Our First Walk of the New Year

Despite the rain, six members completed the five-mile circular walk from Falmouth on Wednesday.  The first half took us through quiet streets and lanes to Swanpool. Shortly before Swanpool the rain stopped and we were able to enjoy the wonderful views of  the beaches, Pendennis Castle and St Mawes.


Our reward was a big bowl of soup in the cafe at Gyllyngvase Beach!  Highly recommended. The rest of the walk followed the coastal path back to our cars.

Our next walk is from St Ives and is on 11th February. If you’d like to join the group, send us an email on crowlasludgvanwi@gmail.com.

A Day out in Falmouth

Last week a small group of us (including honorary WI member Miss Ruby) set off for a splendid day in the sunshine in Falmouth.

We began by taking a lovely boat ride up the Fal, stopping off in Malpas for a coffee. The sun was bright, the sky was blue and it couldn’t have been a better day.

After the boat trip, we headed to Rick Stein’s for some al fresco fish and chips in a delightfully shady spot. Following lunch, some of us headed to the Falmouth Art Gallery while others browsed in the shops.

Thanks to Kathy for organising such a wonderful day!
