YOUR HELP NEEDED

As a lot of you know, I moved to Delabole in 1977, 44 years ago with my ex husband and 10 year old daughter and

I started to immerse myself in village life. I started attending services at St John’s church which I thought, and still

do, is a really beautiful building.

My life, like the church, has changed a lot over the years. I divorced and after time, married Nigel. We had our

marriage blessed in St John’s. We then had our wonderful son Matthew.

The church also had a new lease of life when, with the help of our then new Vicar Sherry Bryan, lots of meetings,

fundraising, grant applications etc. St John’s was reordered. Out went most of the pews (many being carried down

the road to be changed into cupboards, garden seats etc.) and in came comfortable new chairs. A small meeting

room with carpet and a ceiling and storage area above, two new toilets, a small kitchen and a storage room were also

created.

Since then, as well as all the church services, funerals, baptisms, dinner dances, fundraising events and concerts by

many organisations, St John’s has served the village well.

Unfortunately, like myself; health, age, Covid and lock down has really taken its toll and as we have been unable to

have any services or other functions for well over a year now, our poor church is really looking its age. As there has

been no heating, the damp has done a lot of damage but worst of all the roof now needs a lot of repairing which will

cost a lot of money.

Now I come to the most important part. How much ‘do you’

value seeing St John’s in our village? Would you still like to

see it being used as a church for weddings, funerals, small

services and fundraising events?

As I think St John’s is a feature in our village, I now want to ask

the most important question - “what would you like to see

happening in there?”

If you would like to be a part of what happens to St John’s,

please phone me on 01840 212520 or drop me a note into 21

Pengelly.

Thank you, Tricia Hicks.

COUNCIL CORNER from Delabole Parish Council

It is an honor and a privilege to be a Councillor for the new Delabole Parish Council (DPC).

On 18 th May 2021 seven new councillors and two previous parish councillors met for the first time as Delabole Parish

Council with a newly appointed parish clerk and members of the public in attendance; all very exciting.

A Chair and vice Chair were elected unanimously. The council has a new website at www.delaboleparishcouncil.gov.uk

and the clerk can be contacted at clerk@deleboleparishcouncil.gov.uk

All parish councillors are volunteers and undertake activities in their own time, only receiving reimbursement of reasonable

expenses incurred. Being a councillor is a responsible position and in particular the new councillors have a lot to learn

as there are many policies and procedures, rules and regulations to be followed in order to take decisions and spend

public money in the correct and appropriate way. This will be a steep learning curve so please be patient while we settle

into this new role.

All councillors will undertake training to improve their understanding and performance.

Please be aware that neither the clerk nor the councillors will engage in any on line debate i.e. Face Book.

Individual councillors may have their own opinion(s) but they cannot make decisions, take action(s) or spend money

without the approval of the full council.

There is a Parish Council notice board on the verge by the entrance to the playing field where all notices will be posted

for common interest. If you need to contact the council please do so by contacting the clerk or by attending the monthly

meeting, public participation section, where 15 minutes is allowed on the agenda at the beginning of every meeting.

Meeting dates are on the notice board and web site together with minutes and agenda details.

The main areas of parish council responsibility in Delabole are –

The playing field and play park

Footpaths

The War Memorial garden and clock

Planning applications (to make comment to Cornwall Council as necessary)

The cemetery, public toilets and bus shelters

Public areas; some benches, verges and planters

If you have any comments or concerns please contact the clerk.

On Monday 7th June, 8 councillors and the clerk attended the Cornwall Council ‘Code of Conduct’ Training.

At the June meeting, it was resolved to carry out maintenance to the play equipment in the park. You may see workmen

carrying this out, hopefully in the next few weeks.

There was discussion about setting up another Speed Watch group within the village. If you are keen to get involved

with this please contact Cllr Kim Cann, kcann@delaboleparishcouncil.gov.uk or 01840 211706 or the clerk.

The council discussed a proposal to develop some areas of wild flower planting in the playing field at the opposite end

from the play park. If you have any concerns about this please contact Cllr Nickiey Hatch or the clerk.

Delabole Wombles. We thank all the volunteer Wombles who are doing a great job keeping our village clean and litter

free. At the June meeting the council reviewed health and safety policy so if you are planning to do a bit of Wombling

around the village we please request that you speak to Cllr Nickiey Hatch or the clerk for the latest advice.

During the months ahead we hope to keep the community of Delabole updated with DPC activity and engage in public

consultation via this monthly publication, the Delabole Slate.

