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.
If you run a company which may be interested and would like your name added to the list then please forward your contact details to Elaine Baker, Town Clerk via the email email@example.com

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.

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.
The Town Council at its Extraordinary Meeting on 8 December 2015 agreed to call a public meeting to seek the views of the local community on the future of St Just Library which forms part of an outline business case to Cornwall Council on a devolution proposal to rationalise services and assets within the parish.

The Town Council at its meeting on 7 April 2015 took the unanimous decision to ban dogs from the Plain-an-Gwarry, St Just due to the potential health risks to the public following an increase in dog fouling in that area. The Plain-an-Gwarry, is a protected scheduled ancient monument, used to host a variety of public events and the increase in dog fouling was causing the Council considerable cause for concern.
The Plain-an-Gwarry is owned by the Town Council and it is for the use of all the residents in St Just. At the present moment mindless individuals are letting their dogs foul within this grassed area and they are spoiling it for the vast majority of people.
Kevin McFadden, Town Mayor has said that “If this continues the Town Council will take necessary legal action to have dogs banned from the Plain.”
