hard work knitting, crocheting and assembling these beautiful poppies and horses display and as a Council, we cannot thank you enough!

Kingsteignton - known as a Village within a Town

Just a few years ago Kingsteignton was the largest village in England.  However, as the population increased we achieved the status of becoming a 'Town', so from 1st January 2009, we changed from a Parish Council to a Town Council. Our first Mayor, Councillor Mike Walters was a stalwart for the Town, District and County Councils and served many years. Many locals who have lived here all of their lives, still refer to it as a Village!

Our population has since continued to grow and is currently at approximately 12,500 residents with over 5,000 homes.  We are a vibrant Town, with retail parks, a cafe, a coffee shop, pubs, restaurants, hotels, sports facilities, 3 high achieving primary schools and Teign School a high achieving secondary school, industrial estates and over 80 x businesses' in total.  Situated at the head of the River Teign Estuary our East Ward adjoins the Hackney Marshes Nature Reserve and to the West fringing on the banks of the River Teign adjoining Teigngrace and the Hamlet of Preston.

A resident or a visitor to our Town, we hope that you enjoy your time here!
