Zeal Monachorum History Exhibition 2022 - Thursday 2 & Friday 3 June, 10.30am to 5.00pm

FREE ENTRY - drop by for 5 minutes, an hour or as long as you like. Will you find yourself, your relatives, your ancestors, your house, your favourite walk or just enjoy charming, quirky photos and snippets of history about the parish, such as the origin of the name?

Please send details together with any relevant documents or photographs of interest to the address below. She asks that you scan your photos and send with any written information via email to nymphayes (at) btconnect.com, or post to her at Nymphayes Farm, Zeal Monachorum, Crediton, Devon. EX17 6DT. She is also willing to collect, copy and return any photographs or documents. Please contact her on 82343 by 21 May.


Door-Step/Garden Gate/Yard Event - Thursday 2 June (or Friday 3 June if wet)

Give away / sell / raise funds for charity – anything and everything. Start now to put to one side the clutter you no longer want [one person’s junk is another person’s treasure], grow plants, make items for sale etc. Householders can decide for themselves whether to give away, sell, or raise money for a good cause. Opening times will be between 10am and 3pm according to the individual house-holder. Those taking part who would like to be shown on a location map to be posted around the village must contact Erica on 82606, email: reden (at) rocketmail.com at the latest by Sunday 29 May. People can still participate regardless of whether they are on the map. An extra attraction will be worth a visit on this day - take a rare opportunity to visit the Bramble Junction railway – see story on Page 6.
