The Bat Night takes place every year since 1997 in more than 30 countries on the last full weekend of August. Nature conservation agencies from across Europe pass on information to the public about the way bats live and their needs with presentations, exhibitions and bat walks, often offering the opportunity to listen to bat sounds with the support of ultrasound technology.
A great event with challenging courses, the 100 mile cycle visiting both Exmoor and Dartmoor travels through some of the most scenic countryside in the British isles with great climbs and long sweeping descents. The 100 kilometre course offers the same challenges but in a smaller package, ideal for beginners and seasoned riders with support throughout. A really great day out!
Picnics bring to mind romantic, basket-filled-with-treats lunch for two by a stream or a lunch in a park hastily packed to get the children out for a couple of hours, but picnics can be just as fun inside! With our ever unpredictable weather, indoor or outdoor picnics are the order of the day, this week.
Creative people from North Devon are being invited to submit designs to help make a community art installation in the shape of a shed to help raise money for charity. Trelawney Garden Leisure @ Ashford is asking customers to create eight inch by eight inch squares for an art piece that will be displayed during their Shed Week in July.
An exciting residency will begin at St Anne’s on 10th February for 3 weeks.

“People are discovering St Anne’s in Barnstaple, we have lots of different events programmed and they are proving popular" Calling all volunteers who can help!!
A Gothic building in miniature and now a tiny arts centre in the heart of Barnstaple. St Anne’s is one of Barnstaple's oldest and most important buildings, a rare survivor of Chantry foundation, rarer still for being a stand-alone chantry chapel in a church yard.
The historic Gothic building in the heart of Barnstaple is now a vibrant new oasis for all arts, crafters and community groups to make home and have enjoyable times together.
