Awash with History at Kingsbridge Show

In contrast to the fine weather enjoyed during the South Hams Vintage Steam Rally, Kingsbridge Show, held on 3rd September, suffered from strong winds and heavy rain. Richard Weymouth had kindly offered to transport Chairman Ken Prowse and all his gear to the show and help set up and man the stall. The day started off reasonably well but they were soon practically swimming! The benefit of this was that the marquees soon filled up with people taking shelter and browsing the stalls.

The new 2017 Salcombe History Society Calendar was on sale for the first time and 10 copies were sold during the day. Ken would like to extend a big thank you to Richard as he believes they would still be there now had it not been for Richard’s 4×4!
