Late News:

I am thinking of revitalising this group which recently ended after 17 years’ sterling leadership from Avril Vincent.
Before selecting a venue I need to know numbers of interested people, but it is likely to be in the Truro area.
This will be a monthly meeting, potentially on a Wednesday afternoon.  Content will eventually be group led however as a starting topic I am suggesting an overview of “classical” music.
Please let me know if you are interested by either telephone 01209 314810 or email
I look forward to hearing from you

Would anyone be interested in making up a local walking group for about 2 hours in an afternoon, say once a fortnight?     We could take a drink and stop half way for a break and a chat.     I was thinking about country or coastal walks in and around Falmouth, Budock Water, Mylor Bridge, Mylor Harbour, Restronguet.      Dogs welcome perhaps!  
If you are interested please contact me at
