At this time of year the Church has two festivals – Ascension and Pentecost. Pentecost is the better known of the two, although it is also known as Whitsun. What is now known as the Spring, or late May, Bank Holiday used to be known as Whit Monday as it was associated with Whitsun. Pentecost (Whitsun) moves around in the calendar as it occurs 50 days after Easter which is itself a moveable feast.
The hall is now open after the old rotting floor has been replaced with new oak flooring and also installed under-floor heating and a ground source heat pump. THANK YOU to our PARISH COUNCIL for securing a grant with SITA, we thank them for their input. THANK YOU to the HALL COMMITTEE for securing a BIG LOTTERY grant and juggling all the balls at once. Thank You to Garry Middleton-Batts the project manager and Mike Palmer the main contractor. Thank you to all involved and the patience of the regular hall users. We now have a hall we can be really proud of and which is now warm and dry and redecorated. There are still items to be completed namely the kitchen, BUT WE ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS.
THIS IS HOW WE DID IT! Thank You Peter Tulloch for the photos.
Something great came out of today’s litter pick. From now on we will be teaming up for Recycling for Charity and passing all of our recyclables over to them. This is a perfect example of how different groups in Callington can work together. To find out more about Recycling for Charity click the link below…. announced Town councillor and volunteer litter pick leader Mikkie Raphael.

Members may recall that back in May
2016 we offered fixed term Investment Opportunities to members, rather than
obtaining commercial loans, at the time the SHARE Church Park Solar PV
installation was nearing completion, and again in 2018.
Members were able to directly support SHARE’s aims and the Church Park project, and benefit from a preferential interest rate. At the same time, SHARE was able to obtain funding at lower cost than would have been possible from banks, and the full financial benefits remain within the community. Our 40kW solar installation at Church Park was fully funded by members. Since then, routine interest has been paid, and some loan capital has been repaid. The next substantial repayment of capital is due in June this year.
are now able to offer a new opportunity for Members to invest in SHARE
by providing new loan funding. The Directors would like this new investment
opportunity to be spread as widely available as possible. Full membership is open to anyone who lives,
works or owns property in South Hill, and Associate membership for anyone else
interested in our work.
Save these valuable resources being wasted. They can help our charities raise funds.
