Summer Fete time!  The library is full of bric-a-brac, books and bunting in preparation for next Saturday (18th) – we hope lots of you can come along to what promises to be a brilliant day (and cross your fingers for dry weather!)

The Hidden Gardens of Penzance

All the effort on the day proved to be well worth it.  Stalwart gardeners from all over Cornwall braved grey skies and drizzle and saw a dozen or so Penzance gardens all at their very best.

Marvelous gardens both large and small were pored over and commented upon and dozens of cream tea fanciers meant there wasn’t a scone left anywhere in the whole of Penzance!  We made £1200 for Library funds, sold dozens of raffle tickets and had a lot of fun.  Many many thanks to everyone who helped and anyone with a garden they would like to include next year – please get in touch…

Here’s an image from the Morrab Gardens where Joe set up the bug mansion. All Morrab Gardens bugs are now properly housed thank you.

HIDDEN GARDENS DAY – Saturday 21st May

The first ever Hidden Gardens of Penzance was a brilliant success, and we’d like to say a huge thank you to everyone who helped out – opening their gardens, serving cream teas and dashing back and forth to the shops for supplies.  We’d also like to say thank you very much to the hoards of people who came and supported the event, we hope you enjoyed yourselves.  
The event raised massive £1,130 for the library, which was far more than we expected and very welcome, thank you!
