The Parish Council are making plans to reopen village services provided by them - 

The Junior Playing Field has re-opened (8/7) to all our users after having been thoroughly cleaned and additional signage put up .  We cannot arrange to have the equipment cleaned down after each user so are asking that ANYONE showing symptoms refrain from using the play area and that anyone falling ill within 72 hours of using the equipment let the Parish Council know so we can close up and arrange to deep clean again (equipment will be regularly disinfected on Monday mornings)

Public Toilets - the disabled toilets are now permanently open and we hope to have the rest of the public toilets open by w/b 13/7 -  sanitiser points have gone up outside but we ask you only use these if visiting the toilets, not just passing. 

Carwinion Field - If any group of less that 6 want to use the space at Carwinion Field to allow them to meet up in a socially distanced manner you are all welcome; if you do have a group/bubble meeting socially we ask you try to make a boundary (we hope to get some posts & rope up soon just for this) so it's doesn't look like large groups are forming.  You can bring camping chairs, towels or mats to sit on but we ask that you take everything home with you. Remember there are currently no toilets or hand-washing facilities available.

Easing of Lockdown Restriction - 23rd June 2020

From Saturday 4th July, the Prime Minister has announced that pubs, restaurants and hairdressers will be able to reopen, providing they adhere to COVID Secure guidelines.

From the same date, he has set out that two households will be able to meet up in any setting with social distancing measures, and that people can now enjoy staycations in England with the reopening of accommodation sites. 

In order to begin restoring the arts and cultural sector, some leisure facilities and tourist attractions may also reopen, if they can do so safely – this includes outdoor gyms and playgrounds, cinemas, museums, galleries, theme parks and arcades, as well as libraries, social clubs, places of worship and community centres.

Where it is not possible to stay two metres apart, guidance will allow people to keep a social distance of ‘one metre plus’. This means staying one metre apart, plus mitigations which reduce the risk of transmission.

The Government will keep all measures under constant review and will not hesitate to apply the handbrake, or reverse measures, should the virus begin to run out of control.


From Saturday 1 August

  • the guidance will then be relaxed so clinically extremely vulnerable people will no longer be advised to shield, but support will remain available from NHS volunteers and local councils. People will retain their priority for supermarket delivery slots, and still be able to access help with shopping, medication, phone calls and transport to medical appointments.
  • those who need to work and cannot do so from home will be able to return to work as long as their workplace is COVID secure, adhering to the guidance available.


Driving round Mawnan following the easing of restrictions

23rd June-  Now that restrictions allowing more freedom of movement, opening up business and some outdoor activity spaces are to take effect we still need to be cautious on our rural roads and ask drivers to remain mindful whilst driving in our parish.  There are still more walkers and cyclist than usual and we need to act accordingly whilst driving.  There is also a lot more roadside vegetation - there being little highways cutting done to date - so there are instances when pedestrians will be further out into the road that drivers may think necessary.

Can we also have some consideration when parking up - if the immediate carpark is full please consider going somewhere else to visit.  Do not just park on the side of the road, in a field gateway or across someone's drive - we all need to allow access.  Especially, do not park in fields simply because gates have been left open - it is not an invitation.
