The ladies of Kings Nympton Tuesday Club enjoying their cream tea at Hall House Bishops Tawton on their recent annual outing
The present listed neo -Jacobean house, built on the site of an earlier home has been in the Chichester family since the early 14 century! The house is still occupied by a descendent of that family.
The party were given a tour of the house and grounds including the ancient thrashing barn and granary by the present owners. A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon despite the heat!

The Club meets in the Kings Nympton Parish Hall at 7.30 pm on the 2nd Tuesday of the month. No meeting in August.
We have speakers, demonstrations and for the occasional meeting we travel and visit a venue of interest.
Each year we arrange a Christmas Lunch and an outing during July.
The Club year is from April to the following March when we have our AGM, at this meeting a programme of events for the following year is given to all members.
The Tuesday Club welcomes male as well female members wanting to join, or as guests wishing to attend just one or two meetings. The annual subscription is £20, non-members £3 per evening.
The Club was formed after the Kings Nympton's branch of the W.I. was disbanded in approximately April 1987. Mrs Stella Stark was the Chairman of the WI at the time and she and others suggested to continue to meet and start another organisation to replace it. The Tuesday Club was then inaugurated and has been in existence ever since.
