PUBLISHED: 16:30 29 July 2015
Budleigh’s Fairlynch Museum has shown visitors young and old the fun side of history at a smugglers and pirates-themed family fun day.
Attractions at the event included games, stalls, ‘Smugglers in the Stocks’, and a costume competition judged by the Mayor of Budleigh Salterton, Courtney Richards, as well as cream teas.
Organiser Christine Bailey said: “It was great to have parents and children from the local schools and pre-school groups join us for the fun day. The museum is a resource for all the families in this area and we want them to recognise us as a source of entertainment as well as information.”
Museum chairman Trevor Waddington said he would like to congratulate the volunteers for having worked so hard to make the event a success.
