Village pantomime – 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!
A very special 90th birthday on 31st January
We wish Jean Potter a very happy and joyful 90th Birthday! Love from John, Dianne and the rest of the family. XXX
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.
The Arts Festival
Over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend many artists displayed their wonderful paintings, ceramics, woodwork and sculptures for us to enjoy. Thank you to all the artists who helped transform the village church, to Liz Miskin and her team of wonderful supporters, and to the refreshment providers too. Here’s Yvonne looking at one of the many paintings:
Village Pantomime – Red Riding Hood
We hope you enjoyed this year’s fabulous village pantomime, based on the wonderful story of Red Riding Hood. The wolf tried hard to frighten the three (none-too-clever) pigs into helping him with his dastardly scheme to capture and eat Red Riding Hood but fortunately good magic overcame his nasty ways.
Jack and Jill kept leaving their bucket lying around and cheekily expected the audience to warn them if anyone tried to steal it, the pigs proved they were not good builders (never finished a job) and Billy the woodcutter saved the day!
Many congratulations to the wonderful cast, all the behind-the-curtain helpers, producer, director, musical director, for treating us all to such fun!
Flower Festival 2015
This year’s flower festival explored A Grand Day Out and included a few rounds of golf, a garden party at Buckingham Palace, tea at The Ritz, a wedding, a visit to Eden and many more!
