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…
The withdrawal of the Wright Brothers oyster farm business from the Helford and Port Navas quay continues a pace and it is expected that it will be complete by the end of March. All of the oyster cages have now been removed from the river and are being taken away and all the other production and processing equipment will be removed.
Members of the Village Hall Committee have agreed a scheme of works with the representative of the Duchy, that will see the surface of the access road and the quay restored, walls rebuilt, the quay ladder replaced and parts of the quay surface turfed. This work is due to start in early April and should be finished for Easter but during the period of the works, the quay will need to be closed for safety reasons. There will be no effect on access to other properties.
Plans for developing a smaller scale native oyster farm are still being developed but are likely to take some time to come to fruition and we will update you as these progress.
The road through Port Navas was closed today to allow work on a dodgy fallen tree at Point Cottage. With the help of a MacSalvors crane, Mike Comyn and Tony Ellen worked to carefully cut up and remove the tree which was perilously balanced on the Tiptaft’s garage.
Peggy Sheppard has published a second edition of The Story of Port Navas first published in 1994. This edition significantly expands on its predecessor and should be required reading for anyone interested in Port Navas and the surrounding area.
