This month’s adventure for the WI was a trip across from Plymouth to Drake’s Island where they had a guided tour around the island.
The weather stayed good and the 20 minute crossing in a small boat was smooth, the island guide was friendly and informative. The eco system of the island was full of birdsong with butterflies and bees in abundance.
The old brickwork of the tunnels and the ammunition stores was amazing but you definitely need a torch.
Everyone enjoyed their picnics surrounded by cannons. It was agreed by all that it was a worthwhile and excellent day out.Continue reading

South Hill W.I.
The event took place on Saturday 4th March from 9am – noon. The 86 visitors that attended saw exhibits from the WI, St Sampson’s Church, South Hill Piecemakers, SHARE, Justin from the NHS demonstrating the defibrillator and South Hill Village Hall. The main attraction however, was a display of the Neighbourhood Development Plan alongside Councillors talking about the plan and our ambitions for footpaths in the Parish. The visitors were from all areas of the Parish including Golberdon, Maders, Berrio, Mornick, Trewoodloe, Trewassick, Lansugle, Egypt, Trevigro, South Hill, Bray Shop, Jericho, and Manaton.
Our speaker for the evening was Mrs Anthea Lay, local artist who appeared on The Great British Painting Competition on BBC T.V. She told us of how she first started at a young age, being encouraged by both of her teacher parents providing her the materials she needed, also having to use whatever she could lay her hands on at times! This developed her love of painting.
Our speaker for the May meeting was Mr. Edward Buckingham who lives at Saltash, and he is the only Cornishman who has climbed the world’s seven summits. He explained and gave a powerpoint presentation detailing about his adventures.
