The Coronavirus Pandemic 2020 and 2021

The Restronguet Creek Society committee extends warmest good wishes to you all and hope that this finds you well.

For those of us who live in and around Restronguet Creek we are fortunate that we have been able to find solace and comfort in nature throughout lockdown. We can enjoy the coming and going of the tides, the wonderful views and walks alongside the creek or we can venture further afield using the extensive network of footpaths and bridleways that zig zag the landscape. We can even take to the water.

We must all look after our health and wellbeing during this difficult time. As the pandemic continues - and we observe the restrictions it imposes on us - we can count our blessings that we live in such a place and can make the most of time spent connecting with nature.

The over-riding aim of the Creek Society is to protect and enhance what we have here - and that is what we will continue to do, for everyone.  Stay safe.

“Source” exhibition - Two rivers, one creek

The forthcoming “Source” exhibition which was featured in the 2020 newsletter
has now been postponed until the weekend of 16th & 17th October 2021, due to the uncertainty and possible restrictions of the Coronavirus pandemic.

The Source project is a collaboration of eight artists who live by and love Restronguet Creek. Each artist is inspired by the creek and its two rivers - the Kennall and the Carnon river. Watch this space for more information.

Annual General Meeting - 28th March 2020

For the first time in a number of years, we are looking forward to welcoming members to Devoran Village Hall for the 2020 AGM, being held on 28th March at 7 pm, in the historic former engine shed of the Redruth and Chasewater Railway.

Please make a note of this date in your diaries.   You are also advised to confirm attendance as soon as you receive your invitation early in the new year as it promises to be a very popular event. The reason?

This year’s presentation will be a talk about the industrial past of the Creek and in particular featuring the significance of the Penpol Creek Tide Mill following our very successful archaeological dig this last summer. It will be presented by Nick Johnson, former Cornwall County Archaeologist, and long-time resident of Devoran.

2020 AGM postponed due to Coronavirus pandemic

It was with great disappointment that we postponed the Annual General Meeting and members’ evening due to be held on 28th March 2020 because of Government lockdown restrictions relating to the Coronavirus pandemic. The Creek Society committee will be advising members of plans to reinstate the event once it has the confidence to reschedule.

We were - and still are - very much looking forward to having a talk given by Nick Johnson, formerly County Archaeologist, on the archaeological dig of the Penpol Tide Mill which took place last August. See the preliminary report in the history section of this website.

The committee hopes you and yours are all well and able to stay safe in these extraordinary times.
