Mr Aesop's Story Shop

Local illustrator Jago's book Mr Aesop's Story Shop (written by Bob Hartman) was recently reviewed by Mary Crawford
"The illustrations are admirably judged: rich, subdued colours, with just a flash of bright red over Aesop's stall, they focus the readers attention and compliment the text brilliantly. Mr Aesop's Story Shop is a beautiful book, highly recommended for libraries or as a gift."

Sandra Goodswen, our speaker for March, gave a very interesting talk with slides on The Saint’s Way, a 27 mile ancient trackway that cuts right cross Cornwall from Padstow to Fowey. It only came to light in 1984 when some local ramblers found a series of forgotten ancient stiles. Ancient Celtic traders are thought to be the first users of this footpath. There are many historic remains to be discovered along this trail and if you are willing to wander slightly of the track you will find little churches and other intersting artifacts from Cornwall’s mysterious past. I must not forget to mention the marvellous scenery and wild flowers. After a very appreciative round of applause from the assembled members tea and biscuits were served.
The Garden Club Annual General is to be held on Wednesday 13 April, 7.30 pm St Mabyn Village Hall. Membership is still only £5 for the year .Colin Hyde will be giving us an illustrated talk on his recent trip to New Zealand. Should be very interesting .

For more information please contact me Angela Bunney (secretary) on 01208 841511.

Fears about industrial solar panel farm

Antonia Willis has just started a petition because she considers the Allen valley is about to be dominated by SunPower Corp’s 40-acre industrial solar panel farm (15,700 PV panels, 8 ft off the ground) unless we do something about it. Public consultation has been almost non-existent so the Parish Council have asked SunPower to present their plans at a public meeting in St Mabyn on March 16th, after which the planning decision will be taken. She needs as many signatories as possible before March 16th – will you help?
-          If you’re on Facebook, you can join this new group: Save The Allen Valley, which also has a link to the petition.
