Cllr Nirosha Gunatillake
The outstanding community cohesion in the parish of Holbeton provides lifeblood to this area, with its strong agricultural foundations and natural environs of coast and woodlands.
Since moving to Battisborough Cross in 2015, I have been the Chair of the Holbeton School Association (H.S.A) and have been involved in various fundraising community events.
I have a strong interest in high quality education, and view the School as an integral hub of village life and will continue to promote and support the school as a Parish Councillor.
The climate change emergency presents its own challenges here in the South Hams.
I believe it is imperative we tackle climate change now by adopting new ways of living - by reducing our reliance on fossil fuels and investing in sustainable products and businesses.
