Rock residents have once again got behind CEYS, by opening their gardens in aid of the charity.  11 wonderful gardens spanning the length of Rock, some with seaviews and all with enviable planting, will be welcoming visitors on Sunday 29th May, 2-5pm.

The cost is only £5 pp to see all the gardens or as many as you can fit in; there is no set order. Includes a free cream tea served at seaside garden Porthilly Stream all afternoon, or until all 200 servings are taken! A raffle and plant stall will feature in this garden.

Tickets are now available from Newslines newsagent at Pavilion building, Rock Road or on the day from 1-3.30pm outside the Dining Room restaurant.

Visitors are asked not to drive into the gardens but to park at Ferry Point or in John Bray's car-parking field opposite Rock Institute or on-road parking around the village. (John Bray has kindly offered a limited number of free parking passes to the first ticket buyers at The Dining Room restaurant on the day).  Please take care in the gardens and take note of the health and safety notices on tickets and on signs outside each garden.   All we need now is sunshine!

CEYS Open Garden 22 Poster Latest


Well we saw no Easter Bunny but still some generous souls with ready money as we collected for CEYS on Easter Saturday.  Many proferred cards instead and it is clearly time for CEYS to go cashless too. Rock's Easter CEYS street collection was nevertheless a great success, amassing... wait for it.... £3 in old £1 coins, 2 Euros, a 20 Lipa coin from Republika Hrvatska.... and £524 in hard cash.

Many thanks to CEYS supporters for their time collecting and to all those who donated.

Ceys lesson

April 9th saw up to 26 children from Wadebridge School take to the water for the first time with CEYS. 30 hours of sailing tuition later - throughout April, May and June - should see them surface as fully-fledged RYA Stage 3 competent sailors. We wish them luck!  Good luck also to the group of children who, weather-beaten last Autumn, are set to recommence their lessons on 26th April with completion also in June.
