Awen Ceremony at Duloe Stone Circle  

On Sunday Morning 23rd June Liskeard OCS were honoured to have played a part in the Gorsedh Kernow Ceremony of the Awen at Duloe Stone Circle. To symbolise the passing of knowledge from older to younger members of the Community, we were happy to nominate two elders, two youngsters and two Traffic Controllers to take part in this grand Ceremony.

"The Liskeard OCS Summer Outing this year gave us the opportunity to have a tour of the home of Bishop Trelawny who we sing of at our monthly meetings. Guided by LOCS member Carole Vivian, the history of the house and the family came to life. A superb cream tea and a stroll round the gardens of the Barton ended a perfect afternoon. Many thanks to Carole."

One of the oldest is Crying the Neck, a celebration of the thanksgiving of the harvest steeped in legend and mythology as a fertility rite since crops were first grown. Come along and join in the celebration at Bolitho Farm, Liskeard, Pl14 3GR on Saturday 24th August at 6.30pm.
