The town with the card

By |2020-01-05T10:18:55+00:00January 3rd, 2020|

We Love Topsham The town with the card Topsham in mid-winter: it’s beautiful, crisp and full of anticipation of the year ahead. Yet I must admit I’m going to miss those beautiful Christmas lights that made the last few weeks of 2019 so wonderful in the town; I miss, too, the throng of people who filled Topsham on that fantastic shopping evening. Those are great memories that will linger until spring when the town will be at its busiest again - and busy, in a good way, [...]

THINGS TO DO

By |2019-03-19T11:55:09+00:00March 25th, 2017|
