Sharpham Retreats at Home

In a short space of time Covid-19 has profoundly affected our lives. This 1-day Retreat at Home can help support and nourish you as you face new challenges and uncertainties. This mindfulness retreat offers support from experienced meditators via The Barn Retreat centre. There will be a maximum of 15 people on this retreat with opportunities for smaller group sharing. You'll be encouraged to bring mindfulness to your home life in mindful activity breaks throughout the day as a way to support your continued practice. The retreat will take place online using the platform Zoom (see further information below to ensure you have the minimum tech requirements).   

Apple Day at Sharpham

Sunday 4 October 2020 - 10.30am - 4pm Apple Day will include a host of apple-themed activities for all the family, including storytelling, walks, arts and crafts and games. Activities will be confirmed nearer the date.  Try the fresh juice grown at Sharpham's organic orchards - straight from the press. Or bring your own apples to juice (just not windfalls from orchards grazed with animals in the last six weeks). In exchange for bringing the fruit, you will be given half of this delicious freshly-pressed apple juice back in new bottles while the other half will be kept to help support the charitable work of the Trust. This is up to a maximum of 12 litres of juice (which on a 50/50 split between us would need 72 kilos of apples from you!).  

Teign Maritime Shanty Festival

The 2019 festival was a huge success, filling the towns of Teignmouth and Shaldon with crowds of supporters, raising the profile of Shanties and the River Teign community, as well as raising £2,000 for charity. Sea shanties were essentially work songs, set to a rhythm for working, to reduce the monotony of undertaking repetitive tasks aboard ship. But they were also Foc’sle songs, which were storytelling verses to be listened to at leisure, to remind sailors of home and these helped to keep alive traditions and record local events and people. In the Teign estuary area we are blessed to have talented songwriters such as Bob Freshwater, who painstakingly research historical records and craft their own recording of such events and so keep them alive for future generations. This year there will be around 40 sets of shanty singing groups attending – up from 27 last year, coming from all over the UK as well as overseas. One of the shanty groups attending, The “Longest Johns”, were featured in Gareth Malone’s television program “The Choir” and also performing are Teignmouth’s very own Sea Shanty singing group, the Back Beach Boyz.
