Three cheers for her Majesty for giving us a once-in-a-lifetime excuse to celebrate and have a good
time! And the people of St Teath can always be relied upon to throw themselves wholeheartedly into
having a good time, whatever the occasion.
       We were of course incredibly lucky with the weather. Whilst other communities were holding their
parties on Saturday in the pouring rain, we were snug and dry in the Church Hall watching talented
villagers of all ages from 5 to 75 put their heart and soul into entertaining us. Then on Monday, as the
Queen was wringing out her shawl after Sunday’s wet and windy pageant, our Street Party took place in
brilliant sunshine. Our only problem was how to stop the chocolate buns from melting in the heat.
      Luck was certainly on our side but luck had nothing to do with the tremendous support Elaine and
her team received from villagers from the moment the Jubilee Celebration plans were announced. The
response to the fundraisers was astonishing and offers of help on the day were overwhelming. Tickets
for the Concert were sold out well before the day; people paid good money just to stand in any available
space and nobody complained. At the Street Party villagers’ contributions of food exceeded all
expectations. By 2pm there were plates of buns, sausage rolls, quiches, scones and cakes balanced on
every surface in the Community Centre – and still they came. Although pasties, rounders, saffron cakes
and splits, as well as a gigantic cake had been provided for over 200 guests, almost twice this number
turned up, but there was plenty for everyone. Two days later Barbara and her Lunch Ladies put on their
Red, White & Blue Lunch with traditional Roast Beef, delicious red, white & blue desserts prepared by
Laura and an amazing raffle. Again the support was heart-warming and a staggering amount of money
was raised for Help the Heroes (More details on page 7)
      It would be impossible to thank everyone who helped to make our celebrations the wonderful
success they were, but special mention must be made of the St Teath residents (especially those of
Hatherleigh Terrace) who went to great trouble to decorate their houses; of the White Hart and the Post
Office who donated all the soft drinks and crisps for both events; of the Bell Ringers who created a
jubilant atmosphere for the Party; of the men who willingly lugged tables and chairs from all over the
                                                                    parish; of all backstage helpers at

                                                                    team of optimists who worked

                                                                    a Jubilee to remember. Well done,

A Reader writes

Once upon a time – isn’t that how stories are meant to begin? Well, once upon a time
there was a tiny, dare I say, insignificant grain of sand. Now this grain of sand had an
amazing story to tell. It was a surprising story, for apart from the its close companions,
very few of those who saw the tiny grain of sand would ever have imagined the great
come-down it had experienced.
Like many of us who experience disappointments and let downs in life, the tiny grain of sand felt
ashamed of its continuing journey down the slippery slope of the beach. Once, many, many years ago
there stood above the beach a mighty towering rock, full of the importance of being the highest point;
until the night of the great storm, the blackest of nights when, with a thunderous crack, the huge rock fell
from its hitherto pinnacle, and smashed on the rocks below.
In the light of a calmer day, one piece of rock at the foot of the cliff, tried desperately to join itself to the
surrounding fragments of the fallen pinnacle, struggling to find a way of regaining its previous place at
the top. But it was pointless; it would never again be part of the pinnacle, things would never be the
same again. And, who knows, what we thought of as sea-spray was in fact the trickling of tears of de-
spair!
All that was a long, long time ago. Day by day, as the years passed, the piece of rock was thrown about
by the sea’s tides. The twice daily grinding on the other rocks, gradually wore it away into a smaller
piece, smoothing its rough edges, allowing it to learn how to take its place with all the other changing
rocks.
Quite when this newly forming grain of sand overcame its feelings of disappointment and despair, we’ll
never know. But not only did it overcome them, it discovered a new role. No longer at the pinnacle,
aloof, apart from the happenings on the beach, (although it knew it had been there once), this little grain
of sand is now part of a great gathering of grains giving pleasure to all who walk, swim, play or rest on
the beach.
And who knows what the future will bring for this insignificant grain of sand, what do you think? Will this
story end happily ever after?
There’s a beach where Jesus walked, leaving his footprints in the sand.
Mary Stevenson wrote ‘Footprints in the sand’ about such footprints, you may wish to dig it out and read
it.
May your beach memories and visits be blessed times!
                                                                             Sue Wilcox (Reader)

 As last year we will be having a Tombola stall instead of a Raffle. We would be grateful for do-
 nations of prizes big and small, as we have to have prizes for three days. If you have anything
 you would like to donate please let Yvonne have it. It can be left in her porch or at the back of
             the church (with a note attached). Thank you for your help and support.

