Welcome...

Hello, and welcome to St Ives Local! What a summer it’s been — quite different to 2020! But’s it’s not over yet. The town is about to get even busier as we welcome not one but three special events. It’s festival time on two fronts. Firstly, there’s the return of the hugely popular St Ives September Festival, featuring a huge range of entertainment in venues throughout town. We’ve got the programme inside this issue. Then there’s the Food and Drink Festival on Porthminster Beach. Postponed in 2020, it’s back this year, a few months later than usual, but with a star line-up of chefs as well as its own music programme. There will also be the exciting spectacle of the Tour of Britain cycle race speeding around the bay. Don’t forget to keep logging on to our dailyupdated website and social media channels — you’ll find us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.

Cruise in the bay Tom Cruise was, well, cruising around Cornwall this summer and he dropped anchor for a day or two in St Ives Bay, much to locals’ intrigue. Sightings were claimed, but he looked to be staying on board the superyacht, Triple Seven. With a lavish interior, including a spa bath and multiple dining areas, as well as stacks of water sports equipment, who could blame him?

Tour of Britain - a cycling spectacular St Ives is gearing up to welcome the Tour of Britain cycle race, which starts from Cornwall on Sunday 5th September, with a 180km stage through the county. Starting from Penzance, competitors will arrive in St Ives from St Just, then travel onwards to Carbis Bay, Lelant, and Hayle, before heading towards Redruth via Gwithian and Carnhell Green. British Cycling and organisers SweetSpot will use each stage of the Tour to celebrate Britain’s key workers and community heroes. Each day will play host to a special cycle ride at the start and finish, giving the chance to show appreciation

to the unsung members of Britain’s cycling community. ITV4 will broadcast live flag-to-flag coverage of every stage, as well as a nightly highlights show. And the Cornwall-based Saint Piran cycling team will be among those taking part. The direct economic boost to Cornwall is conservatively estimated at £3m. Cornwall Council’s portfolio holder for the economy, Stephen Rushworth, said: “This event is an absolute gift to Cornwall. We can show the world how adept we are at organising a largescale event, we can showcase a spectacular 111mile route through some of our main towns and exceptional beauty spots, and we can emphasise our dedication to sustainable transport and the lead Cornwall is taking in carbon reduction. “A key part of accepting this gift is our commitment to making sure, as far as possible, the day runs efficiently, calmly and safely just like any other Sunday. To that end, hundreds of conversations are under way in the lead up to 5th September, talking to the business, transport and service providers that may be affected by temporary road closures or no parking zones. Forward thinking will minimise disruption and allow spectators a day they will remember.”

Celebrating a dynamic dunescape Local artists interested in creating projects to celebrate and promote St Ives Bay’s magnificent sand dunes are being invited to seek grants of up to £1,000. The grants are available from FEAST – which supports artists across Cornwall to work with community volunteers to devise festivals and events – in partnership with the Dynamic Dunescapes project. This national conservation initiative aims to restore sand dunes across England and Wales. In Cornwall, it is led by Cornwall Wildlife Trust, and is focused on the Towans, near Hayle, and Penhale, near Perranporth. Dunes are one of the most threatened habitats in Europe, and artists are asked to think of ways of helping to build understanding and appreciation of these special landscapes. FEAST describes the scheme as “an opportunity to get people excited about the vast landscapes, the shifting sands and open skies, and the rare wildlife that makes these places unique”.

Artwork should be temporary – although it will be digitised for posterity – and have minimal impact on the environment. It could take the form of an installation or an event. The Dynamic Dunescapes Community Art project is part of a rolling programme of small grant awards run by FEAST. The next deadlines for applications are 5th September and 31st October.

Visit https://dynamicdunescapes.co.uk/ to find out more.

Working together to protect wildlife Devon and Cornwall Police have launched a Rural Affairs Advisory Group to help provide protection for the county’s agriculture, wildlife and historic features. The group was initially set up to support the policing of the G7 Summit. Members include representatives from Natural England, Cornwall Wildlife Trust, Cornwall Marine and Coastal Code Group, Historic England, the Marine Management Organisation, Animal Health, the Environment Agency, NFU, British Divers Marine Life Rescue, RSPB, and the Farming Wildlife and Advisory Group. In the run-up to the Summit, group members were asked to give advice on the possible impact of the event on marine wildlife. As a result, volunteer surveyors from Cornwall Marine and Coastal Code Group were stationed at key vantage points around

6

St Ives Bay and Falmouth to monitor the presence of wildlife. Ruth Williams from Cornwall Wildlife Trust said the trust valued this collaborative approach. “It has been really positive to see the consideration being given by the police to work with the group to help mitigate the potential impacts to our wildlife, both on land and at sea.”

