In Cornwall, as credit cards devour January’s pay cheque and daffodils break cold ground, we turn our minds to St Piran’s Day and marchin’!
On behalf of Truro City Council and Truro Old Cornwall Society, and with the support of the Dean and Chapter of Truro Cathedral, may I invite you to join us for a short procession through Truro to celebrate St Piran and the values of harmony with nature, good relations with one and all, equality and justice, which he, in his symbolic perpetuity, has come to represent – modern Cornwall in a very traditional way!
We will muster as usual at St George’s Road to depart at 1pm. The route will follow its normal course, through River Street, St Nicholas Street and Boscawen Street, turning at the War Memorial to King Street and arrive at High Cross. We will be joined by several schools who are working with Truro artist, Charlotte Davis, to celebrate St Piran creatively.
It would be great if you could join us for the march before we all sink our teeth into a pasty supplied by Proper Cornish, of Bodmin.
As usual, Old Cornwall Society banners will be very welcome - nothing adorns Trurra's streets so well as a good turn-out of banners.
Would you please let us know if you are coming by e-mailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
