Local Society keeps Devonshire Traditions Alive

The Lympstone Society is the local amenity society. It was formed during Conservation Year in 1970, and now has over 200 members. The Society has been given some valuable old records and photographs, and warmly welcomes any additions to preserve for posterity; photographs or documents can be photocopied and the original returned to the owner. Tape recordings have been and continue to be made of some of the older residents' tales of life in the village seventy or eighty years ago. The Society has a copy of the Tithe Map of 1839 and other documents of interest. Because of damage or vandalism, these are now being stored in a private house. Access to them is however open to all at any time; please ask at the Post Office in the village or e-mail the Society's Public Relations Officer, Jane Johnson. Much of the village's history is also now available for all to enjoy on the Lympstone Millennium Map.

The Society arranges a mixed programme of events including talks by experts on conservation and matters of general interest. Concerts and choral events are held regularly and visits to places of interest are arranged during the summer.

The Society has presented a silver cup for the best florally decorated business to be competed for in the Britain in Bloom competition. Lympstone has had many successes in this competition and in the Best Kept Village competition in the past.
