The belye nochi come to Penwith

In celebration of the Russian white nights, or ‘belye nochi’, of summer, about a hundred West Cornwall DFAS members gathered at Trereife House to raise a glass to those wonderful long and luminous midsummer evenings.

It was a fabulous night spent nibbling on blinis, caviar and vetrushki; sipping vodka; and delighting to the sounds of Russian folk duo Muzika Muzikantov. And what a stylish group we were, all clad in our summer whites!

Once again this year, we give our thanks to Tim and Liz Le Grice who so graciously opened their home and gardens to us. And thanks to them also for arranging a rain-free evening!
