Trevethan House: Community Supported Agriculture

As an indicator of the growing interest in community-based farming, the Trevethan Community Farm project is holding a public meeting in Mills Hall, Fore Street, Carharrack TR16 5QS on Sunday 4th September at 5:00 p.m.  The aim is to let local people find out more about the project, and to encourage them to get involved.  The farm has a special interest in rare breed pigs, and has its own website:

Unwanted furniture and electrical goods

The British Heart Foundation is happy to accept unwanted furniture and (working) electrical items.  All these items will be sold through their Furniture & Electrical Store at 5 Market Street, Falmouth TR11 3DB.  BHF offers free collection of unwanted items – collection can be arranged by calling 0844 248 9181, or by booking online at

The leaflet advertising this service says “Please don’t be disappointed if we are unable to accept items for reasons of safety or quality.  Free collection on small items is at the discretion of the Store Manager.  Our van drivers will make the final decision on any donations collected.”

Electrical items destined for BHF can also be dropped in at Currys and PC World stores (but see for items that they cannot accept).

Printer cartridge recycling

I have confirmed that Constantine school will accept used ink jet printer cartridges for recycling.  Any money raised as a result will go to a local charity.  Cartridges can be delivered to the school secretary’s office during school hours.  As it will be some weeks yet before the school is open again, I’ll post a reminder about this at the start of term!
