St Minver Church Fete Raises £4,000

The Rev Elizabeth Wild opened the Church Fete in August which is held on the Cricket Field by kind permission of the Cricket Club. It was a happy occasion of family fun. Bargains were there to be snapped up at the stalls and local produce and plants to be bought. Tea and home made cakes were served at the Perceval Institute. The BBQ, which was supplied and operated by the Pityme Inn, was very popular. The Cricket Club opened their bar. The afternoon was made complete by the musical entertainment of the St Minver Silver Band. A good time appeared to be had by all, including the ex-prime Minister and his family, and a sum of £4,000 was raised to help maintain the three lovely Churches in this parish. Many thanks to so many people who help make this event happen and not least to Brian Gisbourne, the Fete co-ordinator, who worked so hard before, during and after the Fete. A special thanks this year is due to Allan Solley, who remade our ‘Orange Bomber’ (the old one being beyond repair!). Dawn Lawrence 16 Issue 211.indd 16

Trebetherick & Polzeath Womens Institute Closes

Our local WI has closed. Diminishing membership, difficulties in filling vacant positions on the committee and an ever increasing membership fee are the main reasons. During their many years of operation the WI have accrued a sum of money, thought to be substantial, that will now be held in suspension for three years in accordance with the WI constitution. If another WI is formed in the area within three years, it can claim this fund. If not the money will be absorbed by the National WI. Polzeath WI was founded in 1933 and Trebetherick WI in 1954. The two merged to form Trebetherick and Polzeath in 2007 (See Link 153, March/April 2007, page 45). It is sad that the parish will no longer be able to benefit from the various charity fund raising events that the WI organised including the WI Christmas Fair - a popular event enjoyed by many, particularly children. WI President, Pam Curtis, said. “It’s very sad. We leave Trebetherick and Polzeath WI with a host of very fond memories of fun, laughter, milestone events, care in the community and lifelong friendships forged over 62 years.” Someone reading this may like to have a go and start a new WI group?

Link Editor Resigns

Kerensa Beer-Robson has resigned as editor of Link. Kerensa said that, sadly, she just does not have the time now to do Link justice because she is studying for a degree as well as meeting a host of family and other committments. Kerensa joined the Link committee about eight years ago and was appointed editor 2013. The Link Committee thank Kerensa for her work on Link and wish her every success for the future and good luck with her degree.

Treasurer Needed

The Friends of St Minver’s Churches are struggling to find someone willing to take over as Treasurer on our Trustees Committee. If you think you might be interested in finding out more about us or the vacancy, please call Brian Gisbourne ( Chairman) 869315 or Dawn Lawrence ( Secretary) 869084, we would love to hear from you.

St Minver Probus Club Our speaker at our September meeting, Sarah Stevens - a National Trust Ranger, was described by two members as ‘fantastic. The talk by was not fantasy at all and a large number of really interesting facts about bats, most eloquently presented. Sarah claimed to be “no expert”, but a few minutes proved her wrong! This was one real expert, at least compared to her audience, which is what mattered today. She kept us enthralled from beginning to end, and if you asked me how long she spoke for, I would have no idea. We learnt (among many other things) that bats were contemporary with the dinosaurs (which, fortunately for us humans, did not survive!), that among 1,200 species world-wide, 18 are resident in to the UK. One species consists of one lonely male awaiting a mate from the continent. (60 million years, and they still haven’t got internet dating) Cornwall’s climate (you know, warm and rather wet) is ideal, so bats are prolific here. Did you know that they are the only flying mammal? That they can see perfectly well, but are active at night because insects, their food-source, are about after dark because they prefer not to tangle with swallows, who hunt the same food. That the Brown Long-eared Bat hunts using a hearing system so acute that he can hear a moth flapping its wings. And they have developed a personalised echo-location system that we humans can only dream of. (but then, we have only been going for a few thousand years) Bats give birth to one very heavy ‘pup ‘ a year. Pups stay in a crèche while their parents eat out and some precocious species mate during their first year. They echo-locate using a frequency just above our range, but apparently some young children can hear them. Their calls can be extremely loud (130 decibells), but to protect their super-acute hearing they can switch off their ears when performing. (now that would be a useful trick) However, we humans are ahead of them in one respect – we have invented a machine that reduces the frequency of their calls, so we can actually hear them! Sadly, bats have not yet developed a cat-avoidance system (so please keep your cat in at night), and indeed we heard of many other dangers they face that are not obvious to us underevolved humans (for example, sticky fly-paper!). Some species have declined by 90 per cent in recent years (due to intensive agriculture and development). Bats are very useful in controlling insects and their roosts are protected by law. These can be in unexpected places, such as cracks in trees, and surprisingly small, as pipistrelle bats, with wings closed, are the size of a match-box.

