Edward Hannaford’s Reunion Lunch

Carrying on the tradition in memory of Edward Hannaford, Virginia Lown organised the annual Salcombe School reunion lunch at Salcombe Yacht Club on 31st May 2018. Around 30 people attended the two course buffet style lunch. It was a wonderful spread, much enjoyed by Salcombe History Society Chairman Ken Prowse and the other participants as they reminisced with a yarn or two about their shared experiences of growing up in Salcombe.

Please note: this is an annual event which takes place on the last Thursday in May. It would be lovely to see a few more faces next year. Please contact Salcombe History Society in you require further information.
