St. Ives


A strange heading under which to finish this story you may think.

Think again!

John Knill loved St. Ives. He loved it over two hundred years ago. I am quite sure that people loved it before and there is no doubt that people love it still.

This is our Mayor (or our Lady Mayoress I'm not quite sure of the correct term of address), our vicar and customs officer getting into the spirit of things:-

The Mayoress dances with Harding on the Knill Monument, Worvas Hill, St. Ives, Cornwall The Vicar waltzes a widow on the Knill Monument, Worvas Hill, St. Ives, Cornwall

At the end of the celebration we let rip with the old hundredth psalm, sung virtually 'a capella' with just John Care's fiddle to keep time:-

Singing Psalm 100 on the Knill Monument, Worvas Hill, St. Ives, Cornwall "All people that on earth do dwell..."

I suppose that you can laugh if you want to.....

We're not laughing..... But then again we've got a proud history.....

What have you got?

The next Knill Celebration will be on July 25, 2006. Book now to avoid disappointment!
