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.

Local History Group

February 2018

For the January meeting, David Tovey gave a very vivid insight into the life and times of many artists and authors during the war years. Indeed the paintings showed the most dreadful conditions suffered by all those at war both on land and at sea. Interesting to note the number of foreign artist/authors in England (Polperro and St Ives) who actually joined the forces and went to war.

For the February meeting on the 18th February, Alan Endacott, the Dartmoor Historian will be giving an illustrated lecture on “Sittaford Stone Circle its discovery and context”
