To end her year it was Sheila’s wish to plant an apple tree in the Orchard, Mules Park in memory of dear Tangent friends who sadly have passed away .

Sheila has now handed the chain of office on to Sam Honeywood, who has a busy year planned with the usual mix of fun events and fundraising.

Sam’s charity is Teignmouth Food Larder. 

‘A special thank you to all the friends of Tangent who generously support us,’ says Pam Stanaway, secretary.
