Another complaint about horses and their mess

I have received another complaint about horses and the mess they leave in the village:

Can nothing be done about the horse riders using the village roads and failing to clean up after their horses?

On several occasions in the past few weeks I have cleaned up their mess rather than risk the numerous children on the beach and approach roads getting covered in horse poo.

A rather irresponsible attitude on the part of those who should know better.

Best regards

If you have any comments about this issue please add them. This is the second email complaint I have had but there have been other verbal ones.

The Sun Shone For Gwlascore lowen

Bathed in sunshine Lynfield Craft Centre played host to Perranuthnoes first ever Gwlascore lowen on Sunday 7th September.

Gwlascore lowen, Cornish for 'happy community' is a new event with the aim being to bring our community together as well as raise funds for the benefit of anything local.

This years event was organised and sponsored by Perranuthnoe Village Crafts. A total of £110.01 was raised on the afternoon with this years recipient being the church tower fund.

With the sun shining (a rare thing this summer!) locals and visitors gathered to enjoy an afternoon of music from local band 'Perranaz Will Do' and violinist 'Sue Aston'.

It was a lovely day and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. Please feel free to add your own comments about this event.

Anyone interested in performing (doesn't have to be music) in next years event please use the contact page of this website.

Updated - Horses on beach complaint

Below is a copy of an email I have received;

Please can you do something to get the schooling of horses on the beach stopped.

I went to your beach last Saturday with my 2 young grandchildren, and was horrified to find a trail of horse dung across the path leading down to and in various places on the beach.

I'm told this is a regular thing - but if dogs are banned to avoid problems with them fouling the beach then so should the same rule apply to the horses.

I have brought the problem to the attention of the Penwith Council and hope together you can control the obvious health and safety risk which you appear to condone at present.

John McCarthy

Please feel free to add your comments to this issue. I have heard similar complaints myself mainly with regard to the possible danger of such a powerful animal being exercised where children are playing.


Herewith the reply I've received from Penwith. As suggested maybe your local community officials should contact the Health & Safety Officer to supply the horse owners name, who I was told had their stables in Perranuthnoe.

John McCarthy

Dear Mr McCarthy

Thank you for your comments. At present there is no legislation that bans horses from beaches in Penwith at any time of the year. It is not something that I would have any control over, but if you are able to provide details of the owner of the horse I can pass the information on to a Health and Safety Officer in case they are able to look into the matter.

Kind regards
