After a hiatus of 3 years, St Minver has a Women’s Institute once again – but this time it’s slightly different.
The Football Club continues to go from strength to strength again this season as the 1st team are having another fine season and are currently joint 3rd in the East Cornwall Premier League. It is going to be a busy few months for them as they still have half of their games to be played. The 2nd team have focused on youth development this season under the management of Dan Haynes and are progressing nicely in the Duchy League.
As you may know, the St Minver Lowlands Parish Council have supported the setting up of a Registered Charity as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation (CIO) called St Minver Community Hub, with a view to creating a Community Hub that is the centre of the community and for the benefit of all.
Planning permission has been obtained and the St Minver Community Hub are now able to start raising funds. A total of £850,000 is needed.
My reason for becoming involved is that, three years ago my daughter was killed in a road traffic collision in Trewiston Lane.
We are really pleased to announce that the Hub (a Community Interest Company) has now became a Registered Charity.
The Digital Workshops are friendly, informal, interactive sessions designed to help people develop their confidence and skills in using digital technology.
St Minver Football Club is very active and runs 2 teams with around 40 players and had a record breaking season in 2016/17 when we won an unprecedented treble including the Cornwall Junior Cup, KMD League Cup and we were crowned Duchy League Premiership Champions.

1st St Minver Scout Group offers a fun filled programme of activity and progressive training for young people, boys and girls, from the age of six through to 18.
An afternoon cream tea fundraising event was held on Friday the 12 July to raise funds for the St Minver Community Hub. As well as raising much needed funds, the occasion provided an opportunity to share information with the public about the plans for the Community Hub and the ongoing developments.
Our digital workshop – “Get Confident Online” was designed to help people how to use computers and the internet.
It was a free, friendly and informal training session and was very much appreciated by those who attended.
