10 things to do in Cornwall this month


10 THINGS TO DO IN APRIL


All Normal Events and Festivals are Suspended Until Further Notice Due To Covid-19

We have put together a few suggestions of activities you can do online, in your home and in your garden while we are all having to stay at home.  

The list is not exhaustive and you may find online events being organised in your area.


1. Now we have to stay indoors, lots of you are disappointed that you cannot travel to locations you enjoy. Holidays have had to be put on hold and travel to second homes is not allowed.  For all the people who love Cornwall we are posting a daily photograph/video in a feature called Virtual Visits to Cornwall. This can be viewed on Twitter https://twitter.com/Intocornwall and Facebook https://www.facebook.com/intocornwall/

All images were made prior to the Covid-19 emergency .

Make a Wish List of all the places in Cornwall you want to visit after the emergency is over.
To add a location to your wish list simply save the location URL.

 

2.  Online quizzes are available on Twitter and Facebook 

Cornish Quiz on Sundays 

St Ives Liz’s Quizzes

4.  If you have a garden, Scooter the Hedgehog would like you to spend some of your staying at home time building a Bug Hotel or piling up logs or twigs. Scooter & his prickly pals love eating beetles & caterpillars so offering a home to insects in your garden is great news for hedgehogs.  You can find out more about Scooter by clicking here
To find out more about hedgehogs in Cornwall visit the Prickles and Paws website.


5.  Standup Comedy from Cornish comedian Colin Leggo every Friday on Twitter.  Don’t feel isolated join the #IsolationHub on Twitter every Friday at 8pm during the Covid-19 emergency.


6.  The Open University are offering free courses online in a large variety of subjects from Languages to Nature and Environment. Please see their online catalogue 


7.  Google Arts and Culture offers hundreds of museums online for you to explore from the British Museum in London to Musée d’Orsay, Paris and the Guggenheim in New York. Just search their Arts and Culture website


8.
 Enjoy a taste of stargazing. Start simply by looking up at the night sky on a cloudless evening. You don't need any special equipment for this. Visit https://earthsky.org/tonight and https://twitter.com/VirtualAstro 

If you want to look further into Astronomy then try exploring Mars and other planets on Google Maps Space
You can also view images of galaxies taken with the Hubble Space Telescope 


9.  Try learning Cornish. Start with a few words to phrases and more.  Start your journey into Kernewek at Go Cornish


10.  Enjoy wildflower gardening and planting for wildlife. Plant wildflower seeds in your garden and watch them grow into colourful wildflowers to attract butterflies, bees and other pollinators. You can do this even if you only have a small area to plant such as a window box. Numerous online retailers sell UK wildflower seeds.

Continuing the gardening theme, The National Trust is encouraging people to join Blossom Watch. It suggests adults and children who can see a tree in bloom take a moment to pause and enjoy the beauty of the blossom, and share their images on social media using the hashtag #BlossomWatch. Next year it intends to launch a blossom map to track the colours as they move across the country.

You can find out how to identify the blossom you see at National Trust Blossom Watch
