Endurance Race

Perranuthnoe was one of the check points on the gruelling route of this years Classic Quarter endurance race which took place on Saturday 28th June.

This is the second year the race has been run. It was founded by Simon Tregoning from Helston to provide a legacy of fundraising for Cornwall Hospice Care, which looked after his father in his final days.

Over one hundred runners signed up for the event and met at Lizard Point car park from 5am on Saturday morning. The race is 44 miles long starting at the Lizard and ending at Land's End with some runners running the full amount and some doing it in relay teams.

Village break-in

It has been reported that on Sunday night there were two break-ins in the Village.

One happened behind the Craft Centre in one of the buildings used by Perranuthnoe Village Crafts in which case the lock was broken but nothing was taken and, apart from the lock, nothing was damaged.

The other was a break-in to a car parked near the buildings behind the Craft Centre in which case a dark purple Trilby hat was stolen along with some wrapping paper and a bag of birthday cards.

Anyone with any information with regard to either of these incidents is advised to contact Penzance police station.

The person who's hat was stolen would very much like it returned so if you see someone walking around wearing a dark purple Trilby it might be worth passing that information on. You can use the contact page of this website if you like.
