Volunteers Needed To Rake Up The Churchyard

Residents of Perranuthnoe

It's your churchyard.

The church yard has now had its annual cut.

Volunteers are invited to come at your leisure, any time soon, to rake up the cut grass . Half an hour of your time may be all that is needed to do a small share.

If you could rake up a section and leave it in a small heap by a path, it will be taken to the main heap at a later date. This makes it obvious to others which bit you have done.

It should be a sunny weekend so the perfect opportunity to help.  Or come later in the week if it's not finished. So please come and do your bit for the Community. 

Thank you in advance

A Message from the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group

Thank you to everyone who has shared their thoughts and comments on the draft Parish Neighbourhood Plan. This is just a reminder to anyone who hasn’t yet done so, that the deadline for comments is coming up at the end of the month.

Please do take a few minutes to provide your feedback, it’s your Plan and it’s important that it provides planning guidance that will work positively to make sure that future development here benefits the Parish community, and protects the resources and areas that are important to you ....but the Steering Group won’t know unless you tell them!

It is really important that you tell the Steering Group:

 - if the draft Plan’s policies cover the issues which you feel are important here? If so please confirm which policies you feel will be most beneficial to the Parish and why.

And/or

 - if there are important planning issues that the Plan’s policies don’t address properly, or don’t address strongly enough? If so what and why?

The Feedback Form can be downloaded from the Neighbourhood Plan website www.ourperran.co.uk along with the Neighbourhood Plan itself, an ‘At a Glance’ summary of the Plan’s policies, and all other relevant documents.

Thank you .... Let’s forge a stronger Parish together!

Key Worker Needs Accommodation

My name is Mark Charlton and I am a specialist gardener at the new Trenow Fields permaculture project. 
I have been in temporary accommodation for the past month but now need to find a new place. I've just heard about an incredible cohousing community in Marazion so things are moving. They're hoping to complete in September so just a few more months to find a place for! I am a non-smoker and work full time. I am seeking low budget accommodation within striking distance of Perranuthnoe.

If anyone can help please comment below.

Thank you

FREE Stairlift

I own Parc and Praze and we are cleaning up the house. There is a stairlift in the house that is no longer needed and I wondered if someone in the village could use it. I'm happy to give it to them for free and have it delivered to their house for installation.

It is a Stanna Stairlift and in perfect condition.  It is a straight run of lift that covers 13 standard stairs.  Hopefully this can be useful for someone in the village.






If anyone is interested I can be contacted by;

Perranuthnoe Car Park Update

As you may already be aware the car park is now open!

Unfortunately, after all the moaning about it being closed people are still parking around the village only now it is to avoid the parking fees. Parking outside peoples homes and along the road down in to the village is NOT ON and causes unnecessary congestion.

Please think twice before you leave your car parked where it shouldn't be parked. No one wants to be the cause of a nasty accident or, God forbid death due to roads being blocked by selfish parking. Our roads are not wide enough for this sort of behaviour. THINK, ambulances, fire engines, busses, delivery vehicles.

And a special note to the surfers, SLOW DOWN!

If this virus & lockdown has taught us anything surely it is to be more thoughtful about our actions and show more compassion for others?

Stay safe

Take care. Stay safe

Call to holiday lets to follow COVID-19 closure orders

Ahead of the Easter holidays Cornwall Council is calling on holiday accommodation providers, including letting agents and online booking platforms, to support the COVID-19 response by following the Government’s closure orders.

The overwhelming majority of holiday accommodation providers, such as self- catering businesses, bed and breakfasts, caravan parks, hotels, campsites and holiday homes, have shut their doors as a result of the Government ordering all non-essential businesses to stop operating and for everyone to stay at home and avoid unessential travel.

There are a number of exemptions which allow some holiday accommodation businesses to remain open, for example to provide accommodation for key workers, NHS staff and for health and care use.

One such establishment is Carnmarth Hotel in Newquay which has been providing a place to stay for people who have been in hospital, are able to be discharged, but are not ready to go home.

