24.3.20 It is with regret that after last night’s Government announcement we are closing the physical parish council offices. The clerk will continue to work from home in a slightly limited capacity. So, if you need to contact us please ring 251022 or email email@example.com but expect some delay in responding.
Our frontpage is now being dedicated to how we can deal with the Coronavirus outbreak..
There is more information about community volunteering, which businesses locally will deliver and how you can help on the Community Website or the community Covid facebook page
If anyone needs help can you put something (red) up in your window/ on your front door. If ANYONE out and about sees this can they please go and ask what they can do … we are not able to police the whole community and ask for support in taking care of ourselves.
Cornwall Volunteers & Cornwall Council weekly newsletters
There is also a link to the Cornwall Council Community Toolkit for use by any local group providing support in any fashion.
Please send all coronavirus related enquiries or issues to Cornwall Council’s dedicated email address firstname.lastname@example.org – they can provide information on issues relating to second homes & holiday lets, opening to visitors, parking & social distancing problems.
We know that some restrictions have now been lifted – however the following STILL APPLY
We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:
- stay at home as much as possible
- work from home if you can
- limit contact with other people
- keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
- wash your hands regularly
Do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.
Although you can now drive further afield to take exercise this does not mean that you should; please remember that if you do feel the need to get out and about social distancing rules still apply and should be taken seriously. Day trips to outdoor open space, in a private vehicle, are permitted and you can now arrange to meet up with ONE PERSON from outside your household. Leaving your home – the place you live – to stay at another home for a holiday or other purpose is not allowed. This includes visiting second homes.
Driving round Mawnan during the Coronavirus Lockdown
Can we please remember that there have been no changes to speed limits or relaxation of road legislation during the lockdown period? We all know that there are less cars on the roads, which does give the feeling that we are more in control and have longer to react- but this is not the case.
We have had a lot of complaints about speeding through the village and surrounding roads, poor decision making from road users (and this is NOT just cars & lorries but more worryingly cyclists and walkers) and a general feeling that people are just not paying enough attention.
We are asking that you keep to the speed limits in our parish; that you anticipate that walkers & cyclists may be more prevalent on our lanes and slow down, especially on bends, and that walkers and cyclists remember that they do still have to expect cars on the roads. We need to live in harmony through this exceptional period – accidents can and do still happen but diverting resources from a stretched NHS is not what we should be doing simply because we are not paying more attention to our surroundings.
Going out for exercise
Although you can now drive further afield to take exercise this does not mean that you should; please remember that if you do feel the need to get out and about social distancing rules still apply and should be taken seriously. Day trips to outdoor open space, in a private vehicle, are permitted and you can now arrange to meet up with ONE PERSON from outside your household. If you do drive and find the carparks there full please consider going somewhere else to help keep visitor numbers in this location down.
Leaving your home – the place you live – to stay at another home for a holiday or other purpose is not allowed. This includes visiting second homes, staying in motor-homes or camping.
Social Distancing & Self Isolation
Please, if you don’t have to be out advice is to STAY AT HOME. We know our parish has plenty of open space but we ask that you act responsibly when in it – stay 2m ( about 7′) apart unless you are in a family group. Do not congregate in large groups.
If you are one of the many people who are in a group that is now self isolating please make sure that you have the contact details for a relative, friend or neighbour in the parish who IS ABLE to get out. It may also help to ring around people in your own address-book just to see how they are. Follow Government or NHS advice – be cautious about information being spread via social media or online.
We also have information from the BBC on what the Coronavirus is, symptoms, advice on what to do if you think you may have it, what self isolation means and what happens during testing.
Remember, if you think you have symptoms please do not go to your GP – self isolate yourself and ring NHS 111 and they will give you details on what needs to be done.
