A brief update on the progress of the Chagford Heritage Centre. As many of you know there are currently major building works going on at the Jubilee Hall, which will result in an extension to include a new space for the library. Once moved, a large part of the former library is earmarked for the new heritage centre and archive. Currently members of the CLHS committee are working on an application for a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund to thoroughly remodel the interior, then equip and furnish the space. If all goes well, Chagford will at last have its extensive archive stored securely, thoroughly catalogued and fully accessible to the public.Finally, the Society is soon to fully embrace the 21st century when it opens its first Facebook account. If you’re a social media person then look out for us from the end of October onwards.
