AFTER a highly successful event this year, the annual meeting of the Gunnislake Festival will be held on November 18 and the committee is welcoming new blood.

The festival, now firmly established as part of the summer scene in South East Cornwall, showcases local musical and artistic talent, and celebrates the rich history of the Tamar Valley.

Anyone interested in contributing to the festival is warmly invited to attend the meeting which starts at 7.30pm in Gunnislake Public Hall.

Any contribution to the festival, from organising a whole event to volunteering to run a stall, selling raffle tickets or making teas for an hour or two is a valuable contribution to the event and to the community.

For more information, contact Gill Pengelly on 01822 833752 or Dorothy Kirk on 01822 832062.
