COUNCIL CORNER Delabole Parish Council

At their April meeting the council received feedback from the Camelford Community Network Panel meeting on 29th

March. This included a report from the Police who are experiencing a serious lack of manpower due to Covid, an update

on local health services from The Veor Group, two road updates about Community Network Highways and the Camelford

by pass. Good progress is being made on the 20mph scheme across all the villages in North Cornwall.

The Parish councillors discussed -

• The cost of maintaining the public toilets due to vandalism and misuse, repairing the lights and hand washing

facilities and the possibility of introducing a charge for the use of the toilets. This is under review.

• The invitation to send a PC representative to the Jubilee parade in Truro was declined. The arrangements for

our village Jubilee celebrations were noted.

• A request from the Christmas Lights group to facilitate the erection of poles along the inside wall of the playing

field extend the lighting programme was approved.

• It was agreed to continue with the Traffic Warden contract for another year.

• To purchase and adopt a ‘Scribe’ cemetery management programme which will help the Clerk to maintain

records, manage requests and produce the necessary funeral documents.

Full minutes from April 12th meeting can be viewed on the notice board.

The Annual Parish Meeting will be on Tuesday 10th May at 6.30pm before the regular PC meeting at 7pm. There was

no Parish Meeting last year due to Covid and the ‘newness’ of the Parish Council. Everyone is welcome to attend.

The usual contact for our Parish Clerk is 07869 725450 or clerk@delaboleparishcouncil.gov.uk

Deadline for the Slate 10th May

Moore’s

My earliest memories of what

is now ‘Hair Heaven’ was as a

tailor’s shop which belonged to

the Moores. Mrs Moore was

my teacher at school and I

distinctly remember her

teaching us Folk Dancing -

which was a BIG THING in

Delabole in the 1950s. It was

so popular that there was a

weekly session held at the

Liberal Club, where you paid

3d (thrupence) to be taught by

Mr Warren and, I think, Miss

Lloyd (another teacher at the

Primary School). I could well

be wrong. If I am, please write

in and correct my recollections.

Back to the tailor’s shop -

there was a long table inside

on which bolts of fabric could

be unrolled and a large pair of

tailor’s shears used to cut

required amounts or pattern

Moore's shop (on the right, with the overhang) in 1927

pieces. I think wool and

when the Prince of Wales came to Delabole.

sewing accessories were also

sold but the thing that intrigued

me most about the shop was the overhang and frontage - it was unique in the village and it had a name: Under Moore’s.

At one stage there was a village notice board on one of the walls where people booked the date that they intended to

use for their event so that there was no overlap with other organisations. However, when Tricia and I were putting together

a booklet about the village for use at a Flower Festival, we interviewed Mrs Norah Hore about her memories of the spot

and she said, ‘It would be full of boys from Camelford and P.C. Ebbett, who lived opposite in the Police House, would

come across the road and find out what was going on. You’d hide away in behind so you couldn’t be seen!’

There have, of course, been many more occupants of the shop since those days. How about someone taking up the

story from the 50s and bringing it rather more up to date?

Termyn Gwari Fleghes

(Children’s Playtime, in Cornish)

This month you should really be able to see the world turning towards

summertime. Trees will be coming into leaf everywhere, summer birds will

be here, even the swifts. The insects, which depend upon warm weather

and plenty of flowers for pollen and nectar, will be breeding very quickly, to

make the most of the summer.

Also appearing will be the insects which feed on other insects, the hunters.

Some of the most interesting of these predatory insects are the dragonflies.

They are fascinating creatures with a very interesting life cycle. Like all

insects they go through several life stages, changing their body shape and

life style dramatically at each stage.

The adults (which we are most likely to see) can be up to 4 inches(10 cms)

long. They have 4 shimmery clear wings, are very strong fliers and can fly

forwards and backwards. They hunt by sight and they can turn their necks

to see prey more clearly. If you move near a dragonfly they will turn to look

at you as well! They hunt from a favourite perch, then will fly around their

territory looking for food then come back to the perch. They like water but

will often appear in your garden or hunting along country lanes. Bigger

dragonflies are fierce enough to hunt and catch wasps with ease. They

only live one summer though, when the first cold of autumn comes they

will die. The eggs they lay over ponds in the summer will survive in the

safety of the pondweed and mud and when they hatch they will live in the

pond for up to 5 years as a larva called a nymph. The nymphs are also

fierce hunters and will catch tadpoles, water beetles and even small fish.

One spring, when they have grown large enough, they climb up a plant

stem out of the water, the nymph skin splits and out climbs an adult

dragonfly. Once its wings have expanded and are hard and dry, off it flies

to hunt and mate, to start the cycle again.

Dragonflies can be almost anywhere, so keep

your eyes open! They are very beautiful and

a close up photo, if you can get one, will be

amazing.

There are 57 varieties of dragonfly in this

country, so there are plenty to look out for!

A Methodist Minister’s View

The Ukrainian situation is the main item in our television news bulletins and newspapers at the present time and will be

for the coming months as the situation unfolds. Amongst all the news stories of destruction, devastation and death

however there are good stories of the ways in which people are responding to the crisis through helping with the refugee

situation on the front line as they are in Poland and Moldova for instance. Also impressive has been the response to

the appeals for funds through such organisations as the Disasters Emergency Committee and the offers of

accommodation for those who have left the war-torn country.

You may have noticed that Royal Mail are now franking our letters reminding us of the on-going appeal for funding. All

that most of us can do is to continue with our giving and our prayers for the people of Ukraine.

I have a concern that the emphasis on Ukraine may have a serious impact on the appeals for funds of other organisations.

