What's ON in and around our village

Twinnathon with Thurlestone report as below from Sue
When Gladys Met Tom in Thurlestone

                                              Razor-sharp singers entertained the folk from Marden last weekend.

Thurlestone phone box team put on an absolutely splendid Twinnathon for the Marden motley crew who accompanied Gladys down there at the weekend. We were treated to a Heritage walk followed by the Twinnathon ceremony including -
Singing of the Twinnathon anthem on the Church steps by the wonderful men's choir 'Razor Sharp'
Cider and hedgerow fizzes
A mystery tour in a beautiful vintage bus driven by dj Shep of BBC radio Devon
All followed by a Devon cream tea, drinks overlooking the sea and a delicious bbq supper. To cap it all the Thurlestone matchmakers helped Gladys find love in the phone box by introducing her to handsome Tom!

Thank you! Lalu, Sue and Gladys
