Around 20 members and guests met at Newtown Farm where local farmer Godfrey Piper began an entertaining excursion into local history. Godfrey's talk began with an explanation of the history of the site and the extensive range of buildings that now make up Newtown Farm. Following the failure of the mining industry and changes to farming practices many homes in the area became deserted and underwent change of use or became derelict. At Newtown Farm alternative uses were found for some of these empty homes. With the aid of site observations and his fascinating collection of old photographs Godfrey was able to illustrate how some of these conversions had been carried out. In addition, photos and memories of the old General Store and of preparations to visit the Plum Fare in Helston, provided intriguing views of past times in Newtown.

Reconciliation involves forgiveness, a willingness to listen and perseverance in the pursuit of justice.
