Transition Lostwithiel e-news - June 2015

Transition Lostwithiel e-news - June 2015

Its Official - gardening is good for your health and some say should be prescribed by Doctors!
So enjoy your garden and grow your own delicious vegetables…. an all-round win-win
...has been going strong again this year every Saturday morning in St Bart's church yard 10-12 with lots of swapping, donating and chatting (about gardening of course!) last month we had loads of vegetable plants and this month, as the season moves on we have some lovely, easy to look after shrubs, perennials and sapling trees, all sustainable and add to the natural biodiversity of the area.

We are so pleased to have been able to donate £25 from Transition Lostwithiel and £50 from some of the proceeds from all the knitting done by the Phili-knitters to the Rotary Collection for Shelter Boxes for Nepal … amazing what plants and knitting can do!

Local Leisure Centres are again running the activity scheme for the over 50s.. so go along and join up to the BREEZE project at your nearest Leisure Centre … The Dragon Centre and be eligible for free swimming and other subsidised activities
The Post Office at Londis has 2 collections of post a day.
If you are married and don’t use all your tax allowance you can transfer the unused excess to your spouse.. see HM online and register your interest.
Liddicoats Butchers stock lovely frozen fish portions.. all caught around the coast of Cornwall … basic cod, hake etc- but they can order any kind of seasonal fish you want.

There are many great knitting groups in the town and surrounding area .. some knit for Syria premature babies, blankets for the ‘Fish and Chip’ babies in Africa, groups who knit for the under privileged, for the hospital maternity ward and also shawls for the elderly whilst in hospital and now a joint group for Luxulyan and Lanlivery are busy producing warm items for Nepal ... so alongside Phili-knits, who have received a brilliant amount of wool, we are collecting wool which we can pass on to the various groups …. Please contact Lesley Bower 01207873363 or drop wool into the lovely people at 2 Quay St who have supported the community so well by being a drop off point.

A watering can which you would like to donate to the group who are creating a herb garden at the Centre … please contact the Centre 01208 872207 or drop in … thank you.

The Great Cornish Artisan Show .. Saturday 18th July .. 10.30-3.30 at the Centre Show casing artists and crafts people. Beautiful handmade work, workshops, make and take sessions, demos, Pimms Bar and wood oven Pizzas from Kernow Forno ... why not stay on for the Carnival? … more next month If you would like to have a space at the show please contact Judy Skirton ... 01208 871297

It's just an idea at the moment for early next year (yes it takes that long to organise!)… so if you are interested in creating and helping this event, which we believe to be the first of its kind in Cornwall, become real, please come along to Saffron Café on Monday 15th June at 6.30 to see what you can help with

You are warmly invited to a community digital storytelling event to share memories, experience and local knowledge about past drought and water-use by the River Fowey, and learn about the science of drought.

Digital stories are short audio recordings with accompanying images selected by the person whose story it is. The stories will form a local archive of resources on drought, water scarcity and water use that can aid understanding and decision-making.

The workshop will take place at Lostwithiel Community Centre on Saturday 6th June 2015, 11am-3.30pm. A sandwich lunch, teas and coffees will be provided.

To participate: please email or phone Rachael Kennedy on 0117 32 87024 by the 31st of May.

Things to bring: Any photos of impacts of previous droughts, images, newspaper articles, or objects from home that help to share your experiences of the River Fowey (especially in times of water shortage).

The workshop forms part of research being conducted by the “Drought Risk and You” (DRY) project, led by the University of the West of England, Bristol, working with Exeter University

And of course lastly, Lostfest ... what an amazing day organised by amazing people and all for FLEET … the Centre was buzzing with a Vintage Fair.

Well, what can be said about JAZZ CAFÉ in Rafters Bar which was running all afternoon.. our musicians all played for free and you couldn’t get in the door at times … so many thanks to everyone who helped and the Centre for providing the venue .. £200 has been donated to Lostwithiel Centre from profits of the last year's Jazz Café... run by volunteers ... happy birthday Jazz Café!

The Lostfest Jazz Café raised £459 for FLEET this year … thank you to everyone who played, those who came and supported us and the volunteers .. next one August 9th .. Sunday afternoon when Jazz Café does Gypsy Swing with Swingology and Some Like It Hot… look out!
