On 22 June a group of our members travelled to Altarnun, where initially they enjoyed an excellent lunch in the Church Hall before splitting into two groups to undertake arranged visits. One group received a very informative guided tour of Altarnun Church under the direction of Tony Naylor, Churchwarden, and the other visited Wesley Cottage, where John Hogarth and his colleagues not only undertook a fascinating guided tour, incorporating a resume of its history, but all kindly provided welcomed tea and cakes. The day, in fine weather, was enjoyed by all in a most splendid Cornish setting.
Kind regards Mike Atkins
