Delabole Cricket Club 2017 Season

Having won Division Five East of the Cornwall Cricket

League last season, the club had a poor start to their

season in Division Four East. They lost seven of their first

fourteen matches, with five others being rained off; the

club found themselves second from bottom of the league,

and in danger of being relegated. However, a late surge

saw them win six of their last eight matches, with another

two being rained off; leaving them in sixth place.

These results show that when all players are available,

Delabole is as good as any other team in the league.

Therein lies the problem however, as there is a lack of

players (as it seems in all team sports), and the worries

as to the future of the club.

Delabole Cricket Club would like to thank all those who

have assisted the club in any way, especially the tea

ladies and men, and the scorers.

Once again, anyone interested in helping the club, either

by playing or with the running of the club, please contact

Glen Burrell on 01840 212722

SLATE DONATIONS

Many thanks to the generous folk who have left some

money in the box at the Post Office. Any contribution

towards the production costs of The Delabole Slate are

very gratefully received and your support is much

appreciated. Thank you.

Delabole Slate AGM

The AGM of our village newsletter was held at ‘The Poldark

Inn’ early in September with seven members of the

Committee being present but no members of the general

public.

Last year's Minutes were recorded by Margaret Shilling

(Secretary). These were read, accepted and signed by our

Chair (Patricia Molloy). The Treasurer (Barbara Tyson)

presented the accounts and explained that, owing to

extremely kind donations from Good Energy, the

Community Shop, the Post Office box and private

individuals, the situation this year is rather better than at

this time last year. Thanks were expressed to Barbara and

to Bob Chapman, who is responsible for collecting the

advert money.

During ‘Matters Arising’ and AOB, it was noted that The

Old Bank at Camelford continues to print the newsletter

and grateful thanks were expressed to all those people

involved in ‘The Slate’ production and delivery. It was

agreed that a reserve list of deliverers and helpers would

be a good idea, especially helpers with an in-depth

knowledge of computers.

All officers were re-elected and thanked for their

contribution.

Charity Music Day

Just been doing the page for the Chapel October dates and was rather horrified to see

that Charity Music Day is on 14th October! They do say that time passes more quickly

as you get older!

If you cast your mind back to previous years, you’ll remember that various musicians (no one’s been asked yet) entertain

during the day, there are Charity stalls selling their wares (including Christmas Cards - sorry), people (you?) pop in and out

throughout the day but lunch time is especially popular when there are delicious soups and sweets on offer. Obviously

teas, coffees and goodies are available throughout the day - and there’ll be plenty of donation jars around so that we

can make a contribution to this year’s charity, which is…

The Cornwall Birth and Baby Appeal.

The maternity and neonatal departments at Treliske have outgrown their current

space in the Princess Alexandra Maternity Wing at Royal Cornwall Hospital. In the

fifty years since the units were built, birth rates in Cornwall have increased

dramatically. They now deliver over 4,000 babies every year compared to the

2,500 babies delivered back in 1968 when the unit first opened.

They have received NHS funding to begin improvements, which will help them take a big step towards improving care

for women giving birth and newborn babies who need to stay in hospital for specialist care. Funds raised through The

Cornwall Birth and Baby Appeal will mean they can supplement the NHS investment and provide equipment that will

enhance the maternity and neonatal areas to give parents and babies in Cornwall the very best start.

So do come along on the 14th and put your hands in your pockets and some pennies in the jars.

St Teath Parish Council

There was no meeting of the parish council in August..

The October 2017 meeting will be held on Monday, 16 th

at the Delabole Methodist Room.

The new play equipment has been installed at St Teath

and thanks must be expressed to the group of dedicated

volunteers who planned, fund raised and developed this

project, with little assistance from the council. Another

group of volunteers is now working towards a new skate

park for Delabole so please give them your support.

The website is currently in the process of being created

and will be up and running as soon as possible. In the

meantime information is being displayed on the parish

notice boards.

It is disappointing that we have to report a spate of

vandalism in Delabole over the past few weeks. The

cricket pitch has been damaged and graffiti has continued

in the public toilets. The Council are now working with the

police to stop these mindless crimes. We are aware that

illegal substances are also being used and this is being

monitored and recorded in the event that charges are

made.

Contracts for the parish grass cutting, maintenance and

footpath trimming have been advertised.

Following the resignation of Cllr David Garrigan on the

Delabole ward, Cornwall Council have confirmed that no

election has been called and the parish council can fill this

casual vacancy by co-option. Notices have been placed

on the parish council notice boards and anyone interested

in this position, or for further information please contact

the parish clerk. This is an unpaid position for anyone

interested in helping their community.

You can also contact the Council anytime by emailing

clerk@stteathparishcouncil.org or telephoning 01208

72789. Our Chairman Cllr Tracey Weeks can be

contacted on 01208 851828 and our Vice Chairman Cllr

Gerald Heard is available on 01840 213644. Contact

details for all councillors can be found on the parish notice

boards.

