We’ve recently been busy planting a Rowan Tree in the grounds of the Finch Foundry
From left to right Yvonne Reason, Sue Pritchard, Jenny Bowkley, Maisie Mathews, Sue Draper, Jenny Brewer, Angela Hammond, Pauline Baker, Liz Allen & Bennie the Dog.
So in keeping with that activity we found a couple of photos in our archive from 1953 to commemorate the Coronation. Can anyone spot any faces?
We have organised a couple of trips. One in August to the Plymouth Gin Distillery for a guided tour and hopefully some tasting! Followed by a blue coat tour of the Barbican and supper at the Riverside Inn in Bovey Tracey. In September a group of members will be visiting the Met Office in Exeter. We have had a varied set of speakers so far in 2013 and all have been good.
This year the charities we are supporting is Dartmoor Rescue. We always support a local charity which the members vote for out of a shortlist of three.
Guests are always welcome to our meetings for a small charge of £3. Likewise new members will always have a friendly reception.
