Jun 7th - 8th

The row from Clovelly to Lundy and back across 32 miles of open seas is a huge test of endurance. Depending upon the weather and tides, it can take up to four hours. Do come along and support the brave crews! They leave Clovelly at 8am and arrive at Lundy at about 11am. The following day they leave Lundy at about 1pm and arrive back at Clovelly at about 4pm

Jul 20th, Clovelly Maritime Festival

Starting at 10 a.m., the day will be full of fun and cram-packed with a programme of all sorts of activities and entertainment for all ages.
There'll be lively music, cookery demonstrations, crafty creations and family activities throughout the day.

The quay will be full of seafood kitchens, arts and crafts and facepainting too. The New Inn, in the heart of the village, will be offering two lunch specials and fresh strawberrry and cream teas with home made scones.

Jul 28, Woolsery Agricutural Show

Summer in North Devon would not be complete without a visit to this ever popular show.

Classes include crafts, cattle and sheep, together with horse and pony competitions. There will be a display of vintage farm machinery, a display of hounds and the Young Farmers' "It's a knockout". You'll find bustling trade stalls offering locally made crafts and food with fairground rides and a bouncy castle for the children.

It's a great summer day out for all the family!

Nov 16, Clovelly Herring Festival

Clovelly was once a major centre for herring fishing and our annual Herring Festival is held to promote these tasty, nutritious 'Silver Darlings' and support carefully managed fishing as carried out by our local fishermen.

Have you seen a Great spotted woodpecker around the Hartland Peninsula?

Most of us have heard woodpeckers... but how many of us have seen one? The Great spotted woodpecker can be seen all year round in our woodlands and hedgerows, although they are quite shy and will often play 'hide and seek' with watchers! Up to 23cm they are black and white with a distinctive crimson area under the tail. They live on insects and grubs living in dead trees - pecking and boring for them produces that distinctive drumming sound.

They are not particulary endangered but you can still report sightings to the Devon Biodiversity Records Centre.

For more information, photographs and a video of this lovely bird, see this page of the Devon Wildlife Trust website.
