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
Application forms now ready. Click Here to download a set – requests needed back by 12th April 2019.
Remember – anyone who had a grant last year needs to be writing up a project summary for the Annual Parish Meeting on May 16th. Individual reminder letters to those expected to attend will go in the posts mid-April.
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.
Speedwatch for Mawnan?
unfortunately because of the results of the recent traffic & speed survey Police support for a Speedwatch project group in Mawnan has been withdrawn.
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.
