Directors quote: We have so much to be thankful for here in Callington, we live in a beautiful area with a wonderful community spirit. This pandemic has had a very serious effect on families and in particular, children. With that in mind, Callington Town Forum CIC, with support from Callington Town Council, has decided that our wonderful community deserves a day out”
