Enjoyable ways to support

This page showcases ways in which Friends are helping to make the Grand Western a great venue while raising money and awareness of its charms. There are now 40 collecting boxes throughout Mid Devon - if you see one, please tell the shopkeeper how you appreciate his/her help in spreading the word!  The following activities and events have supported our fund. If you'd like to join them, please let us know!



See the slide show for a small selection of photos from the Grand Western 200 weekend and other recent events...


It was great to meet up with a number of Friends at the Mid Devon Show on 22nd July.  Thank you for braving the mud and rain!



If you would like to publicise your own idea for supporting the cause, please get in touch and we'll add you to this page.
