Wildlife talk success
THE PUBLIC turned out in force at Old Forde House, Newton Abbot for an illustrated talk by award-winning wildlife film-maker, broadcaster and writer Andrew Cooper, entitled Dartmoor: A Celebration of its People, Places and Wildlife.Based on his book of the same name, written to celebrate 60 years of the National Park, it was a highly evocative account of the unique landscape of Dartmoor, how it was formed and the flora and fauna it supports. With an opportunity to talk to Andrew over wine and snacks afterwards, the sell-out event proved a great success.Arranged by Newton Abbot Town and GWR Museum volunteer Katy Bennie, proceeds from the evening went to support the museum's oral archive project, which has been set up to collect the memories of the Newton Abbot community. When completed, the archive will be available to the public via the museum's website, and it is hoped that it will be used as a historical resource by local schools.The museum is closed for the winter, but staff and volunteers are busy creating the new exhibition for 2013. Called Inside Out, it will be a celebration of the architects and architecture of the town, and will be open to the public on March 6.
