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.

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.
