The Salcombe History Society Annual General Meeting will be held on Wednesday 14th March at 7pm (for prompt 7.30pm start) at Salcombe Rugby Club. After the business part of the meeting there will be a talk by Bob Trowbridge entitled “Nostalgia”. There will also be the opportunity to view the ‘Salcombe in the 1960s’ video which was shown at the last meeting.
Over 100 people attended Salcombe History Society’s Christmas Meeting 2017. After chairman Ken Prowse welcomed the members and guests, he introduced a 30 minute film of Salcombe in the 1960s. The footage included a euchre match being played at The Shipwrights’ featuring George Clements, Sam Harvey, Eddie Burner, Graham Griffiths (Grif), Geoff Ware and Eunice Chapman and many other familiar faces. Following the film the raffle was drawn with many great prizes on offer including a bottle of Salcombe Gin, two crab suppers, several bottles of wines and spirits, chocolates and Christmas fare. An incredible £442 was raised and our thanks go to the attendees, raffle donors and participants.
