THE FRIENDS OF ST MABYN CHURCH


Very many thanks to Richard Jenkin of St Mabyn, who spoke to an extremely attentive audience at our meal in St Mabyn Village Hall on 27th November. His inspirational account of the time he spent teaching deprived youngsters in the township of Port Elizabeth was very well received and much appreciated.
Our next meal with wine, followed by a speaker, will take place in St Mabyn Village Hall on Friday 22nd January, 12 noon for 12.30, when Lady Mary Holborow has very kindly agreed to speak on the history of the Lord Lieutenancy, a title that dates back to the Tudors. Lady Holborow has held office as Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall since 1994, a title that is given to a Monarch's personal representative in a particular area. Reservations for this meal and talk are already being made and, as numbers are limited, we recommend early booking. Admission is £12 (£10 for Members) payable at the door. To reserve a place please 'phone or email Chairman Liz Williams on 01208 841378 or Audrey Cooke on 01208 841607 If you would like to become a Member of Friends’ and benefit from concessions, you can either join on the day or contact Carol Grigg on 01208 841276. Membership remains at only £10 per annum.
The speaker at our meal on Friday 5th March will be Giles Clotworthy, who will talk about his many years working for the National Trust. We are also currently taking bookings for this event.
