The removal of free TV licences for the over-75s

Posted on: 4th August 2020 |

There is much concern locally and nationally about the removal of free TV licences for the over-75s, which came into effect on 1st August, despite a major campaign by Age UK and other organisations. The first step towards helping some of those affected by this is to encourage all over-75s to apply for Pension Credit, as this would enable free TV licences as well as an increased income.

Cornwall Council special road signs for St Just were taken last week

Posted on: 4th August 2020 |

Cornwall Council special road signs for St Just, were put in place just over three weeks ago to protect pedestrians in St Just by slowing the traffic, they were taken sometime over the weekend.  If anyone has any information about their unauthorised removal, please contact the Police or Cornwall Council or Town Council.

 

These signs were the key part of the Town Council Coronavirus safety plan which was based on widespread support from residents and businesses to reduce the speed of traffic through the town, to protect pedestrians at a time of social distancing.  We had been relieved that there had been no accidents despite very busy conditions in the town, and it seemed clear that the signage was working in slowing the traffic. “Why would anyone take away road signs put in place to keep people safe?  It makes no sense.  The Town Council are concerned about the risk to its pedestrians while social distancing continues, if we can’t continue to reduce traffic speed.

The Town Council would appeal to whoever took the signs to return them quickly, please. They can be left outside Clemo’s Top Shop in Fore Street, or outside the Library in Market Street, or simply put back where they were taken from, so that the signs can continue to keep our residents safe.”

Supporting our town as more people arrive and more businesses open

Posted on: 24th June 2020 |

At the Town Council meeting on Monday 22nd June, councillors unanimously agreed to pursue the proposal of an advisory 20mph speed restriction through the town, together with signage warning that there may be pedestrians in the road.  

This follows several weeks of consulting with residents and businesses in the town, and this was the proposal which attracted widespread support. 

Speed of traffic through the town has concerned residents for some time, so this is an opportunity to introduce a reduced limit as a temporary measure, with financial support from Cornwall Council, helping us build evidence towards a more permanent change. This change is aimed at safety, as the town becomes busier after lockdown.

We are now working to implement the speed restriction and signage as soon as possible.

We’d like to thank the many people who took the time to share their opinions and ideas with us, and hope that the approaching summer will be safe for our residents as well as successful for our businesses.

St Just in Bloom

Posted on: 15th June 2020 |

St Just in Bloom have decided to go ahead with both the Gardening and Photographic Competitions this year. Many people have had more time to spend on their gardens this spring, and the Gardening competition should be a strong one. The theme for the Photographic competition is ‘Climate Change and Me’. We are looking for a few more entries this year, perhaps taken during your daily exercise.

Application forms will be available from Clemo’s at the end of next week. Judging will take place on Thursday 6th August. Good luck!
