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

We regret to report the death of Donald Rawe
Donald was a major figure in Cornish culture, politics, heritage and publishing - a writer and driving force behind the Cornish Literary Guild. A campaigner, scholar, poet and novelist, a man of Padstow, chronicler of his town and without doubt a forceful thinker and excellently patriotic and creative businessman of the post-War era.
Can anyone help with information about Clowance and the
St Aubyns please?
