CATHOLIC FAMILIES ON HOLIDAY SIR, At this time of the year, there

must he many families facing the question of holidays and the special problem which besets them if they are Catholic families without much money to spend. Such people find themselves in quite a serious dilemma. If they insist, rightly, that they must be near a Catholic church while on holiday, their choice of place is limited to large seaside towns. This would mean a higher rate of living for the family than they could afford. More remote seaside places or country districts for cheapei accommodation they find are miles from church.

I think it might help many of your readers who come across this holiday problem to know that a Catholic holiday camp has been organised in one of the most beautiful parts of Cornwall and that it is situated practically next door to a church where there is a resident priest. I lived in the place myself last year and can warmly recommend it for its beauty and characteristic charm. Though quite near Plymouth and definitely a beauty-spot of the first order, it is quite unknown and, except among local people, unexploited as a holiday centre.

Anyone interested can get full particulars from Mr. Arthur Knight, Gunnislake, Cornwall, who is doing his best to popularise camping holidays among Catholics.
