Work on Road Surfacing

Thank you for the cooperation of all the residents thus far. We hope that the work will be completed shortly and that the benefit of the new surface appreciated. The top car park remains available for parking. Please can all residents and their guests be careful and avoid any works in progress. Once the new surface is in place it is best to avoid scuffing the surface. PLease drive carefully and larger and heavier vehicles should be avoided. For any questions please contact Kelvin 0n 07788661349.

Keeping Safe in Cornwall through lock down

 

Keeping Cornwall safe through lockdown



The new restrictions in are being put in place to help control the spread of the virus. Cases of COVID are currently lower in Cornwall than in other parts of the country, but we all need to stay vigilant to protect our loved ones and the NHS.

As with the early part of 2020 we can only keep our communities safe by working together. It is a difficult time and many people will be struggling, so look out for each other.

Changes to shielding

Unlike in the spring those considered to be especially vulnerable to coronavirus are not being asked by the government to shield this time around. You can find more information here.

The Government is set to write to all those who previously shielded this week to offer the latest advice. 
 
We are working with our partners in the voluntary sector to support our most vulnerable residents in accessing food and essential supplies. Supermarkets are continuing to provide priority delivery slots to vulnerable individuals. If you need help getting online, for example to register for an online supermarket account, please contact Volunteer Cornwall.  

There’s an information page on Cornwall Council’s website specifically for clinically vulnerable residents who are in the shielded group.

Anyone who needs help can request a volunteer by ringing Volunteer Cornwall on 01872 266988 or emailing requestforhelp@volunteercornwall.org.uk.

Could you volunteer for Cornwall?

Could you help and support communities and people across Cornwall? 

Earlier in the year many of you stepped up to the plate to help those who needed support, we hope that many of you will do the same again as we work through a second lockdown.
 
Community volunteers can register with Volunteer Cornwall on their website or by emailing mid@volunteercornwall.org.uk. Volunteer Cornwall will match people who ring up needing help with the community volunteers in their local area – or, if they have more complex needs, with specialist services.

Resurfacing of some parts on Lansdowne Park from Monday 16th November

As part of ongoing maintenance and essential works Lansdowne Park will be seeking to resurface parts of the park next week. We are in the hands of contractors, the weather and ongoing Covid19 requirements. I suggest that anyone who needs to leave the park to park in the visitors’ carpark the evening prior and allow a little extra time. For further information please call Kelvin 07788661349 or Chris to obtain up to date information. Once the surface has been laid, please can everyone take care and drive more slowly and carefully for the following week to allow the surface to settle down.

Many thanks for your cooperation.  Susan Yorkas

 

Delivery of new home Tuesday 10th Nov 2020

We are expecting the delivery of a new home on Tuesday morning and suggest that should anyone need to leave the site from the area of 53 Lansdowne Park that they park in the visitors car park the evening before or first thing in the morning. Hopefully there will not be long delays but just to be on the safe side. Please look out for further information on the web here to see any further updates.

Disruption to Water Supply to Park – S W Water essential works likely Wednesday morning 14th October-

S W Water have identified a faulty valve in the supply of water to Lansdowne Park. Essential works will need to undertaken by them to rectify this problem. We now believe this will be on 14th Oct but we cannot guarantee that we will be given any exact details. If we do receive specific notice we will of course immediately inform all residents accordingly. But our ability to do so will be limited accordingly. If you have any questions please call Kelvin on 07788661349.

Resurgence of Corona Virus- what WE can all do to help- WE are in this together.

It has been evident over the last few weeks that there has been an increase of Covid 19 cases  nationally as well as locally. For this reason please be reminded of what we can all do to help:

There are three simple actions we must all do to keep on protecting each other

  • Wash hands – keep washing your hands regularly
  • Cover face – wear a face covering in enclosed spaces
  • Make space – stay at least 2 metres apart – or 1 metre with a face covering or other precautions

If you are required to self isolate you should not leave your home other than in very exceptional circumstances. If you are feeling unwell, get a test and do not leave home for at least 10 days. Call 119 for guidance of  what to do and how to get a test and do not visit  your GP or hospital unless specifically told to do so.

For further information go to the site at Cornwall Council Stick With Us

On Lansdowne Park there are neighbours who would help with shopping and collecting items from the pharmacy I am sure. Maybe chat with one another to ask who would be prepared to undertake some simple errands if your circumstances meant that you needed to self-isolate. Home deliveries are available, so make a plan and maybe have a few reserve  essential items at home (but do not panic buy). Please ensure that any items are dropped outside where possible and minimise indoor contact with one another at the moment.

Resurfacing on Lansdowne Park- possible disruption 16th November 2020.

Lansdowne Park has a programme of improvements on the park. We have arranged  to resurface  sections  of the road  on Lansdowne.   A provisional date is available  in  November 2020 to start these  works.  We are unable to confirm the details until nearer the time  in todays climate of Covid19.   As usual we will notify those likely to be  affected. However  it would be greatly appreciated if everyone with email addresses provide them. As a result we can  communicate messages with residents. As a matter of routine it is helpful if you do change telephone numbers and email addresses that these are notified to the office.  If you have any queries nearer the time please speak to Kelvin on 07788661349 as he will be liaising with the contractors.

Water Supply Disruption Wednesday 16 Sept 2020

Essential Work is being undertaken on the water supply and it may need to be disconnected for a short period estimated between 11-1 pm on Wednesday 16th September. Please call Kelvin 07788661349  for further details. Please fill you kettles and have a spare jug of water. Ensure you do not use appliances which need a water supply.

Thank you for your cooperation. Susan Yorkas

 

 

 

Thursday Sept 10th- Possible vehicular disruption on Lansdowne.

A new park home is expected to be delivered on Thursday am to be sited at plot 35. WE hope that this will not interfere with traffic on the site but I suggest that any residents who  have urgent appointments on that morning that  a little extra time is allowed especially for residents along Prase Coth. Kelvin will be on site if you need to speak with him- tel 07788661349, or for any updates.

 

 

Please Engage with NHS track and trace.

The national initiative to try and  control  the spread of Covid 19 includes the NHS track and trace system. If you suspect you may have caught the virus or receive a call  from an NHS contact tracer (it will be an 0300 number), please follow instructions. For details see NHS track  and Trace.119  is the number to call for a test, or book on line by following the link above

Who can get a test

You can get a test:

  • for yourself, if you have coronavirus symptoms now (a high temperature, a new, continuous cough, or a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste)
  • for someone you live with, if they have symptoms
  • if you live in England and have been told to have a test before you go into hospital, for example, for surgery
  • if your local council asks you to get a test

You will never be asked to pay and so be aware that there are scams suggesting you need a test but must pay. This is not the case.
