    Wow that went quick! Doesn’t seem like only 12 months ago I was elected chair.

    Mayfair & Carnival 2017 was extremely successful;

     The Dancers done us and the town proud yet again!

     The afternoon entertainment was a great success with 2 youngsters, the winners, proving that never mind how much alcohol you consume you don’t get cleverer or faster. It was great fun!!

    The look on their faces when they won was something to behold, future cavaliers/supporters!

     We came first in our Carnival category!  And no one seemed to notice the blue and yellow mix up with the Swedish flag or the magnificent presence of the King and Queen of Sweden.

    The look on Willie’s and Margret’s faces sitting on the throne of Sweden was only surpassed when we presented then with the prize money! 

    Family Fun Day 2017; another successful event, 

    Was well attended with a lot of new faces who have moved in to the town  in recent years, we received a lot of compliments that it was a free event and the diversity of the entertainment provided.

     November Bonfire 2017;

     A superb event which saw a record attendance, a record revenue and a record time to reinstate the turf (just goes to show how much rain we have had since November).

     Christmas Give Away and New Years Eve:

     What a great few days; lots of fun, lots of laughs and lots of appreciation for what we do for the town. Many thanks to Damo for all his hard work, we will be hard pushed to replace him, if this is his last.

    New Years Eve was, apparently, well appreciated by those who attended and we may well need to look at he timings for next year event. A good time was had by all. 

    1646 March 2018;

     We kept the tradition going with another well attended event and there are rumours of a bigger push next year

     2020 Bonfire;

     Is our next big burn and lots of work is already underway by the officers and project managers my thanks to all involved. 

    The oil that makes things happen; 

    Bunting and Fuzz for Mayfair, Christmas tree and lights, Marquee erection, support of other events, willingness to engage with other events projects in the town we just do this, carried out with enthusiasm. 

    I would like to thank the officers for their help and support through out my first year; I couldn’t have survived with out it. 

    Most of all my thanks goes to all the members for their support, commitment and enthusiasm which makes being part of the Great Torrington Cavaliers such fun and a great honour.
