The Bude Canal and Harbour Society AGM was held at The Castle Heritage Centre, Bude recently.
The chairman of the Society, Chris Jewell, presented Jill White with a framed photograph of the canal and sea lock at Bude taken on 27th August 2016, during the arrival of the lifeboat for the RNLI Weekend. This was presented in recognition the contribution she has made to the society while serving as a trustee. She has now resigned due to an impending move out of the area.
The AGM was preceded by an interesting talk by Graham Wills about the little-known Pinkery Pond and the surrounding waterways which are on Exmoor above Simonsbath. The talk was followed by an excellent buffet lunch provided by the staff at Cafe Limelight.
Just a reminder that the exhibition about the Bude Canal Regeneration Project continues at The Castle Heritage Centre from 10am to 4pm daily until Thursday 2nd March.

Please can you ask on Your local history page, what the history is of these two buildings at Crooklets? I believe the one to the far left is called Ocean House. The reason I’m interested is because the old Penarvor Hotel has sadly been demolished next door.
