Beating The Bounds 2016

BEATING THE BOUNDS

Sunday 1 May 2016 – Rogation Sunday

After last year’s very successful ‘beating the bounds’ of Veryan parish we’re going to do it again this year. The younger [and fitter] walkers and runners will tackle the whole route, but most of us will probably opt for the second stage of the walk we began last May.

Last year a goodly group walked from Pendower to Beruppa, along the boundary between Veryan and Ruan. This year we start at Beruppa and walk to Hay Barton [it’s around 3-4 miles, mostly off-road].

Beating The Bounds 2016

Times

Dedicated walkers and runners leave West Portholland at 8 am [walkers] or 9 am [runners].

Everybody else will leave Beruppa at 11.30 am after a short service led by Fr Doug [cars can be left here]

Route

The route will be clearly marked and maps will be provided. We aim to reach Hay Barton at around 1 pm for lunch [we’re still working on this but refreshments may be available ]

Cars will take drivers back to Beruppa, or make your own arrangements if you want to carry on walking [Hay to West Portholland is around 5 miles].

There will be a barbecue at Pengelly Farm, West Portholland, from around 5 pm.

There’s no charge, and we hope that lots of you will want to join in. We hope to raise some funds to help the Cornwall Historic Churches Trust, which has provided substantial grants recently to make possible the restoration of the windows at both Veryan and Ruan churches, and to enable Veryan to install the new heating system. The Trust relies mainly on local fundraising for its income, and we feel that it’s time to say thank you by giving something back.

More information and maps will be available nearer the date: you can check the Veryan church website [www.veryanchurch.org.uk] or contact Barry Pound [501741] or by email on bazzapound@hotmail.com or Christine Edwards [501727] or by email on c.edwards531@btinternet.com
