Pie and Ale

24th May 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 11:00 pm


Enjoy a 3 course meal including a Bays Brewery pint or a glass of wine or a soft drink – all for £15pp – at The Grand Hotel on Thursday 24th May – 6.30-11pm . Regularly attracting over 200 business people, our Pie & Ale Evenings are fun, informative and great for networking.

Our guest speaker is Alec Collyer MBE, one of the founding members of Dartmoor Search and Rescue Ashburton, who has been involved in countless searches and rescues over a staggering 42 years. The team’s role now is much wider than many people realise as they find the lost, missing, injured and vulnerable not just on Dartmoor, but also across South and East Devon – from the moor to the coast including urban areas such as Torbay and Exeter.

In a community that attracts strong and determined characters, Alec stands out and his constant sense of adventure has benefitted the team immensely. Alec has drawn on his electronic expertise to develop and lead the use of radios, from the huge sets of the ’70s to modern digital units.

Alec was recognised by the Government with an Outstanding Contribution Award, acknowledging his contribution to rescuing people in the severe weather that hit the UK in December 2009 and January 2010 and was also asked by the BBC to carry the Olympic torch in recognition of voluntary search and rescue teams in the UK.
