The day started with a sponsor event where our supporters and sponsors visited to firstly see the official unveiling of our Hand painted 8' x 4' painted by our President Roger Davies. The sponsors were then shown the bonfire close up and the plans that we are working to whilst having a cup of tee and refreshments.

  • On Mayfair day 3 brave women from the Black Horse Inn had their heads shaved for 2 worthy charities. They aimed to raise £5,000 to be shared equally between the Great Torrington Cavaliers and Macmillan Cancer Support.

    Before our monthly meeting on Thursday 7th June, Bev, Jane and Payton presented us with a cheque for £5307 being half of the £10,614 raised. What an amazing result and Thank you so much for the donation, we are all very proud of you.

    Openreach visited site this week and drilled the 3 holes that will take the 80ft masts of the Mayflower. Thank you to the operators, Danny Stewart and Rob Puig and their manager Dave Brown for arranging this.

    It was necessary to drill these rather than use a digger because the ground around them will be more solid to support the masts. we can now begin to work on the structure of the ship.

The 2020 event will be the most spectacular event that they have embarked on to commemorate both dates in history.
