2017 has been eventful, literally full of events of one form or another. These have brought people into the Centre from near and far and we ended the year feeling satisfied that we’d had a busy and successful 12 months.
We began the year with This n That. This was a community recycling event. Local people came to donate and look through this and that to spot a bargain, or two. The Centre managed to raise much needed funds to help repair the side door to the Centre which had become damaged in the storms.
As Spring arrived we looked forward to our very first Spring Fayre. This was to include workshops from a variety of speakers. Marna Blundy spoke about how to become a Dementia Friend and we were able to find out about twiddlemuffs. Pauline made soup for lunch and we all had a great time. Children competitions and WI hampers and simply amazing crafts all made by local artists and crafts people.
Spring became Summer and we held a Summer Fayre! Cream teas and lots of Paleness amazing cakes. Marna returned to talk about where you can access locally if you are caring for someone with dementia. This led to a local directory being created…a copy of which can be found at the Centre. We also began our Solstice draw ticket sales. Kindly sponsored by Geevor Tin Mining Museum and The North Inn, Pendeen.
During August this year we were pleased to host the Bizarre Beachcombing Exhibition. We were very excited to see what this was all about though some of you may have previously visited the 2013 exhibition on The Alacrity, one of the ships wrecked on our rugged and beautiful coastline.
