Di Curnow kindly opened up her beautiful home to members and their friends and family for what has become an annual event – the summer coffee morning. Despite the showers there was a good turnout and the conversation flowed along with the tea and coffee. There was a delightful range of cakes to choose from and a raffle with lots of lovely prizes. Many thanks to Di and to all those who helped organise the event. We raised over £100!
Our walk started from Lands End following the beautiful coastal path down to Nanjizal where we enjoyed a picnic down in the rocky cove. A very steep climb out of the cove took us inland and we returned to Lands End for a well deserved ice cream. (Shirley)
Camera Club had a fantastic afternoon with wildlife photographer at St Gothian Sands nature reserve . With David’s expert tuition and a plentiful supply of subject matter a wonderful selection of photos were taken. Many thanks to David and to Gail for organising the trip.
Book Club met twice in June. On Wednesday 27th they went to the Acorn Theatre in Penzance to listen to Australian author Tim Winton give a fascinating insight into his writing. Then on Friday afternoon Jane hosted the monthly book discussion for The Door, a partly bioographical novel by Hungarian author Magda Szabo. The next book will be Long Summer Day by R F Delderfield.
The weather was a little disappointing for our walk from Perranunthnoe. In the mist we walked through fields, tracks and minor roads to Keneggy. Once the coast was in sight the mist lifted a little and The Lizard came into view. During the descent to join the coastal path, Rob spotted a couple of foxes in a clearing.
At Cudden Point with a wonderful view of Mount’s Bay we stopped for a picnic and watched a bird of prey hovering close by. The coastal path back was tortuous with plenty of ups & downs but full of colour from the wild flowers. (Mary)
The photograph was taken at Prussia Cove.
The WI Tea Tent was as popular as ever at this year’s Royal Cornwall Show. Teams of volunteers from around the County served tea, coffee and squash along with a selection of scones, cakes and biscuits to the hundreds of show visitors in need of a little refreshment, taking a break in their busy day. There was plenty of time between shifts to see all that the show had to offer – Wendie even managed to catch a moment with a Royal Visitor. Well done to everyone for their hard work and to those who entered the competitions.
Book Club met at Lisa’s this week to discuss the ‘Five Rivers met on a Wooded Plain’the first novel by Barney Norris. The book, set in the Salisbury area, details how the lives of five unremarkable local people have been intertwined over a number of years in a multitude of minor incidents. With a high score averaging 8.2/10 it was enjoyed by everyone. Next month’s book is The Door by Magda Szabo.
