Porthleven Community Group and the Big Lunch

On Sunday, the Porthleven Community Group organised Porthleven’s own Big Lunch on the Moors. The weather gods were very kind by providing clear blue sky for the entire event. The event was opened by the Mayor of Porthleven and then Porthleven’s own and very unique Signing Choir started the day off. It was a very informal affair with families just relaxing in the sunshine.

Many of the catering business in Porthleven kindly provided food to be shared by the community. The business which donated food are: Amelie’s, Sea Drift, Atlantic Inn, Kota Ki, The Square, Corner Deli and Blue Haze.

Porthleven’s fisherman association lent one of their large gazebos to give a little shade if required. Porthleven Town Council kindly provided a grant to help with the costs like the free face-painting.

Much merriment was had during the many games of rounders, in which both adults and children joined in. All the children who participated each got a medal to remember the day.

Massive credit and a well done should be given to the community group who organised the day. This group is going from strength to strength in what is does. I really enjoy working with them, and it just shows when people get together things can be achieved that are of benefit for all the community.
