As Covid-19 cases continue to rise across Cornwall, Cornwall Council is holding a live Covid-19 public health update at 2pm on Friday, 8th January via Facebook Live

Cornwall Council Portfolio Holder for Children, Wellbeing and Public Health             Councillor Sally Hawken  Cornwall Council’s Director of Public Health,                Rachel Wigglesworth and  Public Health Consultant  Dr Ruth Goldstein,

will present the latest Covid-19 data for Cornwall and take your questions.



You must stay at home. The single most important action we can all take is to Stay at home to Protect the NHS and Save lives.

You should follow this guidance immediately. The law will be updated to reflect these new rules.

Leaving home

You must not leave, or be outside of your home except where necessary. You may leave the home to:

  • shop for basic necessities, for you or a vulnerable person
  • go to work, or provide voluntary or charitable services, if you cannot reasonably do so from home
  • exercise with your household (or support bubble) or one other person, this should be limited to once per day, and you should not travel outside your local area.
  • meet your support bubble or childcare bubble where necessary, but only if you are legally permitted to form one
  • seek medical assistance or avoid injury, illness or risk of harm (including domestic abuse)
  • attend education or childcare – for those eligible

Colleges, primary and secondary schools will remain open only for vulnerable children and the children of critical workers. All other children will learn remotely until February half term. Early Years settings remain open.

Higher Education provision will remain online until mid February for all except future critical worker courses.

If you do leave home for a permitted reason, you should always stay local in the village, town, or part of the city where you live. You may leave your local area for a legally permitted reason, such as for work.

If you are clinically extremely vulnerable you should only go out for medical appointments, exercise or if it is essential. You should not attend work

Meeting others

You cannot leave your home to meet socially with anyone you do not live with or are not in a support bubble with (if you are legally permitted to form one).

You may exercise on your own, with one other person, or with your household or support bubble.

You should not meet other people you do not live with, or have formed a support bubble with, unless for a permitted reason.

Stay 2 metres apart from anyone not in your household.

You can find the full rules on the website

St Breward Carnival

‘not the biggest Carnival in Cornwall but certianly the highest’

Carnival Christmas Cheer  Well it was a funny old year so St Breward Carnival decided that we all need some Christmas Cheer!!  The community has always supported Carnival events and activities and this year the Carnival Committee did their own version of the Postcode Lottery to show their appreciation of this and to cheer everyone up


There was no entry fee and the prizes were 40 yes 40!  £25 gift vouchers to be redeemed at St Breward Stores, The Old Inn, Nicolas’s Mobile Catering and Button Meats

A Random Number Generator App was used to ‘draw out’ the house names of 40 lucky recipients. With just over 400 households being eligible (excluding Second/Holiday and Carnival Committee members homes), there was about a one in 10 chance of winning a voucher!

The draw was made in early December and the successful recipients were socially distanced visited by a Carnival Committed Member who delivered the vouchers

All the Winners!  John & Alison Hoskin, Janet Harrington, Fiona Hamilton, Tamsin Keat, Peter Sutton, Daniel Bate, Tina Walsh, Robin & Gill Barber, Kelly Northcott, Andrew &Nicola Dingle, Steve Kirby, Michael grundon, Hope Bendell, James & Naomi Guilfoyle, Shannon Hobart, Roy Burt, Teresa Philp, Mr & Mrs Meneer, Peter & Cheryl Cottle, Marilyn Hunter, Jen Cootes, James & Rachel Mosley, Marg Morrish, Mrs Stein, Keith & Hazel Glover,Jeremy & caroline Hooper, Nancy Hall, Jane Huston, Gillian Walsh & Ivor Hemmings, Michelle May & daughter Beth, Stuart & Alison Hayward, Victor & Jean Teague, Sue Winfield, Caz Buck, Michael Stringer, Andrew Finnemore, Ivor & Jan Chivers, Sonia Warren, Philip Crichton Jeannie Sutcliffe

Reindeer Food Supporting the Christmas Lights Group and to ensure that all reindeers were fed on Christmas Eve, the Carnival Commitete provided 130 bags of Reindeer Food which was distributed round the village mainly through School

The Carnival Committee are already thinking about Carnival Day 2021 which hopefully will be on Saturday 3rd July

St Breward Remembreance 2020

On Remembrance Sunday 8th November, Loveday Davies (a member of St Breward Band) played the Lost Post and Reveille outside her home in Limehead and wreaths were laid at the War Memorial on Mine Hill by Dominic Fairman on behalf of Cornwall Council and Alan Rowe on behalf of the British Legion Cornwall

Due to ongoing restrictions the usual combined service could not be held in the Parish Church on Remembrance Sunday or at the War Memorial on Remembrance Day. However, on Remembrance Day, at the War Memorial on Mine Hill, a simple (non- advertised) wreath laying ceremony was carried out.

Phil Nance read out the names on the memorial, the Last Post and Reveille was played (recorded music), wreaths were laid by Joe Kay on behalf of the community and Pat Lismore on behalf of the WI, a wreath made by the Brownies and Guides was laid before the service. Crosses were laid by Roy Coombes on behalf of the Rifles (formerly the DCLI), Anna and David Corns and Judith Nance.  As the sound of the Last Post faded away a lone bell ringer (Bill Hill) tolled the bell in St Breward Church Tower.   Following the wreath laying, Churchwarden Jeremy Hooper, laid a wreath at the bottom of the War Memorial in the Church.

During November people visiting the church for private prayer are able to see the Remembrance displays made by Fran Calver, some of which featured the locally made poppies from earlier years
