South Devon Branch

Information

Newton’s Place, Wolborough St., Newton Abbot

The South Devon Branch of the DA covers the council districts of Teignbridge and South Hams and the unitary authority of Torbay. It meets in Newton Abbot but seeks to reach the wider membership of all who live in South Devon.

We meet for talks in the six winter months of November to April and arrange three excursions of a varied nature during the summer months. We have a small committee which arranges a programme of speakers and walk leaders that covers all aspects of the county.

We also encourage our members to belong to one or more of the DA’s Sections (special interest groups) of which there are eight, covering everything from Botany to Music.

Before the covid lockdowns of 2020 we were holding our indoor meetings in Newton Abbot Library (the Passmore Edwards Building) in Market Street. Usually held on the third Thursday of the month at 2.15 pm, they last for about 45 minutes. When it becomes possible to meet face-to-face again we plan to meet in The St Leonard Room at Newton’s Place in Newton Abbot.

Visitors and new members are particularly welcome at all our events. At present there is no charge to members of the DA for attending a Branch meeting, but to help cover costs we ask for a small voluntary donation. Non-members pay £2. Due to financial constraints set by the Executive Committee, a resolution was passed at our 2020 AGM to charge members £2 and non-members £4 to attend a talk, but this has been postponed until 2021 or ’22.