August deadline for Slate is 10th of July 2021

A Vestry Steward’s Dilemma

Once upon a time there were two Vestry Stewards sitting together at morning worship at Delabole Methodist. Let’s call

them Barbara and Tricia - for those were their names. The appointed preacher for the day was a gentleman from

Camelford - by name, Mr Brian Parkman. Knowing Mr Parkman to be an engaging and inspired preacher, Tricia

appreciated that he might need a glass of water during the service and she’d forgotten to place one by his seat. During

the first hymn, she crept quietly out of the back door and around to the kitchen to collect the water, then stood silently

outside the door at the front of the chapel. By this time the opening prayer had started so she waited patiently, not liking

to interrupt - and waited and waited - it was quite a long prayer.

Meanwhile, Barbara was beginning to get worried, not knowing why Tricia had left the service but suspecting she might

not be well. Barbara exited through the back door, looked around, checked the Sunday School - no Tricia. The

congregation was now wondering what was going on. At that very moment the organ began to play the next hymn as

both stewards re-entered the chapel from doors they hadn’t left by and the congregation stood and sang ‘Jesus thy

wandering sheep behold.’

Delabole School

A very well-respected educator – Sir Mick Waters – often talks about the ‘rear view mirror’

of learning, and in so doing, he is referring to what the learning journey looks like when you

gaze back on it. As we approach the closing weeks of another school year, we cannot help

but cast our minds back to reflect on the journey of our school and its community through

these unprecedented times. When we stare back into the ‘rear view mirror’ what do we see?

The journey which started in March 2020 for all of us has been perhaps one of the most

challenging in the history of British education other than in times of war. It has certainly

changed the very fabric of the way our school operates – its bedrock of routines and systems

– because keeping everybody safe has occupied so much of our time and energy, and forced

us to rethink almost every aspect of the day from the moment children enter the playground,

to the moment they leave. Although we have strived to not impose unnecessary restraints

on our children, there are times when the school has felt, looked and even sounded very

different. There are even times when it has fallen silent.

It sometimes seems as if there has been a heavy price to pay. There are children and staff in our school who have never

experienced a whole school assembly. For over a year, our children have not enjoyed the total freedom of mixing together

in the playground without boundaries. Our teachers, who work so closely together to shape the best learning experiences

and the richest possible curriculum, have not been able to plan and have face to face staff meetings for many months

now. We have not been able to welcome our parents into the school. It has been impossible

to take our children into the community to celebrate those important rites of passage

through the year - such as Harvest, Remembrance and Christmas. Our much-cherished

whole school performances and celebrations with a real audience are a distant memory.

Sometimes it feels like we are sleepwalking and tomorrow we might wake and emerge

from a dream.

Sadly not. As we look back on a period that straddles almost two years of learning, we

have to accept that this has been the reality. So, what keeps us going? Well, the answer

is easy. The gift that every child brings to our door is an incredible ability to live in the

moment. Despite all the challenges, when we look in the ‘rear view mirror’, we have

glimpses of children filled with delight at a box of new books, bursting with curiosity to

identify a minibeast, beaming with pride because they have solved a problem, learned to

ride a bike or swum their first 25 metres. There are memories of smiles, tears, laughter

and frustration and joy and friendship and falling out and making up and taking risks and

being kind and making mistakes and forgiving and learning and learning and more learning.

In the end, no pandemic can take away that raw sense of endeavour that children bring

to a task which excites, inspires and motivates them. In the end, that is why we can think

about the year to come with hope in our hearts.

A Methodist Minister’s View

Sue Cox and the Delabole Team.

I am writing this article a few days before the commencement of the G7 Summit meeting at St. Ives. We have become

aware over the past weeks of the arrangements which have been made to enable this event to happen in a secure and

safe environment. The planning, of course, has been going on for many months to police the event with some 5,000

officers, all of whom have to be briefed and accommodated. Alongside the conference, arrangements have had to be

made for the Worldwide television, radio and newspaper journalists to be able to prepare and release their stories. The

stories will produce the news headlines for a few days, but by the time you read this article things will have moved on

and the newspapers recycled. The costs of all the arrangements will be quite a few million pounds – which investment

we need to hope will have World Wide impact.

Many stories will emanate from the whole experience alongside those which will be on our news bulletins or in the

newspapers. The police, hotel staff and residents will all have a story to tell.

