St Mawgan in Meneage Church Daffodil Festival.

Over 10,000 daffodils fill Mawgan Church for the Daffodil Festival, which has taken place this weekend.I visited this morning and the scent was wonderful, and so many different varieties of flower.

It opened Saturday, February 18 and is still open today, Monday, so you still have a chance to see this beautiful 12th Century cornish church filled to the brim with the bright golden flowers. Open today from 10.30 am to 4.30 pm and it is free to enter, tea with home made cakes are also on offer.

The church has a fund to raise money for repairs, which will begin soon . One lovely idea is that we can buy a slate which will go on the repaired roof for £10. In return the slate you buy will be inscribed with a name or message of your choice. As a memorial or token of the present day. A record of these names and inscriptions will be held at the church for the future. I bought two in remembrance of much loved family members, who were particularly fond of this part of Cornwall. If you would like to do the same, there is still time, contact Pauline Arnold Tel 01326 221095.