DAVE'S GARDENING DIARY for JULY
It's a strange fact that while gardeners tend to be patient people, who take the long
view, and always think that everything will turn out fine - and it usually does, they also
love a good moan. This year they have had plenty to moan about from the weird
weather patterns to the growth of the snail population to epic numbers. It has been,
and indeed continues to be, a year when a gardener rips up the rule book, and follows his instinct. Our
plants are still growing, even if it is at the "wrong" time. This year, just enjoy them when they
appear. Meanwhile keep the Village Show in mind, and keep dead-heading and weeding and feeding,
so that we may astonish the judges with our ability to cope with anything that Nature throws at us.

Keep sowing salad crops at fortnightly intervals,and you can still sow carrots if you missed them
earlier. Remember to remove the tendrils from your tomatoes, and keep them tied to their
supports. Check your wallflowers, foxgloves etc. sown earlier, and prepare to pot them on, but don't be
too hasty. Let them develop a good root system. Pick sweet peas as they appear, in order to keep those
beauties flowering for as long as possible.

Remove flowers from delphiniums, lupins and other perennial plants as they die off, and keep a daily
watch for aphids, bugs and infestations like rust and Black Spot, and remove immediately., burning
diseased material if possible.

Runner beans seem to have been particularly badly hit by this very odd season, and if your first planting
has suffered, and you have a few beans left over, pop them in now. Monty Don himself said a few days
ago that now that the soil has warmed up, and conditions are a little more settled, a second sowing
should be fine. Make sure that they are well fed and watered, support them well, so that they are not
snapped off in a high wind, and you should be enjoying these lovely vegetables in early Autumn. They
will taste very good.

Our flower beds are full of colour at the moment, with roses, day lilies, lilies and clematis, as well as
lupins, delphiniums, foxgloves and poppies all flowering and giving us vibrant shades of every hue.
Some gardeners have room for the Oriental Poppy, which is about as "showy" as you can get, with its
great, silken blooms.However, they are soon gone, but if you cut the stems right down, it lets in light and
air, and enccourages the plant to give a second flowering later in the summer. If you have a particularly
lovely specimen, and would like more of the same, try some root cuttings. Pick out your favourite plant,
and lift it in August or September. Cut off pieces of the root, about as thick as a pencil, and about 2ins.
long. Plant these around the edge of a pot filled with very gritty compost, so that the tops are just below
the surface. Then put them in a cold frame or a greenhouse till the spring, when the rooted cuttings can
be potted on into individual pots. Leave them in the pots till the Autumn, when they can be planted out,
ready to flower the following year.

Retire to the shed, with a cup of hot tea!

We apologise to the Community Bus Committee for omitting the Bus Timetable from last month’s news-

                    The W.I. ladies met in the Community Centre on Wednesday, June 13th., and after
                    the singing of Jerusalem, Barbara introduced our speaker - Mr. MICK RYAN from an
                    organisation known as CHICKS. When this group was founded 20 years ago, it was
                    intended to let people know what they were for - namely Country Holidays for Inner
                    City Kids, and the children involved in this were usually the victims of poverty, but
                    today the organisation exists to help any child who desperately needs a respite - for
whatever reason. Some of the children's stories are pitiful, some are shocking, and some are almost
unbelievable. They all benefit from their stay lasting a week. There is a "camp" in Cornwall, and one in
Devon. The children are housed in buildings, rather like a Youth Hostel. There they are looked after by
teams of caring volunteers, given home cooked wholesome food, given new experiences such as horse
riding and rock climbing, and when they leave, they are given Memory Bags, containing photos of all
their wonderful experiences, along with contact nos. for other caring agencies. Every child has
benefitted from this respite from a daily life that we cannot comprehend. The talk certainly gave us much
to think about, and to be thankful for our own families.
After the talk, Yvonne suggested that next year, we could raise funds for them through a Cream Tea at
Pencarey. A suggestion instantly accepted, with the W.I agreeing to run this event.
Business matters followed, and as there was no competition his month, Flower of the Month was as
follows -
           1st.   ANN    2nd.   DAPHNE       3rd.MAUREEN.
Before closing the meeting, BARBARA thanked MARGARET for chairing last month's meeting, and gave
our results from Royal Cornwall - very creditable.
Our next meeting will be on Wednesday, July 11th.

