First Thursday Meetings
From the A30: For those of you coming up, down or across the A30, go past St Columb Major on the road towards Newquay. Just after the filling station turn right, signposted to Newquay Airport. Go past the airport terminal entrance for about half mile, when you come to a tee junction. Turn right there and after about half-mile you get to the village of Trevarrian. As you enter the village turn off to the left where the campsite is signposted, then left again. The entrance to the park is on the left.

Enter the site and the roadway turns to the right and you will pass a collection of buildings. This is the main clubhouse of the park. The map of the park below shows the clubhouse. It is in this clubhouse where our indoor activities will take place. Also on the site map, at the top you will see marked a football pitch – this is the area where observing will take place.
