We have joined up with the Braunton Village website at www.braunton.org.uk!

20131112-095758.jpgThe Braunton Village website at www.braunton.org.uk was set up by Barrie Kissack back in 1999 (and indeed comes up number two on a Google search for Braunton). Barrie has now retired from running the site and has very kindly passed it on to us at AboutBraunton.com with a view to joining the forces of the two websites. For the moment the original site will remain up and with Barrie’s blessing the focus will now be on AboutBraunton.
