Devon and Cornwall Alert

Devon and Cornwall Alert is a free messaging system to inform members of the public about crimes and incidents affecting their local area. It works by sending recorded messages by telephone, email or text messages to individuals or groups and businesses.

Basically it is a two-way messaging system which helps the police to connect with local communities; it tells people what is happening in their area and allows them to respond directly with any information and the system is designed to allow people to choose the type of information they would like to receive concerning crime and anti-social behaviour, witness appeals, crime prevention, community events and even local good news. This means that subscribers will not be notified about every crime or incident that happens in their community as the aim is to send relevant information where the police believe to do so will reduce the opportunity for crime and anti-social behaviour or help them to solve a crime.

Anyone interested in signing up for Devon and Cornwall Alert should go to alerts.dc.police.uk or you can fill in a form on the Devon and Cornwall police website under the services section.

Parking around St Day and Carharrack Community School

Many of you will have noticed that new road markings and signs have recently been installed on School Hill and these mean that there will now be a Traffic Regulation Order on this area and anyone ignoring these signs will be liable to be fined under that order. If you use this area at all to collect children from school please read the following letter from Gill Willsher, Headteacher at St Day and Carharrack Community School, which has the full support of the local police, St Day Parish Council and Cornwall Cllr Mark Kaczmarek.

Dear Parents,

Road Safety

I am seeking your support to keep our children safe as they come to and from school.

During the Summer the road markings on School Hill and Church Hill were re-painted, along with the installation of upright signs stating no stopping or parking is permitted. By ignoring this a Traffic Regulation Order will place you at risk of a fine.

Many of you already choose to park away from school and walk your child/ren to school, thereby lowering the volume of traffic on School Hill. Thank you.

I fully understand that some children and adults need to park close to school due to physical needs, making use of the disabled bays for parking. Despite this I am concerned that the children are at risk by walking in the road and from cars being driven at speed in the road. We have a collective responsibility to keep the children safe.

We are being supported by the local police team and Parish Council. Of course we have a responsibility in school as well. Members of staff and visitors display parking permits utilising the marked bays for parking, when these are full they park away from school, leaving the road clear and safe for children.

I need your help to keep the children safe by walking on the pavement and only if it is necessary to drive along the road to school then please do so at a slow, safe speed.

Thank you for your support in keeping the children safe.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to come and see me or contact me by email head@st-day.cornwall.sch.uk

Yours sincerely,

Gill Willsher

Headteacher

St Day Neighbourhood Development Plan

A very successful follow up meeting was held in the Community Centre on Monday 04 September with 20 people present. Some very important steps were taken and it now seems very likely that there is sufficient enthusiasm within the parish to go ahead and start the process of developing an NDP …. but …. there will always be room for more willing volunteers so please contact the Parish Clerk or any of your Parish Councillors if you want to get involved. We would particularly like to hear from people who live in Scorrier, Busveal, Ninnis and other parts of the parish which are out of the centre of St Day.

The next important steps will be to register our intentions with Cornwall Council and apply for the funding which is available and also to develop an initial, short, questionnaire which we would like everyone, young and old, in St Day Parish (including a large part of Scorrier and all of Busveal) to complete. Someone will be knocking on your door very soon with the questionnaire as your answers are needed so that the volunteers can find out exactly what you think the plan should cover and how you would like to see the Parish of St Day develop over the next 15 years. Your ideas and opinions will decide what the plan covers.

Please keep checking on this website, in the quarterly parish newsletter and on notice boards for future updates on our progress.

Affordable Housing Development, Telegraph Hill

Due to the poor recent weather the official opening of the new development has been postponed as the road surface is not quite finished. Hopefully the new residents will still be moving in on Monday 31 July but the opening is now likely to take place in September.
