Lock Down News

by Yvonne Hellin-Hobbs | News

So, how is the Lock Down affecting you? We at BH have unfortunately had to postpone our VE Day programme for the time being, but hopefully, later in the summer, we can resurrect some of the events and party like it’s 1945!

Meanwhile we have started a new page on the site , a COVID 19 page designed to document the day to day movements of people in this wonderful village. Any ideas you have to help people pass the time, and any comments you have on how things are progressing, please check in each day to see the latest official news, and to leave comments yourself. This is our way of chronicling history as it happens in Bishopsteignton.

We are also ramping up the articles going online, so keep your eyes peeled for lots of interesting historical stories to keep you entertained. We are still producing our series of WWII related stories in line with our programme for this year. Don’t forget, if you have an idea for an article or any information you would like to impart, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. We may not be able to meet with you face to face, but we still have access to the archive, and we can communicate electronically and help you tell your story.

Stay safe and keep in touch!
