Christmas Meeting 2018

The adverse weather conditions unfortunately meant that several members were not able to attend the final Salcombe History Society meeting of 2018 but those who did brave the elements were treated to a fascinating and entertaining talk and slideshow by Billy ‘Scratch’ Hitchen who was promoting his autobiography, ‘”Scratch” A Salcombe Boy’. He recounted his childhood spent in Salcombe and then some of his maritime escapades. Following a break for refreshments, the eagerly anticipated raffle was drawn and the Society’s thanks go to the many businesses and individuals who generously contributed prizes. The Society’s next meeting will be the AGM in March 2019.
