Note: The North Devon Journal 1873 carried a report on the Asreigney Ploughing Match on 23rd October 1873.After the competition the villagers retired to the Village School for dinner.Andrew Boundy was the caterer and seems to of provided a sumptous banquet. "The weather was an agreeable contrast to the deluge of the previous Monday at Petrockstowe.it could not be said to be exactly summer weather,and once a shower came scudding across the hills,but there was no damage done,and the cold wind served as a whetstone for dinner.This was served in the British Schoolrooms,and reflected the highest credit on mine host BOUNDY,of the New Inn,Ashreiegney,the caterer.The roast Beef of Old Englanwas flanked by Geese,fowl,and Pheasant,piping hot;a first rate Plum Pudding brought up the rear,and the whole was moistened by some genuine home brewed,which did not savour either of mahogany or brick dust. An article appeared in the North Devon Journal,10th September 1874.giving an account of a race day in Asreigney."The races took place on Monay in last week.A large stand was erected and refreshments were provided by Mr Boundy,of the New Inn.
