We'll be selling our hard enamel badges (in Great Western Railway colours) £10 for 1. £15 for 2. £20 for 4.
We will have; a display of some of the old implements which have been used on the land and also a photograph (the only one known to exist) of, and the story of, our inimitable Captain George Peacock, who designed The Swan of the Exe.

Starcross History is going to replicate this ' wackin' gurt bird ' for this year's Trail Recycled Art in the Landscape project in Teignmouth.
Our artwork will be based on an old dinghy, which will have a swan at the prow - just like the original Swan of the Exe, which was launched in 1860. Well, we hope it will look just like a swan... and not a dead seagull... All help and suggestions are welcome.
100s of feathers for this bird will have to be made, from plastic milk bottles, so please bring your empty plastic milk bottles. We'll be asking everyone's help to cut out some more feathers.
Perhaps you might like to put your name on the feathers you make? So that the names won't detract from the overall effect of white plumage, we'll ask you to please use a white marker-pen.
