2017 Kernewek Lowender executive officer’s welcome A

s the latest and youngest in the executive officer’s seat, I have been overwhelmed with the support and encouragement I have received from our community. My involvement in the festival stretches back to the age of 5 when I participated in piskey and fairy games, and the maypole dancing. I also completed work experience at the 2011 festival. In 2013, I was the inaugural ambassador winner and am now giving my all to the EO role. The focus this year is to honour our Cornish heritage as well as refresh the energy behind the festival and boost local community support and participation. We have a record number of associated activities, something which is really exciting for the festival, as well as many groups and

organisations assisting at official events. It’s fantastic to see the community embrace the need to renew, refresh and revitalise the Kernewek Lowender. This year’s program contains something for everyone from a street parade to pasty bake-off, maypole and furry dancing, markets and entertainment to dinners, historical tours, art and craft exhibitions, and Cornish language lessons. There will be plenty of opportunities to see what life was like when the Copper Coast was first settled by our Cornish ancestors with locals dressing in Cornish attire and various events following the theme. We are looking forward to welcoming huge crowd numbers from far and wide to our region to celebrate South Australia’s significant Cornish and mining heritage.

The first festival was held in 1973 and we are proud to continue the celebrations in 2017. There is an exciting buzz around the region in the lead-up to the festival, which is shaping up to be an experience filled with plenty of traditional and exciting new events. I hope you enjoy the 2017 Kernewek Lowender, this festival really is a testament to the community and the hard work which goes into putting such a fabulous event together. Thank you for your support, go grab a pasty, a ginger beer and keep your souvenir guide and official program of events handy while you embrace everything this year’s Cornish festival has to offer.

T

he Classic Cavalcade of Cars and Motorcycles is always a highlight of the Kernewek Lowender and, for the past decade, the thousands of entries have been coordinated by committee chairperson Claire Bettess. Claire and her partner Allan Pitchers are both car enthusiasts. Once she moved off the farm and into Kadina, Claire thought helping run the cavalcade would be a great way to give back to the community. She organises all the entries, a daily job for months leading up to the festival, and handles the bulk of enquiries from the public. Claire also keeps the extensive records, secures judges and supplies entrants with everything they need to participate. She can always be found at the Viterra marshalling yards on the Sunday morning of the Kernewek Lowender, welcoming drivers and their passengers whilst ensuring they receive their breakfast menus and plaques. The vehicles range from historical wooden wheelers to more modern muscle cars up to 1985 models, which proceed through Wallaroo to Moonta, Moonta Bay and Port Hughes before travelling back to the Kadina oval. Although the cavalcade was a somewhat controversial addition to the Kernewek Lowender initially, not being strictly related to Cornish culture, it has been hugely popular. “I received our first entry for the 2017

cavalcade last July, and had more than 40 entries by the start of the year,” Claire said. “We don’t even start posting out until February! “This just goes to show it’s a very keenly-followed event and people love it. “Those with older cars particularly appreciate the flat run which is easier on their vehicles.” More than 500 vehicles joined the last cavalcade, all ending up at the fun fair on Kadina oval which has grown to incorporate a rock ‘n’ roll show plus food and merchandise stalls, souvenirs and more. Claire acknowledged other key players who have helped run the cavalcade during her time — Bill Clarke, David and Tom Rosewarne from the event’s major sponsor Rosewarne’s RAA, and former committee member Brian Harris. “We all have our own roles and work together extremely well,” she said. Claire is particularly busy during the week of the Kernewek Lowender, taking phone calls and providing lastminute information to entrants from outside Yorke Peninsula. But she endeavours to participate in various other activities and believes the festival is fantastic for the region. “The Kernewek Lowender is a wonderful community and family event that showcases our area and heritage,” Claire said. The 2017 RAA Rosewarnes Classic Cavalcade of Cars and Motorcycles is on Sunday, May 21.

Claire Bettess, with an immaculate 1936 Vauxhall coupe, chairs the committee for the Classic Cavalcade of Cars and Motorcycles.

Grand Bard coming to town Rhiannon Koch

Grand Bard of the Cornish Gorsedh Merv Davey is looking forward to attending this year’s Kernewek Lowender.

ERV Davey has entertained the Queen and in his spare time plays in a family ceilidh band but is looking forward to attending his first Kernewek Lowender. “I’ve visited the Cornish cousins in America but I’ve never been to Australia, despite having several generations of relations here” he said. “I am looking forward to being part of the Australian Cornish community, if only for the few days of the festival! After being elected Deputy Grand Bard in 2013, Merv was appointed the Grand Bard of the Cornish Gorsedh in September 2015. “I was made a Bard in 1978 for my services to Cornwall and after examination in the Cornish language. “I took the name Telynor n Weryn (Folk Harper). In 1983, I became an honorary piper to the Cornish Gorsedh.” The Grand Bard is responsible for chairing meetings and being involved with

