Citizens Advice Cornwall (CAC)

Provides information which may be useful people in your communities, such as practical advice on avoiding scams, a new project to help people save money on their fuel bills and the Wise-Up! scheme, aimed at those not in employment, education or training to learn basic money skills. The CAC newsletter contains important information about how people in Cornwall can access our free, confidential and independent services. Family Factsheets on how to budget, save money and keep out of debt.

Taking Control of Your Money

How you can improve your budgeting and reduce family spending

BUDGETING

You can use online budgeting tools, planners and guides, including calculators, that help you plan for life changes, such as having a baby, getting married or just planning for Christmas.

www.citizensadvice.org.uk/debt-and-money/budgeting/budgeting/work-out-your-budget

MORTGAGES

Reducing Your Mortgage Costs: If you’re struggling to pay your mortgage, you must take action quickly to stop yourself from falling into debt.

If you get into debt and your lender thinks you’re not dealing with the problem, they will take action through the courts. This could lead to you losing your home.

You could look at switching to a cheaper mortgage or insurance deal, cutting down your monthly payments or changing payments on your endowment policy.

Find out how on our website https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/debt-and-money/mortgage-problems/how-to-sort-out-your-mortgage-problems/cutting-down-your-mortgage-costs/

If you’re having serious difficulties paying your mortgage, for example, if you’ve started getting letters from your lender threatening court action, you should get help from an experienced debt adviser, such as the Citizens Advice Cornwall Debt Team – Text ADVICE DEBT to 78866.

 COUNCIL TAX BILLS:

If you’re on a low income, you may be entitled to help from your council towards paying your council tax. In some cases you may be entitled to money off your council tax bill, or you may not have to pay council tax at all (called an exemption).

See cornwall.gov.uk/council-tax/get-money-off-your-council-tax/ for details. You can also ask your local authority to spread the cost of your council tax over 12 months instead of 10 cornwall.gov.uk/council-and-democracy/council-tax

SAVE ON INSURANCE

Shop around for the best insurance deals for all of your insurance; including your house (building and contents), life, car, travel and health (check out www.moneysavingexpert.com/insurance for ideas). Review your policies to see if you still need them or check whether they provide more cover than you need.  

If you’re worried about your debts, seek help from our specialist debt team as soon as you can for free, independent and confidential advice and support. Just text ADVICE DEBT to 78866.

A new Mayor and Deputy Mayor for St Just in Penwith Town Council

Posted on: 19th May 2021 |

At the Town’s Annual meeting on 17th May 2021, the first task of the new Council was to elect a new Mayor and Deputy Mayor. There was a unanimous vote for Councillor Sue James to be Mayor and Councillor Daisy Carlyon Gibbs to become Deputy Mayor.

At the end of the meeting they donned their chains to capture the moment with the backdrop in the Library perhaps suggesting they are becoming the community’s partners in Crime!

Later Sue said “I’m sure our first photo captures that we want to be seen as just ordinary fun loving, passionate folk serving our community as we emerge from the difficult period of the pandemic. I hope that my experience will blend with Daisy’s youth and boundless energy to meet the challenges ahead and serve our community well.”

Daisy was visibly thrilled and honoured to be chosen for the role, wanting to throw herself into it and give a positive role model to younger people in the Parish; to get them involved in local decision making and consider stepping up to be a Councillor, perhaps to fill one of 4 current vacancies.
