Added: 22 January 2017

Topsam Museum Came to Town on Sunday 22nd January at Matthews Hall with displays and photographs of Topsham shops and their workers.  As wella s much older material the photographs included thoe of Topsham businesses taken in 1997 by Graham Ward.  Nearly 300 people viited the displays and some of them recognised relatives and friends in the 1997 photos.  It was a marvellous occasion!  A constant supply of refreshments, ploughmans lunches and cream teas were provided by the catering volunteers.   About 150 people attended the lecture on Topsham shops Then and Now, a fascinating account by Mark Dant on past shops in the town and brought up to date by Liz Hodges speaking on the present state of buinesses in the town.  Many of our volunteers worked long and hard to make the day such a success.  Although it was tiring everyone had a most enjoyable day.
