A variety of photographs and documents were on display for the many interested visitors.


SHS Annual General Meeting 2018

The 8th Annual General Meeting of Salcombe History Society took place on Wednesday 14th March 2018 at Salcombe Rugby Club. Around 40 members attended to hear a summary of the Society’s activities over the past year. They were then treated to a talk and slideshow by Bob Hesketh on the theme of ‘Nostalgia’. It proved to be an amusing evening with members sharing their anecdotes of life in the 1950s and 1960s.
