Turning the spotlight on Cornwall’s favourite and most iconic food, the first ever Cornish Pasty Week will be celebrated throughout Cornwall and across the country.

From Sunday 25th February, there will be a whole week of activity, culminating in the ‘Oggy Oscars’  the seventh-annual World Pasty Championships, held on Saturday 3rd March at the Eden Project.

Registration is simple and can be done online.  Entry fee is £10 for adult categories and £5 for junior categories. You will then receive a confirmation email and a form to complete. 

So start perfecting your pasties and make sure you have that winning entry ready to go!

Time to act on plastic pollution

The Prime Minister must take bold and decisive steps to break industry and societal addiction to single-use plastics. Outlawing non-recyclable plastics and making industry take full responsibility for their plastic waste is essential to this. The extension of the plastic bag levy, the microbead ban and a UK-wide deposit refund system are proven ways to reduce society’s plastic footprint that is trampling our natural world.

Our oceans have brought the plastic pollution crisis to millions of people across the UK’s coastlines, with the recent storms that battered the UK again demonstrating the huge scale of the issue and how it affects us here in Britain. Our beaches have been inundated with vast deposits of throwaway plastics, creating a toxic tideline of plastic products that society often uses for just a few seconds yet persist in our marine environment for hundreds, if not thousands of years.  Plastic pollution has spread into every corner of our world, a parasite hitching a lift on the essential fluids of life; our air and water.

In the UK we use a staggering 38.5 million single-use plastic bottles and a further 58 million cans every day. Only half of these are recycled, so it’s no surprise that many of these end up on our beaches and in our oceans. A UK-wide deposit refund system on plastic bottles could stop this source of plastic pollution and a recently delivered petition with over 300,000 signatures supporting this call has been delivered to the Prime Minister, thanks to Surfers Against Sewage.

The time for action is now to implement new policies and legislation that the country is crying out for to finally go plastic free. We must reinvent our relationship with single-use plastic to eliminate, replace and recycle plastics faster and more effectively. Plastic production is already rampant and is also set to increase massively in the next 25 years. We need new legislation and systems to stop plastic at source now. We can’t simply pick our way out of the problem; it’s gone far beyond being simply a littering issue.

Help us and many other individuals and organisations working towards Plastic Free Coastlines by eliminating throwaway plastics such as straws, plastic water bottles, bags, cutlery and finding more sustainable alternatives. From grassroots to Government, the time to act is now.

Once in a blue moon - sooner than you think!

As the world settles into 2018, it's been an auspicious year for skywatchers already. New years day presented the first supermoon of the year, sort of a warm up to the main event later in the month. At the end of January, skywatchers will be treated to a supermoon, blue moon, and a total lunar eclipse (known as blood moon) all in one night – although the latter will not be visible from the UK.

This phenomenon, nicknamed the "Super Blue Blood Moon" will be icing on the cake after several months of impressive moons. However, there’s more to follow as although February won't showcase a full moon, March will have another blue moon on the 31st.

There's a lot of jargon surrounding different lunar phenomena, so read on to find out what each one means and why it's a special occurrence to have a super blue blood moon.

What Is A Supermoon?

As the moon orbits the Earth it does so in an ellipse, with an average distance from the moon to Earth of 238,000 miles. However, as the moon circles, its distance from the earth varies slightly. The term supermoon refers to the occasion when a full moon coincides with the closest the moon gets to Earth during its orbit around our planet.

During the supermoon, the moon appears about 14 percent larger than a normal full moon and around 30 percent brighter. While this isn't a drastic difference, the moon can look even bigger if it is close to the horizon. This is because we can visually compare the size of things on the horizon (buildings, trees, mountains, etc.) to the size of the moon. This invariably makes the moon appear larger than normal, which is why most supermoon photos you see show the moon just at the horizon.

So January 31st will present a supermoon where the moon will appear slightly larger and brighter than normal (if there are no clouds that is). But there are still two other phenomena to occur on that night, the blue moon and total lunar eclipse.

What Is A Blue Moon?

You've likely heard the phrase "once in a blue moon" meaning something happens infrequently. However, a blue moon occurs about every 2.5 years according to NASA. The term is used when there are two full moons in a single calendar month. Hence, the second full moon in January will be termed a blue moon.

This happens because of slight differences in the calendar month and lunar phases. Each full moon occurs ever 29.5 days, however, months can be up to 31 days. This means that there is a possibility, if the timing is correct, for a full moon to occur at the very beginning and end of a single month. This also means February will never have a blue moon as it is shorter (28 days) than a full moon cycle (29.5 days).

In 2018 we will experience two blue moons, one on January 31st and the other on March 31st.

Now that we've covered both the supermoon and blue moon to occur on January 31st, let's dissect what a total lunar eclipse means.

