OLD POSTCARD OF THE MONTH- October 2015
This postcard is my latest acquisition. It shows Wychanger Cottage probably in the 1920's. It looks as if the dry stone wall supporting the bank on the right had recently been built. The recent increase in overgrowing trees from the old garden on the right make this a very different scene now! The tall trees in the churchyard have all gone and a large alien eucalyptus has become established towards the right of the scene. All of these factors mean that from this viewpoint, it is now impossible to see the thatched cottage roof, let alone the Church beyond!

Mango - Tiverton's Famous Tesco Cat !
"Being open 24 hours a day requires extra sleep." -Mango, 28th August 2015.
If you are ever visiting the Tesco Superstore in Blundells Way, Tiverton, don't forget to look out for Mango, who can usually be seen cat-napping in a comfortable spot in the store's foyer. A stroke or gentle pat on the head seems to be tolerated. For more information, go to Mango's Facebook Page.
DEVON AIR AMBULANCE
You may not be aware that when an air ambulance is needed in this part of West Somerset, it is not the Dorset and Somerset service from Henstridge on the Dorset/Somerset border that attends, but the Devon Air Ambulance helicopter from Eaglescott Airfield near Great Torrington.
While in no way wishing to detract from the excellent service provided by the former, if you are interested in supporting the Devon Air Ambulance, click on "DEVON AIR AMBULANCE" for more information. Among their fund-raising activities, they hold a weekly lottery with good cash prizes.
