Victoria Tea Rooms in Pilton Street
More than 30 people are expected at the Victoria Tea Rooms on Friday, February 28, to learn more about the Pilton Story archive.
Project members delivered invitations to local residents whom they hoped would be interested in discovering what the project is doing and possibly joining them in sustaining the archive of photos, objects, memories and memorabilia.
Some of the team will be on hand to answer questions and support project leader, Martin Haddrill, with a visual presentation.
Finance for the event was accepted from local councillors who’ve encouraged the Pilton Story from its inception.
The BIG PILTON QUIZ is into its fourth year and takes place in Pilton Hall on Saturday 10th May. A sellout since 2011, the Big Pilton Quiz is for the wonderfully tactile ash wood question mark made by Mike Taffinder of North Buckland. Winners so far have been:
- 2011 – Brinded Cats
- 2012 – The Professionals
- 2013 – Glam DJ.
It comes with a light supper for only £5 and raises money to improve the Hall for community use. Last year’s profit of £650 went towards more kitchen cupboards and pans and helped us – The Pilton Story – with equipment for our archive. Tickets will be available from early April. Don’t miss them.
