Falmouth will be marking St Piran's Day this year with a parade through the town, once again organised by Kowethas an Yeth Kernewek (the Cornish Language Fellowship).

The parade will take place on St Piran's Day, Tuesday 5 March and will set off from the Moor at 10am.

One of the organisers, Vicki Ferguson said: "Last year was the first time Falmouth held a St Piran's Day Parade. Four local schools participated on a gloriously sunny spring morning, dancing from the Moor, up High St, down on to The Prince of Wales Pier and back to The Moor.

After the Parade we returned to the Women's Institute for refreshments and story telling. Locals were out on force lining the pavements. The video we made shows how happy everybody was."

She added: "This year we will be based at The Methodist Church and the children are providing the entertainment themselves. I'm looking forward to seeing what each school does on 'a Cornish' theme. It is really exciting.

We will also be dancing on the Moor before retreating in to the Methodist Church."

Vicki says helpers are also required. She commented:  "You can join in with the music, help with the stewarding, put up posters or assist with the refreshments afterwards. You can even help sponsor the parade and all sponsors will be acknowledged. Please let me know."
