DEATH OF JOAN TOLLEY – 21st June 2019

It is with great sadness that we announce the death on 21st June of Joan Tolley of Crediton in the Dales Nursing Home in Exeter. She was 73 and had no children. Joan was an active lady and belonged to many local clubs and societies including her church. She knew she had a terminal illness and was in a great deal of pain in her last few weeks.

Joan has been a member of Devon Dowsers since October 2010. She became a committee member in 2013 where she was always full of good ideas, and we are grateful to her for her valuable contribution over the years. She became the Club’s Librarian, and was a regular attender at our monthly Talk meetings where she happily helped with the Raffle when asked. She will be greatly missed by us all.

Joan was very interested in gardening and opened her garden for Charity each year which many DD members attended a few years ago. She was an expert in, and also taught, embroidery, also a keen member of the Richard lll Society and visited Leicester Cathedral when his bones were dug up.

We only became aware of her passing yesterday so were unable to represent Devon Dowsers at her funeral which took place at Crediton Parish Church last Friday 12th July 2019.

Council are sending a letter and card of condolence to her family.

Diana Burton – Secretary

“Riding the Dragons of Devon”

 A talk by Sean Ferris

Ashburton Town Hall, TQ13 7QQ, Sunday 29th September 2019 at 2.00pm

Sean will be talking about his long-standing conversations with “Dragons”, (Earth energy currents like the Michael and Mary lines). He sees these as rivers of consciousness, which influence evolution by carrying myth, and legend, whilst helping to shape human behaviour.


Sean argues that Devon can been seen as an extraordinary nest of Dragons, which has world-renowned legends such as Arthur and the Grail associated with it, and whose energies have influenced famous characters in history as well as past Kings and Queens.


He will provide a unique analysis of the influence these Dragons have had on creative centres such as Dartington Hall, and the town of Totnes, with new mapping information which reveals the real power of these sites, never seen before. Find out more
