Plant Sale and Coffee Morning


May 12th 2015

Plant Sale and Coffee morning

Get ready for the best plant sale this side of Cornwall!

Please come along to the Memorial Hall this Saturday morning, 16th May, and bag a few bargains for the garden – and enjoy delicious coffee and cakes – what more can you ask for?

And please don’t forget, the funds we raise go to putting on the Annual Produce Show – now in its 65th year, so any plant donations that we can sell on Saturday will be gratefully received. There will also be a chance to renew your memberships and collect this years’ show schedule.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Seal Sighting


May 5th 2015

A message from Sue Sayer of the Cornish Seal Group:

 

Yes indeed you are right – it most certainly is a common seal!

Excellent news and sighting.

We have had sightings of a common seal in the Fowey up as far as above Golant and Penpol but not this far up as you say.

The last report I had was 25/01/15 so it is good to see the seal is still about.

Many thanks for your hugely important sighting!

If you see it again – keep a look out when it dives to see if it has rear flipper tag….there is a common on the south coast that has come from mainland Europe!

Common seals are much rarer in our part of Cornwall than Grey seals

Wild Looe


April 14th 2015

   Local wildlife enthusiast and author, Dr. Derek Spooner, will be giving a talk, sharing the inspiration behind his book “Wild Looe“. Focusing on the wonderful diversity of habitats and wildlife found in and around the Looe Voluntary Marine Conservation Area, from rocky shore to fields and woodlands.
 
   This fascinating talk will focus on the diversity of Looe, west to Polperro, east to Seaton, and inland to Shallowpool and Sandplace, including the nature reserve of Looe Island. Discovering the rocky shore; the tidal estuary of the West and East Looe rivers; the ancient, semi-natural woodlands of the river valleys – especially Kilminorth Woods, Trenant Woods and Seaton Valley – and the fields and hedgerows of the coast path. It highlights the natural history of these environments, their protection and conservation.
 
   This is a joint event organised by the Friends of Fowey Estuary and Looe Marine Conservation Group. We hope that it will be a chance to meet some new faces from a like-minded group just along the coast.

THE PLANT SALE AND COFFEE MORNING

 

Saturday 16th May, Lerryn Memorial Hall. 10.30am

May we ask all our friends who enjoy the August show to sow some extra seeds and plant more than you need this month, so that we can benefit from your efforts and sell your excess plants to raise funds to put on the 65th Annual show.

The plant sale and coffee morning is a famously popular event where we like to catch up with friends and neighbours over a coffee – and bag a few plant bargains for the garden.

 

THE ANNUAL PRODUCE SHOW

Saturday 1st August, Lerryn Memorial Hall.

We’ve thought up some wonderful categories this year for the children’s classes, including “A scarecrow” – just as long as it isn’t bigger than 1metre! “A Clockface” (using fruit and vegetables), and a decorated plant pot. We’ll keep you posted over the coming months on other classes and news, so watch this space!

 

CALL FOR CUPS

Please don’t forget to return your prizewinner’s cups to Sue Hancock .

 

OUR IN-HOUSE EXPERT SAYS…

Don’t be fooled by the lovely spring weather we’ve been enjoying lately! April and May is an excellent time to sow all sorts of vegetables including runner beans, carrots, beetroot, lettuce and broad beans, but beware, the night-time cold and frosts can still be harmful to early plantings. And now is the time to weed, weed, weed, so don’t forget to sharpen your hoes!