Royal visitor takes a keen interest in award-winning Trink Dairy With a successful weekly market now a regular fixture, Trink Dairy is no stranger to hosting visitors, but it was a special day when HRH The Princess Royal came to view the farm and its herd of Friesian Jersey Cross cattle. Situated on the slopes of Trink Hill, the award-winning dairy is operated by Chris and Rachel Knowles. Since selling their produce directly to the public, they have gained a strong reputation for quality, recognised with Taste of the West Gold awards two years in a row. Her Royal Highness was shown the milk production system and bottling process, the grazing cows, milking parlour, and pasteurising facility. A keen farmer herself, she impressed all those attending with the breadth of her knowledge of the dairy industry. Princess Anne was particularly interested in seeing the whole process from ‘grass to bottle’, and was impressed with the attention to detail and the passion the Knowles family show for their cows and their business.

© Tobi Carver hamper of local produce to take back with her in the helicopter and enjoy at home. Chris Knowles told Her Royal Highness: “Your visit is hugely appreciated by businesses. The last year or so has been very difficult for so many businesses, and the encouragement you give by visiting these businesses is greatly appreciated. Small businesses have proved to be light on their feet and adapted quickly – we can take pride in that moving forward. This wouldn’t have been possible without the commitment of our staff and stakeholders – those people who support us in our business, on the farm, in the dairy, our invaluable team.” He added: “Rachel is the driving force behind retailing the milk and selling it locally. She’s really put in a lot of energy and passion in, which goes a long way to driving the business.”

© Tobi Carver Her Royal Highness was impressed by the pasteurisation and hand-bottling processes, and interested to hear of the huge demand for Trink milk in local speciality coffee shops, understanding the huge contrast between this and standard processed milk. She was pleased to hear, too, of Trink’s green credentials in relation to milk deliveries, using two other well established local family wholesalers. After her tour, Princess Anne unveiled a plaque to commemorate her visit and was presented with a

After the visit, Rachel said: “From the moment we were introduced to HRH The Princess Royal she was clearly very relaxed, and in turn put us both at ease. So much so that we were comfortable about offering her the chance to taste Trink milk for herself, which she did enthusiastically, and when I offered to take the glass from her, she insisted on finishing it first! A huge compliment in itself!” Among the guests in attendance were Sarah O’Dea, of Moomaid Ice Cream, Catherine Harvey, of The Orangery Café, Sophie Penney, of Brew Café and Brew Cornwall, Pete Old, of Cornhill Farm Free Range Eggs, and Ugo, of TiramiUgo.

Out on the Towans:

Looking after a very special landscape by Martin Rule, Towans Ranger Lying in an arc along the eastern edge of St Ives Bay are the famous ‘three miles of golden sands’ which make up the beach reaching from the Hayle River to Godrevy. Many people may not realise that immediately behind this beach is the second largest sand dune system in Cornwall. Most of Cornwall is underlain by acidic granite, such as at Trencrom Hill, whereas on the Towans – Cornish for ‘dunes’– the land is alkaline, formed from calcareous shell sand. Many plants and animals occur here that are rarely found elsewhere in Cornwall. Indeed, although only 2% of Cornwall is sand dune, more than 20% of all the county’s plant species occur here! The Towans also support many thousands of silver-studded blue butterflies – in fact, this is one of the best sites in the UK for that species.

neglect’. In previous decades, much of the Towans would have been grazed by livestock – primarily cows and sheep. As these areas have become more visited by people for recreation, farmers have abandoned grazing. This has led to the more vigorous woody vegetation – brambles, gorse, privet etc – expanding and growing over many of the more species-rich grassy areas, which contain the most important and scarcer flora and fauna.