In our Methodist Churches in the month of June we are sharing in Bible Month and this year are looking at Mark’s gospel

in our Bibles. Mark is the shortest of the four gospels and was the first to be in circulation for reading amongst Christian

groups in the era of years 60 or 70 A.D. – about 30 years after the death of Jesus. We are used to reading short passages

from the Bible, but the whole of the Gospel can be read in about 2 hours. Reading the gospel in this way gives one an

overview of the story of Jesus. The challenge to all of you is to give it a try and see what impressions you form reading

a story that is nearly 2,000 years old. Unlike the ‘news’ stories it has not gone out of circulation or out of print – which

is in itself amazing – and has an everlasting significance for us all.

One of the letters in our Bible was written to the Hebrews and in it the writer says, ‘Jesus Christ is the same yesterday,

today, and forever’, see Hebrews 13:8. The teachings of Jesus are still relevant today, and his power experienced by

people. The story of Jesus is enduring and worthwhile exploring.

Every Blessing,

Bryan Ede

(children’s playtime, in Cornish)

Now that summer is truly here, you should be seeing a lot of insects, such

as butterflies, bees, wasps and flies. We sometimes think of insects as a

nuisance because they eat our flowers and vegetables or they can bite or

sting us, but they actually are very important parts of the ecosystem. They

pollinate flowers, eat other insects which are pests to us and some eat waste

plant material. Many insects pollinate plants but we tend to notice bees and

butterflies the most. Without these insects we would have almost no fruit

or nuts to eat or vegetables like beans and peas.

The lifecycle of butterflies is really interesting as they go through many

changes to their body form through their lives.

1. The adult butterfly lays very small eggs on leaves.

2. The eggs hatch into caterpillars, which have soft bodies, six legs and all

they do is eat and grow. When their skin gets tight, they shed their skin,

stretch and then start eating again.

3. When fully grown the caterpillar finds a sheltered place, like under a leaf

or on a stem and then changes into a cocoon or pupa. Its old caterpillar

skin goes hard like a shell, while inside the most amazing thing happensthe

caterpillar turns into a liquid which gradually reforms itself into an

adult butterfly, with wings, long legs and a body with three parts. Nothing

like a caterpillar!

4. When all this rebuilding has finished, the pupa splits and the new butterfly

crawls out. It rests, pumps its crumpled wings out to full size, and then

flies off to find flowers to feed on and a mate. The beautiful, coloured

wings that we love to see are to help find a mate.

Why not take a look at the

children’s competition and

get the chance to put your

own design on the plain

butterfly.

Have fun!

Change at the Chapel

If you’re anything like me, you’re not too keen on change - but as we all know, change happens and somehow or other

we adapt. We’re about to go through a period of change at the village Methodist Chapel.

Vestry Stewards: Barbara Tyson, Alison Gill (who’s remaining as Steward),

Tricia Molloy and Irene Trewin.

Note the tools of the trade to get a service underway: microphone, hymn

numbers, carafe of water and notices to be read out

Change One is very different, in that our dear friend

Barbara Tyson will be moving to live near her daughter,

Sue. What a gap this will leave! Barbara has been our

Church Council secretary and Vestry Steward for many

years. This hasn’t just involved the minute-taking etc that

you would expect, she’s also looked after our Gift Aid,

made sure the First Aid boxes were up to date, sorted

out the microphones and ensured there was a glass of

water for the preacher (wouldn’t want a dry preacher,

would you?). Actually, if there’s room, I’ll include an

anecdote about that somewhere else in ‘The Slate’.

Besides all the normal stewarding jobs, she’s great at

organising, singing, demonstrating, Open-the-Booking,

speech-making and can be relied upon to magic up splits,

cheese scones, cakes, deserts and cooked meals! Are

you sure you want to leave, Barbara?

Change Two is that Rev Bryan is, in Methodist terms, going to ‘sit down’ - which means he’s

planning to retire. Again. I’m not sure how many times this has happened but then he’s just been

needed to step into the breach when a position has needed filling - and he’s always said ‘ Yes’.

As a result of this, including Superintendent of the Circuit, Rev Bryan has had pastoral care of the

chapel in Delabole (which, in case you didn’t know, is the village where he was born) for 15 years.

He has always been there when we’ve needed him, whether it’s been taking a service, chairing

a meeting, leading a Songs of Praise (his knowledge of hymn writers is phenomenal), compering

a concert or making sure that there were car parking spaces when we held a large concert. He’s

been totally committed to his ministerial duties and we do thank him and Sue, his wife, for all

they’ve done and, we hope, continue to do. Do you ever really retire from the ministry? And you’re

not giving up writing for The Slate, are you Bryan?

