Bodmin Moor Study

The Bodmin Moor study results are finally in and I’ve just been informed that another trip to the moor is in order!

I will be presenting the results on Wednesday 19th September at the St Breward Institute & War Memorial Hall –  at 6pm  and  Friday 21st September at the St Neot Archives – at 6pm

If you would like to attend either of these brief presentations (and ask as many questions as you like!) please let me know so we have an idea of numbers.

Thanks and hope to see you there

Rememberance Commemorations 2018 – St Breward’s Poppy Wave

What London had, St Breward can Attempt ……………..

As part of the Remembrance Day commemorations in the Church I am building a Poppy Wave similar to those in London and Plymouth.

I would like to invite the community of St Breward to get involved by knitting, crocheting, sewing or making by any other craft, poppies to be part of this Wave. These can be in memory of family members or just as a token of respect for the fallen, or even just the challenge of producing something.  I have a crochet and knitting pattern for anyone who would like to participate, or you are welcome to work to your own design.

This project is going to take an awful lot of red wool! plus cut out card, crepe paper, or fabric poppies.  Grateful for any donations of these items that can then be used to make the poppies.

Please phone me or bring them along to the Memorial Hall when the Community Cafe is open on the first and third Monday of the month 2-4.30pm. Everyone is welcome to come along to the Cafe and work at making poppies

In order to give enough time to assemble the ‘Poppy Wave’, all the poppies need to be made by the end of October

Please contact me on 01208 851235 or if you would like further information. Fran Calver, Windfall, Rylands.


St Breward CP School Stand up 2 Cancer Fund Raiser

Friday 15th June from 1.30pm 

Coffee afternoon in aid of this essential charity.

The children have been asked to bake a cake at home (without too much help), to be judged by some members of the Carnival Committee, to be crowned St Breward School Baker.  There will be the usual refreshments, on offer, for those who wish to come and view the children’s marvelous confectionery achievements, and a raffle.  Raising money for this fantastic cause we invite all the community to come along and enjoy a cuppa and a slice of something.

Please, if you can donate a cake or some muffins, or a raffle prize it would be most appreciated. Drop into school Thursday PM or Friday AM, unless you are attending.

We look forward to seeing you at this event raising money for a fantastic cause.

After 13 years with the Luncheon Club, Lee Brattle will be retiring after the July Luncheon Club to spend more time on grand children duties

The Luncheon Club are looking for a new leader; this is an exciting opportunity to lead a happy team who shop, prepare, cook, serve and clear away at the monthly Luncheon Club held at the Football Club on the third Tuesday of the month.

The Leader of the Luncheon Club has overall responsibility, the Club has a Secretary and a Treasurer – being a cook is an advantage but not a necessity

The Luncheon Club would like to say a big ‘Thank You’ to Judith Nance on her retirement from the Luncheon Club, she has been with the Club for twelve years as a Helper and then Treasurer.  Lee and all the Members are grateful for her help and dedication which has been much appreciated
