Members of St Michael's Church and West Hill Village Hall are joining forces to promote the area to attract more local people to marry in the village.

The Reverend Mac Dick said: “We have a beautiful and intimate Devon village church and a splendid and well equipped village hall just around the corner. Marrying in church has a special significance unlike a licensed venue elsewhere and vows given and received within a holy space have a resonance that will stay with the couple forever.”

As part of the drive, a new website has launched informing couples about what is on offer. Ian Heard, chairman of trustees, said the hall has rooms and kitchen facilities for wedding parties of all sizes.

He said: “Our modern village hall offers a large hall for the reception complete with a stunning indoor marquee which provides a magical environment for that special occasion.”