working parties, is the spokesperson for Cornwall and the Cornish Gorsedh at civic occasions, and leads ceremonies. “The administrative part sounds a little mundane but there is some interesting and exciting work going on to promote Cornish culture and it is a privilege to be part of this,” Merv said. “We have three ceremonies a year led by the Grand Bard, a short proclamation ceremony is held in the spring to announce and publicise the main ceremony which happens in September. “This travels around Cornwall to a different venue each year and is a magnificent spectacle of music. “In addition to these, there is the Awen ceremony which takes place in mid-summer at a historical site such as a stone circle.” Merv said another exciting experience during his role as Grand Bard was entertaining the Queen. “In my role as a spokesperson I piped the Queen aboard the royal launch during her trip to St Michael’s Mount then joined her

for lunch as Grand Bard,” he said. The Cornish people are one of the oldest cultures in Europe, dating back 2000 years. “Heritage, culture and identity are important to the health of any society. “We are also part of the modern culture that is the Cornish global diaspora,” Merv said. While on the Copper Coast, Merv will officiate at the Gorsedh ceremony in Wallaroo on Saturday, May 20, as well as entertain with his pipe at the Meet the Cornish Concert on Friday, May 19. “I will also be presenting a paper on Cornish folk music, dance and identity for the Kernewek Lowender conference,” he said. “When my wife Alison and I aren’t busy being Bards, we have a day job with our family ceilidh band. “In the first series of the television show Poldark, we were employed as dancers and musicians playing for village weddings. “We will do a street workshop to teach people some of those traditional dances on Saturday afternoon of the festival.”

Rare historical photos revealed for festival

are photos from the early days of copper mining in Moonta have been turned into a book, available for purchase during the Kernewek Lowender. National Trust of South Australia Moonta branch found the photos at Mason, Gray and Strange Auctioneers and Valuers in Adelaide and paid

National Trust of South Australia Moonta branch chairperson Stephen Stock and secretary Peter Ferguson with the two 100-year-old binders of rare photos which have been compiled into a book for the festival.

about $1500 for the collection. The images, arranged in two binders, were presented to David Davidson upon his retirement from the mines 100 years ago. “All the photos tell us a story from the time Mr Davidson started at the mines in 1870 up to his retirement in 1917,” Moonta National Trust chairperson Stephen Stock said. “We are still trying to find out who made the original books. “It would have been a lot of work because there is artwork around all of the photos. “It took two books for them to give Mr Davidson the full story of his time in the mines, and there are

about 120 photos in total. “The pictures are not just of the mines, but also the district at the time. “Many of these photos we have never seen before.” Moonta National Trust purchased the binders a couple of years ago and will display them at the School of Mines, Ellen Street, Moonta, during the Cornish festival. Volunteers have also turned the pages of the binders into a book, which will be for sale at the School of Mines or by order. A limited-edition print including signatures of the local National Trust chairpersons will also be available.

ARD of Cornwall Lilian James, of Moonta, is excited to again teach Cornish language lessons at her 14th Kernewek Lowender. “My language lessons involve learning some common expressions, basic conversation, some common words, and we sing a Cornish song,” she said. “They’re a lot of fun!” Lilian has a long, proud Cornish history and enjoys doing her bit to keep the culture and language alive. “This year, my great-grandfather is being honoured at the Kernewek,” Lilian said. “He came out from Cornwall, went looking for gold at Ballarat then decided to come to Moonta.

“I was born at East Moonta, went to primary school at Moonta Mines and high school at Moonta.” After school, Lilian became a teacher, working all over South Australia and New South Wales, including a stint at her former high school. Lilian moved back to Yorke Peninsula 10 years ago. She has travelled to Cornwall five times and decided to learn the language after reading the Cornish Society was going to teach lessons in 1983. “I studied for five years and have really persevered with my language over the years,” she said. “It’s a lovely language and I’ve loved being in the Cornish Society and the contact with people in Cornwall. “I’ve been to language weekends where people only speak Cornish.” Lilian has taught Cornish to more than 100 students, with four passing

their final exams and becoming bards. She has also spoken to many groups about the beauty and culture of Cornwall and was awarded the Paul Smales Medal in 1995. “The medal is given to one person in the world each year who has worked very hard for Cornwall,” she said. “It is judged by the Bards whether that person is worthy of a great honour.” As one of about 35 Bards of Cornwall in Australia, Lilian will also be participating in the Gathering of the Bards in Davies Square, Wallaroo, at 2.30pm Saturday, May 20. You can join Lilian’s Cornish language lessons at the Moonta Mines Church Hall from 10am Wednesday, May 17. The lessons are suited for those aged 15 and over; tickets are $15 from www.kernewek.org or at the door.