Rev Bryan Ede

Change Three is Irene Trewin, who is handing on her role as Communion Steward. This is the latest in a long, long list

of tasks she has willingly and prayerfully undertaken. Many of us will remember her mammoth chair-arranging stints

when a service needed different seating arrangements. You may not be aware, but we have half-back chairs, full-back

chairs and arm chairs (check it out next time you’re there). So when it comes to arranging them, there’s a right way and

a wrong way - and Irene has been at chapel on a Saturday cleaning the carpet and then arranging 60+ chairs in the

RIGHT way. Besides that, she’s been a Vestry Steward, Open the Booker, Teen Scene leader, Sunday School teacher

and all round good egg. Perhaps most importantly, she continues to meet with others each week to pray for the

community, the village and beyond. Thank you so much Irene for all you’ve contributed and are still contributing to the

life of the church. You’re an example to us all.

Finally, Change Four, is Tricia Molloy who feels it’s time to share the excitement of being Senior Steward, Vestry Steward,

Property Steward and Health and Safety Steward - I’ve probably left things out - and all at the time she was Chair of

Governors at the school and Chair of the Parish Council. You see the thing is, Tricia, you’re so talented, capable and

know what’s what that, when something needs sorting, you know what to do and who to ask. You’re so full of good ideas

and have the wisdom of Solomon when it comes to finding the perfect path through so many choices and options. I can’t

remember when you took on the role(s) but you’ve definitely been our organiser-in-chief since the last century. Needn’t

think Tricia’s properly retiring through - her new title is Consulting Steward, so that when we’re not sure what to do - ASK

TRICIA.

To all four of you, we say an inadequate but gigantic THANK YOU and well done, good and faithful servants.

I didn’t do terribly well with a photograph of the next in

this series. The shop in question is the bungalow on the

right of the picture or, more accurately, it’s the lean-to

that you can just see on the left side of the bungalow.

This belonged to Mrs. Jasper and it was still in business

at the time of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation but I think

closed down not too many years later. Although I lived

next door, I can’t remember too much about it but I

believe she sold sweets as my mum bought 3 sweet jars

(empty, still got them) from her when she finally shut up

shop.

WORDS OF WISDOM, AS USUAL, NOT MINE!

I recently came across an old quotation that I hadn’t seen for a long time but still amuses me (especially as I had an

elderly Dad myself - 62 when I was 14!)

This was, I think, attributed to Mark Twain although some people reckon that he was not old enough to have written it

at the time the expression was first recorded.

It’s simply this:-

“When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around but when I

got to be twenty one I was astonished at how much he had learnt in seven years!”

The re-acquaintance of this did, however, remind me that I had some time ago, jotted down a few of the ‘sayings’ I have

come across during my life. No doubt they will be familiar to some people. Others will have variations of the same thing,

whilst yet others will have favourites of their own. It would be interesting to hear them!

Here is a selection of mine:-

1. “To those who have orchards will be given apples” (I heard this in Delabole about 30 years ago!)

2. “To have a friend, you must be one” (On a calendar with a picture of a sad looking Scottie dog in father’s office

about 1955)

3. “There’s more to be learnt about real life of the day by reading Charles Dickens than can ever be learnt from

history books” (Origin?)

4. “Look after the corners and the middle will look after itself” (Mother in law)

5. “The poor can’t afford to buy cheap” (Mother in law)

6. “You can lock up from a thief but not from a liar” (An ancient Gran)

7. ‘”There’s none so ignorant as those that don’t know what I’ve just learnt” (A grandchild)

8. “If each before his own door swept, the village would be clean” (A local lady about 40 years ago)

Mid May now but like mid Winter - Let’s hope the sun gets turned on now. I have a feeling it’s going to come good soon.

I.M.B.

Angela Cooper, Rector

This month I would like to share with you a prayer that has

been important to me: it is thought to have been written by,

or at least used by, Sir Francis Drake the 16th century

explorer. A man of his time, he was far from perfect (like all

of us) and did many things that we find reprehensible today,

nevertheless no-one is all bad and, even if you don’t pray,

these words may have something to say to us …

Disturb us, Lord, when

We are too pleased with ourselves,

When our dreams have come true

Because we dreamed too little,

When we arrived safely

Because we sailed too close to the shore.

Disturb us, Lord, when

With the abundance of things we possess

We have lost our thirst

For the waters of life;

Having fallen in love with life,

We have ceased to dream of eternity

And in our efforts to build a new earth,

We have allowed our vision

Of the new Heaven to dim.

Disturb us, Lord, to dare more boldly,

To venture on wilder seas

Where storms will show Your mastery;

Where losing sight of land,

We shall find the stars.

