Liskeard OCS archive team are ready to greet the steady stream of visitors to the Family History Day in Liskeard's Public Hall on 2nd June. Meanwhile our Treasurer is presenting a cheque to the Stuart House Trust in recognition of allowing our Archive to be housed in their magnificent building.

"I enjoyed taking a group of our friends from Looe OCS around the mine, quarry and Prehistoric remains north of Minions on Friday, until we got thoroughly soaked during the last 15 minutes, but hey, the water butts are full again, Brian."

Reports

Huge congratulations to Liskeard OCS member Wendy Dowse, who has achieved a Pass with Distinction in the 1st Grade from KESVA, the Cornish Language Board. Wendy has agreed to put her skills to the test by reading one of the prayers in Cornish at the Crying the Neck event at Bolitho Farm on 1st Sept at 6.30pm, everyone is welcome, after the traditional bit we'll have a little Harvest singsong to remind us of schooldays gone by (and saffron buns). Wendy is on the far left of the photo on St Piran's Day in Truro, another OCS event everyone is welcome to attend, we're advised that it will NOT rain on March 5th 2019!
