PAST EVENTS

Many thanks to Rowena Castillo-Nicholls who organised our Tin Coast Field Trip near St Just. We saw some awesome scenery, were touched by Cornwall’s tin mining history and the bird watchers had a good day too…

We had a stand on Saturday 13th July at the Liskeard Show, on Monday 15th July at the Sithians Show and Saturday 20th July at the Camborne Show.  These all gave us the chance to connect with the public and discuss current concerns regarding protecting the Cornish countryside, not to mention enrolling quite a few new members!

We had a predictably good turnout for our guided tour of Camel Valley vineyard on Friday 6 September. We were shown round the winery, heard about the growing season of the vine and how the grapes are transformed into award-winning wines – and of course, tried a glass of wine.

Our woodland walk was held on 21st September, starting at the village of Helford,  to the historic farmstead of Kestle Barton where there is a art gallery and a beautiful garden. Unsurprisingly, we ended with lunch at the waterside pub.

On Sunday the 6th October we had two events, meeting our members and the public at the Launceston and Callington Ploughing Match plus a bridleway clearance party, opening up access to some beautiful countryside near Mousehole.  This featured our new CPRE Cornwall TASK FORCE and we shall be seeing a lot more of them in 2020.