However, Cornwall Council has received complaints alleging that some holiday accommodation providers are still having holiday makers in their premises and operating illegally.

Ahead of the Easter holiday the Council’s enforcement team is now writing to all holiday accommodation owners, letting agents and online booking platforms in Cornwall who are not exempt to the COVID-19 orders to ask for their cooperation in complying with the orders.

The letter, which is going out to holiday accommodation providers today (April 2), says: “As you know the Government passed legislation last week which requires certain businesses to close with immediate effect. We appreciate that you may have already acted on the Government’s directions and closed your accommodation, although there are a few exceptions which are covered in this letter. Most businesses in Cornwall have done exactly that. Indeed, we know that some businesses have been able to provide valuable support to the community by housing vulnerable people and key workers.

“Nevertheless, the Council is receiving complaints that allege that some holiday accommodation businesses are continuing to trade. This is undoubtedly a small minority, but due to the risks involved, we are taking the precaution of writing to you to seek your support in helping to control the COVID 19 outbreak in Cornwall.”

The new legislation requires any person responsible for running a business providing holiday accommodation, whether in a hotel, hostel, bed and breakfast accommodation, holiday apartment, home, cottage or bungalow, campsite, caravan park or boarding house, to cease trading during the emergency period.

The Government’s controls are expected to remain in place until the regulations are reviewed by the Secretary of State and a direction issued to end them.

In its letter to accommodation providers Cornwall Council outlines the new legal requirements and where businesses can get further advice.

It also warns that businesses can face enforcement action if they flout the orders.

Rob Nolan, Cornwall Council’s portfolio holder for environment and public protection, said: “We are calling on and trust that our holiday accommodation providers in Cornwall will do the right thing and ensure compliance with this requirement which has been introduced to protect the health of our population, NHS and other critical services at this time.

“We understand that this legislation may have serious financial impacts upon businesses so please read the guidance to understand how you can access the financial help you need.”

Malcolm Bell, Chief Executive of Visit Cornwall, said: “It’s up to all of us to play our part in fighting this virus, as well as obeying the law, and this simply means that not only should all the traditional tourism business be closed to holiday makers, but also people letting out rooms and properties on the online booking platforms that have grown rapidly over the last few years.”

Inspector Miles Topham from Devon and Cornwall Police said: “We will work closely with and support our partners in protecting the public. If people undertake non-essential travel which could include travelling to second homes then we reserve the right to take enforcement action which will be considered on a case by case basis.”

There are a number of exemptions which allow holiday accommodation businesses to remain open, including where they provide services to:
  • People who live there permanently or because their primary residence is unavailable.
  • Critical workers and non-UK residents who are unable to travel to their country of residence during this period.
  • People who are unable to move into a new home due to the current restrictions.
  • Homeless and other vulnerable people such as those who cannot safely stay in their home, through arrangements with local authorities and other public bodies.
  • Those attending a funeral.
  • Hosting of blood donation sessions.
Also, holiday accommodation can remain open for any other purpose requested by the Secretary of State or Local Authority.

A current list of exemptions can be found on the Government's website.

The government has produced guidance on business closures for further reference. However, if you require additional advice please do not hesitate to contact the Council’s Business Support Hub at businessadvice@cornwall.gov.uk

If you believe that holiday accommodation might not be complying with the new regulations then please contact Cornwall Council at businessadvice@cornwall.gov.uk.

For anyone seeking refunds due to a holiday booking cancellation Cornwall Council advises:

  • Check the small print on your booking – what does it say about cancellation due to Government intervention?
  • Check the small print on your travel insurance – will your booking be covered?
  • Register your concerns with your holiday provider – are they working to a timetable (ie most imminent bookings first)? What are they suggesting as a solution? But please be patient as businesses have to deal with many pressures at this current time.
  • If you paid for your holiday by credit card you may have additional protection through the credit card provider.
1.       
If you do still need further advice or information about cancelling a booking due to Covid-19 please call the Citizens Advice Consumer Service on 03454 040506 or contact Cornwall Council Trading Standards at businesscompliance@cornwall.gov.uk.

