Have you seen this GRAMPOUND fingerpost?

Have you seen the missing finger which used to point toward Grampound?  It fell off around Christmas time.

Unfortunately, if it is not found the cost of replacing it will probably be quite high, so if you know anything about it, please contact the clerk – or any of the Parish Councillors.  Thank you!

Did you know?

The weather forecast is dry and warm, but not too hot – Perfect.


See you this Sunday!

We’re getting everything sorted for a fantastic day out.

Scones and cakes are being baked, real ale ordered, Pimms bar prepped, fantastic food organised. We’ve got shires, birds of prey, Bugle Band, sheepdogs, great activities in the children’s tent including Mr. Punch and a sheep auction.

You’ll see some great old tractors and cool cars and the local gig.

There’s sideshows and fairground rides, a craft tent, animals to see including fowl and bees – and lots more.

You simply must enter your four legged friend in the fun dog show and please, please let’s see some of those fantastic photos, cakes, eggs, flowers, veg. and fruit entered in the horticultural show.

You must have a weird veg., a few choice blackcurrants, a bunch of flowers, a great bake.

It’s only 10p an entry and don’t think you need to be an expert. The show is all about enjoying yourself and having a go.


We have had fun counting down to the Greatest Show on Earth (that is – the good earth of St Ewe).  We hope you’ve enjoyed these fun facts and figures each week too.


See you on Sunday!