What Is A Total Lunar Eclipse (Blood Moon)?

The third phenomena to occur on January 31st is a blood moon, nicknamed for the reddish hue cast on the moon. The term blood moon refers to a total lunar eclipse where a full moon lines up with the Earth and Sun. In this configuration the Earth blocks out the Sun's light, turning the moon from a white glowing orb to a deep red orb.

Unfortunately for us, the lunar eclipse will not be visible from the UK, but, weather permitting,  it’s still a night to get out and take a look at what should be a spectacular moon.

Cornwall's first snow weather warning in years

Snow is predicted for Launceston, Bodmin, St Austell and Wadebridge as a Yellow Weather Warning is issued for Cornwall.

Cornwall is getting prepared for snow at the end of this week. There’s a real chance of seeing the white stuff in Cornwall despite years of absence in this part of the country.

Temperatures are set to plunge on Thursday (December 7 2017 ) with wintry weather expected and a yellow weather warning for snow and ice has been issue for central and eastern Cornwall on Friday and Saturday (December 8 and 9 2017).

“The snow and ice warning for Saturday identifies the potential for snow showers in east Cornwall,” said Grahame Madge, from the Met Office.  “With the wind coming from a northerly direction, those areas in Cornwall with the greatest chance of seeing snow will be in areas of higher ground around Wadebridge, Launceston and Bodmin.”

The warning, which is in effect from 12.05am on Friday to 6pm on Saturday, says snow could fall at lower levels, with higher amounts on high ground. Other areas, like St Austell, Newquay and Saltash are also at risk of seeing snow.

There are 25 gritters ready and waiting for the call to send them out, spreading salt over 900 miles of Cornwall’s busiest A and B roads.  While salt itself won’t prevent snow settling, it does lower its freezing point, making it more difficult for it to settle or for ice to form.

However snow can make driving difficult, especially if you’re not used to it.  A Cornwall Council spokesman recommended that any unnecessary journey be avoided if at all possible.  Advice is to monitor your local radio stations, social media and any travel apps on your mobile phones to keep up to date with the latest forecasts, current conditions, and advice.

Venus and Jupiter conjunction: Dawn display awaits sky-watchers

As they wake up on Monday morning 13th November 2017, those with a clear view will be able to see Venus and Jupiter aligned together.  The planets will appear together in the south-east, just above the horizon.

In the UK, the best viewing time will be 40 minutes before sunrise. Viewed from London, the planets should appear just before 0600 GMT with conjunction occurring just after.  Experts say they will be so close as to appear almost on top of each other, perhaps looking like one bright star.

Clear skies are needed - and forecast for much of England and Wales. The sun will not rise until around 0715 GMT, meaning there will be plenty of time to view the spectacle before the sky brightens too much.

While the planets will be visible to the naked eye, viewers with a telescope will also be able to see Jupiter's four Galilean moons.  The planets will be seen best by those in mid-northern latitudes around the world, including the UK and northern US.

Observers will have to have an uninterrupted view to the south-east as the planets will be very low in the sky. Those on high ground have the best chance of seeing the conjunction.  Binoculars could be used to get a better view before the sun rose above the horizon.  However, he warned people not to do this after sunrise, as it could be dangerous.

Man and dog rescued from the water at Rocky Valley

Bude Coastguard Rescue Team (CRT) members were paged at 10:25 today, 1st November 2017, and tasked to Rocky Valley, just north of Tintagel, to back up Boscastle CRT following the report of a dog trapped in the water at the bottom of the cove, with the adult male owner having also descended in an attempt to rescue.

With members of Boscastle CRT already on scene and relaying communications as the Bude team arrived, lifejackets were donned before the team (along with further members of Boscastle CRT) commenced down through the valley to the scene of the incident, fully equipped with water rescue equipment, should it be required.

With members of Boscastle CRT having already ascertained that access to the casualty and his dog was extremely treacherous and that a rope rescue should be a last resort, and with sea conditions being very calm, it was decided that the best access would be from the water itself, and the Port Isaac Lifeboat was subsequently tasked by Falmouth Coastguard Operations Centre (CGOC).

As Bude and Boscastle CRTs continued to monitor and reassure the casualty, Port Isaac Lifeboat arrived on the scene, and deployed one member of the crew to standby with the casualty, as the boat and the rest of crew came alongside into a more favourable position from which to get the casualty and his dog on board.

Once the casualty and the dog were safely aboard, the lifeboat left the scene and deposited the casualty and the dog on Castle Beach, just below Tintagel Castle, where his relieved wife and son – who had been escorted there by members of Boscatle CRT – were there to greet him.

Well done to all involved in the rescue. What people should do and what they actually do in such circumstances don’t always match. A happy outcome.
