Community support & help

This page will be used where there is something being done specifically in or for our parish.  If you want to get something added please email it to clerk@mawnan.org.uk  or mawnandiary.gmail.com

The facebook site have received a number of DM and posts offering help - pages hide these from most of the followers so they have set up a group so that people can make offers or request help as we move into a period of increased social distancing and social isolation. Please join and share. If anyone has capacity to assist with admin of the page then please shout and I will add you. You can find the page hereMawnan Smith Self Isolation Community Support
