Affordable Housing Development, Telegraph Hill

No one can have failed to notice the work which has been going on for the last 12 months or so on Telegraph Hill – I’m sure most of us will at least have been held up by temporary traffic lights at some time or other! Well, happily the work is now nearing completion and the new houses are almost ready to be occupied by the families and individuals who have shown a close connection with St Day and have been allocated a property. Work is also continuing behind the scenes towards the Parish Council’s plan to have a new doctors’ surgery built on the remaining plot of ground where the builders’ cabins are at the moment. The builders have negotiated the right to use that plot of land until the end of 2018 but, if everything goes according to plan, work on the surgery will start after that.
In the short term the new occupants will be moving in on 31 July and Coastline Housing has organised an opening ceremony for 2pm on that day. Everyone is welcome!!

Charity Bike Ride

Charity Bike Ride
Lawrence Dalby, who lives at Forth- an-Eglos in St Day, will be doing a 300 mile charity bike ride from London to Paris in September in aid of the Royal Cornwall Hospitals’ Charity. He aims to start from London on September 9th and park his bike outside the Eiffel Tower in Paris on September 12th (the day of his 50th birthday).
This is a tremendous task to undertake and Lawrence is doing it all to show his gratitude for the way in which the staff at Treliske Hospital cared for his mother during the last few hours of her life two years ago. All money raised will go to benefit the hospital and its staff.
It would be great if St Day could get behind Lawrence and help him to raise as much money as possible so, if you wish to support him and make a donation – no matter how small it will be greatly appreciated – please click on the link below and follow the instructions on his Virgin Money Charity Cycling page.

Parking!

We all know that parking in St Day can be a real pain at times but getting stroppy with other residents isn’t the way to solve the problem!!
Apparently some people who are unable to park outside their own houses – maybe someone else is already parked there or there are double yellow lines – have suffered abuse when they have parked their cars elsewhere, but legally, in St Day.
We live in a village with very few off-street parking spaces and yet most householders own cars, often more than one. This means that we have to park carefully and be considerate with others, especially those who are unable to park outside their own properties. Getting into a slanging match with someone who has legally parked outside your house is not the answer and could land you in trouble with the police!
Just think, that person who has parked outside your house probably doesn’t want to be there and would much rather be parked outside their own house. They have probably also spent the last 15 minutes trying to find a parking space after a hard day’s work. Please be kind!!