St Enodoc Golf Club

It has been a busy time at St Enodoc Golf Club, September is always popular with members and visitors alike. The Ernie Goodman Trophy is played each September over 36 holes with the Goodman Trophy presented for the best nett score and the Rachel Biddle Trophy awarded for the best gross of the day. It is an Order of Merit even for the Cornwall Golf Union and several of the County Stars were on hand. Matt Richards from West Cornwall, Josh Greenaway from Bowood, Rob McGregor from Tehidy Park and Conor Wilson from Perranporth were in the mix. At the end of play on a very long day, the winner was Ben Castillo-Bernaus from Sunningdale with a nett score of 140. The winner of the Rachel Biddle Trophy with a combined gross score of 147 was Rob MacGregor, winning on countback over Conor Wilson. September is also the time for the Club Championships which were held on September 17th and 18th. 72 men played on Saturday in the 18-hole medal that comprised the Woodcote Park Cup for best nett score as well as the first round of the Magor Gold Medal, which is the Club Championship 36-hole medal played off scratch. Some very good scores were returned and the winner was Keith Thompson with a fine nett 65. In second place was Colin Reynolds with 68 and in third was Steve Buse on 69. Joe Cruse had the best gross score on Saturday with a level-par 69. 20 players returned on Sunday morning to complete the Magor Gold Medal and to try to improve on their Saturday efforts for best 36-hole nett score as well.

prizes with a gross 143. Joe’s efforts were good enough to win him the best nett prize as well in a countback over Colin Reynolds, nett score for 36 holes of 142. The Ladies also played a 36 Hole Medal over the two days for the Ladies Championship Cup. The best Gross Score and Ladies Club Champion was Kath Biddle with a score of 176 ahead of Suzie Willmott who was runner up with a gross score of 179. The best Nett score and winner of the Centenary Trophy was Bev Vann with a nett score of 157. Pauline Meredith and Trudy Tremain were presented with the Barbara Wills Trophy for improving their rounds by 8 shots from round 1 to round 2. Always keen for golf, whatever the weather the Ladies also hosted their Ladies Open on Tuesday 13th September. Despite heavy rain in the morning, 29 teams of 3 ladies turned up to participate in the Ladies Open competition. Whilst the first teams out had to contend with the heavy rain for the first few holes, the weather finally cleared to provide better conditions for the later tee times. One of the first teams out managed to post a good score despite the weather but then had a long wait to see if they could hold on to their lead. As it happened, a later team did come in with the same score but the early birds managed to hold out with a better back nine and a well deserved win! The winners were from Perranporth – Hilary Pryor, Niki Wraight & Vicky Lee-Comyn with 74 points (back nine 38). To finish off the month, the ever popular Open Mixed Greensomes was played on the final Sunday. 120 pairs from around the country entered the competition and enjoyed what turned out to be a dry but windy day. The winners were Brian & Yvonne Medlam from Saunton Sands Golf Club with 34 points. Nicola Reader

This along with the dyslexia must have made her life very hard. But Kate always remained upbeat and cheerful. Not long after her beloved Granny Grigg died in 1990 she met Alan and as Howard says the sun came out. They formed a unique relationship and became soul mates. A while later she moved in with him at Trewiston Farm where he worked and lived. She loved it there and was often seen chatting to the campers and Caravaners.

