A new pennon for Tregurrian
By CANDY EVANS
Posted on 16 November 2017
There are more than 3,500 pennons in our Club Archive and if you’ve ever wondered how we go about creating a new one, this could be the story for you.
It starts just over a year ago, when I enjoyed a short out-of-season break in north Cornwall with my husband Mark, and we popped in to Tregurrian Club Site. I was tempted to buy a site pennon but thought something didn’t look quite right. The small flag sported a surfer riding a wave, as you might expect from a campsite that’s just a field away from the South West Coast Path and 20-minute walk to Watergate Bay.
However, the pennon showed a surfer on a board with an impractically blunt end, with the rear of his board buried in the wave in an unrealistic way. My technical-background hackles were raised and I had a word with the Holiday Site Manager Vanessa Wassell about it. She confirmed I wasn’t the first camper to spot this and between us we wondered what would be needed to update the design.
