Early on I went to check on the lottie and on next door’s plot was this gorgeous poppy.
At midday I met my choir at an Open Studios event where we entertained the visitors and I left in time to go to the inaugural Hurling to Goal Tournament.
In the words of a friend, H, “I absolutely love the sightly bonkers community I am lucky enough to live in. Hurling to goal at Redruth RFC. Demons played brilliantly and narrowly lost in the final!” We love it too. Our town was divided into quarters and H was in the Demons quadrant. We are in the Saints and our team won!
From the programme: “Hurling to Goal’ was described in detail by Richard Carew in 1602. It is a forerunner of rugby with equal numbers on each team, ‘dealing’ the ball when tackled and no forward passing allowed. We’ve been working with pupils from Redruth School to revive our ancient Cornish sport.” Here is the report from Cornwall Live. Do click on – there are some fabulous photos and the whole story is told. Feel free to leave a comment to go back to the organisers. .
