CALSTOCK FOOTPATH SOCIETY
The Society works alongside the Parish Council to ensure that the footpath network is checked at least three times a year to make certain that use is not denied. They also organise regular walks.

GUNNISLAKE COMMUNITY MATTERS
GCM began in 2016 with the aim of enhancing the village environment and improving the quality of life in partnership with all sections of the community and interest groups.
Progress can be seen in all sorts of ways physically – planters, regular plant stall, car park and phone box repainted, new notice boards, litter picks, mural, children’s living play project and, of course, the Christmas lights.
Socially, we’ve enjoyed local walks, discos, street party, quizzes and creative cafe. Lots of ideas for the future too. And the GCM Facebook page has been very popular and used daily in many positive ways.
Chair: Ross Hanley 01822 834773.
Usually held annually in July. Been on hold since pandemic. Watch this space.
