Another Successful Christmas 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.
