Carnival Float for St Neot Cornish Fairy Queen

Well, it’s been a hectic few weeks getting the carnival float together, but it is finally completed!   It’s looking darn good I have to say.  So here we are in Liskeard where we came first in the Fairy Queens category.

Not long after we have visited Lostwithiel carnival where we came second.  Brilliant to see the Rotary club running these events so well.  The streets were completely lined with people and the atmosphere was amazing.

Another weekend and another carnival.  Does the party ever end in Cornwall?

Minions offers some amazing walks

Minions is perhaps not on the top list of Cornwall destinations to visit, but it should be.  This small and sleepy village hosts a whole bunch of Cornish archeology – mining being the most obvious.  The views are stunning and it’s only a few miles to walk to the Cheesewring (cheese ring or Keuswask for some) and the Hurlers (stone circles).  So if you are near Bodmin Moor have a look and bring your walking boots as most could walk around all day.
