News April 2017

Our Annual Parochial Church Meeting, followed by a brief PCC meeting,
will be held on Tuesday 25 April at 7 pm, in the church.
Everyone whose name is on the Electoral Roll of the church is entitled to attend.
We are required to elect representatives to Deanery synod, to elect members of the Parochial Church Council, to appoint sidesmen, and
an independent examiner for our annual accounts.
While we are still without a priest, the meeting has also to
elect a lay chairman.
The financial statement, an annual report on the church’s
year, and a report on ‘the fabric, goods and ornaments’
of the church are included in the agenda.
The PCC which follows the annual meeting will elect churchwardens, deal with any other matters of urgency, and will aim to set up, as we did
last year, a small working party to organise the fete and any other agreed fundraising activities.
Our church clock will be repaired – Cumbria Clocks will be undertaking the restoration and will also arrange for any necessary repairs to stonework etc. The insurance will cover the clock repair and the generous donations
we’ve received will pay for the remainder.

PCC report
We agreed that for the time being there would continue be no early service
on the fourth Sunday: a new priest will decide how our services are
arranged in due course.
We are required now to have a Safety officer: Margaret Cortis has
offered to take on the role for a year, for which the PCC is grateful!.
The recent quinquennial report noted the need for urgent maintenance and repair of gutters, roof valleys and downpipes. The PCC has agreed to
participate in the tree survey planned by the parish council, which
should identify any churchyard trees in need of attention.
We are hugely grateful to Canon Ken, our Rural Dean, for chairing the
meeting and for his support and help during the vacancy: he acts as our
parish priest until an appointment is made.
Tower news We have a new recruit to our band of ringers – we are
delighted to welcome Andrew, an experienced ringer , to our tower.
A visiting team will be ringing here on Sunday 2 April at 2.30 pm, for a
round 40 minutes.
More visitors:
Launceston Old Cornwall Society are planning a visit to our church and
village on 12 April in the afternoon, for a ‘talk and walk’ followed by a cream tea.

Award-winning Italian concert performer Andrea Dieci is without doubt one of the world’s finest classical guitarists. A multiple international prize-winner, he has also attended masterclasses with such names as Julian Bream and was described in the New York Times Herald as “an impressive guitarist”.

He has performed extensively for prestigious music societies and festivals worldwide, with appearances across Europe, in the USA, and Central and South America, Africa and Asia. Credits include the Spoleto Festival of Two Worlds, the Festival of the Guitar Foundation of America, and the Singapore International Festival, and festivals in Athens, Istanbul, London, Los Angeles, Madrid, Milan, and Tokyo – among others.

He has premiered several works composed for him by contemporary composers (including Cornwall’s own Ben Salfield) and his performances have been broadcast by major radio and television companies throughout Europe. Vatican Radio recently broadcast a series of programmes dedicated to him.

Andrea Dieci has recorded CDs for MAP, Nuova Era, Bèrben, DotGuitar and Brilliant Classics. He is the only guitarist to have recorded the complete works for solo guitar of Heitor Villa-Lobos, Toru Takemitsu (awarded the “Golden Guitar” 2005 at the X International Guitar Congress of Alessandria as the best CD of the year) and Hans Werner Henze.

In addition to being in demand as a performer, Dieci is also a renowned teacher. He has presented masterclasses at important music institutions in Italy, France, Switzerland, Spain, United Kingdom, Poland, Greece, Bulgaria, Brazil, Mexico, USA, Singapore and Japan. He is currently based at the Vecchi Conservatoire in Modena, also teaching yearly masterclasses at the Regondi Guitar Academy in Milan.

Always popular in Cornwall, this short series marks his fifth visit here!
