It’s all about the Red Arrows today…and the Giant Pasty!


For as long as I can remember we’ve been lucky enough to have the Red Arrows visit Fowey Regatta (indeed as a child I thought they were the Fowey Red Arrows and that we were kind enough to lend them to other towns)


Get into Fowey early and have a bite to eat or drink – some people get stuck on the road in and are forced to view the Arrows from their car – not ideal!


This is followed by the Giant Pasty ceremony – coming over from Polruan, accompanied by the Fowey Town Crier and the Fowey Town Band. Little ones queue up for a piece of this Fowey tradition, and  it’s an experience not to be missed.


There’s also gingerbread decorating in the Town Hall in the morning – always popular so get your child’s name down early – as well as the pasty eating competition.


In a change to the programme the Falmouth Working Boats will be at 1.30pm NOT 4.30pm as stated. This year marks their 70th visit, the first having been just after VE Day.


For music today, we have community choir Notability. Mevagissey Male Voice Choir and funky five-piece the Strutts.
