St Mabyn Village News

News from the village of St.Mabyn in North Cornwall...

Sunday, May 20, 2012


Due to family illness, unfortunately our May speaker was unable to come and give her talk of Summer Flowers to St Mabyn Garden Club.  But, never fear, our intrepid chairman John Lobb gave  members a fun and interesting evening of Quiz questions.  Thank you John for such an enjoyable evening.

Our Spring Trip took members to the National Trust property Godolphin House near Helston.  Unfortunately the weather was not kind to us as the rain came down!  But members found the tour of Godolphin House very interesting as it was built between the 15th and 17th centuries. Also some strange alterations done during the19th and 20th centuries with wooden panels walls to divide up larger rooms.  Also I lost count how many bathrooms there were.  Members braved the weather to explore the gardens, which unfortunately could not be fully appreciated due to the weather.
On our way home we stopped at the Garden Centre at Breage  for a welcome cup of tea and coffee, not to mention the amazing portions of homemade cakes.
In September we are visiting Rosemoor Gardens, North Devon. If you would like to join us, please contact Angela Bunney 01208 841511.  Have a sunny and happy summer, see you in the autumn.
