Cutting cauliflower in Cornwall


It's the time of year when fields in west Cornwall are filled with workers cutting cauliflowers and picking daffodils... This is hard and back-breaking work - particularly on wet and/or frosty mornings - and is done almost uniquely from workers from overseas. The industry couldn't continue without these international workers.

Photography workshop in Truro with international nurses

 A wonderful workshop yesterday in Truro, Cornwall, with international nurses from the Royal Cornwall Hospital, Treliske. Many have not been here for many months, so this was a great introduction to the city - led by our photography tutor Mike Newman.  Thank you Hall for Cornwall for providing such a splendid cream tea (what an introduction to Cornish cuisine!) and allowing us to visit the theatre.

Photography workshops with international nurses working in Truro


A cold but inspiring afternoon in Falmouth last week when international nurses from the Royal Cornwall Hospital, Truro, joined us for a photography workshop led by Mike Newman. Stills of the photographers in action by Caleb Giddens.

This is part of our project I PACKED THIS MYSELF, funded by Cornwall Council and aimed at breaking down prejudice and increasing understanding of the people from overseas who play a vital role in the local economy and our lives.
The photography workshops are funded through Magic Little Grant through the partnership between Localgiving and Postcode Society Trust.  Postcode Society Trust is a grant-giving charity funded by players of the People’s Postcode Lottery. Localgiving is the UK’s leading membership and support network for local charities and community groups.