So we are incredibly blessed to have this important and rich wildlife habitat on our doorstep. Virtually the whole area is recognised for its wildlife value by being a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), which basically means it’s a nationally-important wildlife site. This is a nature-equivalent of a cathedral, castle or Roman villa, if you like. However, such areas do not sit there and look after themselves. Threats come in a range of forms such as the risk of built development, climate change, pressure from recreational use etc. One of the most significant threats is actually less obvious, as it relates to what is called ‘benign

to run tasks and outings at the times when lockdowns were eased, sometimes meeting in two socially-distanced ‘bubbles’ to fit in with the government’s Rule of Six. In recent months, we’ve been thinning gorse and ragwort at Godrevy Warren, clearing scrub and weeds at Mexico Towans, and restoring an old Cornish hedge at Gwithian Green.

Since 2015, I’ve been working with a local volunteer group, the Friends of the Towans, to carry out active conservation work to address this and other issues. Much of the work takes place in the autumn and winter when birds aren’t nesting and plants are dormant. This jolly gang can often be seen enjoying a bonfire while clearing back selected areas of vegetation. These committed volunteers also carry out litter picks as well as enjoying guided walks looking at plants, insects, birds and archaeology throughout the year, so it’s an excellent way to meet new, like-minded people, as well as to learn more about the area. Obviously, like everyone else, our activities have been somewhat impacted over the last 18 months by Covid. However, we did manage

n. In fact, now seems like a very relevant and exciting time for us to be re-launching a full activity programme. Many people have discovered nature and our local outdoor places for the first time, or have had a fresh awakening of how important being close to nature is to their health and well-being. Providing people with an opportunity to meet this need locally, and to contribute something positive to the Cornish environment gives the Friends a really important role to play in our community. The Friends meet several times a week, and new members are always welcomed along, so if you fancy giving this a go, email martinrule@talktalk.net, or look out for us around the Towans this autumn. If you spot our stunning new Friends of the Towans sail flags, you’ll know that we’re working nearby!

St Ives Farmers’ Market A chat with Rachel Lynch of Cornish Skin Food When did your interest in natural skin care begin?

I was inspired by my mother. I grew up watching her mixing ingredients like honey, eggs and avocado, to make things which she would use on her skin and in the kitchen. I started making for family and friends, and it became a business almost by accident. When we relocated from Devon due to my husband’s job, I needed work that would fit around my children, as they both have particular needs, so I decided to do what I was already doing at home.

How did you develop the business?

There are a lot of natural skin care products around, but I found the prices meant they were inaccessible to a lot of people. It was important to me that I made good-quality products which were also affordable. I did research into the properties of different ingredients, and then it was trial and error until I was satisfied with the recipes. The products have all been assessed for safety, and I have a licence to make around 50.

What are the key ingredients?

Organic shea butter is the core ingredient. It’s been used for centuries, so it’s tried and tested. I source it from a women’s co-operative in West Ghana – it’s important to me that I know where my ingredients come from. I also use beeswax, calendula oil, rosebud oil and organic virgin coconut oil, and essential oils associated with relaxation, or which have anti-inflammatory properties, like lemongrass, rosemary and frankincense.

How do you go about making the products?

I weigh up the ingredients – I have to be very precise – and then they’re slowly melted and left to cool. When they reach the right consistency, the essential oils are added, and the creams are hand-whisked. I make a batch of between 12 and 20 tins at a time. It takes a minimum of 12 hours

12

from starting the process to putting the finished product in the tin.

Where do you sell your products?

Apart from online, I predominantly do farmers’ markets. I started with Sennen, which is where we live, and I also do the markets at St Ives and Chypraze Farm at Morvah. I like variety – you’re always meeting new people when you work in different locations. I’m my own boss, and I can make through the night if I need to. I’ve met a lot of women like me at farmers’ markets and craft fairs, who find that working 9 to 5 doesn’t give them the flexibility they need – women still do the lion’s share of the childcare. I also do events like Etsy Christmas fairs. I have a very loyal customer base: when people try my products, they stick to them, and they’re always amazed by how long a small tin lasts.

Have you any plans to expand Cornish Skin Food?

