Review of Parish Boundaries & Parish Councils

There is a review started to assess how we feel about the current parish boundaries, the composition and makeup of the parish council and the name of the parish.  Mawnan Parish Council have already said that we are happy with our current situation, but that we would like to be involved if there are significant changes to neighbouring parish boundaries in the pre-discussion.

We now enter the more formal stage and would like to hear from you if you think our boundaries or parish council should change.  More information can be found here, but we would ask that you send copies of any replies to us as well, so we can gauge community feelings.

Parish Grants for 2019/20

First round of application have now been issued.   If you feel that you want to do a late application we will review them again in October if more have been received.  Forms can be obtained by contacting the clerk.


Remembrance Service 2018

Thanks you to the large number of people who swelled the Memorial Hall to almost bursting point on Sunday morning.

Fortunately we managed to avoid any of the passing showers and were grateful to those who accompanied the group in it’s transit down to the Millennium Cross and the formal laying of wreaths.

Special thanks to the hall ladies, WI& Local History Group for their wonderful refreshments, an eye-catching display of community poppies and the personal and local remembrances of the village’s history during the war.

Graveyard Signage Project

As part of an ongoing project by the Parish Council to help visitors and parishioners alike locate the graves of individuals we have installed a new sign up at St Mawnan Church and have left a  hardcopy of our “Finding a Memorial” information in the lychgate below the sign as well as it being available on the parish website.

If you do note any changes, omissions or something that need correcting please contact the parish clerk – changes can be done in a couple of days usually.


For details on any current contracts & quotes OR details on our graveyards please look under “Council Services” on the main SERVICES menu bar.  

Check out the  NOTICEBOARD  section under information where we hope to be able to add details of all of the communications sent to the clerk which might be of interest to anyone in the parish.
