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.
Therefore we 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.
Some of you might not know what Face Yoga is, others may already know or might have seen the recent programme on TV Twinstitute where the twin doctors tried Face Yoga and a £1000 facial and scientifically tested the results. In just one month Face Yoga made them look 3 years younger than the £1000 facial!
Weekly classes are starting at The Old School, South Hill Parish Hall, Golberdon and Pensilva Hall after Easter. The classes are run by Lilian Jones. It combines facial exercises, acupressure, massage, relaxation, breathing and visualisation techniques for your mind, body and soul.
It’s a natural way to make you look and feel younger and healthier. As an aromatherapist Lilian will mix specific oils that improve the quality of your skin. Lilian has been practising yoga for nearly forty years and a teacher for about fourteen years. So Face Yoga is putting all the skills into practice. Come along and do something for yourself. Relax and look forward to more youthful looks as you turn back the age clock.
Classes cost £6 each or £50 if you book 10.
Starting at Golberdon Village Hall 10.15 am Wednesday 24th April 2019
The Old School, Stoke Climsland 6.00 pm Thursday 25th April 2019(tbc)

MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR !
My name is Caroline, I’ve recently moved to Golberdon with my dog Eliza. I’ve achieved a dream by buying some land in Latchley, much neglected for many years, my priority is to improve the ground. I’ve worked with goats, and intend to get some Angoras in the near future, but for now I’ve decided one of the ways to begin land recovery, was to get some sheep to graze! I’ve worked with sheep before, and when I started to look into breeds, I just fell in love with the fleeces of UK rare breeds, and settled on a small flock of pedigree Teeswater sheep and I’m now venturing into wool production.
I intend to sell my wool fibre for carding, spinning, felting, and any other crafting hobbies, either as raw locks or hand washed and dyed. Continue reading
Clothes- You can’t live without them- but sometimes you can’t live with them!
We love our clothes. But so many clients that I visit describe how they struggle to find anything to wear each day – yet their wardrobe is full to bursting. So much so that their clothes spill out over the floor, chairs, and anywhere else they can pile it up!
So, what’s going on? We are strapped for cash and space and yet apparently British women still spend an average of £74 per month on clothes, and British men an average of £100. With an average household owning approximately £4,000 worth of clothing, a staggering 30% of which hasn’t even been worn in the past year, that’s about £30 billion in unused clothing.
I find that people fall into several categories when it comes to clothes…
- Maybe you are an over-buyer or an unrealistic buyer of clothes
- Perhaps you keep clothes thinking that you will be able to fit into them again
- People buy you clothes that they think would suit you?
- You can’t resist a bargain in a sale or a charity shop
- They don’t know what clothes they already have
Enough of why we have too many clothes – how can you clear some space and enjoy the clothes that you do have? Continue reading
…. something to think about.
A tree makes its own food through photosynthesis. Leaves absorb carbon dioxide ( 1 part carbon 2 parts oxygen)
Scientists are still working on how to calculate the amount of carbon in trees. The generally held view is:
The average carbon content of a tree is 50% of it’s dry weight.
A tree absorbs up to 20kg carbon dioxide (CO2) each year.
A 40 year old tree will contain up to 1 tonne of carbon.
Carbon is stored in the trunk, branches and roots (and a small amount in the leaves).
The greatest store of carbon is within the soil, so disturbing soil by deep digging releases carbon.
A 55cm3 block of wood contains the same amount of carbon as would be emitted by boiling a kettle or driving a moped 1km.
Sea Kayaks Rick Cooper, from Trematon, Saltash, British Sea Kayaks, sells new GRP, or carbon fibre or polyethylene, sea kayaks made in Anglesey. https://britishseakayaks.co.uk/
Making these kayaks will inevitably result in the release of CO2 into the atmosphere, thus adding to the greenhouse gases. Most sea kayakers have an environmental conscience, they paddle to remote places to observe beautiful scenery and wildlife. Each kayak sold is accompanied by a free native hardwood tree which during its life time, will hopefully offset/absorb the carbon released during its manufacture. Kayakers can choose the species of tree they want. Some want to grow the tree in a pot to begin with because they intend to move house and want to take it with them (good trees for this hornbeam, beech, lime, rowan, crab apple) The most popular for planting in the ground are silver birch and wild cherry. If you have nowhere to plant your tree we can plant one in our wood at Trematon.
We were delighted to show members of the South Hill Association for Renewable Energy, SHARE, around our young wood and where Rick has his kayaks.
Rick’s aim is to put you in the correct sea kayak for you, and believes you should try before you buy, whether you are a solo paddler or a group, Rick is an advanced sea kayak leader and during your demo will be there for your guidance and safety, giving hints and tips to help you get the best from your experience.

From Liz Clayton: In March 2013 I was the 1st ‘Made in Cornwall’ member to introduce a new line of stock as in Warming, Cooling and Massaging Cherrystones Pads. These Pads are a replacement of my previous Wheat Pads. My Cherrystones Pads are filled with thoroughly cleaned cherrystones/pips. The covers are made of 100% cotton, fully lined and very importantly, washable. Since I introduced them, I have been so pleased in the many ways they are helping people. Apart from easing aches and pains I have had some delightful feedback for some of the not so common conditions. Polymyalgia Rheumatica / Fibromyalgia Pelvic Girdle Pain in Pregnancy / Breast Feeding discomfort Sports Injuries Stress Busters for ADHD / Autism Cooling for Radiotherapy / Warming for Chemotherapy Comfort Pads for Dementia Precious Pet Pads.