The business was profitable pretty much from the outset, but I want to remain small scale. I’m a one-woman show, and it works for me. I literally do everything myself – I hand-whisk, put the creams in the tins, and print my own labels. If I upscaled, I’d lose the artisan feel. My products are labelled as “made by hand in Mrs Lynch’s kitchen”, and my customers like that, so I wouldn’t want to move into an industrial unit. For more details, visit

Recipe: Honeycomb-filled chocolates INGREDIENTS

Butter (for the tin) 200g golden caster sugar 5 tbsp golden syrup 2 tsp bicarbonate of soda 150g dark or milk chocolate, broken into chunks

METHOD

Butter a 20cm square tin. Mix the sugar and golden syrup in a deep saucepan over a gentle heat until the sugar has melted. Try not to let the mixture bubble until the sugar has completely dissolved. Turn up the heat a little and simmer until you have an amber coloured caramel (this won’t take long). To test if it’s ready, turn off the heat and drop a little into a glass of very cold water. If it forms a hard ball, it’s ready. If not, turn the heat back on and cook a little more. Then, as quickly as you can, turn off the heat, tip in the bicarb, and beat with a wooden spoon until it has disappeared and the mixture is foaming. Scrape into the tin immediately – be careful, the mixture will be very hot.

Leave the honeycomb in the tin for one to one-and-a-half hours until hard (it will continue to bubble). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Melt the chocolate in a small heatproof bowl over a pan of just simmering water. Snap the honeycomb into chunks and stir into the chocolate. Pour into an ice cube tray or chocolate mould. Leave to set in the fridge for an hour.

Great line-up of chefs and musicians at Food and Drink Festival After a break of a year and four months, the St Ives Food and Drinks Festival is returning to its Porthminster Beach base from the 17th to 19th September. The event usually takes place in May, but was been rescheduled to September because of Covid. With the September Festival also taking place, it’s going to make for a busy town! Cooking at the event will be Emily Scott, who has just published her first Cornwall-themed cook book, Stephane Delourme and Pete Murt from the Rick Stein Group, Great British Menu finalist Jude Kereama, and award-winning author Steven Lamb, of River Cottage.

Friday night’s opening party welcomes Andy Quick and Freshly Squeezed to the stage. On Saturday night, the Roustabouts will urge everyone to get on their dancing shoes. They are followed by the London-based seven-piece Cable Street Collective. Both bands have spent the last year writing and recording new material while they get ready for festival season to return. On Sunday, Bailey Tomkinson will grace the stage for the last day of the festival. A singersongwriter from St Ives, she is part of the new wave of British country-influenced artists. Following Bailey, Leeds-based Howlin’ Ric & the Rocketeers will play vibrant and authentic rock and roll, roving from raucous rhythm and blues right through to dreamy popcorn love songs. Find out more and buy tickets at

stivesfoodanddrinkfestival.co.uk The outdoor Asado fire pit will take centre stage as the main demo area, with a full chef line-up cooking over fire all weekend. Sustainability is a passion among many of the chefs, and visitors will be treated to be an exploration of the best locally-sourced ingredients, cooked over fire, with the likes of Ross Geach, of Padstow Kitchen Garden, grow-your-own author Kathy Slack, and Michelin green star chef Jeffrey Robinson. Daytime content at the festival, including all the chefs’ demos, will be free all weekend. The evening sessions are ticketed and there will be a full music line-up.

St Ives Tennis Club: Game, set and match! September marks one year since St Ives Tennis Club became the first in Cornwall to introduce synthetic clay courts – and they have transformed the club! Membership has almost double since the red Roland Garros look came to the club, where stunning views of Porthminster Beach and St Ives Bay make it one of the most beautifully-sited in the country – if not the world? The £100,000 new courts project, jointly funded by Sport England’s Community Asset Fund, has seen membership of the club almost double from 90 to more than 170 in less than 12 months with many tennis-playing holidaymakers also hiring the courts to enjoy the Advantage RedCourt surface. The regeneration project – unveiled last September by Lawn Tennis Association president David Rawlinson – also included a junior mini-court hitting zone and a portable floodlight system, giving the club more playing and coaching time.

16 places quickly snapped up and a trio of junior coaches, Lulu Martin and Charlie and Tilly Eldridge (pictured), recruited to help Colin with the popular Wednesday morning sessions. The club, which has mix-in social tennis sessions on Sunday, Tuesday and Friday mornings and Wednesday evenings, is still accepting new members, whether they are potential Tennis Cornwall League players or enthusiastic newcomers. Membership, court booking and coaching details are online at

https://clubspark.lta.org.uk/StIvesTennisClub

To mark the arrival of the new courts, the club introduced free membership for children of primary school age and below – and Saturday is kids’ day at St Ives Tennis Club, with coach Colin Stringer running courses for youngsters of all ages. This year Colin also introduced summer holiday Kids Camp tennis sessions for five to 11-year-olds, running from 28th July to 1st September, with all

