Stay At Home Keep Busy

Message from the Lion Inn – To our lovely loyal customers. 🦁 We are very sorry to say that it is no longer a viable option for us to provide takeaway drink and food during the shutdown. Thanks you to all that have supported us and wished us well. Stay smiling & safe. Theresa & Richard,  Ellis & Finley 🦁


Has anybody any ideas for keeping our minds occupied during this emergency?

I have put together some suggestions below but would like to hear of any other suggestion you may have.

National Theatre At Home – Allan Sutton recommends that anyone in need of a good laugh should log on to the “National Theatre At Home” website and subscribe to the FREE transmission, this Thursday, of a screening of their award winning production of “One Man, Two Guv’nors”, starring James Corden.  This farce has won awards on both sides of the Atlantic and is suitable to all ages.

West Devon Art Workshops are producing online classes to help people feel less isolated and have a bit of fun.  They hope to produce up to 4 classes a week. To sign up click HERE

Storyline Online is a free resource to help with learning during the Covid-19 emergency. Click HERE to see what is available.

Books, puzzles and DVDs – Our fabulous Post Office has a selection which you can use.

The Royal Academy of Dance is offering free online dance lessons suitable for the over 55s. These start at beginners level and are aimed at helping older audiences improve mobility, posture, co-ordination and boost energy levels. Click HERE to take a look.

TIMBERSCOMBE SHOW 2020 – Although we are uncertain whether the show will go ahead you can still prepare some craft items. If the show needs to be cancelled the same classes will be used next year so your work will not be wasted.

If you have the space why not grow some vegetables for the show?  These will be a handy supplement to your food stocks anyway. Seeds are readily available online.

This year we are supporting the Donkey Sanctuary at Sidmouth by knitting donkeys from a pattern supplied by them . These are available from Timberscombe Post Office.

For photographers, this years’ classes are titled:

  1. Village Life
  2. Didn’t we have a luverly time…..? (with caption)
  3. Exmoor Bridges
  4. Insects
  5. Boats (Black and white)

As usual, photographs should be coloured, unless specified, and no larger than 125 x 180mm (5 x 7ins) including mount, if used.

Also, new this year, there will be a novice class for budding handicrafters. The class is open to any type of handicraft so please get thinking about what you can put in.

Any queries: please phone Wendy on 01643 841471.
