Christmas Coffee Morning 2005 « · »

The traditional Port Navas Christmas Coffee Morning took place on November 26th. It was a lovely sunny morning with snow still on the ground.

The Village Hall was packed as usual. Tiffa’s French walnuts sold out almost immediately and there was a brisk trade in cakes and Christmas cards.

Dollar Bruton « · »

Dollar Bruton of ‘Shearwater’ Port Navas.


I would like to thank everyone who attended Mum’s funeral on 22nd April – and for all their generous comments, letters, cards, emails and telephone calls. I organised the day as she had asked and I am certain she appreciated the presence of people from Port Navas and beyond – both at her funeral and the Reception afterwards at the Village Hall.

A special thanks to the Reverend Robin Thomas who conducted the service as she had requested and who knew Mum from our arrival in Port Navas in 1947.

The collection raised £400 in Mum’s memory and has been forwarded by Keith Penrose to the Stroke Association – the national charity which helps in the prevention and treatment of strokes.

The two photographs are of Mum as a baby in 1913 and Mum with her great friend Arthur Rendle in March 2005  (taken by Patsy Loake of ‘Rocky Waters’).
