Thanksgiving service for our animals
Celebrating God’s care and concern for creation
Sunday 24th September 10am
St Sampson’s Church, South Hill
This will be a short informal service followed by coffee, tea, juice and the best cake ever.
Our lives are enriched by our animals. They bring us many blessings and they play a big part in our lives, giving us joy, companionship, livelihood and sustenance.
You are invited to bring your well behaved: dog, cat, rabbit, parrot, stick insect, sheep, horse or chicken, whatever, to give thanks for the part they play in your life.
Bring a photo of your pet past or present.
On Saturday 19th August 2017 the 58th South Hill Horticultural Show took to Golberdon Village Hall with 600 exhibits of cookery, vegetables, handicrafts, photographs, flowers and children’s entries from 62 exhibitors. It was great to see so many new faces enter and support the show on the day.
The weather held off which aided in a successful day. Callington Mayor and Town Portreeve Mark Smith presented the trophies to the many winners and Liam Hartley of Maders presented the gift of a wooden crafted pen to Mark at the start of the prize giving. The prize winners were as follows below:
Many thanks to Spar of Callington for donating the joint of beef for the “Guess the weight of the roast dinner” won by Erin Beale and Trevallacks Farm Shop for donating the cream tea for two for the game “Guess how many buttons in a jam jar” won by Josh Gosling. The roast dinner weighed 6.132kg and there were 256 buttons in the jar for anyone wondering how close you were! Many thanks also goes to sponsors Helluva Pasties, Janet Harding Alterations, Keltic and Callington Fresh Produce for their sponsorship.
Next year’s show will be Saturday 18th August…. Please put it in your diaries and keep it free, it will be great to see you there and fill the hall with exhibits again! J

The SHARE in our Community Free Family Fun Day was an amazing success on Bank Holiday Monday. There have never been so many children in Golberdon Park, estimated around 300 people in total, all enjoying the activities laid on by South Hill Parish Renewable Energy community group, S.H.A.R.E.
Events centered on energy and money saving tips, recycling and reducing waste, including Kicks Count charity, clothes alterations by Janet Harding, promoting cycling with E Bike demos and bike slalom course, planting seeds, foraging the hedgerows and an energy science project. Plus The Big Beat Junk Band invited everyone to join in and make lots of noise.
“South Hill Rocks” was launched as rocks were painted and hidden around public spaces for people to find, then upload a photo to South Hill FB and re-hide, encouraging families to be creative and explore the area.