To date, the council has received little feedback on the

question as to whether or not residents of Delabole feel a

village hall would be an advantage, whether or not it would

be used, and something that the people would support.

Many village halls open up great opportunities providing

not only a community base, but a hall with recreation and

catering facilities to hold parties, meetings, clubs,

conferences, educational seminars, indoor sports and

numerous other functions. Please get in touch if you have

an opinion.

Termyn Gwari Fleghes

(children’s playtime, in Cornish)

October is here and we are well and truly into Autumn properly, although

to be fair it felt like Autumn for most of September and even August! This

is the month when the deciduous trees mainly shed their leaves. If we are

lucky the leaves will be very colourful, cold weather making them change

from green to yellow, orange, red and gold, as they fall and die. A fun thing

to do with leaves, apart from jump in big piles of them,

is to collect as many different colours and shapes as you can and when

they are dry enough, use them to make pictures.

The other things you may find in October are hard seeds and nuts, like

conkers, acorns, hazel nuts and sweet chestnuts. Many animals need these

as food to help them last through the cold winter. Squirrels, in particular,

will eat a lot of nuts in Autumn and will also collect and hide nuts, saving

them for later when other food runs out. The squirrels which live down in

Delabole woods(down past Helland Barton) are very busy at the moment,

eating and collecting nuts and berries. If you go for a walk in a wood, see

if you can spot any squirrels and work out what they are doing.

The competition this month is an Autumn colouring one. The picture is a

squirrel made from autumn leaves - there are a few nuts hidden in there as

well! See how carefully you can colour the picture in, using Autumn colours

if you like.

Padstow to R ock Success for Team Jo D ow ns and C am elford Stingers

Well done and congratulations to Logan Chatterjea

-Camelford Stingers, Jo Downs and Philip Thomas of

Jo Downs Handmade Glass.

The Padstow to Rock swim took place on the 6 th August.

Jo Downs approached Logan from Camelford Stingers to join her

corporate swim team for the 1 st time this year. Jo is a big supporter of our

club and trains with us. She also offers generous raffle prizes when needed.

A corporate team consists of 3 swimmers who can be seen in the challenge

by wearing different colour hats.

It was really exciting to be watching at the finish

line and spot two orange hats out in front of all

the other swimmers. It was even more exciting

when we all saw Logan running out of the

whole swim 1 st followed by Philip who came

overall 2 nd . The race was then on for Jo to come in before the greens and blues. Two green

hats could be seen keeping up with Jo. She fought on to the end and it was the Orange Hat

team coming out on top – It was an Irony as the Trophy that Team Jo Downs won, was

designed and made by Jo Downs Handmade glass herself.

Jo stated her training with Camelford Stingers ‘..really helped us win. Logan is a star

swimmer and we were privileged he agreed to swim with us.’

The Jo Downs team has entered the Padstow to Rock team 5yrs running

and raises money for Marie Curie Cancer.

She will be keeping up her training with Camelford Stingers and would

recommend others of any age give the club a go with a big Thumbs Up!

This is a

shilling!

The Lost Coin

Early in September, Peter Parsons led the

morning worship at our Methodist Church

and, although he’d sorted the video and

projector before the service, when it came

time to play the DVD that he wanted it just

To fill in whilst the problem was sorted out, he recounted

a story that his father had told to him. It was of a little boy

who’d swallowed a shilling and his father took him to the

doctor to see what could be done.

The doctor said he didn’t think that it was anything to worry

about, just wait awhile and let nature take it’s course.

However, the father was not keen on the idea of leaving

the coin in his son’s body, so the doctor suggested that

he be taken to the Methodist Church the following Sunday

morning.

Somewhat puzzled, the father asked why - to be told, ‘Well

those Methodists can get money out of anybody!’

Community Lunch

Lovely to see so many of you at

September’s Lunch. It was fabulous.

Looking forward to your company on

Tuesday 3rd Oct for Cottage or Fish Pie.

Remember, we’ve changed the date to the FIRST

Tuesday of the month.

GIVE US A VISIT - WITHOUT OBLIGATION


H ere for you

It is always a privilege to be asked to conduct special

services at key times in people’s lives: Christenings;

Weddings, Blessings, Renewal of vows; Funeral and

memorial services are all times that your local church is

pleased to be here for you, in addition to important

occasions in our year: Remembrance, Christmas and

Easter, for example. Yes, we would love to welcome you

to regular services too, but if that is not for you at the

moment, we are still pleased to be available when you

want us!

The Church of England’s system means that every

resident in the parish of a particular church is our care and

concern - the Bishop shares ‘the Cure (care) of souls’ with

the appointed priest - so we are officially here for everyone,

not just church-goers.

Here in the Camel-Allen Cluster (Lanteglos, Camelford,

Advent, St Teath and Delabole) we are also custodians of

five varied and beautiful buildings, which I know are valued

by many in the community. Others are less familiar with

what treasures they are and we do invite you to come and

visit - they are all open in the day every day. (St John’s

Delabole is usually locked in the winter but we would gladly

arrange to open-up for you) Come and experience a

peaceful and spiritual space in a busy world. Enjoy the

wonderful architecture and heritage and take some timeout

to catch your breath, remember a loved one, reflect or

pray. You might be surprised by what you find!

