Ron brightens up Hatherleigh
By Neil Price, Co-Editor

December 6, 2007: Ron Bendle, the hero of the Village, did not need a soap box to get his message across before lighting up the town. “Keep money Local!” “Encourage the local business”. “Spend here not in Plymouth or Exeter.” A large percentage of the town turned out on Monday night, the rain only put in a brief appearance which encouraged people to retreat into the Craft Fair put on in the George Hotel by the Hatherleigh Citizen of the year Bev Wrenn had a high standard of goods for sale, both unusual and practical as well as our local cheese producers from Curworthy.
