RAF Harrowbeer 1940s Weekend

The 2019 RAF Harrowbeer 1940s Weekend took place over the weekend of the 11th & 12th August 2018. Sadly, torrential rain on the Saturday night meant that the Sunday of the event had to be cancelled. The show ground and car parks were too dangerous for visitors to use. This was a bitter blow for us after twelve months of preparation, (and after such a lovely hot summer) but could not be helped.

However, in the run-up to the event, we challenged the Shops at Yelverton to go ‘All 1940s’ and dress their premises in a 1940s theme. We then awarded the best one with the ‘RAF Harrowbeer Memorial Trophy’ for the best dressed shop or business. The 2018 Winner was ‘The Game Larder’. We also awarded ‘Beau’ at Leg O’Mutton with a ‘Highly Commended’ award as although the shops there were not included in the original challenge, Beau, March Hair, Dartmoor Bakery and Rockin Bikes all had a go anyway, and we felt their efforts should be rewarded!
