Dog fouling on Park

Understandably everyone has, in the recent unpleasant cold spell combined with  lockdown rules, found some aspects of life very tiresome. Evidence of dog fouling  on the park is to be seen and which is not only unsightly and unpleasant  but also poses  a health threat. On the grassed areas which are mown debris can be  thrown up, machinery blades need to be cleaned and maintained are therefore handled so please spare a thought for the staff on the park. Dogs should be kept on a lead on the park without exception, and never allowed out to relieve themselves unattended. Owners should without fail, clean up after their pets. If any park resident wishes to make a complaint and has evidence of any culprits, please speak to Chris Holmes on the park.

Cold Icy weather ahead!

This week the ‘Beast from the East’ may arrive and temperatures will plummet bringing icy conditions. Please take care as trips and falls leading to hospital visits are to be avoided in the current Covid pandemic. Wrap up warm at home, keep the heating at at least 18 degrees, enjoy hot drinks and follow medical advice from the NHS; Keep Safe!

 

Disruption to Power Supply January 7th 2021

I have received notification from WPD of works that will be undertaken on January 7th 2021  to the power supply to the area including Lansdowne Cottage. It was unclear if the supply to Lansdowne Park would be disrupted but please note that if there is a break in power then it is for this reason. For further information call WPD 01209 616630 during normal working hours.

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.