Just after Zoe started in Plymouth she met Jacob and they became engaged in January this year. Kate was a special person and touched so many people`s lives.We will be sad, we will weep and get angry but none of this will bring her back. She packed more into her 45 years than most of us will in a lifetime. She was a natural, and treated all alike with a cheerful smile and something to make us laugh. She was a positive person and would want us to be the same. What we do have is the memories, her energy, laughter and quick wit. She will never be gone. She will remain in our hearts and minds forever. Howard and I were proud and honoured to have been chosen as her parents. May she rest in peace and rise in glory.

He was earthenware, stoneware and porcelain making loads of pots for Dartington. He with many of the designs and decorations was supplying porcelain to their gallery and honey pots for the cider press.

It was a great introduction to the importance of precision and functionality in the making of pots.” “I always thought being a potter would be a way to be more connected with the 28 Issue 211.indd 28

A recent development is that we have been awarded an Arts Council grant to build a tube kiln at Kigbeare in Devon and there will be a group of us creating pots there. It’s exciting.” “It’s a big learning curve every time I try to create something new because you never know how it’s going to come out. But what I love about throwing pots is that you have to concentrate fully on what you’re doing and everything else goes away. I just want to make pots that’s people take pleasure from. They can just put them on their shelves to look at but I’d rather they used them.” You can find Deborah’s pots at the Hawksfield site opposite the Cornwall Showground, both in the Circle Gallery and The Arc.

Fitness Tips from Charlie Francis Charlie is a certified personal trainer, exercise and nutrition specialist and Health Club Manager at The Point at Polzeath. She aspires to help others improve their lives through fitness and nutrition, believing that with the correct knowledge and support, anything is possible. You can improve your body and become a much happier, healthier person in the process. In Cornwall, we have the most beautiful coast line to explore, there is no excuse to not get out for a walk. Walking is the best gentle, low-impact exercise which is free and available to everyone.

1. Walking strengthens your heart

Reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke by walking regularly. It’s great cardio exercise, lowering levels of LDL (bad) cholesterol while increasing levels of HDL (good) cholesterol. The Stroke Association says that a brisk 30-minute walk every day helps to prevent and control the high blood pressure that causes strokes, reducing the risk by up to 27%.

2. Walking lowers disease risk

A regular walking habit Slashes the risk of type 2 diabetes by around 60 %, and you are 20 % less likely to develop cancer of the colon, breast or womb with an active hobby such as

walking.

3. Walking helps you lose weight You’ll burn around 75 calories simply by walking at 2 mph for 30 minutes. Up your speed to 3 mph and it’s 99 calories, while 4 mph is 150 calories (equivalent to three Jaffa cakes and a jam doughnut!).

4. Walking prevents dementia Older people who walk six miles or more per week are more likely to avoid brain shrinkage and preserve memory as the years pass. Dementia affects one in 14 people over 65 and one in six over 80.

5. Walking tones up legs, bums and tums Give definition to calves, quads and hamstrings while lifting your glutes (bum muscles) with a good, regular walk. Add hill walking into the mix and it’s even more effective. Pay attention to your posture and you’ll also tone your abs and waist.

6. Walking boosts vitamin D

We all need to get outside more. Many people in the UK are vitamin D deficient, affecting important things like bone health and our immune systems. Walking is the perfect way to enjoy the outdoors while getting your vitamin D fix.

7. Walking gives you energy

You’ll get more done with more energy, and a brisk walk is one of the best natural energisers around. It boosts circulation and increases oxygen supply to every cell in your body, helping you to feel more alert and alive.

