Clyst Vale Com­mu­nity Col­lege re­cently held their an­nual day in cel­e­bra­tion of Harry Patch. Each year they mark the day in 1917 when Harry was wounded dur­ing the First World War and his three best friends lost their lives. Started by head of his­tory Heather Pad­den, ev­ery year stu­dents are en­cour­aged to do some­thing in recog­ni­tion of Harry’s ser­vice. For this year’s Harry Patch Day, stu­dents raised £115 for his favourite char­ity, the RNLI by host­ing a “Dress Up Smart for Harry” event, where stu­dents were asked to pay £1 to come to school wear­ing their smartest and most glam­orous out­fits. In­de­pen­dent es­tate agent, Chartsedge re­cently cel­e­brated ex­pand­ing its op­er­a­tion to Totnes with a launch party at its of­fice in 35 Fore Street. Many fel­low lo­cal busi­ness peo­ple and guests at­tended, en­joy­ing a fun net­work­ing op­por­tu­nity with fizz and de­li­cious canapés pre­pared by The Kitchen Ta­ble.

Miles Kevin, co-founder of Chartsedge said: “We are de­lighted to have been able to bring our head of­fice to Totnes and we are en­joy­ing be­ing based in the heart of the town. The party was a great way to let peo­ple know we are here, in spa­cious of­fices in a pretty court­yard and in true Totnes style hid­den down a de­light­ful al­ley­way in the mid­dle of Fore Street.”
