MONDAY OCTOBER 21st 2019

DEATH: Roger Howard of Bossiney, Tintagel, aged 80 years. Roger died suddenly outside the Women's Institute at Tintagel
on Thursday October 17th 2019.
Roger worked and jointly owned the Tintagel Pottery for many years along with Enid Mutton
The business closed a few years ago
He was a very good Potter and made the famous unique pots for the Tintagel Pottery whilst Enid skiifully decorated them
He kept himself to himself and was often seen walking or driving his car to the village

Funeral details later as Roger will have to have a Post Mortem

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!

What do you think?

See the Tintagel Parish Council Minutes on the site on our Parish Council page

The minutes are shown EVERY month on Tintagelweb and you can look back at the old minutes as well
...................................................

The so called 'wonderful bridge ?' has increased visitors for English Heritage by 40%
but in doing so has seriously affected business in our village.
Most go to the bridge and don't come down to the village

Thank you so much !!

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!

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!!   .
