Dr Todd Gray’s speech was most enjoyable with a light- hearted look at the history of North Devon. With an incredible researched knowledge he has written a large number of books on various facets of Devon history and a small bookstall of some of his books were on show in the foyer with titles including ... Tudor and Stuart Devon, Blackshirts in Devon, Victorian Wild Flowers of Devon and even a book titled “Curious Sexual Adventure of Rev J Prince” which he announced had sold to two lady members in the audience. District Governor Peter Bennett was also present and he made a surprise award to one unsuspecting member....PP Stu Robinson was presented with a Paul Harris Fellowship Award.
