Dear Lansdowne neighbours,
We will be opening the park on Friday the 10th of July and I know that many of you will be worried about this during the pandemic. We do understand, and we wanted to reassure you that we have taken many precautions so that we open as safely as possible, not just for ourselves and our customers but for the surrounding area too.
Alongside our enhanced cleaning protocols and changes to our shop and reception we have reduced our pitch capacity and have turned away a number of larger bookings that could make social distancing more difficult. All customers have had lengthy communications about being COVID aware whilst here, and like everywhere, we have a lot of signs around the place now too.
Finally, thank you for the many kind words of encouragement you have given us over the last few difficult months, it has meant such a lot to us.

As restrictions are being lifted from what we are able to do in the wake of the lock down requirements of the Covid 19 pandemic, you may be looking for help around your home or in the garden. Age UK has a vetted service to help find contractors to help : https://www.ageuk.org.uk/cornwall/our-services/gardening-services/
Whilst the weather is improving and summer is upon us, the need for heating homes is dwindling. However remaining ever vigilant against fire and other risks is very important. Organising boiler checks and other routine maintenance may had slipped or you are self isolating . In absence of these inspections please ensure your undertake your routine alarm checks. If any alarms are found faulty we have made spare alarms available (Carbon monoxide – £15 and combined Smoke and Carbon Monoxide £20). If you need a spare please contact Chris Holmes – 07483220448 by text, phone or email as normal. Please do not pay by cash, but by cheque to Lansdowne Park or by BACS. Chris can then drop any items them to your doorstep.
Yes it would be wonderful to think we could all return to normality and lead our lives as we did before the Covid 19 Pandemic started. But gradually we are are being advised in accordance with government guidelines that we should follow the following rules. Many of the residents on the park may be classified as vulnerable and need shielding. We must ALL be aware of this fact. Visitors, friends and family must respect precautions in place and act accordingly.
Advice for reducing risk of infection
The best advice and action for reducing the risk of infection and the spread of the virus remains the same:
Maintain social distancing of at least two metres as much as possible
Wash your hands frequently for at least 20 seconds with soap and hot water
and avoid touching your face
If you cough or sneeze, catch it, bin it, kill it. If you don’t have a tissue, cough or sneeze into your elbow – and then wash your hands
Protect the clinically vulnerable and shielding members of the community by staying away
At the first sign of illness, request a test at www.nhs.uk/coronavirus.
Cornwall Council have advice on line at: https://www.cornwall.gov.uk/health-and-social-care/public-health-cornwall/information-about-coronavirus-covid-19/
In todays strange situation social distancing is a requirement. However under these conditions it would be somewhat a challenge to administer CPR. For this reason a pack will be provided from May 11th in the AED cabinet with basic mask, gloves , hand sanitiser and a cotton cloth to place over any victim’s mouth and face. NO MOUTH TO MOUTH RESUSCITATION SHOULD BE ATTEMPTED. I attach the instruction sheet which will be posted on the notice board and well as to be included on the pack. In the first instance 999 should be called in any event.
These are unsettling times and COVID 19 is clearly impacting on all our lives, fellow residents and loved ones. I wanted to wish all of you who are helping to support one another on the park all the best and thank you for your efforts. To get through this difficult time please be as considerate as possible and whilst not putting oneself at risk help where you can but respect social distancing and government directives.
Please take care and try and remain positive. It is challenging for park management to operate under these conditions and therefore we have asked that you contact us by email, text and telephone if you have a query. Chris will deal with general maintenance (as normal) to ensure that Lansdowne Park premises are maintained. The office is not open but you have our address at Weston super Mare and also email which is probably the best form of written communication. I am confident that we will get through this together and do feel free to telephone Kelvin as park manager if you have any problems- 077886661349. Cornwall Council can help with volunteers on 01872 266988. You can also ring 01872 266383 . If you have any problems paying bills, utility or council tax queries make contact with them to arrange how to cope as these organisations all have support teams in place to assist.
We all find ourselves in difficult circumstances. The government has written to us all explaining what we should, and shouldn’t be doing. There have be cases of family visitors to the park. On the frequently asked questions (FAQs) published on the government web site there are clear instructions: Family members should not be visiting relatives other than to drop on shopping and medication. The guidelines specifically state that you should not go inside the homes of anyone you do not live with with, especially vulnerable people. Keeping the 6 feet distance from them is important and to avoid all contact. Support via telephone and other media should be considered rather than in homes. STAY AT HOME AND SAVE LIVES.

From time to time there are reports of door-to-door salespeople cold-calling homeowners on residential parks attempting to sell (sometimes unnecessary) items/services at unreasonably high prices. Some, mainly elderly, homeowners have bought something which they later discover is unnecessary and overpriced.
Homeowners should be vigilant. A ‘no cold-callers sign’ is attached to this email which can be printed out and given to homeowners to place on their front doors to deter cold-callers. nocoldcallers
Hoping this is of assistance. Susan Yorkas
