Devil's tor

Retiring or at least slowing down!

One of the advantages of not doing so many hours on the farm has enabled us to help with the fund raising for the new Widecombe Community Hall. We have been able to offer our time at events such as the Field Marshall tractor and trailer rides, the handler to move equipment around and our leat to have a duck race down. Gail’s latest fund raiser is a sponsored tor climb. She has taken on the All the Tors challenge which entails climbing 119 tors with a “name” space “tor” marked on the OL28 map. To date she has raised nearly £5 a tor (just under £600) and has climbed 101 tors – only 18 to go! Roll on the day we manage to build a modern, warm, multi-functional hall for all the folk of Widecombe whatever their age or mobility. If anyone feels inclined to sponsor Gail please go to marking the payment “119 Gail”. Thank you.
