News November 2016

After a happy harvest Thanksgiving with the Revd Martyn Pinnock, the Harvest Supper
on the following evening was a very jolly affair. After the Revd Mark Dunn-Wilson had
said Grace, we all enjoyed a hot pasty and an autumnal pud, a glass (or two) of wine
whetting our appetites for the after-supper entertainment.
Revd Mark opened the proceedings followed by an enchanting song from Gena and
a tune from Mike.
Trounce regaled us with stories: his own, and a wonderful Harvest story from Anne
Treneer’s ‘Schoolhouse in the Wind’.

Celebrations continued apace on the tenth day of the tenth month when Val Johns arrived for a (truly) surprise 90th birthday party. This had been arranged by her family who were there – all four generations of them – together with many neighbours and friends.
The bedecked church was packed for this very special party. Val was overwhelmed: she does so much for us all and we hope the occasion showed her how much we treasure her, and how much we love her.

‘PARISH NEWS’ – new style
A message from the editor
Well, this is the last year for ‘Parish News’ in its present format and frequency of publication. The one potential co-editor, though enthusiastic and getting to grips with ‘Publisher’, is now likely to move away from Cornwall.
I am happy to continue to produce issues in the current format, but in alternate months, [six issues a
year instead of twelve]. The remaining six months will have a two-sided A4 news sheet which will carry notices, rotas, reading lists, the diary of events, and maybe tide tables. The bonus is of course that this can be produced quite cheaply, and we can even email it to you rather than deliver a paper copy if that’s acceptable.
It could of course be produced as a Word document by anyone willing to take it on! It will have the same layout each time so it’s only a case of typing in new information every couple of months….
It’s likely that the cover price of the main magazine will rise to £1, but it will still contain the same
number of pages and variety of contents.
The subscription form will be in the December magazine as usual, and thank you to all our readers for your support and comments!

Advertising manager .
After many years of extraordinary skill in attracting advertisers [and extracting their money!] Pat Raine has decided that it’s time to retire.
Much to our delight Sue Day has agreed to take on this task. It remains for us to thank Pat for her
wonderful work over the years and to welcome Sue to the fold.
