News from The Christmas Lights Group

We understand that Christmas is going to be a bit different this year so are hoping that we can do our best to keep the village feeling as festive as possible.
Following the fantastic response in 2019, are going to be running the Advent Calendar Christmas Window competition again this year.  £5 to enter and all you have to do is make sure that your Christmas themed decorative window is lit up for the village to see on your designated day in December.
We will also be running a virtual quiz on the 20th November via Zoom. £5 per team to enter with a prize for the winning team. All those interested please email stbrewardchristmaslights@gmail.com and you will be provided with an invite link to join the quiz. Zoom is a free downloadable app which can be downloaded on a computer, phone or tablet device and will allow everyone to join in electronically.
The following video explains how you can join a Zoom meeting but please let us know if you need help or have any questions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vFhAEoCF7jg

Hedgehogs and bonfires

Please remember to check under your bonfires before lighting them: hedgehogs hibernate in piles of twigs, leaves,etc so to a hedgehog, a bonfire looks like a good place to sleep over winter.

Hedgehog numbers are falling in the UK – please don’t make it worse for them.

Christmas edition of the Parish magazine

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 by 6pm 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.

Please email all items to stbparishmag@hotmail.co.uk

Stay safe in these challenging times.

Cornwall Council Information Packs

Counwall Council has provided three informaion packs for local communities:

  • 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:
  • finances
  • council tax
  • food provision
  • 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.”
