URGENT

Delabole Carnival

Apart from a partial break, Alison

Stacey has held the post of Carnival

Secretary since its revival in 2001.

Last year and this, the Carnival has only taken place

because Alison resumed her role. This was in spite of

having heavy personal commitments. However, at the

end of July she is retiring from the Committee.

We are now relying on you, the residents of Delabole, to

help us find a replacement. Please speak to any

Committee member with your suggestions: we look

forward to hearing from you. We do not want this to be

the last Carnival but we are unable to function

successfully without a Secretary.

Alison, we need to thank you for the huge commitment

you have made over all these years. You are always

super organised, totally unflappable, very knowledgeable

and the whole package carries a smile!

This comes with an abundance of thanks and lots of love

from all those in Delabole who have enjoyed the

Carnivals over all these years.

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 School

‘How Can We Measure Pride?’

As another school year closes, it is always a time to look back and reflect

on our achievements. Truly, this school year seems to have flown by

faster than most.

We started the year with our WW1 Commemoration project, inspired by

the last letter home written by soldier/poet Wilfred Owen. Throughout the

Autumn term, we followed the journey of soldiers across the land as they

left their families, their jobs, their homes, to go to war – a tide of young

men, many of whom made the ultimate sacrifice. And who can forget our

whole school remembrance performance at the Chapel where we said

their names with pride?

During this time, we also underwent our Ofsted inspection and were so

delighted to be judged ‘Good’ as a validation for all that we have worked

so hard to achieve with the children and alongside our community. It is

only ever a snapshot of school life, but the validation of our vision for

education was a huge source of pride, and has spurred us on to be ever

more ambitious for ourselves and the children. We have always staunchly

believed that the children of Delabole should have inspirational learning opportunities which are at least equal to the

best of schools.

Which is why, we were delighted to gain affiliation with the Royal Shakespeare Company and take part as one of only

three Primary schools alongside a group of Secondary Schools in Cornwall, in a production of Macbeth at Falmouth

University. Our children will never forget that and were glowing with pride.

We should not forget the wealth of sporting achievements this year, and thanks to the newly acquired minibus, we will

now be able to access even more opportunities in the coming year. Whenever I see it out on the road with our new

school logo, I am proud. Similarly, we launched our new school website

and worked so hard to capture in words and images just what it is that

sets Delabole School apart.

And as the year draws to a close, in the final weeks of term, we received

news of really strong results for our Year 6 children in the national tests,

our heartwarming performance of Oliver took place at the Chapel and

we celebrated Tricia Molloy’s 35 years of commitment to our school

with a beautiful, mellow summer garden party. There was such a sense

of belonging that we could not fail to be reminded of what a privilege

it is to be part of our school, past, present and into the future.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to all that we are. We hope

you share in our pride.

Sue Cox and the team.

Shops in Delabole

Taken from the recollections of Cyril Hicks (1918- 1999)

Many years ago, when I was a lad, there were hundreds of shops in Delabole. That is probably a slight exaggeration

but there were several shops and I visited most of them. Nearly all sold sweets and other edible things such as ice cream,

rock and the like.

There was little pre-packed goods but the sweets were weighed out by the handful from the tall glass jars into tall triangular

paper bags. There was one shop where you knew you would not be served too much as the last sweet might well be

broken in half to get the correct weight! Other items such as flour and sugar were weighed out at the counter in front of

you, whilst ham and bacon were put through the slicer while you waited.

Shops such as the Co-op (where Spar is now) sold almost everything. There were, of course, separate departments for

the groceries, bakery, drapery and furniture - whilst outside was the corn store with the coal yard down on the siding at

the railway station. Delivery vans went around the village and carried almost everything. I do remember that at one time

there was a roundsman travelling the area taking orders for delivery.

At a rough count, I can visualise 33 shops, plus one owned by Harriet Ann Healey at Treligga. She sold a lot of pop plus

piles of chocolate to us as we came around that way from Tregardock. Those were the days, my friend!

I mentioned earlier that rock was sold - further than that, it was actually made in Delabole at Medrose by the Commins

family. I have on loan the wooden shop sign, which was he property of Marwood Commins. He travelled to almost every

function in the area with his mobile shop. This was a horse drawn van with an open side; the top section forming a shelter,

the middle part was the counter with Mr Commins standing behind it, saying to the youngsters, ‘What are you going to

have with the other half-penny?’ and, ‘When I’m sold out, I’m going home.’


Flower Festival

Well, it’s nearly here. The annual Flower Festival, in aid of Cornish Hospices, takes place in the Methodist Chapel on

August 3rd, 4th, 5th. If you’ve never been to one, why not give it a whirl this year? If you’re feeling even more

enthusiastic, there are plenty of opportunities to help with stewarding and the ever-present washing up! The only real

qualification is the ability to smile.

Help session times are each day: 10.30am – 12, 12 noon – 2pm , 2pm – 4pm and 4pm – 5.00pm either at the Hospice

Stall or in the kitchen. If you (and a friend) are able to help with any of these times do give Patricia or Helen a call.

