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:


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.

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.

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.

If you would like anything included in these updates please just let me know. Email updates go out at 6pm. Please let me know by 5pm latest to be included.

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 💪😎
