Coronavirus cases are rising rapidly across the country. This has necessitated  further period of lockdown, so you need to:

• stay at home as much as possible
• work from home if you can
• limit contact with other people
• keep your distance from people not in your household (2 metres apart
where possible)
• wash your hands regularly
• do not leave home if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.

You all know the most recent advice – Hands, Face, Spaces, & fresh air.

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.  Please do not contact your GP to ask about vaccinations – you will be advised when you are eligible and when your session is due.

If you can download that NHS tracking app please do so – it has information on restrictions, symptoms and testing.


Carwinion Playing Field remains open for individuals to use for exercise – though it is a bit soggy underfoot. 

However we ask that you try to keep to social distancing regulations and keep 2m apart from anyone outside of your household. We also ask that you keep groups to a max of 6 individuals wherever possible.

Please don’t undertake any activity that may look like something others can join in, with, even if you are in a household bubble.  We want to avoid social groups forming.

The carpark at Carwinion Field can be used for parking if using the surrounding footpath network but we ask that you understand the Trust hold no responsibility for damages, accidents or loss if vehicles are left.  Please park responsibly and try to avoid disruption to existing users such as the pre-school.

 

Census 2021 –

Households across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, alongside the rest of England and Wales will soon be asked to take part in Census 2021.
 
The census is a once-in-a-decade survey that gives us the most accurate estimate of all the people and households in England and Wales. It has been carried out every decade since 1801, with the exception of 1941.
It will be the first run predominantly online, with households receiving a letter with a unique access code, allowing them to complete the questionnaire on their computers, phones or tablets.
 
For more information, visit www.census.gov.uk. or maybe your thinking of being part of the census team? Take a look at their website at www.censusjobs.co.uk
