Free Tree Giveaway -
February 5th 2022 - please see poster below & for full details, please click on the 'Latest News' BANNER BELOW.
In partnership with Devon Wildlife Trust (DWT), we are giving away free trees for you to plant in your gardens. This is part of DWT's 'Saving Devon's Treescapes' project. Devon's treescapes' are under threat from 'ash dieback', which is predicted to kill at least 90% of Devon's ash trees in the coming years.
But... we can all help, by planting a tree - every extra tree planted will also take a bit more carbon out of the atmosphere and therefore contribute to tackling the climate emergency that we are facing.

Kingsteignton - known as a Village within a Town
Pictured above: The Fountain, Oakford, Kingsteignton, TQ12 3EG
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!
