Chairman's blog

5 March 2014

We have survived the battle with the elements but in no way have we won the war. Our defences have been severely tested and as a consequence some places and people have been affected.


I have visited farms where they have had to endure so much. Problems that have mostly been ignored by the media and those living in the large cities.

Day after day they have had to not only put up with the wet but the mud, slurry and the lack of firm ground for their animals to stand on. Fields that should have been ploughed remain sodden, fields that should have had slurry spread on them remain inaccessible and so much winter maintenance work has been put on hold whilst more urgent task have had to be dealt with.

Now hopefully as the days get longer and we are having more dry one’s life will get back to some form of normality.

Today Cornish people all around the world unite by celebrating St Piran’s Day.I will be attending the parade in Truro where I will be joining others who also care passionately about Cornwall.
