Newsletter

This is an annual publication, free to members.  In recent years, it has been a 32-page booklet appearing towards the end of February, in time to be sent out to members along with the agenda for the Society's Annual General Meeting. Each issue contains reports on the year's activities and raises concerns from the Chairman, other officers and committee members, but usually, well over half the contents consist of articles and photos on a wide range of topics related to Restronguet & Penpol Creeks.

Copies of newsletters back to 1984 are available to read here. Take your time and enjoy learning more about the heritage and natural history of the Restronguet Creek.
  • Memories of the district as it was
  • local shops, local characters
  • natural history of the area, especially bird life
  • industrial history, highlighting mining and related industries
  • boats and boat building
  • the local regattas (Devoran and Point & Penpoll)
  • other events around the creek
  • recommended local walks
  • local farms & smallholdings
  • interesting local houses and gardens
  • cuttings from local newspapers
  • reviews of books and other publications relevant to the area
  • controversial issues, such as those related to planning proposals, the Mineral Tramways, new roads, speed limits, bonfires, moorings, and so on

The Editor, currently Carolyn Brownscombe, welcomes contributions, ideally typed or in electronic format, but articles in longhand are perfectly acceptable. Relevant photos, sketches etc are also welcome and originals will, of course, be returned.

The deadline for inclusion in the forthcoming issue is early December, but the earlier the better....!

Please contact the editor by email.
