Carnival Speciall

With no traditional Carnival this year, the Carnival Committee have come up with some ideas for Carnival Time.




Nagini the Carnival Snake  will be wending his way from School to Churchtown via the School Lane footpath. Look out for Nagini’s head on the Footpath from today and put painted stones to make his body – this is for children of all ages!


Annual Scarecrow Competition Theme is Marvel – so there should be some very interesting Scarecrows this year. Entry forms from here, the Carnival Facebook Page, or from Carnival Secretary Sharon 01208 850191
Return completed entry forms to the box in the shop or to No1 Row (opposite The Chapel) no later than noon Saturday 26th June. All Scrarecrows must be erected by noon Saturday 26th June and must contain some straw


Deck the Doors!!  Or windows, gates, entrances, wheelbarrows – anything you like!
This is something completely different and the Carnival Committee would like to include all the Deck the Doors and Scarecrows in a Village Trail for everyone to visit.  Please let Carnival Secretary Sharon know by noon Saturday 26h June if you will be doing ‘Deck the Doors‘ so you can be included in the Village Trail map  01208 850191

St Breward Carnival

‘not the biggest Carnival in Cornwall but certianly the highest’

Carnival Christmas Cheer  Well it was a funny old year so St Breward Carnival decided that we all need some Christmas Cheer!!  The community has always supported Carnival events and activities and this year the Carnival Committee did their own version of the Postcode Lottery to show their appreciation of this and to cheer everyone up


There was no entry fee and the prizes were 40 yes 40!  £25 gift vouchers to be redeemed at St Breward Stores, The Old Inn, Nicolas’s Mobile Catering and Button Meats

A Random Number Generator App was used to ‘draw out’ the house names of 40 lucky recipients. With just over 400 households being eligible (excluding Second/Holiday and Carnival Committee members homes), there was about a one in 10 chance of winning a voucher!

The draw was made in early December and the successful recipients were socially distanced visited by a Carnival Committed Member who delivered the vouchers

All the Winners!  John & Alison Hoskin, Janet Harrington, Fiona Hamilton, Tamsin Keat, Peter Sutton, Daniel Bate, Tina Walsh, Robin & Gill Barber, Kelly Northcott, Andrew &Nicola Dingle, Steve Kirby, Michael grundon, Hope Bendell, James & Naomi Guilfoyle, Shannon Hobart, Roy Burt, Teresa Philp, Mr & Mrs Meneer, Peter & Cheryl Cottle, Marilyn Hunter, Jen Cootes, James & Rachel Mosley, Marg Morrish, Mrs Stein, Keith & Hazel Glover,Jeremy & caroline Hooper, Nancy Hall, Jane Huston, Gillian Walsh & Ivor Hemmings, Michelle May & daughter Beth, Stuart & Alison Hayward, Victor & Jean Teague, Sue Winfield, Caz Buck, Michael Stringer, Andrew Finnemore, Ivor & Jan Chivers, Sonia Warren, Philip Crichton Jeannie Sutcliffe

Reindeer Food Supporting the Christmas Lights Group and to ensure that all reindeers were fed on Christmas Eve, the Carnival Commitete provided 130 bags of Reindeer Food which was distributed round the village mainly through School

The Carnival Committee are already thinking about Carnival Day 2021 which hopefully will be on Saturday 3rd July
