Members of Newquay Towan Blystra Lions recently helped support a local event, with their popular Coconut shy.


The community of St Columb Minor came out in force, as they basked in the sunshine during a special event at the Town’s Recreation Ground.

Organised by the St Columb Minor Residents Association, the event saw hundreds of people attend, who were treated to fun and activities. This included bouncy castles and games for the children, soccer skills workshops run by Newquay AFC, and also creatures big and small from Newquay Zoo.

The whole event was preceded by a special procession from the Church, led by St Newlyn East Band, and danced by children from St Columb Minor Blue School.

Other entertainment included the RAF cadets marching band, and singing from “In Dreams”. Stalls included a beer tent run by St Columb Minor Institute, a Pimms Tent run by The Farmers Arms, and much more besides.

There was also a special low fly-over by the crew of Cornwall Air Ambulance to wow and impress the crowds.
