Reports

 

 

On Fri 12 May 2017, the Liskeard Old Cornwall Society held their annual social

with Her Worship the Mayor of Liskeard, Cllr Jane Pascoe, as their principal quest.

Also attending were four members each from the Old Cornwall Societies  of Bodmin,

Launceston, Looe, Saltash and Torpoint.  All were entertained by Mr Eddie Harve,

(Pensilva) with his electronic guitar to music and song from the 1950/60, having

everyone both foot tapping and singing along that no one wanted to go home!  

An ample buffet was provided by the members along with a selection of raffle prizes.
