The Parish Magazine Committee is very pleased to announce that they will be doing a Winter Special of the Parish Magazine. The plan is that it will be out for the 1st December.
Therefore they are asking you to get any contributions into them by6pm on Tuesday 10th November
The Committee wants this next issue to be another bumper edition, therefore they would like you to talk to your members and get photos, articles, dates and details to us.
Again, they want the Special to be bright, positive, colourful, cheerful, amusing, so send them your fun stories, photos and what you have planned for 2021. Everyone will all admit 2020 has been a dismal year, so instead of reminding ourselves of what we have missed out on, lets talk about all you have achieved, done and want to do next year.
All the contributions don’t have to be news from your group as a whole, so if a member has done or achieved something amazing, let people know in our villagers. Send their details and photos (remember, MUST be .jpeg format, we need the name of the photographer, who is in the photo, and if there are any children, you must have the parents consent)
If you think someone does need to be recognised or thanked for what they have done for your organisation or an individual in the village (e.g. collecting shopping for others etc.), please do send them details. Let’s praise our heroes!
They look forward to receiving all your news, plans and photographs and hearing and seeing all you’ve done and want to achieve.
Counwall Council has provided three informaion packs for local communities:
A community pack. This will be made available to community groups across the county. It will help them to make sure residents, including the most vulnerable, have access to the right support. It contains information and advice on issues such as:
help for those facing eviction
how to access a COVID-19 test
A business pack. This is aimed at any organisation that employs staff, including schools and charities. The pack provides general information on the support available to businesses. It also features guidance on what to do if one or more employees test positive for coronavirus.
A self-isolation pack. This is aimed at reassuring residents that support is available throughout their period of home isolation. Including a £500 support grant for people on lower incomes.
This pack also reminds people:
what self-isolation means
why it is important
how long it needs to be maintained depending on symptoms, household bubbles, NHS Test and Trace contact and test results
“We’ve been fortunate so far in Cornwall as we’ve seen relatively few COVID-19 cases compared to other areas of the country but we can’t afford to be complacent. With this in mind I would urge everyone to keep following public health guidance, however difficult this might be. We know it can be a struggle. These three packs will help community groups, businesses and residents access vital help and support provided by the council and its partners.”
“It is crucial that everyone plays their part in sticking to the rules and guidance so we can keep infection rates down and stay on top of the virus here in Cornwall.”
Positive People offers a lifeline to people who are not in work to build confidence and hope.
Have fun, get involved…we offer people a chance to get involved in their communities and have fun through a range of activities
