September 19th – A big day for the people of Scotland. Today was the day that Scottish citizens had their referendum. Although they voted to stay in the UK, the whole business has stirred things up in Cornwall. You’ll never guess what’s happened over at West Pentire. They’ve decided that they want their own referendum! They want to declare independence from Crantock. I wouldn't mind... But West Pentire is nothing like Scotland. Well there are a few chaps up there who wear skirts. I think that's just a weekend thing.
For the last three years the Bale Push evening has inspired people to undertake challenges which some folk would consider crazy and others just plain mad!! In 2012 we witnessed the Holywell SLSC 12 hour Bale Push in the Village Hall Playing Field for the Carly Taylor Trust, in 2013 the same group of men pushed the Bale for 24 hours around the Playing field and in 2014 James Bayley decided to undertake an intense challenge of cycling from John O'Groats to Lands End to raise funds and awareness for the MS Trust. However not content with just doing the 10 solo cycle ride he decided to include a bale push on the 9th day after an already long day cycling.
