Children's wildlife murals for fair
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 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 asked the children to do collages to show what the coast path looks like.

"I thought it would be a nice thing for children 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 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 noon and 5pm on Sunday.
