It was wonderful to see all the new
blooms growing on the K.G.V.
Memorial Walk in the recent Spring
warmth and, talking of new blooms, it
was good to see Tony out and about
on the Walk last week!
There was a big turn-out of existing
and new volunteers on Sat. 1st May
for the Group Work morning in
central Hayle. HIB volunteers
concentrated on the Jubilee bridge
area, including the Bouledrome and
giving very able support were the
Towans Rangers and the W.I. along
Penpol Creek and around Isis
Activities included weeding, pruning,
tidying up and preparing beds for
planting out.
Indeed, the planting of perennials will
start soon and if you are able to help
with that then please email Richard.
Don’t forget that the small boats on
the quay outside Asda have had
some repairs and are being stocked
with veg. plants again this year so
that members of the community can
help themselves when the plants
have matured.

Finally a message from our
chairperson, Richard:
“As with most voluntary bodies, we
can exist only with donations as well
as fundraising. We thank our current
donors, but because of COVID, we
have not been doing any fundraising
activities this year to supplement our
income. If anyone can help or has
ideas to help solve this particular
problem, then do please email me
