South Petherwin Great War Centenary Booklet
The booklet that commemorates the World War One fallen from South Petherwin has now been published and will be delivered along with the next Parish Magazine to every household within the Parish. It is a great read providing a homage to those brave men that gave their lives in service for their country. A lot of research and effort has been undertaken by Peter Bailey to bring this to publication and is deserving of a special mention. It is hoped to further commemorate the WW1 centenary with a further event later in the year.
A very special presentation is planned for those attending Launceston Show, Kennards
House, on this the centenary year of the First World War. South Petherwin World War
recently published book Remembering South Petherwin's Fallen...to the show president Phil Warren, local butcher and business man. The book details the lives of the parishes young men who never returned from military service. The names are recorded on the parish war memorial and the majority of people no longer remember them. Peter Bailey and Roger Pyke compiled the stories hoping they will connect with local people 100 years on with these young men.
The book and its contents will be on display at Launceston Show .

Beacon Wind Turbine Appeal
The appeal for the Wind Turbine at the Beacon has been successful against the wishes of many Parishioners. The full details can be found here at the Online Planning page.
10 Years of the Parish Website
Not only has the Parish Magazine been running for ten years but this very website celebrates its tenth year having been established in April 2004. Again Phil Parsons was involved this time through the Parish Plan and I (Roger Pyke) suggested that a way of publicising the plan would be through a website. Little did I realise that the site would still be running after all these years and being popular as well. Thank you to all that have helped with keeping me informed on all parish matters.
