It was in the above article that a journalist incorrectly wrote “It is one of Laetitia’s duties as a Wise Woman to “tease” Penglaz the Penzance ‘Oss“. This mistake gave the Golowan committee a reason to dismiss Cassandra and Laetitia from their festival back in 2010.
When it was brought to the attention of the newspaper who printed the article the journalist wrote a retraction printed the following week:
“The Cornishman would like to clarify that Laetitia Latham-Jones was invited to become a teazer because of her background as a member of the Wolf’s Head and Vixen Morris group. It is not one of her duties as a wise woman to coax the Oss.”
Despite the retraction by the journalist, the committee did not lift the ban.
