Porthleven Community Group’s Big Lunch a success

The annual Big Lunch organised by Porthleven Community Group took place on Sunday on the Moors playing field. At first, the was concern the weather would not be kind to the organisers, but after a brief shower during the setting up of the event, the weather turned out lovely.

It was good to see so many families turn up and enjoy the afternoon. During the three-hour event, people were entertained by Porthleven’s own signing choir.  Children could bounce their hearts out on the free bouncy castle.

The Mayor of Porthleven, Cllr Barbara Powell shows off her hula-hooping skills (and yes, she was good).

Anyone who attended had the chance decorate a cupcake with help from the owners of the Twisted Current, with over 70 cupcakes being decorated and eagerly devoured. For those who were more energetic, you could learn or brush-up on your Hula-hooping skills.

Also held during the event was the postponed duck race with 100 ducks being launched in to the river to help raise money for the skate park. This raised over £120.

Well done to all who helped make this happen.