ST TEATH VILLAGE FETE
      Saturday 19th May saw the annual Village Fete in St. Teath. There
were a good variety of local crafts and produce for sale and, with a bouncy
castle and coconut shy among the entertainment available for the children, a
real family atmosphere was created.
       It was not a day for watching your waistline however as the abundance
of food was too good to be missed. Homemade burgers from Alice in Burger-
land, local pasties, hot donuts, a sweet stall and Cornish cream teas - not
forgetting the delicious cupcakes from Kelly's Cupcake Creations.
                                        The fete is organised by the Carnival Committee and we must
                                 say a big thank-you to last year’s Queen and attendants for doing
                                 such a good job promoting the Carnival, their hard work on Saturday
                                 means we should have two queens’ groups again this year.
                                        The day was extremely well attended and we were able to
                                 raise nearly £500 to go into the carnival pot.
                                       We hope everyone had a good time and look forward to seeing
                                 you again next year.
                                                                      Photos: adrianjasperphotography.co.uk

  Dear Elaine and your Jubilee Committee,
                What a fantastic afternoon we all had to
  celebrate our wonderful Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
         We cannot begin to thank you for everything you
  did for St Teath and even the weather did its bit with
  sunshine for the whole afternoon, We enjoyed every
  minute and we are sure that everyone else did too.
         Thank you so much for our lovely flowers that
  we’re sure we didn’t deserve, as we only cut that mag-
  nificent cake to earn them!                               The Three P’s cutting the cake
         The children who dressed up in the competitions did themselves proud and we were happy to hear their
  ‘thank-you’s’ as we handed over their prizes. It was good to be able to have extra St Teath coins even when some
  of us had forgotten to order them – so yet another Thank you!
        So this comes with all our love and grateful thanks for a ‘never to be forgotten’ Diamond Jubilee Celebra-
  tion in St Teath
                      From the Three P’s – and on behalf of everyone in St Teath –

ST TEATH CARNIVAL QUEENS
                             By Kind permission of the British Legion our Carnival royalty were crowned
                             at a Cream Tea held at Pencarey, Trevilley Lane on 17th June.
                             Carnival committee spokesperson Dave Garner started by thanking Emily,
                             Alisha, Megan, Lillie, Brooke and Jenna (last years royalty) for doing such a
                             good job in representing St. Teath. This
                             was followed by the crowning of this year’s
                             royalty, by Phyllis and Pearl.
                      Our Carnival Queen for 2012 is Alisha
                      Weeks, with Phoebe Harris and Bethie
                      Hewitt as her attendants. As we are lucky
enough to have two groups again this year our Fairy Queen is Kiya
Parkes, with Kayleigh Wren and Zarna Lucia Gwynn as her
attendants.                     Photos: adrianjasperphotography.co.uk

