I have lived in Christow since June 2000 and have been involved with the History Society from the beginning. Some years ago I did some research into the effects of extreme weather in the Teign Valley and, more recently, explored the stories of the valley men who did not return from World War I. Currently I take charge of the refreshments at the bi-monthly talks.
