We are sad to report the passing of Pip Richards.
Pip was one of West Cornwall Dowsers original “founder” members, with us from the “off”, and an enthusiastic “Dowser”.
Although she is best known for her dedicated work with Sustainable Trust, Crenver Grove, and Carwynenn Quoit, she also had the Group involved with the Quoit from when it was just a pile of stones in a field. We dowsed it`s various “stages” often, finding, early on, the elusive ” Michael” line that had remained hidden to Hamish Miller & Paul Broadhurst. It has been at the Quoit ever since.
Historically, the first joint meeting of the Three Cornish Dowsing groups, (Tamar Dowsers, Trencrom Dowsers & the West Cornwall Dowsers ) occurred at Carwynenn, with Pip there to greet and warmly welcome us. She also, later, introduced the “Archaeologists” to the “Dowsers” with a very satisfactory result from both sides.
We will miss her as a sunny, cheerful dowsing companion, and also a staunch friend to the Cornish Dowsing fraternity. An inspirational lady, with a lovely heart and energetic commitment, her legacy, the resurrection of Carwynenn Quoit, will live on with all the other Projects, she was so selflessly involved with.
She rests forever in the corner of the Quoit field that she loved.