8. Walking makes you happy

It’s true! Exercise boosts your mood. Studies show that a brisk walk is just as effective as antidepressants in mild to moderate cases of depression, releasing feel-good endorphins while reducing stress and anxiety. So for positive mental health, walking’s an absolute must. 33

Jess Memorial Surf Contest held in 6 foot waves

This year’s Jess Memorial Surf Contest went ahead this year in spite of solid 6 foot plus waves. Brave surfers battled the challenging conditions to pull off yet another fantastic contest with all funds raised going to fund a helpline for Payprus, the teenage suicide prevention charity. Organisers Pam and Allen Solley would like to thank Rob Harris for the use of Tristram car park, Jamie Yoki for the use of the Sandbar and for providing some super food and Lhry Faragher for providing safety cover. Although too many to mention they also wish to extend thanks to all the local businesses that sponsor the event with prizes and all the judges and helpers on the day. Lastly, a big thank you goes to all of the contestants without which the competition couldn’t go ahead. For the results see page 53.

Country Diary from Cobb Cottage

Written and Illustrated by Joan Cockett Autumn is the period from the Autumnal Equinox to the Winter Solstice, but for most of us it is the time when the first bonfire smoke drifts across the gardens and memories are stirred. I love Autumn. The lower angle of the sun transforms the garden to a magical gold, leaf crackles underfoot, windfall apples attract the

wasps and the sun is still warm but not burning. Here in Daymer it is the quietness too as the lane and the beach return to a normal calm. It is easy to sit and engulf oneself in all this beauty, a transient time before winter. Looking around the garden, I am remembering the plants that have made an impact this year. An echium selfseeded in the wall between Cobb and St Enodoc Cottages, and given its 4ft (1.2m) start, has grown to an enormous height of about 20ft (6m). It has produced a spire of blue flowers, furiously buzzing with bees. 48 Issue 211.indd 48

We welcome local stories and photographs. 19/10/2016 11:04:05


Now dead, it is still an imposing presence and scattering seed for the gardens and the birds. A geranium maderense (as seen at the Eden Project) in a pot near the cottage wall produced a very impressive number of cerise flowers from its trunklike stem. They lasted for weeks. It is a difficult plant to draw -I have tried to

from slugs and snails who love its fleshy leaves. A young friend took some photographs, and managed a picture of a cabbage-white butterfly on the flowerlike head. When the plant dies back, white violets appear - two plants for the price of one!! Several of my most interesting plants have been acquired by garden visiting: a fuchsia with lime-green leaves and purple and red flowers has now become a handsome plant from its 60p start at Melingey Mill . A vibrant mix of honeysuckle potato vine and rosa rugosa looks colourful. The hips on the rose are a spectacular red and as large as small tomatoes. Elsewhere, the handsome grey leaved plant, Melianthus, makes an impact - not least with its peanut butter smell when the leaves are crushed. So we go gradually into Winter, by the time this appears in Link, it will be November. Enjoy the sunny days we will undoubtedly get, through the remaining days of the Winter: Spring comes early in Cornwall. If you haven’t planted those bulbs yet - do it now!.

convey its ‘fireworks’ quality. It was huge, and has generously seeded into another pot, providing a healthy future plant. About two years ago I went with a friend to a garden in Withiel, in a lovely, romantic setting, where they had some interesting plants for sale. I acquired a Eucomis Bicolour for £3 and have grown it in a large pot in a sheltered patio area. It is related to the pineapple, as you can see from my drawing; its height is about 18 inches (45cm). It does need protection Visit our website - www.stminverlink.org Issue 211.indd 49

