Sun 29 October – An Evening of Paranormal Activities

Member Sara Dyer is organising this Ilfracombe Indoor Market event at 7.30pm on Sunday 29 October.

This is a free pilot session to see if there is a ‘market’ for this activity in Ilfracombe and to see what format would be most likely to be supported and what people would be prepared to pay for such an experience. So please be prepared to tell us what you think if you come along.

Activities include: dowsing rods, use of a ghost box, pendulums, table tipping, human pendulum and temperature changing.

Rules: No alcohol / drugs or persons having recently consumed either. No under 18s. No pregnant persons.

Tea and biscuits will be provided.

Attending? Yes or no? Please let us know.

Wed 22 November – Visit to Barnstaple Crematorium

Member Andy Punchard of Braddicks and Sherborne is organising this as an additional free event from our main monthly meetings. If you are interested in finding out more about the crematorium, please let Andy know asap (if you haven’t already).

Fri 8 December – Christmas Party Meal

Christmas Late Night Opening & Small Business Saturday

In addition to Combe Christmas, there have been enquiries about late opening on a Thursday before Christmas. COMBEbusiness is happy to help publicise this and we need to know which shops and businesses will be opening late and on which days.

Suggested dates are: Thursday 23 & 30 November, 7, 14 & 21 December.

Small Business Saturday is also coming up on Saturday 2 December. To join in this national campaign, you can download a poster to display, have a special offer for customers or simply promote it by sharing on social media. The aim is to get as many people as possible using local businesses.

Participating? Yes or no? Please let us know.
