Port quin run september
We’re celebrating our amazing coastline this year by going out for a run on some of the best bits. Whether you’re a seasoned trail runner or someone who last saw their trainers down the back of the sofa, we want you to join us to make the most of the beautiful coastline in North Cornwall.
We’re offering to guide you on either a 10k or 5k social run with the help of local running club Bodmin Road Runners. It will be off road, and may be a bit muddy, but once you’ve had a go, you’ll be hooked!
We’ll run to accommodate everyone’s ability, finishing up with a BBQ for those who wish to join us. A perfect way to spend a summer evening.
Time: 7pm
Booking essential and to find out more, call us on 01208 863821 or email tom.sparkes@nationaltrust.org.uk.
Bring: Running kit, water, warm clothes and food for the BBQ
Cost: Suggested donation of £1.50 per runner
Who is this event for: Runners and non-runners alike. The trails follow the coast path so can be steep and uneven. But your group leader will try to keep the group together.

Make hay while the sun shines
Saturday 12 September
Grab this volunteering opportunity by the scruff of the neck and literally help us make some hay! To encourage biodiversity in the marvellous hay meadows around Lundy Bay we cut after the flowers have set seed and then rake off the hay. Come and help the rangers rake hay and we’ll hopefully bring the sunshine! Whatever the weather you’ll get a ploughman’s lunch and cup of cider / apple juice for your trouble – all at a very competitive £1.50 per person!

10am and finish at 4pm
Tools, gloves and tuition: all provided by National Trust
Bring: food and drink, footwear and clothing suitable for the weather and task

Booking essential so that we can contact you if there are any last minute changes or cancellations and so we can let you know where to meet. Please call the rangers on 01208 863821 or email sarahe.stevens@nationaltrust.org.uk
