EXHIBITIONS are being held in Combe Martin and Hartland as part of the celebrations marking the 50th anniversary of the North Devon coast being officially labelled an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
The AONB team are holdings the events and talks to highlight their work and to encourage members of the community to become involved.
The first event will be at Combe Martin Museum on Thursday, March 25 and the second is at Hartland Parish Hall on Wednesday, March 31. Both run from 1-6pm.
People in both communities are invited to go along and take part, with an opportunity to learn more about the AONB and why it forms an important part of the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve for North Devon.
