On Friday, November 7th, the Entertainers, plus special guests, are presenting For the Fallen, a show with songs and sketches from the two World Wars.  Tickets, priced at £5.00 are available from the Post Office, the Surgery or at the door.  The proceeds from this show, which is being staged at the Jubilee Hall starting at 7.30pm, will be split between the Jubilee Hall and towards a bench in memory of Tony Woodforth. All are welcome and invited to bring their own drinks and nibbles, and to wear period dress if they so wish.  Do support this very worthwhile cause; the Entertainers always put on an evening to remember!

Home sweet home and heaven on earth

I put a shout out on the Hub’s Facebook page for people to post what they would say if asked to sum up Mevagissey in a few words. The responses were flattering and heartfelt, ranging from “home sweet home” from a local, to “my dream destination” from a visitor. Whether from near or far, it’s always lovely to hear how much people love this village.

The sound of the sea

“I felt once more how simple and frugal a thing is happiness: a glass of wine, a roast chestnut, a wretched little brazier, the sound of the sea. Nothing else.”

Hello world!

It seems appropriate to have the first blog post of the new site be “hello world”, with its connections back to the very start of social networking.

Today I am starting on rebuilding the Mevagissey Web site embracing the new title of Mevagissey Hub that has been in use for several months now on Facebook, and which better reflects the mood and purpose of the beast.

I’m not entirely sure where I’ll end up, other than in Mevagissey. But I’m sure it will be a fun journey.
