The Battle for Trevalga is a phrase which people in our area have heard a lot recently. Residents of the Trevalga Estate are fighting attempts from trustees who wish to sell resident’s homes.

Recently, to raise funds and awareness, members of the Battle for Trevalga group held a fete on the estate. Opened by Boscastle and Camelford Councillor Barry Jordan, attendees were led in a two minute silence in honour of Queen Elizabeth II, followed then by a strong statement of support from Scott Mann.

Rev. Heather Aston led prayer and God Save the King before the fun and games could begin. Music, games and excellent food were all on offer. Serena Partrick, a spokesperson for the group said: “We had a game of Guess The Name of the Ram; he was called Gerald and we were surprised more did not guess it! The winner was Mr Ferret who used to work under Claude Peter to maintain the Manor of Trevalga. “People came from Dorset and Hampshire to support us, one of our prizes are heading to Birmingham, and we are sending one of Percival T. Cory’s books all the way to Australia!”

Through the event, £5,010.26 was raised for the group’s “Battle Fund”.