This year’s theme is ‘Remembering’ and just to give you a flavour of what to expect, see if you can use the wordsearch

to locate some of the subjects that our talented local flower arrangers are tackling. Entries in Slate boxes by August

10th.

Termyn Gwari Fleghes

(children’s playtime, in Cornish)

It’s August! – the holiday month for children, school has finished until

September, the village Carnival has been and gone, and hopefully the sunny

and warm weather will continue!

Saying that, many people and animals would like to have a bit of rain. I

expect that you have noticed that grass is going brown and dry and your

gardens are needing watering to keep plants alive. For some animals it is

a real struggle to survive and you can help by putting bowls of water in one

or two places in your garden, for birds and hedgehogs. Many hedgehogs

have had to be rescued this year, suffering from dehydration(lack of water).

If you start to put out water, please keep refilling the bowls until the weather

turns rainy again – the animals and birds will depend on your help.

As everything is so dry at the moment, people need to take a lot of care

that they help to keep the countryside safe from fire. You may have seen

in the news that huge fires have already burnt large areas of moor in the

North of England, they caused a lot of damage and have been dangerous

for people and animals. Most of these fires were started by people throwing

away cigarettes, or leaving barbecues alight when they had a picnic. Please

remind the adults you are with to be careful with fire, particularly at the

moment, fire can spread so quickly and cause so much damage, so suddenly.

When you are at the beach, you also need to be careful with barbecues

and glass in particular- please ask your family and friends to pick up the

litter and leftovers so that the beach stays safe and fun for everyone. Put

barbecues out with water or sand, then when they are cold, put them in the

bin – DO NOT BURY THEM IN THE SAND, children have been badly burnt

this year by buried barbecues!

CAMELFORD & DISTRICT BOWLING CLUB

The Camelford B squad began last week's programme

with an away fixture at Bude B on Monday. No points

were achieved on the night although it was a close

fought match, both Ron's sides just missing out.

T. Goulbourne, J. Tarrant, D. Teague, E. Lowe lost 13 - 24

J. Cosin, R. Fry, K. Davey, R. Batt lost 15 - 19

G. Coe, D. Rhodes, G. Morris, R. Shillaber lost 14 - 15

On Tuesday, the A team also had a pointless clash away

to a Bodmin A twelve. It is fair to say that two of the

rinks were hammered with Neill's rink, again, losing out

by one shot.

G. Morris, E. Cato, M. Bray, R. Coleshill lost 13 - 31

N. Holmes, M. Prout, C. Parsons, S. Hambly lost 13 - 35

N. Owens, F. Bennett, G. Risdon, N. Wright lost 17 - 18

On Thursday and there was a vast contrast in scores for

the A team at home to a visiting Bude A team. The

Camels were looking for a few points to secure

membership of Division 1 and this was achieved with

aplomb. Four and a half points the final tally. Subtle

changes in positions on Stuart's side worked a treat.

The crowning glory was a beautifully drawn pair on the

final end by skip Bob to give his side victory by a single

shot.

C. Parsons, N. Holmes, M. Prout, S. Hambly won 26 - 20

G. Morris, E,. Cato, M. Bray, R. Coleshill won 19 - 18

N. Owens, F. Bennett, G. Risdon, N. Wright drew 23 all

On the Saturday of the previous week the Camels were

at Looe for an ECBL match, the formal for this league

being four triple rinks. This league will fully take over

from the CBL league in about two week's time. Only

Colin's side was successful on the day.

T. Goulbourne, K. Davey, C. Parsons won 28 - 7

J. Hoger, R. Shillaber, M. Prout lost 12 - 22

E. Cato, M. Bray R. Coleshill lost 13 - 16

D. Rhodes, N. Holmes, E. Lowe lost 13 - 21

Francis Bennett 6 July 18

The deadline for the September

Slate is August 10th

CAMELFORD & DISTRICT BOWLING CLUB

The Camelford club's top tier didn't have a very

successful time last week. On Tuesday a visit to

Kensey Vale A only nurtured one point from, so far, the

consistent Neill Wright four. Bob and Stuart's teams

were obliterated by the high scoring home sides.

Neill's team was neck and neck at the penultimate end

but secured five shots to gain the point.

E. Cato, K. Davey, M. Bray, R. Coleshill lost 6 - 30

N. Holmes, M. Prout, C. Parsons, S. Hambly lost 12 - 30

G. Morris, F. Bennett, G. Risdon, N. wright won 23 - 18

However, the A team were at home to Wadebridge A

on Thursday and didn't secure a single point, no home

advantage there. Again Neill's side were all square at

end twenty but dropped a single, whereas Stuart's side

was slaughtered with Bob's team losing by six shots.

E. Cato, K. Davey, M. Bray, R. Coleshill lost 15 - 21

G. Morris, F. Bennett, G. Risdon, N. Wright lost 18 - 19

N. Holmes, M. Prout, C. Parsons, S. Hambly lost 7 - 29

Verbal indications from members suggest that the B

team had a poor week also. One point was achieved

from a visit to Stratton C on Monday and on

Wednesday it was a pointless visit to Dunheved B. No

further information available.