Property: Boom time for cash buyers We’ve all got used to paying by card for goods over the past 18 months ago, and yet there are many who still adhere to the old adage that “cash is king”. It appears, too, that this is true when it comes to buying property at the moment. James Greenwood, of Stacks Property Search, says: “If ever there was an ideal time to be a cash buyer, it would be now. The best position to be in as a buyer is to be unconfined by a property to sell. But the risks are high. If you had been out of the market for the last six months you would have seen prices rise by as much as 20%. But demand has been so strong, and supply constricted, that buyers’ offers that are subject to the sale of a property rarely make it into the running.” The speed with which some sales from upcountry buyers progress suggests that they are, indeed, cash buyers. And so prices continue to rise. A recent Matt cartoon from the Telegraph has an agent telling a house-hunting couple, outside a property they have viewed: “If you want

something more expensive, I can show you this again tomorrow.” • Tell us your property stories. Can’t buy? Can’t rent? Or had great service from a local agent? Email hello@stiveslocal.uk or comment on our social media (@stiveslocal on Facebook groups, Instagram, @St_Ives_Local on Twitter).

Support for young artists St Ives School of Painting has extended its provision for young people with an ambitious online programme.

The school stepped up its offering to the seven-to-18 age group in 2016 in response to the deficit in arts education and years of cuts to youth services — a situation now exacerbated by Covid. Led by youth arts manager, Cat Lee, the school offers three different projects for young people: a Kids Sunday Art Club, an Art Collective for teenagers, and a Culture Camp for young people at risk. The majority of the provision is free for young people to access, thanks to support from various funders, including The Wilhelmina Barns-Graham Trust, St Ives Rotary Club, the Roy Ray Legacy Fund, Little Parc Owles Trust, and the UK government’s Kickstarter Programme. Meanwhile, the Porthmeor Art Collective is a new online project focusing on contemporary art practices and ideas, led and taught by 18to 25-year-old emerging artists. Currently spearheaded by Caleb Richards, whose role is

part-funded by the Kickstarter scheme, this project is thought to be the only peer-to-peer initiative of its type in the UK. The hour-long sessions are free and the syllabus, designed by Caleb, covers topics including the roots and techniques of Manga, iconic album covers of the past decade, and New York graffiti in the 1980s. In October, the school will recommence its online Sunday Kids Art Club, with hour-long sessions suitable for whole families but specifically aimed at children between seven and 12. Find out more at

St Ives Archive: Hyman Segal – Caricaturist of cats and people I recently wrote an article entitled Tales from the Sloop, and while researching this subject I became interested in the lovely sketches created by Hyman Segal, many of which have adorned the walls of this historic St Ives pub for decades. I am not an artist, nor do I pretend to know anything about art – but I have now decided that Hyman Segal is my favourite artist of all time. Born in London in 1914, he first came to St Ives in 1946 on his return from serving in Africa in the Second World War. His initial sight of the town and harbour was from the Malakoff, and as he later stated in one of his books, it was love at first sight. It would appear that, unusually, Segal was accepted by both fellow artists and townsfolk. This is apparent from the hundreds of caricatures he drew of local people, and fishermen in particular. An

evacuee to the town during the Second World War once told me that he sketched her in her Aladdin pantomime costume after a performance at the Guildhall. He also sketched Abraham Curnow (Abram as he was known locally) several times: Abram was the town crier and road sweeper for many years. The artist was also brilliant at drawing cats – and, of course, there were plenty of cats around in St Ives in the 1950s and 60s. He could create a likeness with as few as seven strokes of a brush. Hyman Segal worked from a studio overlooking Porthmeor Beach, and became one of the most distinguished members of the St Ives art colony. He was a committee

member of the St Ives Society of Artists, and a founder member of the Penwith Society of Artists. I came across a quotation by a former editor of The Cornishman, who reflected on how “St Ives, both the arts colony and the people of the town, would be so much poorer without Hyman, who has done more than any other artist to present the people of St Ives to themselves”.

love these words: “St Ives still has to offer those with time and eyes that see, a hoard of treasure not for sale”. He he was right, of course – it most certainly has. Hyman Segal died at Edward Hain Hospital in 2004, at the age of 90.

