National Junior Gig Championships Sunday 31 July 2016 Newquay Sunday 31 July saw the finals of the National Championships of the Junior Gigs Division in which there were 30 crews from as far as Hayling Island in Hampshire who were appearing for the second year. The weather was wonderful and Newquay Harbour was bustling with supporters and proud parents enjoying the exciting races and glimpsing the occasional appearance of the local seals hoping for some fishy snacks. As usual the event was organised by John Cuthill and his excellent office staff and tea ladies from Newquay Rowing Club; which ensured a very successful day. The event, which is sponsored by the Cornwall Heritage Trust in the form of the engraved glassware and shields, was attended by the Chairman, Lt Col Philip Hills, and Lt Col Richard Trant who presented the prizes. His Father, General Sir Richard Trant, late Chairman and President of the Trust and a Newquay boy, instigated the sponsorship in 2006 and it is due to be renewed in 2020. Cornish Gigs are part of the living heritage of Cornwall; participants being both young and veteran crews and the sport is regarded by the Trust as a tradition which will survive well into the future with new gigs being built and more crews being formed in Cornwall and further afield, both nationally and internationally. Congratulations are due to all the junior crews that took part, who all contributed to make the whole day a great success....
The Reading the Hurlers archaeological excavation will be taking place between Tuesday 13th and Saturday 17th September 2016. A small team from Cornwall Archaeological Unit will be working with a number of volunteers excavating an area adjacent to The Hurlers (triple stone circle complex) on Minions Moor, Bodmin Moor, Cornwall. This exploratory dig will be assessing the presence of a potential “fourth” circle within the immediate landscape setting of The Hurlers. This excavation is part of the HLF funded project Reading the Hurlers. The excavation can be viewed by the public throughout the week and an open day will be held on Saturday 17th from 10am where there will be opportunities to ask questions and learn more about the excavation and wider project. A series of guided walks by archaeologists, geologists and other experts will be taking place throughout the day on 17th and Brian Sheen from the Roseland Observatory will be holding a drop-in workshop between 10.00 am – 4.00 pm which will explore the astro-archaeology of The Hurlers and surrounding area. To find the site, park at The Hurler’s car park (SX 2598 7111) in Minions and walk the short distance north across the moor to the stone circles, where you will see the fenced excavation area. The open day is free and booking is not required.

Exhibition of Stories Inspired by Local Landscape Landscapes are embedded with stories, and unearthing these stories has been the job of the Storylines team, who have been gathering memories from the area to showcase in an exhibition at Wheal Martyn Museum from the 10th September- 13th October. The exhibition, ‘A Landscape Layered with Stories– a View from Carn Grey Rock,’ will launch with a film screening and story sharing session, starting at 6:30pm on Friday 9th September 2016. Using the natural high point of Carn Grey Rock near Trethurgy, local people have been coming together to overlook the unique surrounding landscape and record their memories. Ali Roscoe from Storylines says, “landscapes provide a valuable way of triggering memories, and it has been a real privilege to hear so many. It is important to bring these stories to light and this exhibition is a perfect way of honouring and celebrating them.” The exhibition will give people a chance to explore these personal and intimate stories, by entering a large panoramic installation. A film and creative responses from children from local primary schools, who have taken their own trip up Carn Grey Rock, will also be on display. Mr. Brian McCaldrin, headteacher at Luxulyan School, says “children were engaged with and immersed in their local heritage, giving them a sense of their place in time and history.” This exhibition is a culmination of a 2 year journey for the ‘Landmark Travels, Our Past in a Suitcase’ project, which has been unearthing the stories, traditions and histories connected with landmarks throughout Cornwall. The project is being delivered in partnership with the social...

After 5 years the Trust waved goodbye to our Admin Secretary, Madeleine Baker, who retired last Thursday. Madeleine joined us in 2011 just after the Trust had taken over the office space in Threemilestone; she quickly set up the office and has not stopped since! Celebrations included a lunchtime buffet with trustees before the last Council meeting where Madeleine was surprised with a beautiful cake and bouquet of flowers. Last weekend a small group of staff and trustees ventured down to Sancreed Beacon where they enjoyed a fascinating guided walk led by Mike Hawkey (Property Trustee). It was wonderful to meet the four Dartmoor ponies that live on the Beacon, enjoy the views and see the work being done to manage this very important site. After all that walking it was time for some refreshment and a cream tea was thoroughly enjoyed! Huge thanks to Madeleine for all of her hard work, here’s wishing her a long and very happy retirement!...
