CHOIR AT LANDRAKE CHURCH
28 Apr 2024
Join us in St Michael's Church, Landrake, at 7.30pm on Sunday 28th April, to raise funds for the window appeal. In 1686, a boy who was baptised in the church became Lord Mayor of London. This was Sir Robert Geffrye, the 'Dick Whittington of Landrake' who was a member of the Worshipful Company of Ironmongers, still linked to the village today. Come and enjoy our 'worshipful company' in this lovely and intersting church. Tickets £7.50 on the door. Book in advance at Landrake Stores or email email@example.com. Finger buffet (included) and raffle.

PHIL CARRIGAN'S HERMIE BOOKS
From 10 Oct 2024 to 25 Dec 2024
Our multi-talented musical director is also an author and has published several lovely well-illustrated stories - even including Polperro Fishermen's Choir and the Wreckers transformed into rather naughty singing black bunnies in 'Honey Bee Meadow'! Phil has written a lot of stories about Hermie, the cute Miniature Schnauzer who sometimes sleeps through our rehearsals. As usual he gets up to mischief in the books which include 'Hermie at the Beach' and 'Hermie's Big Date'. Click on the link below for full details.
