June Walk in Penzance

With Shirley off on holiday, Mary V took the reins this month and led our walking group.

According to reports, it was a fantastic day! Mary gave information from a guide book and also from her extensive local knowledge. The group then enjoyed lunch in Penlee Gardens.

Thanks for filling in, Mary!

Farmers’ Market

On Friday, we had a stall at the Penzance Farmers’ Market. The array of craft items we had on sale was truly amazing. You are all such talented ladies!


Foot traffic at the market was very light, unfortunately. Many of the regular vendors told us that things hadn’t picked up much since the market returned to St John’s Hall. We are sure they will, however, as the market is such a treasure!

In the end we made nearly £70 for Crowlas & Ludgvan WI, which is nothing to sneeze at. And we’ll be at Ludgvan Village Open Day this Sunday to try to add more to our coffers!


Thank you so much to all who made and donated items for the stall, as well as to those who staffed it during the morning. You’re all stars!


Find us at the Farmers’ Market this Friday!

farmers marketThis Friday, 4 October, we’ll have a stall at the Penzance Farmer’s Market at St John’s Hall.

If you have anything in the way of produce, baked goods or craft items you’d like to donate for us to sell, please drop it off at Gill’s by Thursday at the latest.

If you can’t donate anything, don’t worry! But please do stop by on Friday if you can and say hello!

A Postcard to Penzance

postcardWith the importance of saving town centres at the front of everyone’s minds at the moment, The Exchange in Penzance is putting on ‘A Postcard to Penzance’, an evening of debate, discussion and dreams on Thursday 9 May from 6-8pm. This is a free event, but you do need to book through Eventbrite.

The Exchange describes it as:

An optimistic panel discussion in which everyone with a view on the regeneration of Penzance is invited to contribute. Guest speakers include Sarah Gaventa and Alan Boldon who will present case studies offering new thinking on the issues blighting British towns. They will be followed by local speakers with a Penzance perspective, and then the floor will be opened up to positive discussion. You are invited to bring and share your suggestions, dreams and aspirations for the future of Penzance.

If you’re on Facebook, you can follow the event here.

Please do try and get to The Exchange on the 9th. It sounds like a really important and informative evening.
