To Meet on Moonlit Nights
The Committee of Penzance Old Cornwall Society decided, on Thursday, to hold monthly meetings as usual and that these meetings shall be held on moonlight nights. Recently the society repainted the lettering of the inscription on the Dolly Pentreath monument at Paul and cleaned the granite. There were no fewer than 490 letters in the inscription, which includes a verse from the Bible in English and in Cornish.

Would you like to tell other Societies what you are doing to "gather the fragments"?
For instance, at St Agnes they are recording past and present pubs, preaching houses, road names, coastguard activities and trying to find out a bit more about the famous Bolster Bank