One Week in the month of May is used by Christian Aid for its major funding appeal and this year Christian Aid Week

starts on Sunday, 15th May. Of course, Christian Aid is very much involved with the Ukraine situation but also has an

on-going programme of work in many parts of the World through the numerous projects which it supports, enabling

communities to develop by the provision of basic facilities and education programmes. Imagine living in a village without

running water available or having to make the most of a small parcel of land to produce food for the family with very

basic tools. Such things are the realities of life, still, for many people in our 21st Century World. For some these realities

are compounded by the impact of climate change. Many of the projects supported by Christian Aid and other

development agencies need funding over an extended period of time to realise their goals and any loss of funding has

consequences for those who live in desperate situations which we would find difficult to tolerate.

I am also conscious that we have organisations in this county and country which need on-going funding such as our Air

Ambulance and the Cornish Hospices. All of this faces us as we wonder what the future holds for us with increasing

energy and food costs. I can only ask you to think on these things and respond as you are able.

Every blessing,

Bryan Ede

Delabole School

What does it actually mean to have an Enquiry curriculum?

We see ourselves fundamentally as guardians of childhood and our aim at Delabole school is to ‘unlock’ the natural

dispositions for learning that children possess and their amazing capacity to live beautifully in the present moment. Their

curiosity, sense of wonder and their spirit of adventure are the catalysts for our curriculum, and we teach them that the

most important element of learning is not always knowing the answer, but actually asking the questions.

And so, no matter what their starting points, from the moment children enter our school, we invite them to connect with

the world by looking closely – very closely – and by wondering and questioning. They learn about themselves first through

the experiences and the relationships that are the closest to them, and then gradually, like growth rings on a tree, we

lay down knowledge each year through increasingly complex encounters with the world, so that by the time they leave

us in Year 6, they have developed a world view and care enough to want to make a difference.

We cannot know at the age of 7 or 10 what a child will become and how their life journey will develop, but we do know

that there are no limits to the knowledge they can accumulate along the way; knowledge that could be the beginning of

becoming a Scientist, an Artist, an Author, a Linguist. Our core responsibility is to plant the seeds of that knowledge so

that children learn through ‘Being’ any of these things, moment by moment, in the present.

This term, if your Reception child returns home to tell you about Luke Howard - ‘The Namer of Clouds’ - they are exploring

‘Being a Meteorologist’. Year 2 and 3 children may talk to you about Leonardo Da Vinci because they are ‘Being’

Scientists, Artists and Inventors as well as Historians. Year 4 and 5 children are following the majestic journey of a river

whilst ‘Being’ Geographers and Year 5 and 6 children will talk to you about Isambard Kingdom Brunel because they are

‘Being’ Historians. Each and every one of them are learning about great visionaries under our umbrella value of

‘Aspiration’, because our future depends on young people who can see the world differently and navigate a way through

all the challenges we anticipate. We want them to ask the biggest questions of our time and know no limitations to the

possibilities they can bring.

But their scribes and Pharisees murmured... Why

do ye eat and drink with publicans and sinners?

Luke 5:29-30

gone to be a guest with a man that is a sinner.

Dominic Fairman Cornwall Councillor St Teath & Tintagel Division

Most of my division (with the exception of Tintagel) has for the last 12 months been caught up in a moratorium on planning

applications imposed by Natural England, who now require all new developments in the River Camel catchment area

to demonstrate that they are “phosphate neutral” before planning permission can be granted.

As somebody who has lived and farmed in the catchment for over thirty years and having worked closely with the

Westcountry Rivers Trust over that time, I am sadly aware of the deterioration of water quality and on one level I support

Natural England in taking steps to address the issue. Currently in England only 14% of rivers are in good ecological

condition and 0% are free of chemical contamination – a truly shocking state of affairs.

There are two main sources of phosphates in our river systems – agricultural run-off (both soil and fertiliser) and sewage

from both developments and sewage works.

My frustration is that this local moratorium is indiscriminate and is currently holding up new affordable housing in the

area, while farmers are currently offered voluntary grant schemes to improve diffuse pollution, and South West Water

is allowed to discharge raw sewage into the catchment whenever they are unable to cope with volume with impunity.

This should only apply during high rainfall events, however data released by the Rivers Trust shows that in Delabole at

the head of the catchment, South West Water discharged sewage into the river nearly 50% of every hour of the day

from two storm overflows.

Whilst we all know that it rains quite a bit in North Cornwall - this cannot be justified. What is more, there is currently no

identified solution to the new Natural England requirements and as our housing crisis deepens, we remain unable to

deliver new affordable housing across a wide area.

Unfortunately, the government has recently rejected a Lord’s amendment to the upcoming Environment Bill which would

have forced greater and faster action by our water companies and so this problem is likely to be with us for some years

to come.

I hope later this year to organise a Town Hall event to investigate the issue and bring together all of the agencies involved.

This will be open to all Town and Parish Councillors as well as residents from all of the parishes around Camelford,

Bodmin and Wadebridge.

Local Information - stuff to cut out and keep

Delabole Hospital Car Service

This service has been in operation since 1986. It is open

to any resident of Delabole who needs transport to attend

a hospital, surgery or clinical appointment.

It is a pre-booked door to door service which is arranged

through the coordinator, Patricia Hicks, on 01840 212520.

With reference to increases in motoring costs, we have

reviewed the charges. The new prices will be effective from

1st May 2022. The client pays the driver on the day of

appointment and is also responsible for any parking fees.

In order to keep the charges to the client as low as

possible, the car service tops up the payment as shown

in the accompanying table.

The service is reliant on donations and if you feel you

would like to make a contribution, please contact Ann

Hopkins on 01840 212322. In order to continue this

valuable service we need to recruit more volunteer

drivers. If you feel you can offer some of your time, please

contact either of the above. We look forward to hearing

from you.

Ann Hopkins, Treasurer.
