Venue

Carnon Downs Village Hall is easy to find. It’s in the village: turn off the main A39 Truro to Falmouth road. The main village road is Forth Coth and Tregye Road is a turning off that. The Hall is just at the turning. Our room is the Meeting Room, on the right inside the front door. Facilities are good. There’s a free car park, and a bus stop within 50 metres (route U1 and others).
