Welcome to our new Hele's Angels website.
Hele's Angels is a neighbourhood management scheme covering Hele and Lower Barton.
Hele's Angels acts as an 'umbrella organisation' that brings together the community, the Hele's Angels community partnership, and other partners so life can be improved for ALL Hele and Lower Barton residents.

The Windmill was first mentioned in a deed of 13 March 1693 when Lord Londonderry granted to James Waters, a merchant tailor from London, a lease for 21 years on condition that he erected
"a sufficient and commodious windmill with two mill stones on it, one to grind wheat and the other barley, on Yaddon Hill Down or Common, at any place where it is fit and convenient situate... in the parish of Tormohun, near the village called Upton."
When the lease expired in 1694 it was leased to a Chagford miller, John Knott, for 7 years.
The Mill was still standing in apparently working order in 1793 as it can be seen in a painting by the prolific Devon artist Reverend Swete.
However, by the 1870s it was derelict. The ruins of the Mill are in the garden of a house in Audley Avenue.
But i have a few issues i would like answering.
1) why is it that whenever there is a tidy up that you only mention either lichfield Avenue or Pendennis Roads when clearly there are other roads in Hele,Mabee if you did the occupants of the other roads may volunteer and help out with these projects.
and secondly Why is is you cannot have a Hele Resident to Run Heles Angels it is well know that
Chris Forster isnt a Hele Villager nor is he from Torquay.
Its all well and good he being the manager (doing a great job) but this is a community project so why cant we have a villager who knows hele and whats its really about to manage the Heles Angels.
some people i have spoken to so far have said to me that he doesn't care about the problems in hele
because he doesnt live here and doesnt havr to put up with it all at night times because he is at home in the nice quiet village that he lives in.
come on heles angels get a grip and listen to the real people of Hele .
It was by far the busiest event in the Bay with about 1000 people enjoying themselves (including me).
I'm so proud of what you achieved with just 3 weeks notice of the road closure! Amazing!
You're not just Hele's Angels your Hele's stars!
This event is being organised by Torbay LINk, working to improve your local health and social care services. Together we can help influence changes in health and social care provision in the Bay.
Torbay's Carers provide unpaid support to family or friends who could not manage without their help. This could be caring for a relative, partner or friend who is ill, frail, disabled or has mental health or substance misuse problems.
Anyone can become a Carer. Carers come from all walks of life, and can be of any age. Many feel they are doing what anyone else would in the same situation - looking after their mother, son, or best friend and just getting on with it.
As part of National Carers Week , and to celebrate the work of the Bay's Carers, Torbay's Local Involvement Network are inviting local Carers to join them for a free cream tea.
Venue: The Livermead Cliff Hotel, Torbay Road , Torquay.
Time: Sunday June 24th 2pm – 3.30pm
This is a free cream tea for |Carers. 'Cared for' are very welcome, but will be charged £2.00. Please contact the Torbay LINk office on (01803) 295277
And congratulations on cleaning up Riviera Video and opening the Community Shop. I hope it receives the support it deserves.
Keep up the good work!
