50th Anniversary Golden Showcase

Flavel Centre, Dartmouth

From : Sarah at the AONB

We were delighted to host a showcase event at the Flavel Centre in Dartmouth on 18 March 2011. Many of the community groups we've worked with joined in, and others sent displays.

It was a chance to show off what we've achieved to our funders at the Heritage Lottery Fund. We'd like to thank the many people who helped to make the evening a success.

Here's the Programme to give you a taste, or to remind you if you were there.

50th Anniversary Golden Showcase

This stands out among 3000 projects HLF are funding at the moment... It’s the sheer range of projects and people from different backgrounds and generations. The targets were pretty adventurous at the start for the amount of money, but to go well beyond that we really do take our hats off to the South Devon AONB
