Preparations are already underway for this year's St Piran's Day in Falmouth and help is available for those wishing to take part.

Every year across Cornwall, residents and local communities come together to march in parades to celebrate the Patron Saint of Cornwall, St Piran.

With the Covid-19 pandemic forcing last year's celebrations to take place virtually or not at all, the team behind the Falmouth St Piran's Day celebration have said they will be working on the assumption that they will be able to go ahead.

In Falmouth, an all-day event will be held at the Princess Pavilion, with a parade leaving St Mary Gardens and heading towards Gyllyngdune Gardens.

Event organiser, Vicki Ferguson, said: I would like to put in an appeal for anyone who would like to join in the Falmouth Furry, either as a dancer of musician, to contact me as soon as possible so I can help them with the dance and give any music to the instrumentalists.

"We will be leaving Queen Mary Gardens at 10.00, dancing along the seafront as far as weather permits before entering Gyllyngdune Gardens from the seafront.

"My contact details are or 01326 315013."

If you're interested in taking part, feel free to contact Vicki for more details.
