Following the unsuccessful sale of Manning’s Pit at auction on Wednesday 23rd September we have opened a dialogue with the seller to see if we can agree terms and it is more important than ever that people donate to help us reach a figure that will get the deal over the line.’’
After starting a long post about this event, the draft failed to save properly, so we are going to do our best to reconstitute it. In June we marked the summer solstice with a Dawn to Dusk event, starting at 5am and finishing at 9.40pm. On Sunday the 20th September, we did another event, like a relay again, to mark the upcoming autumn equinox. This time we only had to start at 7am, and finish at 7pm.
What a time to lose a draft Blog Post, with lots of photos of people enjoying themselves in Manning’s Pit on Sunday. The new changes on this platform may be good, but first you have to figure how to use them!
Our total tonight is £100,757, quite an amazing achievement from such a small and not especially wealthy community, at such a time. A year ago, it would have seemed that raising such an amount would be easy, but how times have changed, and how difficult fund raising is in the time of the pandemic!
There are so many stories we can tell, from so many people, and many we have covered in our News page or over the years of this campaign.
Victor is a dog who was found wandering the streets of Bucharest, and we will be telling his story in more detail later, but for now it is enough to say that he was rescued by a Charity, and ended up here in North Devon, where he is enjoying a new and happy life, with daily walks in Manning’s Pit.
