STELLAR PRIZES TO BE WON
The Grand Macmillan Fair Prize Draw, organised by Santander, is always popular with visitors and a great fundraiser. Tickets will be on sale throughout the event and the winning tickets will be drawn at 3.30pm on Thursday 8th November at the Eden Project. The lucky winner will be contacted by telephone. Prizes on offer for 2018 include a two night stay for two at Watergate Bay Hotel, a painting of Mousehole donated by Ken Howard OBE and lunch and drinks for two at the Hidden Hut.
Set on a spectacular surfing beach on the North Cornwall coast, Watergate Bay Hotel is the perfect destination for a contemporary beach holiday. It’s a place that’s about the balance in life – being active, getting among the elements, eating and drinking well, chilling out and getting cosy. Most of all, it’s about having a good time. The beach is on our doorstep, so from the moment you arrive the Atlantic Ocean and the rugged coastline are an ever-present reminder that here nature rules. But inside, every part of the hotel – from the bedrooms to Swim Club – has been created to bring you the best in contemporary Cornish comfort.
Renowned Royal Academician and former President of the New English Art Club Ken Howard OBE has very generously donated a painting of Mousehole. In his own words “For me painting is about three things. It is about revelation, communication and celebration. By revelation I mean giving people a way of seeing, revealing the world around them in a way they have never seen before, opening their eyes. For me drawing is the basis of all visual language, for the art of drawing is a way of seeing and celebrating the world.’
The Hidden Hut is a small cafe with a big difference. Found tucked away along the National Trust coastal path near Portscatho and St Mawes on the Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall; its a special spot to enjoy freshly cooked food with friends and family. During the day, the hut serves a small menu of simple, freshly-made lunches and refreshments. No need to book, just turn up and order. All items can be packed to takeaway onto the beach. No deep-fat fryers, just a simple outdoor stove and indoor bakery oven. The menu is always sourced from the best pick of local ingredients and made fresh each morning by our chefs.
