We see the return of this traditional funfair ride. Dating from 1963 this beautiful ride has travelled the country bringing joy to so many.
Adorned with bright colours and lights, ride up high during the day and take in the sites of the village, the valley and beyond. But its at dusk that this colourful ride really comes to life. A fun ride for all the family.

We’re a community dedicated to the protection of oceans, waves, beaches and wildlife. We fight long and hard to protect what we love and we won’t stop until it’s completely clean, safe and protected for everyone, forever.

From humble beginnings in Porthtowan Village Hall in 1990, we’ve stayed close to our roots and continue to be based just up the road at our St Agnes HQ where we can keep an eye on the sea.

Just 12 of us work in the office full time, but it’s really thanks to people like you who support our work through membership donations, volunteering, signing petitions, buying from our shop and spreading the word that allows our impact to be widely felt.

KIDS AREA

Based in the stunning West Country County of Somerset Really Wild Adventures really lives up to its name. With over 25 years of experience in teaching, coaching, education, working within schools and colleges or with youth organisations promoting Field Sports & Conservation to the wider world, with eco and forest schools or bush craft lessons taking a presidential place. They teach all about agriculture and where your food comes from, while showing how the great circle of life walks hand in hand with nature. Come and see ‘The Old Mucker’ and his team where children of all ages are encouraged and shown countryside bush craft, can hold and see ferrits and birds of prey or have some coaching with archery or air gun target practice.
PIGLETS
Our local friend Paul The Pig knows more about pig farming and raising piglets than anyone we know. Not only does he rear pigs, but also has PIG on his number plate and is the taxi man for The Pig Nr Bath so it doesn’t get more piggy than that. He shall be back with some little piglets for all to see.
