St Mewan Parish Council are working with an amazing bank of volunteers centred around the villages of Trewoon, Polgooth and Sticker who are continuing to support the elderly or vulnerable residents. We are also a ‘distribution hub’ for Volunteer Cornwall who work very closely with Cornwall Council to put in place a network of volunteers to support vulnerable people. If you are fit and healthy and would like to be added to the list of our formal local volunteers for St Mewan Parish please email your name, address and phone number to clerk@stmewanparishcouncil.gov.uk. All the volunteers will be considered ‘key workers’ as they will be providing essential care and support in their local community, delivering food, shopping or medication. In addition, if you are particularly concerned about someone who has particular needs, please let the Parish Council know. We have direct links to Cornwall Council’s local Community Link Officer, Volunteer Cornwall and other support organisations who will be best placed to organise a response. Thank you for being part of such a great community. Wendy Yelland - Clerk to St Mewan Parish Council. Read More...