OU can learn more about Wallaroo’s history and its haunted past during this year’s Kernewek Lowender. National Trust SA Wallaroo branch president Colin Boase is hosting a historical town walk and ghost tour every day from May 18-21. “We take in all of the heritage sites in the town centre and at the same time we tell everyone about the haunted buildings,” Mr Boase said. “It has been successful in the past, we have even had ghost hunters come to the museum and they heard strange voices on their devices.” Mr Boase said it is believed one of

the ghosts at the museum is former postmaster Frank Pengelly. “The ghost hunters stood by his old typewriter asked ‘how long did you work in the post office?’ and a male voice responded with ‘40 years’ which was spot on,” Mr Boase said. “We had heard a lot of stories about the haunted buildings in Wallaroo and when we looked into them we found a few strange things had happened. “The Cornucopia is renowned for being haunted and probably has the most ghosts in Wallaroo.” Mr Boase said the tours will also cover Wallaroo’s Cornish history. “The tour shines a light on the history of the town and the people who lived here,” he said. “We have held these tours before and

Former Liberal whip to be honoured in Dressing the Graves O NE of those being honoured at a Dressing the Graves ceremony is Peter Allen. Peter was not only a farmer at Greens Plains, but also a local politician and the Liberal Party whip for a number of years. He was born in the Auburn/Clare region in either 1854 or 1856. His parents and older siblings came to Australia from the Orkney Islands, Scotland, in 1852. Peter acquired land at Greens Plains in 1880. He married Helen Henderson, daughter of Thomas and Ellen Henderson, of Cocoanut Station (near Paskeville), the same year

and they had five children. Peter represented the District of Wallaroo in the House of Assembly in 1902. He was re-elected several times but lost his seat in 1912. Peter returned to the parliament when Yorke Peninsula was separated from the Moonta/Wallaroo portion of the district in 1915. Peter was described as jovial and witty, and was popular amongst his colleagues. For many years, he was Greens Plains’ correspondent for The Advertiser and media outlets in other parts of the world. He continued farming at Greens Plains until his

parliamentary duties interfered and he relocated to Norwood. Peter collapsed while walking down the steps of Parliament House on October 22, 1925. He was taken to hospital but died, a heart attack the suspected cause. There were many tributes of sympathy. Peter was laid to rest at the Greens Plains Cemetery with his daughters Isabelle and Violet.

Peter Allen, who is buried at the Greens Plains Cemetery, will be among those honoured at Dressing the Graves during this year’s Kernewek Lowender.

What is Dressing the Graves? Dressing the Graves is a series of moving ceremonies held to honour ancestors buried in the district’s cemeteries. Local school choirs sing and place flowers on the graves, and it is a memorable opportunity to gain unique knowledge of the history of those who lived in the area. The events are free and open to everyone, not just families of those being honoured. Dressing the Graves will be held at Greens Plains Cemetery at 10.30am on Tuesday, May 16. The Wallaroo Cemetery ceremony is 1.30pm the same day. The Kadina and Moonta ceremonies will be at 10.30am and 1.30pm respectively on Wednesday, May 17.

flour, beef dripping and water, you rub the beef dripping into the flour with your fingers. “We don’t chop or dice the vegetables, we use a traditional method called chipping. “The Cornish used to chip the vegies with their fingernails, but we use small butter knives to cut fingernail-sized pieces.” Traditional Cornish pasties have four vegetables — potato, turnip, onion and pumpkin, and small diced skirt steak rather than mince. The pastry is rolled flat and round, the ingredients added and salt and pepper. Then you fold it and, most importantly, crimp it,” Wendy said. “The crimp was used as a handle for dirty miner’s hands then thrown away after eating.”

Moonta Area School in the Cornish spirit Nick Perry

JOURNALIST

Moonta Area School students Caylim Karpany, Mickyla Fry, Thomas Kerridge, Blake Bowden, Riley Wanganeen and Tammin Hughes are excited about the Kernewek Lowender.

OONTA Area School will again be heavily involved in the Kernewek Lowender through food and drink stalls, catering, singing and dancing, and much more. Students have been learning about the area’s Cornish history in preparation for the festival. Food and hospitality teacher Nicole Cross said children will join the furry and maypole dances, whilst the choir will sing a traditional Cornish song during Dressing the Graves in Moonta. “Our kids will also be in the Moonta street parade and on various floats,” she said. The school kitchens will be a hive of activity in the lead up to, and during, the festival. “On the Friday, the years 11-12 students are running a market stall as a task for their SACE,” Ms Cross said. “They are steering clear of traditional pasties and doing different Cornish foods such as apple and rhubarb pasties with butterscotch sauce, beef and stout pies, and chicken and leek pies. “We’ve all heard stories of the miners whose pasties had meat up one end and

fruit at the other. “The school will have three stalls overall including one just for drinks so people don’t have to line up at the busy food stalls if they’re thirsty. “The middle school is running a stall selling Cornish-style souvenirs they are making, and will also display Cornish games — profits will help fund the students’ excursion later in the year.” Students will supply morning tea for the premier and other invited guests, and make pasties for the Band of the South Australia Police. The school captains and middle school leaders are also involved in the alwaysentertaining pasty making competition. Year 3 teacher Kerry Crosby said her class has learned about everything from Cornish pirates to how the region’s mining history started. “We learned about our Cornish history all last term and took a trip to the museum, rode the train, visited the lolly shop and then the cottage,” Ms Crosby said. “The kids have drawn Venn diagrams showing what is similar and different between then and now including food, clothing, transport and classrooms.”
