Cury Village Hall

























At the January meeting of Cury & Gunwalloe Old Cornwall Society Members were dressed up warm ready to take their drink and a piece of toast to a nearby orchard where they carried out the Wassail; on the apple trees. The toast was for the robins and the drink (whatever it was) was thrown against the tree to help fertility.


Returning to the Village Hall there was a nice warming cup of tea ready after which Glen Humphreys gave a presentation on Cornish apples and told us which ones were best for eating, cooking and cider making.


We will be doing a project on apple orchards in our area and recording where they are and the type of apple grown.


There is no meeting in February as we are having our dinner; our next meeting will be from 7.00pm Thursday, 14th March at 7.30p.m at Cury Village Hall.