Jan Harris

Garden Stories:

Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden For Barbara Hepworth, the discovery of the studio in St Ives where she was to live and work for more than 25 years was “a sort of magic”. “For 10 years I had passed by with my shopping bags, not knowing what lay behind the 20-foot wall,” the celebrated sculptor wrote, years later. “Here was a studio, a yard and garden where I could work in open air and space.” The studio at Trewyn was light, bright and airy; the yard a sunny spot where she could catch a glimpse of the sea while she worked; and the garden a haven from the bustle beyond the high wall. It was to become a great source of inspiration for Hepworth, and a showcase for her work. In her marble workshop at the edge of the garden, she would carve stone, and in the neighbouring room, she created plasters destined to be cast in bronze. A work in progress was often placed in one area of the garden and then moved around, so that she could contemplate it from a variety of angles and decide if more needed to be done. Hepworth had come to live in Cornwall with her husband, artist Ben Nicholson, and their

young family, following the outbreak of the Second World War. It was in 1949 that she discovered Trewyn. Mature trees and magnolias were already in residence there, and within this framework, Hepworth, a keen gardener, created a space where exotic plants like fan palms and bamboos could live

among the sculptures. As each piece was finished, she would plant specifically to complement it. The gnarled texture of the 1958 bronze, Garden Sculpture, was inspired by the texture of the old copper beech which stands behind it. A Fatsia japonica with giant waxy leaves overlooks a 1968 work, Six Forms, which is composed of similar shapes. This is also a garden of enchanting beauty and exquisite scents. In spring, the delicate blossom of a Japanese cherry decorates the lawn like confetti; in early summer, Hepworth’s beloved roses scent the air. During the years the sculptor lived at Trewyn, the garden was known only by a few of her close friends. For most people in St Ives, it remained a secret, just as it had been for Hepworth, in the days when she used to walk past on her way home from the shops. In her will, however, she expressed the hope that her home, studio and garden would be opened to the public as a permanent exhibition of her work and the environment in which it was created. After she died in a fire in 1975, Trewyn was given to the nation, and her family oversaw the creation of the Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden. The museum and garden came under the care of the Tate Gallery in London – along with much of the sculptures which remained there – and are now managed by Tate St Ives, which is less than five minutes’ walk away. Working in partnership with the family, the Tate’s aim has always been to preserve both studio and garden as they were when Hepworth lived there, and to maintain a real sense of her presence. Some of her most significant carvings and bronze sculptures are displayed in the way she intended. The largest pieces are on the lawn: Divided Circle, casts shadows on the lawn, and frames the smaller sculpture behind it, and Four-Square (Walk Through) is thought to have been inspired by the tower of St Ives Parish Church.

Several years after she came to Trewyn, Hepworth acquired land from her neighbour, another artist, and his studio became her greenhouse. She was a collector of cacti, and the plants – some now more than 100 years old – still thrive in the greenhouse. Robins have been known to nest there, and in the garden outside, regular visitors include not just seagulls, but also blackbirds, finches, bees, butterflies and hummingbird moths. Hepworth once described her work as an attempt “to infuse the formal perfection of geometry with the vital grace of nature”. The planting in the garden makes the most of the shadows as they move around during the day, and the lush foliage means that there is something to see all year round.

Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden is in Barnoon Hill, and is open daily from 10am to 5.20pm. Timed tickets are required for all visitors. For more information, see https://www.tate.org.uk/visit/tatest-ives/barbara-hepworth-museum-and-sculpture-garden Barbara Hepworth’s work can also be seen in the main displays at Tate St Ives alongside the works of her contemporaries.

Trevena Cross Nurseries: All hands on deck

Trevena Cross has continued to provide a safe place to visit through the summer, while inspiring new ideas for the garden, or complete garden transformations. There’s no doubt, though, that the last few months have been interesting. As the nurseries’ owner Graham Jeffery explains: “It has been a funny old time, in more ways than one. While continuing to navigate an enduring pandemic, our reliable source of comfort, the garden, has also been challenged, with the weather throwing curveballs in the form of frosts in April, and then very sudden scorching temperatures in July. “I don’t know where we’re going to be in September and October – but hopefully the relaxing of rules and the summer surge of visitors to the county won’t have caused great harm to Cornwall and its people, and the weather will have found its status quo again.” It may have been holiday season for most this past couple of months, but Trevena Cross has been ‘all

