Just in case Christmas is catching up with you and Tuesday Outreach Postoffice services are not enough ... the Post Office are now providing a home collection service for those of you online (or know someone with a printer next door who might be willing to help ...) . You can have your very own regular postman come to collect up to 5 items at no extra charge - letters, parcels or returns - directly from your home. Full details on the Post Office website at https://www.royalmail.com/collection
For Remembrance Day 2020…
Obviously it will be very difficult to hold the usual Remembrance Day services in the Memorial Hall this year. So the Parish Council have taken the decision to record a version of our regular service and make it available online for the morning of Wednesday 11th. We will also be printing some copies of the Order of Service and leaving them pinned on the community noticeboard if anyone would like one to use.
We'd also like anyone who wishes the opportunity to join us in the spirit of the day by adding a ribbon, poppy or small note to the ropewalk now in place around the Millennium Cross. We feel that this, along with everyone taking time to go out onto doorsteps or gateways to take the 2 minutes silence at 11am will allow our parish community time to reflect on the losses suffered not just in war but now, in peace time.
Many thanks - Mawnan Parish Council
Census 2021 -
Households across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, alongside the rest of England and Wales will soon be asked to take part in Census 2021.
The census is a once-in-a-decade survey that gives us the most accurate estimate of all the people and households in England and Wales. It has been carried out every decade since 1801, with the exception of 1941.
It will be the first run predominantly online, with households receiving a letter with a unique access code, allowing them to complete the questionnaire on their computers, phones or tablets.
The Parish of Mawnan includes the Village of Mawnan Smith and the hamlets of Penwarne, Helford Passage, Carlidnack, Bareppa and Durgan. The village of Mawnan Smith is just over 2km from the Coastal Footpath. The Village boasts a selection of shops - a garage (no fuel), Village Store, Electrical store, Hair salon, The Oystercatcher (homestyle shop) and The Red Lion Pub. The old Smithy has been transformed into a craft workshop support local craft.
