As of 4th July the Parish Offices are staring to be manned again for part of the week, but remain closed to visits from the public. If you need to talk to the clerk directly then try Monday & Wednesday between 9 & 1pm.
We are also making plans to reopen village services provided by the Parish – so the Junior Playing Field has re-opened (8/7) to all our users after having been thoroughly cleaned and additional signage put up. (equipment will be regularly disinfected on Monday mornings); the disabled toilets are now permanently open and we hope to have the rest of the public toilets open by w/b 13/7 – we are just waiting new basins going in. Sanitiser points have gone up outside but we ask you only use these if visiting the toilets, not just passing. Anyone using Carwinion Field is asked to take reasonable care as there are no facilities available and if they have a group/bubble meeting socially they they try to make a boundary (we hope to get some posts & rope up soon just for this) so it’s doesn’t look like large groups are forming.
11.6.20 – we intend undertake online meetings as of 18th June 2020 for the remainder of the lockdown. Please go to the agenda for full details of how to join our ZOOM meeting and participate in the discussions. We will have a limited agenda and hope to have a meeting of no longer than 90 minutes.
As we start to come out of lockdown we will get back to the reuglar format of the website front page. Covid-19 information remains on the Community Website or the community Covid facebook page

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.
Lockdown restrictions set to ease significantly from 4th July
As of 4 July, this will mean:
- you can meet in groups of up to two households (your support bubble counts as one household) in any location – public or private, indoors or outdoors. You do not always have to meet with the same household – you can meet with different households at different times. However, it remains the case – even inside someone’s home – that you should socially distance from anyone not in your household or bubble. This change also does not affect the support you receive from your carers
- when you are outside you can continue to meet in groups of up to six people from different households, following social distancing guidelines
- those who have been able to form a support bubble (i.e. those in single adult households) can continue to have close contact as if they live with the other people in the bubble, but you should not change who you have formed a support bubble with
- additional businesses and venues, including restaurants, pubs, cinemas, visitor attractions, hotels, and campsites will be able to open – but we will continue to keep closed certain premises where the risks of transmission may be higher
- other public places, such as libraries, community centres, places of worship, outdoor playgrounds and outdoor gyms will be able to open
- you can stay overnight away from your home with your own household or support bubble, or with members of one other household (where you need to keep social distancing)
- it will be against the law to gather in groups larger than 30 people, except for a limited set of circumstances to be set out in law and unless all members of the group are exclusively from two households. Police will have the power to break up groups larger than 30, apart from these exceptions
From Saturday 1 August
The guidance will then be relaxed so clinically extremely vulnerable people will no longer be advised to shield, but support will remain available from NHS volunteers and local councils. People will retain their priority for supermarket delivery slots, and still be able to access help with shopping, medication, phone calls and transport to medical appointments.
Those who need to work and cannot do so from home will be able to return to work as long as their workplace is COVID secure, adhering to the guidance available.
Social Distancing & Self Isolation
Even though Social Distancing has been relaxed to 1m plus (this means staying one metre apart, plus mitigations which reduce the risk of transmission) you should continue, where possible to:
- Keep your distance from people outside your household
- Keep your hands and face as clean as possible
- Work from home if you can
- Avoid being face-to-face with people if they are outside your household
- Reduce the number of people you spend time with in a work setting
- Avoid crowds
- If you have to travel (for example, to work or school), think about how and when you travel
- Wash your clothes regularly
- Keep indoor places well ventilated
- Face coverings
- When at work, follow the advice given to you by your employer
We know our parish has plenty of open space but we ask that you act responsibly when in it. Do not congregate in large groups as this is still against guidelines.
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.
