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.

Moths are one of those insects that you see flitting about but never get a really good look at, well now is your chance. You will be amazed at the different colours, sizes and patterns on the moths. On Friday night, Saturday morning, we will be putting our moth traps out and hopefully catching a wide selection of moths from three different locations on the Roseland. You are invited to drop in to the Reading Room at Ruan Lanihorne between 9 am and 11 am and see what we have caught over night, have a look at our traps and have a go at identifying some of the moths. Carol has only been using a moth trap since November last year but Simon and Graham have been trapping for several years. Throughout the morning there will be light refreshments served.

New editor needed!
After many years the editor has reluctantly decided for a number of reasons that this year will be her last as editor of ‘Parish News’ – your last magazine in this format may well be December’s issue.
Anyone who would like to take on the rôle would have a free hand in the size, design and content – from the current A4 ‘newsletter’ to something a bit more ambitious. Call Christine if you’re interested: ’desk-top
publishing’ can be fun!
