Feniton History Group 46th Meeting

Wonderful to see so many. It was good to natter and ponder over the maps the Group have in it's collection.

Work is progressing on the WW1 men.

Our next meeting. This will be in the Nog Inn on Thurs. 3rd April

"Oreo" is a young puppy in Pam's care for the "Hearing Dogs for the Deaf organisation and joins us for her socialisation training!

A note from Jenny:

The Battlefields’ Trust are organising a small event for anyone who would like to be introduced to the Battle of Fenny Bridges, Feniton Honiton . EX14 3BJ

On Saturday 12th April we are meeting at the Greyhound at 11 am and then walking to Bloody Meadow and then on to the church. After people have visited the church, they will be returning to the Greyhound for lunch and to look at display boards

We are charging £3 a head (plus lunch) and the money will go towards an information board which will cost us £1500. We have been debating where to place it. I would like the church to benefit from it, but Malcolm is keen to have it placed in the Greyhound. They are keen too as it will provide a centre of interest at the pub.

I am also planning to write to the council eventually and see if we can twist their arm and get them to provide a new Fenny Bridges sign over the bridge with the battle field symbol. Before that we are planning to get English Heritage to officially recognise the importance of the Battle field.
