200201 | Hello Hayle

Cornish Arms (Hayle)
John, Bernadette and Charlie Fynn the dog. ( who has met more than 100 dogs in the past 2 months)

Hello Hayle

We started a new adventure! We wanted to work with St.Austell’s Brewery. We had never been to Cornwall. Never been to the south of England. We haven’t seen much of Great Britain at all really.

We are from Canada. But let me start at the beginning of this journey.... We received a call –St. Austell’s had a lovely pub called the Cornish Arms (Hayle) would we be interested? John and I decided to take a road trip ( we were currently living in Morecambe enjoying the views of Morecambe Bay). We drove down to Hayle with Charlie Fynn our goldendoodle dog –quite the drive. Arrived at the pub and stayed in the holiday let  a 2 bedroom flat) –the pub looked lovely –the people were friendly.  read more »

200201 | Dissolution of Praze Hayle Choir

Praze Hayle male choir could disband unless new musical director comes forward - The Cornishman

Dissolution of Praze Hayle Choir

It is with great regret that we have to announce the dissolution of the Praze Hayle Male Voice Choir. The choir last met in August 2019 and the intervening period has been spent in distributing the choir’s assets, both financial and physical; This has now been completed.

The choir was formed by the joining together of the Praze and Hayle Male Voice Choirs and  25performed successfully for nearly two decades. However, a declining membership meant that the choir could no longer perform the 4-part Male Voice Choir music that formed its repertoire and closure, sadly, became inevitable.  read more »

200201 | Haylestones


Do you know of any marker or boundary stones in the Hayle area? I home-published a small booklet about them a couple of years ago but would like to update it and produce it as a proper book.

I know about most of the obvious ones -the 4 numbered milestones from Penpol Road to Connor Downs; Harvey/CCC marked posts; the GWR stone by the  34greenhouse on the King George Memorial Walk, etc., but there are many more. We are lucky they are still here and I'd like to record what the town has at the moment.  read more »
