The Memorial Walk looks pretty good. Note the lovely red of the Cornus Alba in the distance
A late frost seen by Carnsew Pool
Bob Lloyd's project on Carnsew Road looks great. The grass is manicured.
Our volunteers have started work on repainting and refurbishing the benches throughout the town. This is one of two on Station Hill.
Never too soon for Hayle in Bloom volunteers to get going
Chris Stumble's fish are doing well
London Planes line the Memorial Walk
Our Monkey Puzzle tree is growing fast
15 bird boxes were installed on the Railway Walk
This tree had honey fungus and died
The cold weather killed this Cornish Palm
The Cornus Alba had their 5-yearly haircut
The Forsythia brings beautiful colour
By counting the rings on the tree that had to be removed we can see that it was planted just after the Memorial Walk was opened in 1936.
Penpol Terrace is looking colourful
Terry English makes armour and props for the movies so we were not surprised when, having asked him to make us a model engine house, he came up with a steam engine too.
It all moves and will be a feature of our World Heritage Site flower bed on Penpol Terrace.
Hayle is part of the Cornwall and West Devon World Heritage Site because of our role in making steam engines and having the primary harbour supporting tin and copper mining in West Cornwall.
And here's the crew (including a 1950's police motorcycle)
On Sunday June 3rd, Hayle in Bloom presented the town with its annual Blooming Hayle celebration. Of course, this year it was Jubilee themed and we had a fabulous time. Dozens of charities raised money and thousands of people turned out for the event which included parades, marching bands and lots of entertainment. In the evening we had Hayle's first firework display for a decade - to great acclaim.
