Sponsored Fiddle

On the 29th September we held a sponsored fiddle.  The Reverend Philip Greenhalgh played the fiddle, guitar, squeeze box, mouth organ and sang various folk music.

Over the two hours there was a steady flow of people and many who just popped in for a few minutes ended up staying for the rest of the two hours.

A very enjoyable time was had by all.

Parish Magazine News October 2018

From the Editor…
Well, nobody has volunteered to take on ‘Parish News’ in any format, so this is the penultimate issue .
It has been fun to edit the magazine for what I was surprised to discover has been fifteen years.
In February 2003 Graham Salmon asked me to share the editing after Mike Lane retired. When Graham also retired Brian Perman for a short while shared the editing, and he developed the magazine from a modest
A5 booklet to the present 16-page A4 format with illustrations.

More recently I have been the only editor, and with Paul Robins’ help the magazine now appears in full colour on our church websites as well as in ‘hard copy’ for local distribution and posting ‘out of parish’.
I want to say a huge ‘thank you’ to all our contributors, regular and occasional, our ‘church’ reporters, organisers of local events, and our school, for providing varied and interesting articles and reports over so many years. It all takes time and commitment and a strict adherence to
deadlines and I am deeply grateful to you all. And of course our loyal advertisers have supported the publication of the ‘News’ for many years.
So what next?
In the past year we have issued in alternate months a brief ‘newsletter’ with brief notices and information about events and activities in our churches and parishes. And we would like to continue this in 2019 with an issue each
month, BUT chiefly as an emailed or online version. Our delivery team’s average age is well over ‘retirement’ and a few would like to retire. Given that many of us have access to email, all we need is your email address and an agreement to receive the newsletter in electronic format.
Please email me [c.edwards531@btinternet.com] to say ’please email me the benefice newsletter in 2019’ with your name and email address and I’ll make sure it arrives in your in box!
For those without computer access, a few copies will be printed and left in our churches for you to collect. There will be no copies delivered or posted.
This new format will allow the newsletter to be flexible in size and content – and of course it will be free both by email and on the church websites. Yolande will help with the editing – a [fairly] willing volunteer!
And finally, thank you to you, our readers, for your
loyalty and support over the years.

News August 2018

What a marvellous day we had for our annual cream tea afternoon in the garden of Glebe House on the 14th July. Despite clashing with
a certain football match and a tennis final it was very well attended. It was lovely to welcome people from not only the village but also
from all over the Roseland. We raised an amazing £408
for church funds. Thank you to everyone who came and a
very big thank you to Caroline and Philip for hosting the event.
On the 25th June members of the congregation attended the Annual Meeting of the Cornish Historic Churches Trust at St. Gerrans Church.
The guest speaker, Dr. Stuart Blaylock, a noted archaeologist and architectural historian, gave a very informative talk on the
Early English Period of English Gothic which covers the 13th century in
Cornwall. Several of the examples that he used to illustrate his talk are to be
found in St. Rumon’s church. Our Patronal Festival will be celebrated during the service of Holy Communion on the 2nd September at 9.30am.
