A trio of woollen wonders joined the traditional opening of Barnstaple Fair on Wednesday (September 18). 
We recently worked with Amanda McCormack from North Devon Moving Image CIC, who has been tasked with creating social history films about people in Barnstaple. It is a project set up by The Museum of Barnstaple and North Devon who will be showing the films in their new social history gallery when they re-open next month. This film is all about our Beadle George and his love of Barnstaple Fair. We hope you will agree that it captures George's passion for Barnstaple Fair beautifully and shows why the Barnstaple Fair is such a special and important part of our towns history. 
FREMINGTON PARISH COUNCIL with support from Devon County Councillor F Biederman and North Devon Councillors Jayne Mackie, Joy Cann, Helen Walker and Will Topps has taken an innovative step to fund a 46 week programme to help improve mental health within the Parish. The programme will be run by Clarity, a Barnstaple based mental health charity which offers a range of counselling and group therapy to people experiencing mental health or emotional issues.
