North Devon Lorry Campaign

North Devon Marketing Bureau have recently unveiled their fantastic new lorry that is off on its adventures, travelling over the country promoting North Devon.

To celebrate the launch of this and the new North Devon website ( an event was held in Barnstaple. Val Wood, Director of North Devon Marketing Bureau was asked if the North Devon Farm Holiday group would be able to make scones for the official launch.

It was quite a feat to co-ordinate as 300 scones were made as far apart as Holsworthy in the West to Ilfracombe in the East, Umberleigh in the South and all places in-between!

North Devon Group received so much support and help in organising the event, and it could not have been possible without delicious jam from Lizzy’s Larder, Milton Damerel and plenty of clotted cream from Phillip Dennis of Barnstaple & Ilfracombe.

To accompany the scones, what could be better than Champagne?! This was very kindly provided by Brend Hotels, a local family run group of luxury hotels.

Despite the cold weather the scones and champagne were very well received and the event went without a hitch. The lorry was given a great send off on it’s journey throughout the UK – you won’t be able to miss it!

North Devon Group would also like to thank Brend Hotels for supplying the tables and gazebos, and also Fidelius Insurance for allowing the use of their room.

We have the recipe that was used to make those 300 scones, why not make some for yourself this Bank Holiday weekend?!