Cornwall Council will be working with Visit Cornwall when this emergency period is over to support those affected.

All latest government advice on Coronavirus is available at www.gov.uk/coronavirus  


The address of any properties flouting this needs to be sent to me so that it can be sent to the emergency team.

Take care and stay safe,
Many thanks,

Perranuthnoe Covid-19 Village Updates

It has been pointed out on a post to Perrans Facebook page that people are still arriving to holiday lets or second homes in the village.

This is absolutely sickening and a totally disgraceful act by the people coming down and the holiday let owners themselves.

It is quite clear that the holiday let owners care nothing about the lives of the people of Perran or Cornwall, they only care about the money in their pockets.

Maybe we should name and shame them? And even go as far as refusing to work for them, cleaning, gardening etc. in the future?

Here is the text from the post to our Facebook page:

I am amazed by quite how many people are STILL arriving to holiday lets or second homes in the village. Also, I can't believe how many holiday let owners from out of the village who are still allowing bookings as early as next week trying to cash in on Easter! I can only assume these people are watching a different news channel and/or haven't listened to friends working on the front line for the NHS!

On a more positive note, it has been so lovely to see the Perran residents continue to help each other out and show the true value what is like to be part of a community and not just see the village as an investment opportunity.

And to those of you that think it is OK to bag your dog mess up and then throw it in the hedge, what on earth do you think you're doing!? This is NOT responsible dog ownership. If you are too ashamed to carry your bag of dog mess with you and dispose of it in the bins provided then maybe you shouldn't have a dog?

On another note, here's something to keep the old grey cells going. There are 39 Beatles song titles in this image, can you find them?



Stay home. Stay safe. Save Lives. Smile 😄

Perranuthnoe Covid-19 Village Updates

We are all going through a really difficult time at the moment. Stuck indoors, no work, no money, deadly virus outside! It's hard to keep from feeling anxious. We are all washing our hands, distancing ourselves from others and trying to keep healthy. While we are busy doing all that it's easy to neglect the mind. Don't forget, it needs looking after too.

While our desire to be informed is good we are no good to ourselves or anyone else if we are pouring from an empty cup. If following the news is making you anxious, switch off for a while. Limit yourself to one or two checks per day, and not just before bed!

Make time for soothing activities to help you relax and heal. Things that you enjoy doing, or have done in the past worked well for you before they are likely to be the most helpful to you now.

It's OK to smile in fact it is more than OK. Studies have shown that smiling releases endorphins, which are natural painkillers, and serotonin. These neurotransmitters make us feel good from head to toe. Not only do these natural chemicals elevate your mood, but they also relax your body and reduce physical pain. So go ahead and SMILE 😄

Some stockpiling suggestions:

Kindness
Empathy
Support
Encouragement
Compassion
Positivity
Love


Stay home. Stay safe. Save Lives. Smile 😄

Clap For Our Carers

Today, March 26 at 8pm, everyone is invited to applaud those looking after our loved ones from their windows, doorsteps or balconies.




Cornwall Councillor: Cllr. Sue Nicholls

Subject: Dogs on leads

We’ve had complaints about dogs ‘running wild’ and people ending up in closer contact with the dog owner than they want. So we’re putting the following out on Social Media, and looking into the possibility of putting some signs up in ‘hot spots’.

To help observe social distancing, we are strongly advising dog walkers to keep their dogs on leads when in public areas or on beaches. Should one dog go up to another, or towards other people, and the owner has to retrieve it there is a risk of closer contact than is safe. Please observe this simple rule to help prevent the spread of Covid 19.



