Storm Monday 10th March 2008

As the biggest storm of the winter lashed our coast on Monday, Perranuthnoe escaped with only minor damaged to some property and a few power cuts.

The sea however, was raging and the cliffs took a real battering.

Our beach is now strewn with all sorts of rubbish.

Trebarvah cliffs, the weather is taking its toll.

Let's hope we don't see another storm like this for a long time.

Boat Cove - Ideas needed

Penwith have now been in contact with Ian Hicks, Boat Cove Association chairman. Although they were unable to arrange a date for a meeting just yet they have indicated that they cannot see much of a problem with the moving/replacement of the shed. They have however, stressed concern over the slip.

The feeling is that the slip is very dangerous in its present state and a replacement would have to conform to safety standards.

Boat Cove Association would welcome any ideas anyone might have for a suitable replacement.

You can submit your ideas by clicking on 'comments' just below this post.

Alternatively you can email your ideas of call in to see Kevin or Val at Perranuthnoe Village Crafts

Dog Beach Ban Altered

Penwith District Council have reviewed and altered the dog ban on beaches orders.

The new orders state that from 1st May to 30th September dogs are banned from the beach between the hours of 8am and 7pm.

"These new beach bans will be reviewed in October 2008 and if it becomes evident that there has been an increase in dog fouling on the beaches during the summer months the Orders may well be extended to cover a 24 hour period.

Penwith recognises that many dog owners are responsible and pick up their mess and it is a small minority that don't. The message is abuse this flexible ban and loose it, don't be one of the minority who spoil it for the majority - pick up after your dog.

Any person found taking their dog onto a beach when the ban is in operation will be liable to a fixed penalty ticket of £75 reduced to £50 is paid within 10 days of issue."
-End quote-

Dog walkers should be aware that the whole of the beach, including the area below Trebarvah, is affected.

Thanks to Paul of Quilkyns for bringing this to our attention.

Maen-du Point - What Was This Wall Built For And By Who?

There is part of a wall still visible just to the right of the benches at Maen-du Point. The photo was spotted on the Gallery page of the website and I have been asked for more information

It has been said that it was built by French prisoners of war, has anybody heard the same thing and can anybody add any more information?

You can add your comments at the bottom of this post (just click on 'comments') or contact me via email.

This all helps in putting the history of Perranuthnoe together so any information you can give will be gratefully received and will be of benefit to our village as it will all be stored forever for future generations.

Thank you