A GOOD READ                       BRING UP THE BODIES by Hilary Mantel

England is in turmoil, rumours, intrigue and gossip are the order of the day in the corridors of power, the Royal
family is at the centre of a sex scandal and it never seems to stop raining.
Again and again, throughout this rich and exciting story of the last days of Henry VIII's doomed Queen Anne Boleyn
in 1536 there are disturbing - and often amusing - parallels with our own time. Hilary Mantel manages to breathe
life into the Tudor court and the chief spin doctor of the day, Thomas Cromwell so effectively that we realise that
English politics (and the weather) have not changed as much as you might expect in 400 years.
You don't have to have read Mantel's Booker Prize winning Wolf Hall to appreciate this shorter, sharper, sequel
and you don't have to be a fan of historical fiction to enjoy the story either. Mantel has a great gift for creating three-
dimensional characters who crash through her pages and make the past come alive.
 Here, Cromwell the son of a blacksmith who has risen to become the King's chief advisor, is a brutal power-broker
and the most powerful politician in the court. But he knows that to remain in the ascendant he has a delicate prob-
lem to solve: How to get Henry out of his marriage to Anne and how to persuade reluctant Jane Seymour to be-
come Henry's third Queen.
One of the things that make the story so compelling is that it is also a deeply satisfying story of personal venge-
ance. As Cromwell wheels and deals to bring about the downfall of Anne, he uses the opportunity to level scores
with old enemies. Yet he never looses his humanity completely. His home is a sanctuary for waifs and strays and
misfits and, even amidst the chaos of a Royal marriage crisis, he is trying to steer England towards a fairer society
by drafting laws which will help to shape the world we know today.
Beautifully written, painstakingly researched and finely drawn, there is intense drama in Bring Up the Bodies, but it
doesn't take the shape of battles, of monasteries being robbed or rebellious subjects marching. Jousts are reported
but we don't go to them. Violence is imagined and even acted out in a mime but we don't see it. What happens to
those who are interrogated is left disturbingly vague. In this clever, subtle, novel, lives are lost with careless words,
with the glance from a lady, the lusty smile of a king, the mockery of a dangerous man.

      HOPE                                                           Look ahead, the path is smoother,
      Nothing's gained without an effort,                            There will come a brighter day.
      No battles won without a fight.
      Never let your heart be heavy                                  Never let the worries harm you,
      Dawn will always follow night.                                 Or the doubt and fear begin,

ST TEATH SCHOOL REPORT
      The children at St Teath have been very busy this month learning about the Olympic
Games and preparing for and celebrating the Diamond Jubilee. The whole school celebrated
the jubilee with a themed Jubilee lunch. The playground was decorated and all pupils made
crowns to wear to the celebration. A good time was had by all.
      We took part in ‘Walk to school’ week. Many pupils made an extra special effort to walk to
school each day and those who lived too far away to walk parked and strode. Pupils in Year
Two have taken their SATs this term. They worked extremely hard and we are proud of them for
their effort and achievements. Pupils in Years Three to Five have also been being assessed this
term. Pupils and staff in Class Three had a great time during their first surfing lesson this week.
The class will be continuing with these lessons weekly until the end of term.
      Staff from St Teath and St Breward schools met up this month to plan a joint Sports Day
which will be taking place on the 25th June. Pupils are looking forward to next week when they
will have the opportunity to take part in a Capoeira dance workshop at school.
      We were expecting our visitors from Uganda this month, however unfortunately due to cir-
cumstances beyond our control this has been postponed until September. We will hopefully be
able to confirm the dates in the next issue of Timepiece, as we know all of the community will be
keen to be involved in making our visitors feel welcome in St Teath. We will set up a timetable
at the school for residents in St Teath to sign up to for offers of accommodation, invites to family
meals and taking them on daytrips, so that we can provide our visitors with as rich an experi-
ence as possible of the culture in Cornwall.
    Visitors are still welcome to see how we work and can join us for school lunch. To contact
school, you can phone on 850516 or email on head@st-teath.cornwall.sch.uk

