Cornwall Council mends potholes!!                                                                               Yes it’s true but only if people report the whereabouts of potholes – or other ‘highway’ problems

Cornwall Council is responsible for over 7272km (4545 miles) of roads, from major principal roads to narrow country lanes – this includes repairing potholes.

So if there is a pothole outside your property, where you work, shop, visit the Doctors, Dentists,  Hairdressers, Vets, Church, Chapel, Pub, Restaurant or Fish & Chip Shop let Cornwall Council know about it and they can put it on the list for repair.

To report problems with a road, highway or footway contact Highways here 

You may be asked to give an estimate of the surface area of the pothole and its depth and a photo – the need to report a pothole is more important than putting yourself in danger checking these details.  Remember to note the reference number you are given which will enable you to follow the progress of your report

If you need to report something that is causing an immediate danger or is an emergency please call 0300 1234 222

Cornwall Council’s Cornwall’s Climate Stories Film Premeire

Cornwall Council is launching the first episode of Cornwall’s Climate Stories – a series of factual but inspirational documentaries about climate change in Cornwall, online at 8pm on Thursday 25th February

But it also offers inspirational and motivating stories about great projects happening around the county to tackle the challenges that climate change is going to bring.

The event will be introduced by the filmmakers and will be followed by a Q&A session – providing an opportunity to put questions to and learn more from the marine experts featured in the film as well as Cllr Edwina Hannaford, Cornwall Council portfolio holder for climate change and neighbourhoods.

To register for the premiere, please sign up  here You will then be sent the link to access the screening a couple of days before the event. You can also see the trailer for the whole series here:

From 26th Fenruary the film will be free to view here

Scam warning from Devon & Cornwall Police

‘We have received reports of residents receiving scam cold calls regarding their National Insurance number.
The person calling informs the resident that their National Insurance number has been compromised or used in some way, or a variation of this, and that a new National Insurance number will need to be issued. Personal details are asked for.
Please be cautious of any unexpected calls. If you have any doubts about what is being asked of you or instructed by a cold caller, hang up the phone. A legitimate company or organisation will not put pressure on you or rush you.
If you have passed on any personal information to a cold caller please phone Action Fraud on 0300 123 2040 or make a report via the
action fraud website
If you have given out any financial information please phone your bank or building society immediately and then make contact with Action Fraud.’

In January 2020, the Cornwall AONB launched the Monumental Improvement Project, an initiative to help stabilise 40 Scheduled Monuments across Cornwall and which are listed on Historic England’s Heritage at Risk register or classified as vulnerable.

The monuments that are in our Parish are Emblance Stone Circles and King Arthur’s Hall;  you can see the Cornwall AONB Unit’s Consultation Programme here

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