Speaking of prayer, it is also a privilege to pray for our

communities. We do so at least once a day through the

week in one of the five churches in turn. If you have

something or someone you would like us to pray for,

please let us know - we would be glad to pray for you

specifically as well as generally. You can write prayer -

requests in the books in the churches, ask a churchmember

to write it for you, or ring me on 01840 212468.

We are here for you.

Village Horticultural Show

Well done to all those who organised our Village Show.

Thank you for all the time and effort that it takes - from

booking the judges, carting tables and chairs, printing

schedules, making sure the trophies are returned, serving

refreshments and being in the right place at the right time

on THE DAY.

Don’t know the exact details, but from the exhibits I should

think that there was an excellent number of entries both

from adults and children and the standards were of the

usual high quality. It was certainly colourful when you

entered the School Room, with wondrous flowers and

vegetables on display, it smelt just like a harvest festival

and who knew that the inhabitants of Delabole could grow

such prize-winning specimens.

In the chapel you were greeted by the sight of artwork,

handicrafts, photography, floristry and of course all the

wonderful cookery items.

Studying the entries, it was also good to read new names

on the competition labels as well as those of ‘old hands’.

It all bodes well for the future of our village Show.

So, THANKS to all those who organised and took

part, you are appreciated.

Thanks to Ron

Batt for many of

the photographs.

Others available

in ‘The Slate’ on

the village

website.

New Start

It’s that time of year when new

starts take centre stage and our

village Women’s Fellowship is no

exception. Our meetings are on a

fortnightly basis from September to May and besides the

usual speakers and topics we are aiming to include

contributions from our local C of E friends and strengthen

ties with Methodist Women in the Week St Mary section

of the Circuit by sharing Sue Ede’s ever popular services

for Advent and Lent and this year organising a joint Cream

Tea and Stall for Farming Community Network at which

Mrs. Jill Nute has agreed to tell us briefly about her role

as Cornish Vice-President of MWiB.

Last year we visited Little Harbour Children’s Hospice and

this was much appreciated by our members and those

who joined us from the village. The experience opened

our eyes to the tremendous work undertaken by that

movement so much so that this year we are planning a

visit to Mount Edgcumbe and again including any from the

community who would care to join us.

You don’t have to be a Methodist to come along on every

other Wednesday at 2.30pm in the Methodist School

Room for an hour and a half (ish). We start with ten

minutes of devotions, then hand over to our speaker and

finish with tea and biscuits. The year’s programme is

varied and if you’d like some company or to make new

friends it’d be great to see you. It can be rather daunting

joining something new, so if you’d like someone to pick

you up, do ring 212558.

October’s gatherings are on Wednesday 4th when my

friend Ruth and I will be sharing our Cruise around the

British Isles (we set sail from Falmouth and one of the

first people we met were Denise and her husband, from

Delabole). Actually this meeting will be in the chapel so

that we can show the photographs - promise there won’t

be too many and we’ll try not to make it boring. The next

event will be that Cream Tea and Stall on Wednesday

18th to raise funds for our President’s Charity which is a

voluntary organisation that supports farmers and families

within the farming community through difficult times.

THANK YOU

I would like to say a big thank you to the ladies of Delabole

me. They were very much appreciated. I thought the

displays in the chapel were lovely. Congratulations to

everyone for all the hard work you did to make the Village

Chapel look so lovely. Thank you again. God Bless you

all. Hazel Usher

A big thank you to all those who supported us at the

cream tea where a massive £800 was raised.

Many thanks, David and Lorraine Jasper.

A Big Thank You to

The Bettle and Chisel

How kind of The Bettle and Chisel to arrange

a Charity Afternoon and share the proceeds

between the Church and the Chapel.

The sun shone and there were many stalls and games to

support and have fun at, plus that engine to ride and

Fernley’s mega walk in the sweltering sun to contribute

to. Don’t know what the actual name of the Parrot Puppet

that Johnny was persuading people to guess the name of

turned out to be, but whoever ended up with it must have

been delighted.

HELP REQUIRED

CAN YOU HELP PLEASE?

I am researching my Great Grandfather William Sloggatt

Rosevear and his uncle Thomas Pope Rosevear who

were born and grew up in Camelford. It is presumed

they were in business together owning a slate mine in

Delabole in mid 1800s and also owning small ships

which again were presumed to be used for shipping

slate out of Port Gaverne. Any information, guidance or

hints would be greatly appreciated. Please contact

David Hawkins at wishmead@btinternet.com

Like many people we have our fingers crossed for some

dry weather! If we manage to get the fire engines washed

they don’t stay clean for very long!

If you would like us to attend a function please get in touch

and we will do our best to be there.

We are continuing our search for suitable premises that

we can open to the public. Please, if you hear of anything,

let us know. Find us on
