As a consequence of devolution discussions between the Town Council and Cornwall Council it is likely that the Town Council will be taking on additional services in the future ranging from environmental services such as grass cutting, public toilets & car parks/ open spaces / playing fields / weed spraying / footpath maintenance etc. to mention just a few.

The Town Council wishes to put together a list of contractors it could contact to seek quotations / tenders in the future.

C.T.I.P.A Registered Charity No. 1147642

 

HELP FOR PEOPLE IN FINANCIAL CRISIS

 For Information Ring:

07950 159841

 VOUCHERS AVAILABLE AT YOUR DOCTOR’S SURGERIES, NURSERIES, SCHOOLS

 If you have no transport, food can be delivered to you

Important Information to Help Support our Community

The Foodbank in Penzance has been supporting our local Communities for a number of years now, and each week the collection boxes in the Co-Operative , St. Just and the Costcutter Store in Pendeen contribute to the food, household and personal items that are distributed in this part of West Penwith.

For the generous support of our community in maintaining the Foodbank, very many thanks.

Recently it was realised that the difficulty and cost of transporting food, and other essential items for a family, from Penzance to out-lying areas such as St Just and Pendeen may be deterring people from asking for support from the Foodbank.  To this end, we would like to make sure that people know that they can ask for Foodbank goods to be delivered to them.  They will be asked to ring the Foodbank number and give their order and this order will be delivered to their house, and their vouchers collected. We regret that it’s not possible for our car drivers to take people to the Foodbank to collect their food for insurance reasons.

If you need support from the Foodbank please don’t hesitate to call 07950 159841, and someone will explain how it all works and what to do next . If you are in crisis the Foodbank responds very quickly.

Community Performers Wanted

Posted on: 16th February 2016 | No Comments

The 1st July 2016 marks the 100th anniversary of the first day of the Battle of the Somme.  On this one day alone in 1916 the British casualties totalled nearly 58,000 troops, with over 19,000 killed.

As part of the First World War Centenary commemoration, and the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site’s Tinth anniversary programme, a remarkable event will take place near the cliff tops at Levant Mine in Cornwall.  Produced by Collective Arts Ltd, a theatre company that specialises in large scale community productions, The Trench is a cultural event that explores the contribution made by Cornish miners serving on the Front Line during the First World War. 

The production is in partnership with Levant Mine and the National Trust, Cornish Mining World Heritage Site, Miracle Theatre, Tremough University and local schools in Penwith.  Research is well underway and locals in Penwith, the St Just and Pendeen Old Cornwall Society, along with students from Tremough are helping uncover information relevant to the production.

The company are looking for physically fit individuals to rehearse as community performers for the event.  Their task will be to guide the participants throughout the performance.  Rehearsals will take place in St Just-in-Penwith and begin in May 2016. 

Please contact Jason Squibb through www.collectivearts.org.uk for further details.
