News and Events

As the year draws to a close, you can see a copy of the latest December 2020 Newsletter here.

The planned Annual General Meeting at Manaton Parish Hall on Wednesday 20th January 2021 has been cancelled due the the current government guidelines for people to stay at home.

 

Our annual Show and Sale went ahead with great success on 28th August 2020, despite the Covid-19 restrictions. With Countryfile cameras and presenter Adam Henson, also a Whiteface Dartmoor member/supporter in attendance, ram prices peaked at £800 guineas (see below) and the top price ewes reached £150.