hands on deck’ preparing for autumn. The team have been growing, potting on and nurturing a huge range of fresh stock, from fabulous packs of home-grown bedding in the form of pansies, violas and cyclamen, to a great range of shrubs, ornamental trees, fruit trees, soft fruit bushes, and new batches of robust hedging plants. Often considered the season for the true gardener, it’s the time when perfect planting conditions are usually met – autumn showers moistening the still warm summer soil and giving the root system of plants time to establish before winter dormancy. Spring flowering bulbs are also in and already flying out. Plan fast and act quickly to make next year’s magnificent daffodil display or tulip show a reality. Before the over-excitement of new planting sets in, though, do not forget to have a good tidy up and ‘set the scene’. Dig over the soil of any fresh beds and borders and give them a good feed. Improve the soil structure with organic matter where necessary, to give new plantings the best possible chance of early establishment. Clear debris and any leaves when they start to fall, too – small piles of undisturbed, appropriately positioned leaves will provide the perfect hide-out for wildlife like insects and hedgehogs! Give hedges and fruit trees a prune, and ensure you have safe structures, decent windbreaks and shelter for the garden in preparation for the winter months ahead. If you need any planting advice this autumn, Trevena Cross is the perfect port of call. The nurseries’ friendly plant experts are growers themselves – of more than 90% of the plants you’ll see on a visit – and they’re always on hand to help. Plus, if you pop by for in-person advice, you’ll have a great excuse to stop by the Garden Kitchen Café for a cuppa, irresistible sweet treat, or a spot of lunch!

Book Review by Alice Harandon, manager of St Ives Bookseller

The Man who Died Twice by Richard Osman £18.99 Viking

The second in the Thursday Murder Club series. It’s the Thursday after the events of the first book, and Elizabeth has received a letter from an old colleague who needs her help. His story involves stolen diamonds, a violent mobster, and a threat to his life. As bodies start piling up, Elizabeth enlists the rest of the gang in the hunt for a ruthless murderer. And if they find the diamonds too? Well, wouldn’t that be a bonus?

Matrix by Lauren Groff

£16.99, William Heinemann

Deemed too coarse and wild for 12th-century courtly life, Marie de France is cast from the royal court by Eleanor of Aquitaine. To her dismay, she is sent to the muddy fields of Angleterre, to become prioress of an impoverished abbey on the brink of starvation and rife with gossip. Marie pines for the decadence and comfort of French court life, but soon realises that, although she is tied to a life of duty, she wields more power than she could have imagined. For a book about a 12th century nun, this is an unusually gripping and beautifully written tale!

There’s a Ghost in this House by Oliver Jeffers £20, HarperCollins

A young girl lives in a haunted house, but she has never seen a ghost. Are they white with holes for eyes? Are they hard to see? She’d love to know!

40

Step inside and turn the transparent pages to help her on an entertaining ghost hunt, from behind the sofa, right up to the attic. With lots of friendly ghost surprises and incredible mixed media illustrations, this unique and funny book will entertain young readers over and over again!

Silverview by John le Carre £20, Viking (published 14th October)

The last completed manuscript from the master of the spy thriller. Julian Lawndsley has renounced his high-flying job in the City for a simpler life running a bookshop in a small English seaside town. But only a couple of months into his new career, Julian’s evening is disrupted by a visitor. Edward, a Polish emigre living in Silverview, the big house on the edge of town, seems to know a lot about Julian’s family and is rather too interested in the inner workings of his modest new enterprise. When a letter turns up at the door of a spy chief in London warning him of a dangerous leak, the investigations lead him to this quiet town by the sea…

The Prince of the Skies by Antonio Iturbe

£16.99, Macmillan (published 14th October)

In the 1920s, long before he wrote The Little Prince, Antoine de Saint-Exupery was an accomplished pilot. He was one of those chosen to pioneer new mail routes across the globe. No distance was too far and no mountain too high – each letter had to reach its destination. Three friends soar through the air, while back on solid ground, they deal with a world torn apart by wars and political factions. Based on a true story, this is a moving tale of love and friendship, war and heroism, flight and the power of the written word.

