The weekend will include a memorial service for Paul “Mugsy” Thornhill, who sadly passed away earlier this year. The service will be at 2.30pm on the Sunday in East Buckland Church. All welcome.  If anyone cannot be there but would like to send a donation, Ann’s request is that there be a retiring collection for the East Buckland Window fund. This idea was started by Alan and Kathy Kettle and is being seen as a link between WBS and EB Church to mark all the years that it has been used as, virtually, the School Chapel. To donate, please send a cheque made payable to OWBA, and write “East Buckland Window collection” on the reverse of the cheque, and post to Kirsti Ryall (OWBA), c/o 1 Sidmouth Lodge, Bicton, East Budleigh, Devon EX9 7BH Also on the Sunday morning is the OWBA AGM (11am at School). Please come to hear about all that we have been doing this past year and contribute ideas for the future! Minutes from last year’s meeting are available on the “about us” page, and the agenda for this year’s meeting is available here.
