The Eden Cottages Trust is a charity which owns and runs a row of almshouses in Ivybridge, Devon, comprising two houses and four flats, gardens and grounds. The Trust was established in 1927 and requires that the residents and a majority of the trustees be members of the Church of England.

 There are currently six trustees who together bring experience of finance, investments, building maintenance, charity work and the law. One of them now wishes to retire so the Trust is looking to appoint another trustee.

 The role is a voluntary one so no remuneration is payable. Trustees meet formally not less than three times a year in Ivybridge with ad hoc meetings arranged as required.  The day to day business affairs of the trust are handled by the trust's Clerk and Visitor (a part-time employee) and its Honorary Treasurer (one of the trustees).

Following the closure of the Post Office services previously offered from South Brent Stores, Post Office services are now running successfully in South Brent Old School Community Centre as an outreach service offered by Monica Pound the postmistress from Strete and her husband Andrew . A good range of Post Office services is now offered on:

 -     Wednesdays from 9am-1pm

 -     Fridays from 9am-12noon

 -     Saturdays from 9am-12noon

  Huge thanks are owed to the Trustees of the Old School Community Centre and Centre Manager and Glyn Richards in particular for the work he has done in facilitating this.

  This arrangement can continue while longer term arrangements are explored. The best option remains for an existing South Brent retailer to offer to host the service and several local retailers have been approached. If you know of a retailer who might be interested in discussing hosting Post Office services in the village, they can be put in touch with the relevant Post Office manager via the Parish Clerk (This email address is being protected from spambots.
