St Teath Scarecrows
Many congratulations to the WI for organising a unique and fun way to explore the village on Saturday 5th October. Scarecrows peeped out from all corners of the village to raise smiles and laughter. Congratulations to the winners – did you spot Paddington Bear outside the school?
Flower Festival 2019
St Teath Parish Church was transformed again in early July with flower arrangements to counter the well, not quite summer, weather.
Many thanks to Pauline Kent for the photographs.
Robin Hood Pantomime
So this year’s pantomime left audiences rolling with laughter as usual – thanks to the St Teath drama group for all their hard work – and remember to look out for the next panto in the Feb half term next year!
The rain held off and many enjoyed the fantastic annual village parade, with a presidential visit, an appearance by The Smurfs and much more!
Many thanks to ©Adrian Jasper for all the photographs.
Flower Festival, Music in Bloom
Many thanks to all the wonderful flower arrangers who transformed St Teath church into such a glorious sight. Can you work out the songs or music shown in the arrangements?
Village pantomime 2017 – Snow White and a number of small people!
Thanks to a wonderful cast and support from dedicated directors, stage hands, and the like, St Teath enjoyed another fantastic pantomime. Here’s to the next one!
St Teath Citizens honoured
The Rotary Club of Camelford honoured its Citizens of the Year at a celebration at Bowood Park Golf Club and this year’s deserving recipients were St Teath’s very own Lorraine and David Jasper.
At the presentation ceremony David and Lorraine were astonished to see large numbers of their friends and family who had succeeded in keeping the celebratory dinner a secret and who were all eager to congratulate the couple on such a well-deserved honour. Elaine Reynolds cited the many good causes which have benefited from the couple’s dedication and hard work over the years, particularly the Merlin Appeal which established and continues to maintain the MS Therapy Centre at Hewaswater, and for which David and Lorraine have raised many thousands of pounds. For the past 25 years Dave has been Chairman of the Village Show, and a leading light in the Drama Group, acting in and directing the annual pantomimes. Lorraine has also won prizes for her exceptional floral art and cookery. She is a longstanding member of the WI and has contributed delicious items to countless fundraising events in the village, as well as – with husband Dave – helping with the Village Lunches over many years. Lorraine is also a valued member of St Teath Church Choir.
It’s impossible to list all the many ways in which David and Lorraine have contributed to the life of our community or the many acts of kindness they have performed for friends and strangers alike. They are always ready to help anyone in need in whatever way they can. As Johnny Cowling said in his letter of appreciation, ‘Every village needs a David and Lorraine!’ So true!
Village Show August 2016
A spectacular range of talent was laid out before us all at the St Teath Village Show this year. Congratulations to the organisers and and contributors, but especially to all the knitters whose generosity with time and wool led to more than 100 tiny and beautiful premature baby hats being knitted, now donated to the special care baby unit.
There were many other entries too (sadly too many to capture as images here): collages, miniature gardens, wonderful baking, preserves and home-made wines and more.
Happy Birthday, Your Majesty!
Villagers turned out to celebrate a very special 90th birthday, enjoying much cake, laughter and plenty of treats.
