Wherever we were, we had a camera close to hand and here’s a gallery of some of our favourite moments from the regatta weekend.

The Tall Ships Have Arrived

posted on August 28th, 2014 by Laura Ellis

Tall Ships

The Tall Ships have arrived and we can’t wait to get out of the office and enjoy the fun.

We’ve put together a little guide for what’s going on around Falmouth so you can make the most of Tall Ships 2014!

Today (28th August) is the first day of the regatta. The tall ships are open to the public until 7:30pm, so you can climb aboard and have a look around the ships. There’s also live music and entertainment around the town, as well as exhibitions and displays at the National Maritime Museum, Falmouth Art Gallery and the Princess Pavilion. There’s also lots of children’s activities throughout the town, including art and storytelling at the Maritime Museum.

Friday 29th August - the ships are open to the public again, and as well as children’s activities, exhibitions and displays around the town, Friday is also the day of the inter-ship crew sports competitions that will take place on Gyllyngvase Beach. These are followed by the crew parading through the town in imaginative fancy dress, ending at Events Square for the prize giving ceremony.

The festivities continue through Saturday 30th August with the day ending in a spectacular firework display.

The ships are closed to the public on Sunday 31th August as the crews prepare to sail. The Parade of Sail starts at 11am and will see the ships leaving the harbour and making their way along past the beaches to the starting line off Rosemullion Head. There’s live music and entertainment in the town while everyone gets ready for the start of the race at about 4pm.

The boats will race from Falmouth to Greenwich, London, where they are expected to arrive on the 5th September.

We wish them all the best of luck, and are looking forward to joining in the celebrations.

If you’re in Falmouth to watch the races, don’t forget to pop in to our Falmouth store and say hello!

Introducing Patrick Semmens: Cornish Hedge Builder

posted on August 27th, 2014 by Laura Ellis

100_0228 copy

In the first of an occasional series about Cornish crafts and heritage we take a look at traditional Cornish Hedge Building.

Penwith has a distinctive and uniquely Cornish landscape with small fields and winding lanes edged with Cornish hedges. These hedges are so characteristic of Cornwall, it made us curious to find out more about this Cornish tradition. We met up with Patrick Semmens, a local hedge builder who’s built many miles of Cornish hedges over the past four decades and is a founder member of the Guild of Cornish Hedgers.

Patrick explained that a true Cornish hedge is made up of local stone, packed with earth or subsoil, there’s no other material required, other than practical skill. “The shape is distinctive with the hedge being as wide at its base as its eventual height. It should taper in from the base with an inward curve and the top is domed with consolidated soil and thick turf – this acts like a roof to the hedge, shedding rainfall and protecting it from water damage.”

There are over thirty thousand miles of hedges in Cornwall and some date back to the Bronze and Iron Ages. A well-built hedge can last for well over a century and usually reflects its environment using local stone. In Penwith this is granite and a hedge here has a completely different look to one in north Cornwall where the local stone is killas (Cornish for slate) which, unlike granite, has flattish sides.

Hedges that border fields are often gradually covered by grass and wild flowers, sometimes so much so that the stone is completely hidden and they become a real haven for wildlife. Around houses and villages hedges are usually maintained so that the characteristic stone pattern can be seen.

The Guild of Cornish Hedgers was set up to promote the building of quality Cornish hedges and thanks to Heritage Lottery funding they run an apprentice scheme to keep this ancient craft alive.

Would you believe that it’s nearly the end of August already? We can’t either. If you’re lucky enough to have some time off this Bank Holiday weekend, but aren’t sure what to do, here are our recommendations for getting out and about to make the most of the last of the summer sunshine. There’s plenty to do in Cornwall!

Mullion Scarecrow Spectacular – Friday 22nd until Tuesday 26th August

Every year, the Cornish village of Mullion hosts its annual ‘Scarecrow Spectacular’ weekend. For 2014 the theme is ‘proper job’ and each scarecrow will represent a different trade or profession. You can enter a competition to see if you can guess all 68 of the scarecrow jobs correctly!

Jubilee Pool Food Festival, Penzance – Saturday 23rd August from 10am – 5pm

If you’re a fantastic foodie, pop along to the Jubilee Pool Food Festival in Penzance on Saturday.  Your entry ticket includes a draw to win a lovely Cornish hamper stuffed with goodies, and you can sample some amazing food from local producers as well as a barbeque and live music. All proceeds go to ‘Save our Lido’ fund, in order to restore the much loved pool which was destroyed by the floods earlier in the year.

Cornwall Folk Festival, Wadebridge – Friday 22nd – Monday 25th August

It’s a packed programme this year at the festival, with lots of different artists playing in many venues across Wadebridge. Get your dancing shoes on!

Newlyn Fish Festival – Monday 25th August

Newlyn’s annual celebration of fishing and seafood is back: there’s a fish kitchen with live demonstrations, harbour demonstrations as well as music and activities for the kids.

If you’d like a slightly more relaxed weekend:

Go for a walk on the South West coastal path

There are many miles to choose from – stroll leisurely around the Lizard, or take in the dramatic scenery of Cornwall’s north coast.

Go fruit picking

Blackberry picking season has just started, and once you’ve finished your foraging, why not give our apple and blackberry crumble recipe a go?
