Mawnan WI invites members and non-members to this Community Workshop to be led by Ellie Stacey, to make poppies for the Cascade which will be displayed in the village on Remembrance Day.  The theme this year is Reuse and Recycle, so do come along, bring some materials and get creative to make red poppies from fabric, felt or wool, but not paper and card please as the Cascade will need to be able to withstand November weather.  The workshop will also include the opportunity to revamp some items from previous WI displays.  Please contact Ellie to register by Friday 15 October, so that we may ensure that we are Covid compliant.



Invite you to a FREE Informal Concert Sunday 17th October 2pm Mawnan Memorial Hall, join us for tea and cake and meet the choir. Donations welcome



Christian Boulton, author of the book ‘Five Million Tides’, which brings to life the incredible history of human activity around the Helford, will be talking about his connection to the river, via zoom on Saturday November 13th. The talk, organised by Helford Marine Conservation Group, begins at 7.30pm.

The zoom link is free for HMCG members and under 18s. For everyone else the fee is £5. For more details and to register an interest please contact 

‘Five Million Tides’ celebrates the story of the Helford from the Stone Age to the dawning of the 21st century. The Helford was one of Europe’s most significant waterways during the Iron Age and Roman periods. It was also once a thriving seat of Celtic Christianity, but ultimately it would become synonymous with lawless seafarers.  Christian has lived close to the shores of the Helford River for over 30 years. His wealth of knowledge will delight those interested in the surprisingly rich human history of this very special place.
