Port Navas Quay

The Duchy of Cornwall has granted the Port Navas Village Hall Management Committee a Licence for Access to Port Navas Quay. The intention is that the Quay be available for use by members of the general public for quiet recreation defined as access on foot without vehicles:

  • For the purposes of exercise and the general appreciation of the amenity of the area
  • For recreational crabbing by line

The agreement further permits the use of the Quay for the annual Port Navas Regatta and such other events as may be approved by the Duchy.

Save the Children Trek

Very sad to report cancellation of the Save the Children Trek (apart from Sheila, Carol and Lin who refused to be beaten by the weather). But a splendid tea was enjoyed by all – squeezed into the Port Navas Village Hall but none the worse for that.

Bluebells and Cream Teas at Calamansac

The sun shone and a group of walkers, led by Tiffa, wandered freely through Calamansac woods enjoying the breath-taking display of bluebells. Tea and scones were waiting for us at the house, prepared and served by Margaret, Mary and Lucie. One visitor remarked, as he sat down on the bench outside, “This is the most stunning location I have ever eaten a scone”. Thank you to the Green family.  More photos…
