He would have celebrated his 82nd birthday on August 28th 2019

Peter wasTintagel's Mr Plumber, a great cricketer, footballer, tennis and squash player
and dear and treasured friend to many people. 
Tintagel will never be the same without our Peter, that lovely laugh and his always optimistic and cheerful disposition.
He bravely bore his illness and still worked as a plumber and visited Tintagel cricket matches until very recently
He loved being a plumber

Peter was one of Tintagel's treasures whose memory will never die. My own memories of him, over so many years, are very precious

The whole village and local community will sadly miss Peter Dyer.

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 likeminded ladies also recognised this & created a lasting memento plaque in memory of Florence.
Well done ladies!

TINTAGEL CARNIVAL REPORT FROM PHIL ASTON (SECRETARY)

Saturday 3rd August saw the end of another fantastic Tintagel Carnival Week with the ever popular Grand Carnival Parade.
Starting from Wicket's Field, Bossiney and wending its way through the village and back, led by Nancy the Shire Horse & Harry the Shetland pony 50 brilliant entries including visiting Carnival royalty and marching bands entertained a packed village crowd.
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.

REMEMBER .....NO VOLUNTEERS....NO CARNIVAL!!   .
