Details will be available at the Coffee Morning on June 1 and we are hoping to deliver personal invitations to as many of Brentor Parish as is practical in early June

If you have any questions in the meantime please email

We will be holding a photographic competition during the afternoon tea with the following categories that we announced earlier in the year

  1. "Clouds”
  2. “Black/White”
  3. “Patterns”

We thank you for your support and understanding.

    Villages in Action – Help! I think I’m a Nationalist!

    This event is now sold out

    Don't forget your tickets!

    Saturday 18th March 2023 7.30pm start at Brentor Village Hall

    Who am I?  Where do I belong?  And who should I vote for? Cornwall is at a tipping point.  House prices soar, the population shifts, tensions rise.  Some people see it as a separate nation, whilst others see it as a prime holiday destination and playground for the rich.  Seamas Carey is confused.  He is desperately trying to understand.  He’s watched a wave of gentrification sweep through his rural hometown.  There’s nowhere to live, yet second homes stand empty.  He wishes Cornwall was more welcoming and inclusive, but watches “up country” money sow division and suspicion.  Could closing borders and nationalism be the answer?  Where’s the line between pride and power?  What happens when it all goes too far?

    Seamas needs help…he needs your help!

    Suitable for 16+ years.  Tickets £13 available to book in advance online at:


    Or call HELEN ON 01822 810412
