45 years of Devoran Ladies

45 years to the day of their inauguration, the Devoran Ladies’ Group held their AGM. Many of the members involved in those early days still have an important role in the group. On March 20th 1973 Sara Cox, Rosemary Crocker, Denise Murdoch, Pauline Beech, Phyllis Rowland, Beryl Cainey, Janet Mcbride, and Doris Palarm met to discuss setting up a support group for the young wives of the parish. It has become a fully ecumenical group that makes a point of welcoming newcomers to the area and supporting the Christian ethic. As the group matured the name changed from ‘Young Wives’ to just ‘Wives’ and more recently ‘Devoran Ladies’ so as to be fully inclusive.

A summer evening enjoying poetry readings

During the past year the group met each month on a regular basis. Although weather interfered with two of their events, the poetry evening on a warm summer evening in Rosemary Crocker’s garden was a great success. Before Christmas the ladies visited the house at Trelissick to have coffee and view the decorations. A coffee morning was held in aid of the parish church fabric fund and talks on Gwennap Pit and also fire safety were enjoyed. As usual the ladies supported the church Summer Fete and the Autumn Bazaar. Special birthdays of 2 members were recognised but the group continues to be active in spite of removing ‘young’ from their title.

Devoran ladies will celebrate their sapphire anniversary by meeting for lunch at the County Arms next month. Wear something blue!
