What Societies and Society Members are doing to fulfil this fundamental principle
Perranzabuloe OCS has very recently published "Reminiscences of Perranporth from the year 1833". This originally appeared in 1939 and is well worth reading wherever you live, as it gives a real insight into the mining and fishing community before its growth into a notable seaside resort. This is also available from the Federation's bookshop
31st May: As part of the Nick Darke 70 Celebrations (Nick Darke would have been 70 this year), Hall For Cornwall's Senior Youth Theatre are putting on a production of Hell's Mouth at HFC on 31st May. Directed by Simon Harvey and Sam Colborne.

Two framed pictures which were left in the Memorial hall after our recorder's day, they are both of gentlemen in naval dress with one Commodore Hotham D. 1813. Are they yours? firstname.lastname@example.org
I have just been alerted by Margaret Stevens of St. Ives OCS of a form available from email@example.com which appears to have replaced the local council permission to hold a Midsummer Bonfire. It appears that it has taken a VERY long time for the form to be sent through, so don't see about it dreckly.
I worry that this could be yet another erosion of our ancient festivals. Good luck.
