Madron Parish Well Wishers

In 2014, it was established that there was a need of some kind of Residents’ Association in Madron, in the hope of encouraging community cohesion which was virtually non-existent.

A committee was formed but no one cared for the title of yet another Residents’ Association which was really “old hat”.

However, one member was painting the outside of her property when, thinking about everything and nothing, she devised the brilliant idea that we should call ourselves Madron Well Wishers, in honour of the ancient well in the parish.

Everyone involved was so excited with this unique title – and you might say that the rest is history!

One of our first events was the “Make A Wish”, when residents were invited to take a free cup of coffee and to write down their most heartfelt wishes for improvements in the village. The most popular took a number of years to become a reality but the installation of a bus shelter at Trelawney was welcomed by many people, some of whom even thanked us for our determination in making that happen.

We have achieved much in the village since our inception but perhaps the greatest, and the one of which we are most proud, is the serving of Free Lunches on every second month. We have a small committee, each member of which really does pull his or her weight; all the food is cooked in our homes and we have some fifty patrons who support us on every occasion when their personal calendars permit.

One can tell by the level of conversation at the meals that we have really hit this nail on the head. The Wishers are most grateful to the Methodist Church for allowing us to serve lunches in the Sunday School Room and we are proud that we have extended the range of crockery and cutlery, etc., which is available for use by everyone who uses the room.

In the village, we have provided smart notice boards which are used extensively to advertise community events. We also produce a quarterly magazine which is printed professionally and which is delivered to every house in the village.