Cornwall Councillor Message - August

In July 2017 parents from the Medrose end of Delabole received letters from Cornwall Council to the effect that their children would

no longer be entitled to free transport to Sir James Smith’s School as they lived within three miles of the school entrance, and as the

route via the unmarked rural lane past Deli Farm had been assessed as safe for pedestrians. The route (which had previously been

assessed as unsuitable for pedestrians) was reassessed under a new Council Policy which was approved by the Cabinet in May

2016. This closely followed the national guidelines which were published in 2012.

The parents quickly formed an action group and met with members of the Parish Council and myself and as a result, the parents

pulled together some common points and issues to form their appeals against the decision. Whilst the appeals process was underway

the parents were surprised to suddenly receive bus passes for 2017/18 in the post. It transpired that this was an administrative error

and Cornwall Council honoured the mistake giving all of the children one more year of free transport.

One year on and letters have once again been sent to parents with cases likely to come to the Appeals Committee on the 6th August.

Should the decision be upheld children may be offered "paid" spaces on the bus – however there is no guarantee that there will be

enough available places. Of the £13M schools transport budget over £8M is spent on taxis for pupils who need to change or travel

to school for special or emotional needs. This puts the whole system under considerable strain and with the new policy it was inevitable

that some routes would be reassessed.

I agree entirely with the parents and residents that this road is unsafe and having walked the route at 7 am with some of the parents

I was shocked to find cars speeding past us as we tried to press against the hedge. The national policy does not take any account

of darkness because in most schools, even a three mile walk in winter would be in daylight for a 9:15 school day. However, Camelford

School has a long-standing policy of starting the school day at 8:15 which will mean Delabole children walking in total darkness for

much of the winter.

Over the last few months I have worked with the school and the Parish Council to find a way to help the parents with their appeals.

Having approached an independent traffic consultant, I was very pleased when the Parish Council agreed to fund a report and in his

opinion the Council assessment was flawed and the route unsafe.

The national guidelines clearly state that:

In many rural areas, the exercise of continuous judgement is likely to be required. No criteria can provide all the guidance or answers

to every situation that may be encountered.

On some country roads the footway may not be continuous. Informed judgement will have to be made about the availability of “step

off” points.

I hope that the Appeals Committee will agree that a policy based strictly on national guidelines is bound not to work with our unique

Cornish lanes and that there will be enough evidence for the committee to listen to the parents’ genuine concerns and overturn the

decision allowing the children to continue to catch the bus.

A Methodist Ministers View

It seems to me that almost every week we find ourselves faced with internet messages or telephone calls from

organisations which operate ‘Scams’. These include messages about the potential loss of one’s internet, opportunities

to invest in dubious products, or messages about tax rebates.Which magazine recently reported that Her Majesty’s

Revenue and Customs department ordered 21,000 scam- websites to be removed in one month. When I see figures

like that I begin to wonder how many thousands of people are involved in these ‘dishonest’ pursuits in Great Britain, let

alone across the world.The era of the computer, the internet and telephone business, be it telephone banking or ordering

goods removes from us the opportunities of face to face transactions in banking or buying goods. The downside to all

of this is the closure of shops and banks in our local high streets, and increased opportunities for the dishonest dealers

and scammers. This has the consequence of putting us all on edge about who we can trust and leads to a breakdown

of trust in society.Issues of mistrust and people being misled are not a new phenomenon in society. As long ago as

2,800 years the Old Testament prophet Amos spoke about prophets who prophesied for money, and 2,5000 years ago

Ezekiel writes of prophets who misled the people.It is not always easy to be on our guard and evaluate what we are

hearing or reading, and even at the time of Jesus he warned people to be on their guard because of false Messiahs

and false prophets (Mark 13: 22-22). However, when Jesus was sharing conversation with his followers on the evening

before his Crucifixion he said to them ‘I am the way, the truth and the life’ (John 14:5). A book review I was reading

recently commended the living of life within God’s way within the Spirit of the 10 Commandments (Exodus 20) and

Jesus’ Beatitudes (Matthew 5). This would bring about trust in our society as we live within ‘truth’ which has been proven

through the years.There are so many ‘false’ claims as to the way forward for our society which means that we all need

to be ‘on our guard’ and ‘seeking truth’.

Every blessing,

Bryan Ede

Poppies

Thank you so much to all the kind and

generous knitters and makers who have

been industriously creating poppies for the

Flower Festival and the upcoming Royal

British Legion commemoration of the

ending of World War 1.

So many poppies have been produced and

they are so varied and eye-catching that,if

all goes to plan, we are intending to drape

them over the back of Open the Book’s

Carnival float so that they can be really

appreciated - and as an advert for the

Flower Festival at the beginning of August.

Well done and THANK YOU to all those

who have contributed.

A Mystery

Once upon a time there was an egg called Humpty Dumpty.

Now Humpty liked nothing better than sitting on a wall in his

fine clothes. Unfortunately, one day poor Humpty lost his

balance and fell off the wall and broke into pieces.

Well there were these fine King’s soldiers and sturdy men

who tried to put Humpty together again - but couldn’t!

So what happened to Humpty after that…?

Answers please.
