Community Hub April 2019
It was agreed at the Hub meeting in March to look into the possibility of running a Food Hygiene course at the Hub, if anyone is serving food at the Hub a certificate is required by at least one person present. A course has been arranged for the end of April.
The April monthly coffee morning on the 27th is to raise funds to cover some of the cost involved in the Hygiene course. A slide show will be in the background showing some of the gardens that the Garden Club have visited over the last few years. A bric a brack, plants and cake stall would appreciate any offerings! Please come along and have a coffee/tea and chat.
May 25th Coffee Morning is to be hosted by the Hub in aid of the Leukaemia Fund. In addition to tea/coffee there will be a craft fair and lunches will be served from 12 noon. Hopefully you can join us for coffee a look around the craft fair and stay for a bacon roll or soup. Please come if you can and support this event.

Small team, big heart: Broadwoodwidger WI at 70
A seventieth birthday is a milestone event worthy of celebration. Broadwoodwidger WI began in 1948, its first meeting held in the village's old school room and by the time you read this will have marked its three score years and ten with a 1948 style party. The survival of a tiny WI in a small village is certainly worth celebrating and we are proud of our long link with the local community and our county federation.Read the full story here...
The Hub was full to capacity for the February meeting to listen to Alan Endacott relate his family history life on Dartmoor and his passion, from a very early age, for the history of the Dartmoor area. Sittaford (a stone circle) was found in 2007 and has taken a number of years to fully uncover. Alan is hoping to complete a Ph D over the next few years and will hopefully be able to answer some of the questions posed by the finding of this amazing stone circle.
The March meeting on the 18th is at the Community Hub and the speaker will be the North Devon author Liz Shakespeare who will talk on one of her books “The Postman Poet: A True Story” 7pm start followed by tea/coffee and biscuits £2 members, £4 none-members.Find out more about Broadwoodwidger Local History Group...
