THE skills and the history of Braunton will be revealed with the launch of a new three-day exhibition entitled Church and Community.

The event runs from Wednesday of next week (September 16) until Friday and will be centred around St Brannock's Church and nearby St Brannock's Rooms, with displays and demonstrations of present day crafts plus a wealth of information on the village of bygone days.

Across the three days there will be plenty to see. In the church there will be a display of paintings by local artists, with some works for sale.

Braunton of yesteryear will be featured in a display of old postcards of the village, dating from the beginning of the last century.

Both the church and St Brannock's Rooms will be open from 10.30am-4.30pm each day. Guides will be on hand at the church to answer questions and talk of the history of the ancient building, which will be looking especially bright and cheerful bedecked with a number of floral displays by the St Brannock's Flower Guild.