Penzance Police

Essential journey?
Driving to exercise at another location is NOT an essential journey! Yesterday we stopped and checked over 150 vehicles in the Penzance, Hayle and St Ives area. Drivers were asked if their journey was essential. We will continue to carry out these checks because, like you, we want to keep Cornwall safe. Please share and let’s keep travel to an absolute minimum.

https://www.facebook.com/PenzancePolice/



Marazion Surgery

We have been overwhelmed with prescription requests recently. We understand that people are worried but please do not stock pile medication, or indeed request it when you do not need it. We are not able to issue more than a month supply of medication at one time.

PLEASE register for our online service to request medications as this is the most efficient way for staff at this very busy time. The application form and further information can be found on our website by clicking a link to 'The Waiting Room'. The dispensary telephone line is very busy so please avoid using this unless absolutely necessary.

Link to information on online services - https://www.marazionsurgery.com/prescriptions1.aspx?t=4

Link to the application form for online services - https://www.marazionsurgery.com/website/L82047/files/TWR%20Application%20Form.pdf?fbclid=IwAR2oHH_zI1HXWF8yoXBN336ciBzEj85H9uGoLbsB_jDFbPDlBL3E19HSiBM

Requests for medication can be dropped at the surgery without entering the building. There is a post box by the side door to the right of the building or just inside the surgery main doors.

We are operating our dispensary through the window straight into the car park, to avoid people having to enter the surgery itself and to keep risks to a minimum.

Perranuthnoe Covid-19 Village Updates

Thought it would be nice to share with you all a lovely message from Yvonne:

Hi there, a few thoughts for today, we are so fortunate to live in such a wonderful community. 

The Perran Tree seems to be working well, with lots of help being offered and used.

I feel it is so important to support everybody, especially people who will, no doubt, be under extreme stress, so I guess we should be even more tolerant than usual.  

I understand that the police have been stopping drivers on the Marazion bypass and today visited the village to keep their eyes on things for us.  

If we handle this situation with love and tolerance we will all come through this dreadful situation with a village even more connected than before.  

My love to you all. Yvonne 710070.  Anybody needing a chat - ring me.



Stay home. Stay safe. Save Lives.

A message from Newquay Police:



The Victoria Inn

The show must go on!

Thank you all so much for your patience. What started life as a simple idea to help the village has had a few logistical spanner’s thrown into the mix this past week!

We have now made a plan that shouldn’t change (unless the government make calls that squash our pop up shop totally). We want to help as much as we can, but we have to do so it a sensible way. By this we mean not ordering loads of produce in and hoping it all sells. We also have to exercise great caution, protecting ourselves and you, the customers. We also have limited staff volunteering to run the shop... thanks Olli & Sophie! The shop will be open (initially) Wednesdays and Saturdays.

So here’s our plan!

PRE ORDER YOUR SUPPLIES

We request you pre order the supplies you would like. This can be done via facebook messenger or email. Your pre order must be with us before 3pm on Tuesday or Friday and can be collected between 11am & 1pm on Wednesday or Saturday.

DELIVERY

Although we urge people to try and collect you pre orders from us at the Victoria inn so payment is as ‘risk free’ as possible, we can offer delivery to those who really need it. This will be cash on collection and we ask the correct amount of money is put in an envelope or something similar and left in the in agreed drop off/pick up point.

PAYMENT

We strongly encourage cashless payment. Card payments can be made at a safe distance on collection. Cash will only be accepted as a last resort and we really don’t want to be collecting cash for obvious reasons!

REQUESTS

We can source other things you may want/need too within reason. Please drop us a message with your pre order and we’ll see what we can do!

GIVE SOMETHING BACK

The Victoria Inn and the community it serves is family as far as we’re concerned! We don’t expect anything in return for our services and wish everyone to stay safe and healthy! We do however feel strongly about supporting the NHS. They are well and truly up to their eyeballs working night and day through this madness and their heroism seems to be constantly brushed under the carpet...

So, let’s give something back to the unsung heroes of this country. Click the link at the bottom of the page to donate 🙂

We hope this all makes sense and thank you for baring with us.

For pre orders or and questions please email jamie@victoriainn-Penzance.co.uk or message us on our Facebook page.

