Village Voice by Rosie Warrillow, 12th May

There is an exciting new project happening along the coast path at Bolberry this wekend! Teams of volunteers have been exploring an Archaeological site and they are having a ‘drop in’ session on Saturday May 14th for a couple of hours starting at 1pm., the aim is to discover ‘lithic scatter’ in an exercise to discover how the early people worked the flint in the area to create tools etc. Visitors will have the oppurtuity to talk to experts and work in three exploratory pits in the area. How facinating is that, stepping back into time, literally! The contact  information is southdevonanob.org.uk/projects/coastalheritage.for more information. The event is being organised by South Devon Coastal Heritage project supported by Historic England, Natural England,The South West Coast Path and is run in partnership with the National Trust. May is also National Walking Month and there are forty circular walks detailed on the ANOB website too, keep walking and taking in the breathtaking views we are all so lucky to enjoy.                                                                                                      

Its been Modbury Fair Week this past week and lots of events were organised to celebrate the town, including a concert by The Modbury Gospel Singers! Why do we mention it? Well one or two A.G locals have been involved with the singers for a number of years now and its nice to be neighbourly! The singers performed some of their favourite songs including Somandel, a Zulu spiritual, I am a River, Cold Play hit Wonder, and also sang with the Dust Devils band in a joint set. The audience was a sellout and the performers were loudly applauded for their efforts! The Gospel Singers will be singing at St Andrews Church at the end of this month during the fundraising concert for the A.G.V.S.association, whats the itinery I have been asked this week, well come along and find out! The concert starts at 7.pm on Saturday May 28th in the church. There will be items from the village chioir and the church choir too, and the Queens Jubilee Book will be on display asa well, it features beautifully worked pages from local artists featuring the well known buildings in the village and one page features our pet dogs too! Well done and thank you to our talented friends for their endeavours!
