What’s in store in 2019?

I’ve just uploaded some of the events and ranger days (volunteer days) that the Tintagel to Holywell Ranger team are leading or involved with in 2019.

There’s scrub bashing, Cornish hedging, bat nights, beach cleans, star gazing and bird box making amongst them. Hopefully there is something to suit everyone. Most of the events are family friendly. Take a look to see what’s on offer and get the dates in your diaries!

More will be added soon so keep checking back.

September at Tintagel OPO

The school summer holidays may sadly soon be over, but there’s still lots going on at Tintagel Old Post Office throughout September.

There will be folk music echoing amongst the ancient beams, we will be celebrating local female writers in the Women’s Institute next door. We will also be taking a closer look at the painstaking precision and nifty needlework needed in sampler sewing and how we care for these elaborate embroideries:

There are two more Activity Wednesdays left over the school summer holidays: tick-off #18 of 50 Things by creating wild art on Wednesday 22 August. All materials will be provided to help you create a mini-masterpiece. On Wednesday 29 August, create a memory box for your seaside souvenirs or Cornish curiosities as well as a badge or fridge magnet as a trinket from Tintagel. Normal admission applies.

Photos: Pentire Head and the Rumps yesterday

If there is one thing you do over the next week or two you should treat yourself to a stroll around the coastal footpath to witness the splendor of our maritime grasslands starting to bloom. Right now is the time to see bluebells at their best, carpets of spring squill, & rock gardens of sea campion and sea pinks starting to flourish. Great places to visit include Pentire Head, Lundy Bay, Tintagel cliffs, or Trevose Head. Happy hiking!
