7th September 2019. The Esedhvos Festival of Cornish Culture took place in St Just and the volunteers from NCI Cape Cornwall were invited to have a stall there.
The Esedhvos Festival of Cornish Culture is a celebration of Cornish language, music, song, dance and poetry, culminating in the annual Gorsedh Kernow blue robed bardic ceremony at St Just Plen and Gwari. The local National Coastwatch station at Cape Cornwall were invited to have their stall there alongside other Cornish interest stalls to promote their vital work and to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the charity.
The stall proved very popular and helped raise the profile of the station and the charity as well as recruiting two potential watchkeepers. Thanks go to Pete Munday, Hugh Thomas and Pete Winterson who erected the stall (and took it down afterwards) and to Cape Cornwall members Elizabeth Hemphill, Jonathan Rothwell, Richard Saynor (Station Manager),Tessa Skola, Graham Tucker, Jennifer Tuson, and Ian Watling who manned the stall throughout the day.