Stay safe folks & stay classy

Team Vic

Perranuthnoe Covid-19 Village Updates

So here we are, the UK is on a lockdown. Following last nights address by Boris we all now find ourselves having to follow stricter rules. A lot of us were doing this anyway but many more were not. Let us hope this latest development does the trick and that people abide by it to slow and stop the spread of this virus as much as possible. For the sake of our NHS as well as our own and loved ones lives.

Many, many people are, or will suffer financially as businesses close and jobs are lost. This is an awful and very worrying time for everyone. We must stay strong, know that we are all in it together and be there for each other with love and understanding albeit from a distance. Look out for your neighbours, your friends, your family and loved ones. Keep in telephone and or digital contact as much as possible.

Remember, the virus doesn't move, people move it. We stop moving, the virus stops moving, the virus dies. It's that simple. We got this 💪😎

On the brighter side of things, we can now all officially take an afternoon nap! 😄

Stay home. Stay safe.

Here are today's updates:





Ramblers And Dog Walkers Please Take Note




Pirate FM

A doctor working in the emergency department at Treliske is urging any tourists in Cornwall to self-isolate amid the coronavirus outbreak.

For those tourists who have already arrived in Cornwall, Dr Lucy Obolensky is urging them to self-isolate for seven days, saying she fears Cornwall's health services will not be able to cope in the coming days.

She says visitors should not go to the shops or go for a walk, but to stay inside and have any provisions delivered instead.

Dr Lucy Obolensky, Treliske Emergency Department

https://www.piratefm.co.uk/news/latest-news/3068576/doctor-urges-any-tourists-in-cornwall-to-self-isolate/


Cornwall Council

Following the announcement this morning regarding the closure of Household Waste and Recycling Centres in Cornwall, residents are urged to act responsibly and reminded not to dump waste or recycling outside the gates, as this constitutes fly tipping which carries serious penalties.





The Cabin Beach Cafe

The Cabin has now officially closed.





The Victoria Inn price list for their pop-up shop.


Cornish Cars

It is with huge regret that we are having to withdraw our offer made last week to collect things for people who are self isolating as our household now falls into that category. We are very sorry to do this but we are not prepared to chance it and put others at risk. Stay safe everybody.


Fawkes Feeds and Livery

Fawkes will be remaining OPEN for the purchase of all your animal and pet feeds.

If possible phone ahead to order and pay for your products (01736-719170) give us your car registration details.

If this is not possible, come into the car park but do not get out of your vehicle. We will come to you.

We will load your purchase for you.

Stay in your vehicle, this is as much for your protection as it is for us.



National Trust car parks will be closed by the end of Tuesday 24 March in a further attempt to help restrict the spread of coronavirus and to encourage the public to stay local and observe social distancing. 

The move comes as the Trust ramps up its efforts to help the nation fight the spread of the virus, which has already seen it temporarily close its houses, shops, cafes, parks and gardens.

Perranuthnoe Covid-19 Help And Support

Hope you are all keeping yourselves safe and well. Here are today's updates:

Marazion Surgery

* IMPORTANT - Please share *

There appears to be a post circulating on social media in regard to contacting your GP for an ‘emergency pack or rescue pack’ if you suffer with either COPD or asthma, which contains antibiotics and steroids.

The post is inaccurate and dangerous. GP surgeries are not routinely offering these 'emergency packs'. If we do so, the system will collapse and we would be unable to cope with the level of demand it would create. We will run out of essential medication for those who truly need it.

Please could patients request their regular medication as normal.

If people are well, they must not request 'emergency/rescue packs'.

If unwell, contact your surgery to receive a telephone ring back from a GP who can make a clinical decision as to whether these treatments are appropriate.

If you think you are showing signs and symptoms of coronavirus (raised temperature and/or a new continuous cough) please self-isolate, and contact NHS 111 online.

Please help us keep the NHS going - don’t share misinformation.

Thank you - Marazion Surgery Team
