A Social History’, is the Chair of consumer health champion, Healthwatch, and gives talks on local history:  “As we travel around South Devon, we come across many names of our towns, villages, rivers, and the streets where we live. Some of these names go back hundreds or even thousands of years. Many have obvious explanations; others have hidden stories to tell.  All give us a glimpse of our Celtic, Saxon, Medieval, Victorian, and more recent past.
