Buckland Brewer History Group contributed to the parish celebrations last night, commemorating the 90th birthday of Her Majesty the Queen. We had put together a small display about life in Buckland Brewer in 1926. Members will be able to read some of this information in future issues of the History Group newsletter. It was cold but it was dry and with true Buckland spirit we stuck it out to watch fireworks and to light our beacon. We could see the next beacon in the chain glimmering in the distance at Torrington and it evoked thoughts of a time when these chains of beacons were vital to the defence of the kingdom.