A Book Review by John Baxter

Doom Watch by David Burnell

Published by CC 1 Paperback £7.99 from Wadebridge Bookshop The familiar picture on the cover of this ‘Cornish Conundrum’, overlooking St Enodoc Church, the 11th green on the Golf Course, and the Camel Estuary towards Stepper Point, might have been even more explicit. It is intended to reveal the site of the Doom Bar, the sandbank below the surface in the estuary. There are days when this infamous hazard is clearly identifiable. ‘Doom Watch’, published in 2013 and set in North Cornwall in 2008, is written by a retired holiday-cottage owner in the area, whose eclectic career included work in the water industry, followed by a PhD on ‘the deeper meaning of data from London’s water meters’ .It is clear from much of the action in this book that David Burnell makes effective use of this experience. Before the story even begins the reader should absorb some different font text next to a simple sketch of the Camel Estuary. Six chapters pass before the font appears again, which appears to bear no relation either to the original piece or to the story at that stage. By the end of the book three more have emerged, each as an introduction to a new chapter, and none adding any clarity to the outcome of the plot until the very end. The action begins in Stepper Point Lookout with a rather unsatisfactory ‘false alarm’, continues in Trewarmett Inn 50 Issue 211.indd 50

where a stag party prepares to take the groom-to-be to a remote Engine House, and proceeds to Padstow where George (Georgina) Gilbert is seeking the residence of her uncle-in-law, Bill. The discovery of a human torso in a pool near the Engine House prompts the introduction of local Police Sergeant, Peter Travers, Delabole GP, Dr Brian Southgate, and, briefly, Detective Inspector Marcus Chadwick of the Southwest Regional Crime Squad based in Exeter. All these characters, as well as others, are to play a major part in the unravelling of the story, but already

a major weakness of the novel has emerged. Good fiction writing requires the writer to paint such vivid pictures of the characters that the reader can visualise them, identify them, and retain those pictures even when the characters are not in the immediate action. ‘Doom Watch’ moves in an almost unbroken narrative, guided by slightly bland characters at a reasonable pace. The second weakness concerns the purpose of George’s stay in Padstow. A recent widow, she has been invited to assist a newly formed group with strategic planning. George, an industrial mathematician with a Cambridge degree, as is David Burnell, joins the Padstow/ Rock Active Modernisation Committee. The core goal of PRAM is to take active steps to ‘expand the area’s significance in the tourist world’. It seems extraordinary that throughout the extensive contributions by local members of the group that no acknowledgement is made of ‘Padstein’. The author makes it quite clear in the Frontispiece that although the book is set in a real location it is entirely a work of fiction. Nevertheless, given that the Eden Project is cited as an example of a successful innovation one would have thought that the contribution of The Seafood Restaurant towards the popularity of Padstow might at least have merited a mention. Despite these reservations there is much to entertain in this imaginative conundrum. The plots intertwine cleverly, if highly improbably, although the existence of PRAM is absurd. The author acknowledges in his Notes at the end that ‘any such action would be a waste of time’. It does, however, provide the analyst with an opportunity to discover a

critical element of the main plot, a tube on the wreck of SS Antoinette, which was wrecked on the Doom Bar in 1895. This bizarre device is apparently responsible for the emergence of leaks from the holiday house of a major politician, the thinly disguised former Prime Minister, David Cameron, who has stayed with his family at the bottom of Daymer Lane, in Trebetherick, for many years. The suggestion that a small recorder with a short range UHF radio, imaginatively but unconvincingly hidden, could reveal discussions on matters such as immigration policy beggars belief. The search for the identity of the torso in the pool is intelligently tied to the other plots, and its success is attributed to the resourcefulness of the major characters, George Gilbert and Sergeant Peter Travers, aided by Delabole GP, Dr Southgate. Despite their considerable involvement there is little vitality in their personalities. The analyst’s flashes of inspiration are shrouded in horrors of painstaking data-seeking, the Police Sergeant, damned with faint praise by his superiors in Exeter and dismissed as a ‘country plod’ by another, and the willing Dr Southgate, barely emerge with the intelligibility their efforts deserve. At the end of the book the sequel, ‘Slate Expectations’, is ‘trailed’. The analyst George and Police Sergeant Travers feature again and it is hoped that their natures will emerge with more flesh. It is hoped, also, that minor irritations will disappear. The substitution of the impersonal ‘that’ for ‘who’ and the careless gender description of George as ‘he’, were irksome in an otherwise accurately written, and locally entertaining, read.

