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.
The guest speakers at our meeting in May were representatives from the Tamar Valley Health Patients’ Group (tvhPPG)
South Hill Womens Institute meeting held on 2nd September
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.
Our Christmas Party was on Wednesday 3rd. We all brought a plate of food to contribute towards the party, and we were treated to an evening of entertainment by the Pillaton ladies hand bell ringers who gave us recitals of various well known Christmas Carols. Members were then given the chance to have a go themselves!! This proved to be a harder than it looked!
A Community Day was hosted by the Neighbourhood Planning Team at the parish hall in Golberdon on Saturday the 21st September.
The original idea for the event came from a suggestion by Cat Ede, and we would like to say a big thank you to her for this excellent idea.
Our June Meeting we were treated to a talk with a slide show, from Michael Pettijohn showing us his time abroad, working as a Vet for MAFF. In his spare time, he captured on camera the way the African folk lived and how they’ve got very different ways that they live.