Travel: A voyage back to adventure by Jo and Paul Mooney of Stunning Escapes We would like to share with you our first real travel adventure in a very long time. Cabin fever really hit me hard in June of this year (writes Jo). Cornwall was becoming busy, we were still home schooling on and off, and dealing with the relentless task of cancelling and rebooking our lovely clients’ holidays. Skimming my emails one evening, I saw a photo of a magnificent sailing ship which was being brought to the UK for some special voyages around our glorious coastline. Being Cornish, I have an affinity with the sea, and spending time on any type of vessel is one of my favourite ways to relax. They had a solo cabin available on a July sailing for four nights, at a price far less than a stay in a hotel on land! Within 48 hours, I had confirmed babysitters, dog and cat sitters, and extra team cover for our business. Golden Horizon is the world’s largest square-rigged vessel. Over 70% of her voyages will be with sail power alone, and she will follow the sun to some of the world’s most incredible destinations. The ship visited both Fowey and Falmouth a few days before I boarded at Dover. On the day she sailed into Falmouth, there was a heavy mist, and she suddenly appeared like a ghost ship! My excitement level was at fever pitch by the time I parked up in Dover, although there was a nervous wait of around 30 minutes as my lateral flow test had to be processed before I could board. The crew were so welcoming, and delighted to have people on this brand new ship. A glass of champagne was placed in my hand, and I was escorted to my ocean-facing cabin. It was luxurious and spacious, with décor based on that of a 1913 ship.

the ship had to offer. The age mix of the passengers was very broad, and there were a handful of other solo travellers. Everyone was full of anticipation and joy at being on board Golden Horizon. This was only her second voyage, and we had a teething issue which delayed our departure, but it didn’t impact on the first night dinner and the live music and dancing which followed. The next morning, there was a spectacular sunrise, and the white cliffs of Dover glimmered above us. We sailed that afternoon. The huge sails were slowly lowered as we listened to spine-tingling music, specially written for the occasion. We watched in awe as the ship transformed before our eyes, and the wind started to catch her sails. We had perfect weather for our voyage, sailing to Torquay and the Isle of Wight, with a couple of days at sea, exploring the coast. The food was stunning, the entertainment perfect, and the ambience relaxed. The afternoons were spent sunbathing on deck or swimming in the pool. The ship only has 130 cabins, so it’s a relatively intimate sailing experience, but with the bonus of great facilities. I can’t wait to sail on Golden Horizon again – I have my eyes on an Indian Ocean itinerary, and perhaps Croatia as well. I am so delighted that I tried something new, as this was one of the most memorable trips I have ever been on. Best wishes

Paul and Jo x

I joined my fellow passengers for afternoon tea in the piano bar, where we were briefed on everything

Plastic Free St Ives:

A threat to waterways and wildlife by Emma Fashokun, Cornish Gems Guest Experience and Corporate Social Responsibility Manager This summer we have seen the welcome return of festivals and other events. After such a long hiatus, this has been good news for venues, performers and music lovers everywhere. Missing last year was the annual celebration of visual arts, music and theatre that is St Ives September Festival. While we want everyone to enjoy the festival events in and around St Ives, we also call on the organisers of events to be mindful of the large amount of single use plastics that get used and discarded. Many festivals have joined in the fight against unnecessary disposable plastic use, including the UK’s largest concert promoter, Live Nation, which says it will eliminate single use plastics at its events and festivals. Glastonbury has banned single use plastic bottle sales, and many smaller venues and providers have followed suit. One of the largest uses of avoidable plastic at events like our September Festival is in the cable ties used to attach advertisements for festivities to railings and lamp posts throughout the town. We have found increasing numbers of them during our beach cleans, and they also litter the pavements and drains.

Not only are these cable ties inevitably destined to pollute our waterways, they also pose a huge risk to our marine wildlife. Conservation groups such as the Cornwall Seal Group Research Trust report that when plastic ties get stuck around baby seals’ necks, because they don’t rot or degrade they cause distress and injury as the seal grows. For more about this, see www.cornwallsealgroup.co.uk Please promote your events using biodegradable string as a sustainable alternative. Support businesses that use plastic free alternatives to food trays, drinks cups and bottles. Look out for the plastic-free champions in St Ives who have pledged to reduce their single use plastic provision. Refuse the plastic straw! If you need or prefer to sip those cocktails through a straw, please take your own reusable version. Finally, for those glamorous party goers who can’t do without their glitter face paints, why not avoid the microplastics and opt for a plant cellulose eco alternative?
