Mr. Don McQuillen-Wright
I could be described as a lifelong Christian being born and raised in a Baptist family.
Along the way there were lapses of involvement; forays into both Methodist and baptist churches, investigations into other faiths but a I made a serious commitment to Anglicanism some 40 years ago and have been a reader since 1992.
The first twenty-four years of my working life were spent in senior retail management; 5 years running my own retail business; 2 years ‘sabbatical’ as a professional gliding instructor and then 32 years as a driving instructor before retiring 2 years ago.
I’m married to Harvey, have 2 married sons, 1 grandson and 1 new arrival. My hobbies include Piano, reading, leading a community choir in Newquay and building and flying radio controlled model aircraft.
Mrs. Denise Jeffery
St Enoder Church is a major part of my life. I’m on the PCC and am assistant secretary but over the years have been Churchwarden, Treasurer & Synod representative. The family live and farm next door so are always on hand for the various activities and no excuse for being late for services!
I am lucky enough to have grandchildren close by and love to have them with us to take them riding on our old pony and to go on cycle rides. My husband and I along with our son are organic dairy farmers and all enjoy the challenges that this presents.We love the theatre, the sea and like to sail when work load & weather permit and to travel to discover other cultures.
I have helped organise flower festivals, run youth groups and lunch clubs but now am keen to expand on our Open the Book outreach in our schools to Messy Church Events. So please watch this website or feel free to contact me if you and your family are interested in attending or helping in this new venture.
I have been a regular Parishoner at St. Enoder since my husband and I moved to Cornwall, from Devon, in 1991 We bought the Post Office in Summercourt, where I was Postmistress for about a year and then my husband took over and I went out to work, firstly at Pall Newquay and then Cornwall Council, until I retired recently.
St. Enoder is a beautiful Church and the Congregation are friendly and welcoming. Over the years I have been a representative on the PCC, Minute Secretary and have just recently been appointed as a Church Warden.
In my spare time I go to keep fit, yoga and Tai Chi. I enjoy reading, dog walking and have taken up knitting, although I am not very good at it!
I am also involved with CRUSE Bereavement and have helped run a Friendship Group in Newquay for the past 11 years.
