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

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

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
