DEVON's NEW WORLD EXPLORERS
VE DAY IN BUDLEIGH Salterton
'VE-Day was the day the lights came on again! In the early evening the sirens sounded the final 'all-clear'. The blackout regulations were lifted and the gas lights in the streets were lit for the first time in over five years. There was an air of relief and rejoicing - even in that sleepy, rather exclusive, seaside resort of Budleigh Salterton.'

The publication of a new biography of Budleigh's celebrated artist and writer, by local author Sarah Bussy, was a perfect excuse to showcase Joyce Dennys' work, including rarely seen pre-war cartoons and paintings made in later life.
The book: Joyce Dennys and Budleigh Salterton. An Artist's Life and Work in her Place and Times 1893-1991 by Sarah Bussy is available through our shop.
