PEN annual general meeting 11AM Saturday 21st August at Redwing Gallery, Wood St. Penzance

It is a week to go until Penzance based charity Penwith Environment Network’s (possibly 24th?) annual general meeting. Traditionally meetings were held in The Dolphin pub, and nowadays Redwing Gallery is PEN’s kind host.

Come along to renew memberships, meet new people interested in carrying PEN forward, and celebrate all that PEN has achieved so far.

“Spirit of the Trees” exhibition

Thanks to Ros & Peter, this exhibition starts today, Saturday 12th September, upstairs at Redwing Gallery, Wood St. Penzance.

A mixture of 2D and 3D artwork is on display, and the exhibition runs for a whole month. The gallery proprietors are donating all entry fees (£10 per entry) to PEN.

Hedge laying: boundary complete!

A group led by Jason Applebee from Cornwall Wildlife Trust recently finished laying a hedge along a the edge of Millennium Woods. This was a follow up to the work they started on the hedge last year and the year before. Thanks everyone, for braving the wild weather and completing such a fine hedge habitat.

Hedgelaying in Millennium Wood, Tuesday 20th March

Next Tuesday, 20th March, there will be the first installment of green infrastructure input for the public space of Millennium Wood, from Cornwall Council using European regional development funds.

There is an opportunity to get involved in laying hedges, and instruction will be given, though tools are not provided. Therefore a sharp billhook or axe, plus pruning shears/ loppers and gloves, etc., would equip anyone wanting to learn. The leader/facilitator has also asked that participants bring eye protection.