Gardening made easy by Nick Bacon

The Herbaceous Border Traditionally a herbaceous border was at least 3 metres (10 feet) wide and about 10 metres (33 feet) long and backed by an evergreen hedge. It was normally planted entirely with herbaceous perennials. This is not practical today as herbaceous borders tend to be much smaller and of irregular shapes to give more interest.

When and how should I plant herbaceous plants?

Lime may also be needed if the soil is very acid, a simple soil test will determine the pH of your soil. Lime is applied in autumn or spring one month before planting or adding humus forming matter, or two or three months after manuring, lime and manure must never be applied at the same time.

Parliamentary Update from Scott Mann MP Taiwan

Redwings Sanctuary

During the conference recess I travelled to Taiwan with a group of MPs to meet with ministers to discuss how we can strengthen trade ties between Taiwan and the UK. We were joined on the trip by Greg Hands, Minister for International Trade. As guests of the Taiwanese Government who organised the trip, it was a great opportunity for me to represent both North Cornwall and the Duchy abroad to promote the fantastic produce that we make in the county, particularly our food and drink sector. Some of the fish and shellfish that we land in Cornwall is very popular abroad, and I hope this trip will be a catalyst for selling more of our goods to Taiwan and other countries, particularly our most popular food and drink like pasties, fudge, chocolate, cider, wine and ale. It’s also important that we advertise Cornwall abroad as a holiday destination, and its profile has certainly been raised around the world through programmes like Poldark and Doc Martin.

Before my trip, I went out on to Bodmin Moor with the Redwings Horse Sanctuary to process over 160 wild ponies for passporting and microchipping. The Bodmin Moor Commons Council, RSPCA, Animal & Plant Health Agency, and trustees from the Elise Pilkington Charitable Trust - who funded the operation - were also present to make sure ponies can be chipped and tracked to ensure their welfare.

Code to enhance the provision of both landline and mobile broadband. The USO is expected to be 10Mbps which would be a minimum statutory requirement for broadband customers. I highlighted the current situation in North Cornwall where customers are paying for 10Mbps but only getting something along the lines of 0.5Mbps, which is simply unacceptable. The new Code will also change the way service providers can enhance their delivery of broadband, with mobile companies being given more freedom to modify their masts so they can boost their range or upgrade them to 3G and 4G internet.

Neighbourhood Development Plan Independent Examination Completed Over recent months, the reporting of progress on the St Minver Parishes’ NDP has been very limited. This is not due to any lack of effort by the NDP Steering Group, but due to circumstances related to the External Examiner and a Judicial Review of aspects of the St Ives NDP that could have impact on the St Minver Parishes NDP. The combination of these issues has made it virtually impossible to show progress or predict the future programme for completion of the St Minver Parishes’ NDP. With the St Ives NDP Judicial Review being held in early October, and an Independent Examination of the St Minver Parishes’ NDP completed the picture is now becoming a little clearer. The Examiner’s

determines to make its own. It seems sensible to await the outcome of the St Ives judicial review as this relates to the same matter of Principle Residence. As a result it is now anticipated that the Referendum is most likely to take place early in 2017.

report includes a number of recommendations for clarification of the NDP and concludes with the statement “I consider that it is appropriate that the draft NDP as modified by my recommendations proceed to a referendum and recommend that it does so, the referendum area being the combined parishes of St Minver Highlands and St Minver Lowlands.”

Whilst it is disappointing that further delays have been encountered, the completion of Independent Examination is a very significant milestone and adds weight to the consideration that has to be given to the emerging NDP in future planning decisions as a material consideration (including NDP policies relating to Development Areas).

The Steering Group is now working with Cornwall Council to address the Examiner’s recommendations and determine how the Plan should be amended in the light of them. Whilst this should not be a long process it may necessitate a further period of consultation if the recommended modifications are varied or Cornwall Council

Progress on the Referendum and any other issues related to the NDP will be posted on the St Minver Parish Councils’ website http://www.stminvercouncils. org.uk/ndp.html and included in future Link articles.
