Chairman Ken Prowse and all the committee members would like to wish members of Salcombe History Society a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
The 2019 Christmas meeting of Salcombe History Society was another busy event with many members enjoying a very interesting talk given by Laurence Axworthy on the bombing of Plymouth during the Second World War. After the talk the raffle was drawn with many lovely prizes won thanks to the generosity of local businesses and individuals. (Photos courtesy of Geoff Foale.)
