Botallack Country Fair set to return after year break
The Botallack Country Fair is set to return to the Botallack Count House this summer following a year’s break.
The fair will help mark the 40th anniversary of the South West coast path and several local schools and children’s groups have been involved in creating a mural to celebrate the occasion.
Each of the four panels represents scenery which you would find around the coast path and will be displayed in the count house at the fair.
Jane Haward, from the organising committee, said: “We got the children to do collages to show what the coast path looks like. I thought it would be a nice thing for kids to do art for, to get them engaged with the community. They are really imaginative. We are hoping to do another one on the day.”

This year’s fair is also encouraging children to learn more about nature and wildlife around Penwith.
As well as the usual stalls, raffle and refreshments, included in this year’s fair is a dog agility course.
Young farmers from around west Cornwall will be bringing their animals along for fairgoers to see.
After ten years on the organising committee, Mrs Haward is hoping that the traditional country fair offers a variety of events which will entice visitors, with basket-making, blacksmithing and children’s pond dipping all on the agenda.
She added: “If you want a low-key country fair that shows local crafts that are quite specific to west Cornwall then come along.”
The fair is held at the Botallack Count House between 12 and 5 on Sunday September 1.
