Gift to Sir Francis Chichester
This commemorative, harvest-style pottery jug, the work of Mr Harry Juniper, a local potter and teacher, now living at Monkleigh, and who comes from Torrington, is to be Bideford's gift to Sir Francis Chichester.
It was noticed among the display at the annual exhibition (now on) of the Westward Ho! and Bideford Art Society, by the Mayor of Bideford, Mr Harold Blackmore. At their meeting last week Bideford Town Council unanimously agreed to his suggestion that it should be purchased for presentation to Sir Francis on behalf of the town.
