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.
