'Challenge Anneka' memorabilia wanted

Bryher's Community Association is looking for photos, anecdotes and artefacts from the episode of Challenge Anneka that was set on the island.

The 1990 TV show saw the team build a low water jetty - subsequently known as Anneka's Quay - a challenge completed a day late due to the bad weather.

Now Bryher Community Association will focus on the episode for its telephone box mini-museum following the success of last year's When The Whales Came exhibit.

Issy Tibbs wrote on social media: "This year’s display at the phone box museum on Bryher is going to be memories of the Challenge Anneka. Has anyone got any momentos/photos of it they would be willing to lend/donate?

"Last year’s display raised hundreds of pounds for the community association and it would be great if we could do it again."

There will be a different Bryher-themed display every year in the phone box, which the community bought from BT for £1 in March 2017.

Anyone wishing to contribute to the museum is asked to email Issy at