We ask you to push back

The horizons of our hopes;

And to push back the future

In strength, courage, hope, and love.

This we ask in the name of our Captain,

Who is Jesus Christ.

Thank You

‘So who is this Fairy

Godmother?’ you ask. It’s

none other than Barbara

Tyson, playing Harmony

in one of our last village

pantomimes, ‘Robinson

Crusoe’.

The reason for inclusion

is to introduce the fact that

Barbara is ceasing to be

‘The Slate’s’ Treasurer - a

position she’s held for

many years.

So thank you Barbara for

all you’ve done for our

village newsletter and we

wish you all the best as

you make your new home

near your daughter, Sue.

July 2021

From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee,

when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock

that is higher than I. Psalm 61:2

O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my sins

are not hid from thee. Psalm 69:5

Come now, and let us reason together, saith the

Lord: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be

as white as snow; though they be red like crimson,

they shall be as wool. Isaiah 1:18

...Christ died for the ungodly … God commendeth

his love toward us, in that, while we were yet

sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:6b, 8

COVID in Cornwall

While Covid-19 cases remain relatively low in Cornwall, we

are now seeing a sharp rise in case numbers which reflects

the national picture over the past fortnight.

Cornwall Council’s Public Health team is working with Public

Health England South West and our NHS partners to

provide advice where necessary and help stop the spread

of the virus.

Rachel Wigglesworth, Director of Public Health for Cornwall

and the Isles of Scilly, said: “It is vital that people don’t drop

their guard as we enter the summer holiday season and we

all continue to follow the latest public health guidance,

remember ‘hands, face, space and fresh air’, self-isolate

when required, and get the vaccine when you’re eligible to

do so.

“I would also urge everyone to make twice-weekly testing

part of their routine so we can identify cases even when

people have no symptoms.

Rapid Lateral Flow Tests are free of charge and can be

picked up from your local pharmacy or ordered online.

“If anyone does develop symptoms, which include a new

continuous cough, high temperature or loss or change to

their sense of taste or smell, they should self-isolate straight

away and book a test.”

“The Big Lunch”

Trecarne Gardens Street Party, on Sunday June 6th.

To celebrate the easing of lockdown, the

beauty of summertime, and our lovely

neighbourhood, Trecarne Gardens got

together to enjoy a wonderful lunch party

in our cul-de-sac.

Everyone came out with chairs, tables,

music, drinks and amazing food.

“The Big Lunch” is a national event, held

every June, invented by the Eden

project to get communities together. It

certainly was a great afternoon for us.

In jungle of verdant lushness, the garden

expands its limits, invading pathways,

encroaching, spilling over boundaries.

Colours mingle in delicious combinations of

blue with silver, pink, purple and soft greens,

shot with lightning strikes of red and lime.

Voluptuously, untameable, in the summer

sunshine.

Lily pads pile on top of lily pads, hiding pink

jewels of flowers, reflecting in the water.

Scents of sage, thyme and mint drift by

mingling with camomile, lavender and

marjoram, stirring the senses.

Time is lost as fragrant abundance and

colour blur into unforgettable images of our

summer garden.

Bessie Greenfingers - July Garden

All the plants are growing rapidly this month and the

gardens are filling out with lush greenery and beautiful

blooms.

Keep your lawn aerated by pushing your fork part way into

it, all over, to help drainage. Water if the weather is very

dry.

Dead head finished flowers and cut back foliage that has

become too big and floppy. Put in supports for tall plants

where needed.

Pick fruit as it ripens and cut back strawberry runners and

branches on the fruit bushes that are shading out the sun

from the fruit.

In the vegetable bed sow seeds of winter veg and plant out

cabbage, sprouts and broccoli.

Pinch out side shoots from tomatoes and pick the fruits as

they ripen. Cut cucumbers before they are too big and seedy.

Onions and shallots, that are ready, can be lifted and laid

out to dry for storage.

Herbs should be in full swing. Pick some to hang and dry,

to store for winter.

Water all your pots, patio plants and the plants in the

greenhouse or cold frame. Be sure to keep the greenhouse,

or cold frame, well aired.

Most of all spend time to just sit and enjoy your garden.

Bessie.

Congratulations, Sophia Bell-Winfrow!

On raising £550 for the Little Princess Trust. By having over

12inches (30cm) of your hair cut off and donating it to the Trust,

you are enabling them to make wigs for children and young

people who suffer hair loss from treatment for cancer and other

illnesses.

Well done!
