All Saints Church has recently hosted two successful events. On 1st November about 80 people enjoyed Ian Blackwell's talk "East Budleigh in The Great War - those who served", and raised over £300 for the Friends of All Saints Church.
On Saturday 3rd November, the finale to the Sir Walter Raleigh 400 year commemorations came in the shape of "Sharp Medicine", a wonderful concert of the poetry of Sir Walter set to music. The audience were entertained by the two talented musicians from Leeds, Peter Spafford on keyboards and David Bowie Junior on double bass, following which they gave us an opportunity for an informal discussion on Sir Walter and his life.
Commemorating Sir Walter Raleigh - Representatives from HMS Raleigh attend church service and a Potato and Pirate Party in East Budleigh is a great success
A special church service at All Saints Church was attended by representatives from HMS Raleigh in memory of Sir Walter Raleigh who was executed 400 years ago.
Then about 60 people of all ages enjoyed Potato and Pirate Party on Sunday 28th October, raising funds for All Saints Church.
See some photos of both events here.
