We're launching the new Totnes Pounds - which feature local heroes and heroines: Dorothy Elmhirst, Ben Howard, Charles Babbage and Mary Wesley - in the Civic Hall on 20th May 2014 with a 5% discount on the first t£10,000 sold!
People attending the launch evening will be able to see the new notes, designed by Totnes designer Rick Lawrence, and taste The Totnes Pound - a new limited edition ale from New Lion Brewery. Descendants of some of the notable Totnesians who appear on the notes will be coming to talk about how it feels to have their relatives immortalised on the town's own currency. Local lyrical legend Matt Harvey will be sharing how he almost made it on to the notes but was trumped at the last minute by Totnes singer/songwriter Ben Howard. During the evening you'll also hear from new Mayor Jacqi Hodgson, TTT's Frances Northrop and local traders about why they are so excited about the launch!