ALLEN VALLEY SINGERS
      June has been a busy month for the country. In spite of the grey skies, there seems to have been colour
everywhere with the procession on the Thames, the magnificent concert outside Buckingham Palace and the
service at St. Paul’s Cathedral, In the towns and villages we all got together with street parties and other events that
brightened our lives for a while. My personal high spot was the journey of Gary Barlow, who visited many countries
and gathered singers and instrumentalists without formal training, whose music was part of their lives and part of
the world around them. That he then translated all that experience into song and even brought the original
performers to the Jubilee concert was a feat of magnificent proportions and the whole production was the highlight
of the show, particularly that little African girl who started the song.
      All very inspiring, particularly to a choir that has already produced its Autumn schedule. We have a variety of
concerts and they kick off with a visit to St.Merryn Church, at 7.30 p.m. on September 15 th. We enjoy our
performances in this church and hope that you will put the date in your diary for a good evening of singing.
     We have a social evening on Tuesday 31st July for members and their friends and families at the home of our
Musical Director, as informal evenings are a good opportunity to meet, chat, eat (and possibly drink!), just for fun,
without so much as one ‘note’ to ‘bash’. However singing will still be on the Agenda, this time in the form of a
karaoke evening, a new experience for most of us, which will make for an interesting event.
     If you would like to join our choir, or make a booking, please contact our Musical Director, Janette Man,
Telephone 01208 841784,
All other queries to Dr. Joyce Hargrave-Wright, Publicity, Telephone 01208 264004
TINTAGEL ORPHEUS MALE VOICE CHOIR.
The choir’s busy season is now well underway with the following scheduled concerts.
                                 2nd Summer Concert: Thursday, July 19th, 8pm.
                                 3rd Summer Concert: Thursday, August 2nd, 8pm.
The venue for these concerts is Tintagel Social Hall.
On Sunday, July 15th at Tregadillet Church, 7pm we will be joining Launceston Male Voice Choir for a memorial
concert to remember the life of Clifford Jenkin who was a member of both choirs for many years. Everyone is wel-
come.
At the time of writing this, our Hon. Sec., Bob Fox, has had to stand down (with immediate effect) for health rea-
sons and as yet no replacement has been appointed but you can always ring me if you want more information
about concerts, transport to venues or would like to come along to choir practice and see what it is all about. You
would receive a very warm welcome and a cup of tea. No auditions, just join in.

ROSCARROCK REVIVAL
We continue our busy rehearsals, with no concerts scheduled until August, we are learning several new pieces.
Should you be interested in booking our choir, Dave Phippen, 01208 880127, or Sue Coster, 01208 880332, would
be happy to talk to you about dates and venues.

MOOR HARMONY
       Moor Harmony goes from strength to strength. As we approach the summer time we have been pleased to
perform at a variety of venues including Bodmin Hospital fete, a surprise birthday party, and a fund raising dinner
for the Mayor of Wadebridge and a performance package to St Tudy W.I. where we used barbershop song and
techniques to explain the singing and history of Barbershop. We also held a very successful Open Evening during
a rehearsal night where we extended an open invitation for people to come and see a typical rehearsal. Our visi-
tor’s book recorded many enthusiastic comments and we are hoping to make this event bi yearly. Look out for in-
formation in the autumn for our next invitation!
      We have been delighted at the warm response and support our singing has received and are looking forward
to 7.30pm on Friday 27th July, when we will be performing at St Minver Church for a combined concert with the St
Minver Silver B Band.
      We sing in A Cappella, barbershop style and are pleased that we continue to steadily extend our repertoire,
singing in a variety of styles and tempo. Please contact us if you would like us to sing at your event.
      Moor Harmony Ladies Barbershop Chorus extends a warm welcome to any lady who loves to sing. We have
great fun practising at our rehearsals and performing in public and welcome any lady who would like to join in with
the camaraderie and thrill of learning this fantastic singing style. We meet on Thursdays at the Wadebridge Ambu-
lance Hall, Fairpark Road (behind the cinema). Just turn up on the night (at 7.15pm) or phone to find out more details.

      SO CHEERFUL
      I smile on Sundays - it's a day I like;                   If you like to write a journal,
      I smile on Mondays as I ride my bike;                     Then your story it will chart.
      I smile on Tuesdays, as everyone knows,                   If you love recalling people,
      I smile on Wednesdays as the wind blows;                  Keeping photos can be smart.
      I smile on Thursdays, as I shop in town,                  But, oh! please do remember
      I smile on Friday - why wear a frown?                     Though such records play their part
      When it rains on Saturday, I smile then, too,             Memories keep freshest when
      If you were as happy, you would, too!                     They're tucked inside your heart.

                               DID YOU MISS THE JUBILEE CONCERT?
Don’t despair, you are going to get another chance to see the Entertainment Event of the
year! Since so many people were disappointed not to get seats for this special show, we have de-
cided to put on a repeat performance after the Summer Holidays. See next month’s TIMEPIECE
for the date and booking information. There will also be a DVD on sale of the entire show, for
those who couldn’t believe their eyes the first time round. Details next month. We have a healthy
sum of money left in the Jubilee Fund which we hope to supplement with the proceeds from this
Concert – we shall then be asking villagers how they would like to see this money used for the
benefit of the community.
