Dogs to be kept on leads at Castle an Dinas

Dogs to be kept on leads at Castle an Dinas

A dog attack resulted in 3 lambs being killed at Castle an Dinas on Monday. Sheep graze on the site, owned by Cornwall Heritage Trust, from April to October and are owned by a local grazier.  Dog walkers are warned that the sheep are on the site through the use of clear signage and are asked to keep their dogs under control.  Following this attack, which was likely to have been committed by more than one dog, Trustees direct that anyone walking their dog on the site MUST keep them on a lead at all times. When the sheep leave the site (usually in October) the rules may be relaxed however it is imperative that dog owners keep control of their pet at all times and dispose of its mess responsibly....

Cornish Song Project

Cornish Song Project

Last year the Trust organised the Cornish Song Project with children from Wadebridge, Perranporth, Newlyn East and Newquay to introduce children to traditional Cornish songs.  The children took part in workshops to learn the songs with the aim of performing them at the Lowender Peran Festival.  The songs and music were recorded live at Lowender Peran and the audience was encouraged to join in by projecting the words onto a screen.  The songs, backing tracks and scores can be found on the CHT website and are available for schools to use.  There is also some background and history to each song and links to more information and resources that may be useful.  Huge thanks to everyone that helped to make this project so successful, it is very much hoped that Cornish schools will find this a valuable resource! To access the song resources and to find out more about this project please follow the link: Cornish Songs in Schools...
