The Lynmouth Floods - Act of God or Act of Man? at 11am
After such a fine September, the heavy rain during recent days sets
the scene for this month's talk by Pam Hogan. Many remember the summer of
1952 when disaster struck the small fishing village of Lynmouth on the North
Devon coast. During one August night flash floods destroyed scores of homes
and claimed 34 lives. But not many recall suspicions that emerged at the
time of Government interference with the weather. Fact or fiction? It was a
question Pam had to answer. This talk uncovers the incredible facts that
create the backdrop for her novel 'Seeds of Doubt', many discovered in top
secret government documents of the time. She includes information from those
documents, book readings and anecdotes about the research and writing
process in this multi-media presentation.

What's On at the Galleries
WHERE THE MIST RISES
This showcase of abstract paintings by Lyme Regis-based artist Annie
Ward will be running at the Rotunda Gallery of the Lyme Regis Museum
27 October until 5 December.
Based on her research into satellite photographs and historic maps
of the Dorset coastline, these works explore the changeable spaces
where the land meets the sea. Annie
begins with detailed drawings on canvas that she scrubs over with
layers of paint allowing shapes to be defined, buried and
rediscovered in an editing process that reflects the ever-changing
nature of coastal margins.
The Museum is open Tuesdays-Sundays
from 10.00 to 17.00 (16.00 on Sundays) and admission fees apply.
For more information, you can visit
Fossils, Fish and Feathers
is an exhibition of recent
by Lyme Bay Artist Trisha Hayman,
which will be on show at the Rotunda
Gallery of the Lyme Regis Museum from 14 September until 24 October.
Trisha’s artwork features some of
nature’s less considered and expendable specimens - some beautiful, some
bland and some often ignored. Her mission is to show the fragility of
nature, especially specimens that are cast-off, discarded and abandoned,
such as animal skulls and antlers, sea shells, birds’ eggs, age-old
fossils and ammonites. Her way of working involves many hours examining
the subject matter closely - so a fine sable paintbrush, a magnifying
glass and plenty of hot pressed paper are her essential work mates.
The Lyme Regis Museum is open daily 10am
until 5pm (4pm on Sundays), and for more information, you can visit
Country and Modern Line Dance
Tuesdays 2 - 3.30pm. the village Hall,
Wesley Close, Charmouth. Small donation to cover Hall hire fees.

Guided Walks and Tours
Liz Jones Memorial Walks
Liz Jones loved
walking and sourced over seventy circular walks in the area. For several years she and her husband David led the U3A Walking Group and after she died in April 2013 members of this group decided
to make some of her walks available to a wider audience as a tribute.
The Group would like to thank David Jones for his leadership and all his support for this project - re-walking each route
and checking our efforts. Our thanks also go to Susie Gamble for creating the model for the walk maps, Sue Wilson for her layouts and technical expertise and Maurice Liddiard for coordinating the project. Click here for more info
