Winter Edition Out Now

The winter edition of History Matters is out now. A great story on how the Torquay Motor Yacht and Angling Club was formed then evolved into separate organisations and the development of the Torquay Marine Rescue. Part two of the McCann family brings us to Torquay and their community contribution and involvement in the development of Torquay. We investigated the impact of development on the coast from the effect on the beautiful Karaaf Wetlands to the Split Point light house providing navigation and safety still today.

We enjoy sharing our history and your support allows us to keep researching for more stories. You can pick up a copy at Torquay Newsagent or subscribe to our digital copy at memberships.
