THE JOURNAL GAZETTE SADLY HAS CLOSED DOWN
Tintagelweb is sad to anounce that the dear Journal Gazette had its final edition in October 2019.
after over 20 years of publication the Gazette has ceased production.
This is due to rising costs and falling advertising problems
I know the North Cornwall area will miss the monthly paper and it is a loss to so many people

Merv Palmer's Mentions Is Just a Lovely Memory

Goodbye Journal Gazette

E Mail from Sue Howard, Roger Howard's sister

Roger Howard, 2 Bossiney Court and formerly of Tintagel Pottery.
Roger Howard passed away unexpectedly on October 17th while going about his usual daily business in the village – driving to visit the cash point in the King Arthurs Arms and buying  a his paper in the SPAR  or Premier shops.
Roger was a very private person who lived a simple and frugal life. Although he was well known in the village very few people actually knew him. 
Roger was a lover of classical music and traditional jazz and was very knowledgeable about both.
Classical music or trad jazz tapes were always on in the car; however he had little time for any music written after the 1960s.
His taste in art was much more eclectic and he made several trips to London in order to visit exhibitions.  However he hated the bustle of city life and relished living in North Cornwall. Roger identified as a Celt – born in Edinburgh from Welsh and Devonshire parents he loved his life in Tintagel.  He moved to Cornwall from Kent in 1962. 
Initially working as a thrower for Roger and Jo Little in Callington, he moved to Boscastle in 1964 when he began to work for Mrs Everard at Tintagel Pottery. 
When her partner died around 1968 Mrs Everard asked Roger to move into Bossiney Court, where he has lived ever since. After  Mrs Everard’s death in 1974 the house was converted into two dwellings and Roger and Tintagel-born Enid Mutton, who spent most of their working lives as colleagues and business partners, soon became next door  neighbours.
Roger had many practical skills – as well as being a potter he did most of the work to convert his part of the house himself. 
Although not a sporty person he was a great cricket fan, always listening to the test matches on the radio while at work in the pottery and following the match highlights on TV in the evenings. Roger also enjoyed recreational sailing; he was a good yachtsman and for many years took his dinghy to Rock where he sailed in the Camel Estuary. 
He did a crossword every day of his life and in later years would buy the paper for the puzzles alone saying that the news on the TV was far more up to date
and enabled him to keep abreast of local events.
He will be greatly missed by his nieces and nephew for whom holidays in Bossiney were a precious part of childhood.  He was the ideal uncle: there were no house rules, he took them to many exciting places in Cornwall, joined in family walks and never asked inconvenient questions. 
Roger’s family will be holding a small reception at the Bossiney House Hotel on November 14th between 12pm and 2 pm in order to remember him.  A
All are welcome to join them for a drink and a simple buffet lunch.

GLOOMY NEWS FROM THE NORTH CORNWALL ADVERTISER

The paper has sadly been having fewer and fewer pages each month and now we hear that the main office in Wadebridge
has closed and all the staff made redundant.
Apparently an office has been opened in the Cornish Times building in Liskeard
The newspaper industry is suffering a lot from the popularity of the Internet and many old businesses are closing
At one time the popular Advertiser had around 150 pages each month and recently it has had less than 40 pages.
It relies completely on adverts and regrettably this source of income is drying up

Tintagelweb hopes their fortunes improve and we don't lose this once favourite monthly paper
...............................................................................

BOSSINEY TOILETS HAVE CLOSED

Here We Go Again

I CANNOT BELIEVE That the Parish Council made a very hasty decision to close
Bossiney Toilets at the end of September 2019 at their September meeting

Keep Trebarwith Toilets open but close the Bossiney ones immediately.
A lot of people visit Bossiney Beach and now the nearest toilets are a mile away.
WHERE WILL THEY GO??!!.
We know where and I think think the Council should not suddenly do this ridiculous thing

Unbelievable!!

To show the Cornwll Council's keeness to close these very important toilets they closed them a week early!!
Please, Please bring back the North Cornwall District Council which the Undemocratic Liberal Democrats stupidly got rid of many years ago.
The Cornish people were NOT given a vote by them!!

Now the Cornwall Council close toilets in Tintagel and pass on the financial responsibility to our Paris Council who can't afford to keep them open

Tintagel gets around 200,000 visitors each year so what a good idea to close toilets in Bossiney and Trebarwith??.
The County Council are crackers but look after the Truro araea!!
This will help to KILL Tintagel as a place to visit .....and GO!!!!!!!!!!!

DISGUSTING and VERY UNDEMOCRATIC!

TINTAGEL CARNIVAL 2019
REPORT AND RESULTS BELOW

.

Message on my Forum Page frpm Lynn Tansey
I have long been interested in learning as much information as possible about this amazing woman Florence Nightingale Richards.
The keeper of the keys to the castle. I have gleaned info from Tintagel book by Mr Dyer, also from odd photos.
But little seems to been known about the depth of her life, & also about her mother Sarah who was also a key holder in her time..
I wonder if this was a legacy or just an opportunity. Did Sarah's mother do the same.
So many questions.
I love to hear stories about women like this because this is real & not part of the myth making that seems to focus on men rather than women in a positive way.
I am not being sexist but rather an observer of reality. I would appreciate what anybody else has to offer about these incredible women.
I was so pleased to see that a couple of like minded ladies also recognised this & created a lasting memento plaque in memory of Florence.
Well done ladies!

The Overall Carnival Winning Entry was Trevenna Ladies Home Guard – Landa & Ladies and the Best Comedy Award went Tech Gnome – May Family & Co.
The Best Dressed Collector Trophy was won by Snapdragon – Lou Handley and the Best Queens Float was from Delabole.
Phil Aston, Chairman Tintagel Carnival, said, "What a fantastic Carnival Parade, a big thank-you to all the entries for their amazing contributions,
the Carnival Committee, visiting judges, Kathy Rowse (Queens compare),
Mel Rowe (Parade compare), the volunteers for all their hard work and the large village crowd for digging deep into their pockets to help raise money
to allow the Carnival to donate to local charities.
Next year more than ever we are in need of new committee members and/or volunteers to help organise & run Carnival Week.
Come on Tintagel, if you want a Carnival next year we need you to volunteer, come forward and join the committee.
