The Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly Health and Care Partnership has have worked with people in St Ives and Penwith. This work has told them that the Edward Hain Community Hospital is no longer able to provide health and care.

It’s important that everyone has had a chance to get involved and share their ideas before NHS Kernow Clinical Commissioning Group’s Governing Body makes a formal decision. To help make a decision, click or tap on the small image to the right and consider the questions it asks.

Town Councillor Daisy Gibbs receives Civic Award from Chairman of Cornwall Council Hilary Frank

The Cornwall Civic Award Crest

Daisy Gibbs has thrown herself into our local community from birth! Whether performing in the local pantomime or taking her place on the streets of St Just during the annual Lafrowda Festival, more recently being a member of the organising committee.

On her 30th birthday, in 2018, she had her head publicly shaved, raising £7,000 for Penhaligans friends. She also donated her hair to make wigs for children undergoing cancer treatments.

She is a fundraiser to replace St Just Skate Park and is known locally as an environmentalist. She was involved with St Just becoming plastic free and recently set up a monthly Care and Repair café.

She is an active member of Extinction Rebellion, taking part in action in London, striving towards a sustainable lifestyle off grid and helping others in the community make changes in their lives.

Her goal, from her election leaflet: “To support and encourage young people to be more involved in our community and also help St Just and Pendeen become self-sustaining towns. I really believe in helping each other and working together and that isn’t hard to realise in this, the most fantastic of communities.”

Daisy is an inspiration to other young women to be active community members and perhaps stand for election. In these unprecedented times she set up a network of wardens (around 100) to ensure every street has a contact if they need help. She achieved this as we went into lockdown. Her name is Daisy so it was called our Daisy Chain network. She has also become Chair of the Voluntary Committee responsible for the Nancherrow Youth Centre and project.

Sustainable Future – Co-Car Car Club in the St Just/Pendeen Area?

The Co-Cars Car Club could be the way to reduce levels of car ownership and enable people to hire electric bikes

Co-Cars Car Club logo

Co-cars car club provides its members with the convenience of a car without the hassles and costs of ownership. Members pay for a car only when they want to use one. Ideal for occasional drivers, short trippers and families who want to get rid of or can’t afford a second vehicle. Local businesses, residents and visitors can all benefit.

We want to know whether there is enough interest to have a car based in the St Just/ Pendeen area or perhaps Penzance.

To see whether our community could sustain a car and/ or a bike, please complete the survey:
