It has come to the parish council’s attention that someone has decided to use the verge at the playing field as a toilet.
It is bad enough having to pick up dog mess, but not very nice for someone to have to clean up human waste.
The council would like to think that the person doing it is not local, but we would like to issue a reminder to use the public toilets situated close by. Thank you.
The Cornwall Council Public Health, Health Protection Team are emailing out to all the Town and Parish Councils to ask them to help us share some information with the public.
We have two topics to share:
• Stay Hydrated - Click on the link above to view the pdf
• General stop spreading the germs - messages below
We are aware of lots of people coming down with coughs and feeling generally unwell. Help stop the spread of germs by taking simple steps to protect yourself and others:
• Use tissues to trap germs
• Wash your hands often with warm water and soap
• Put used tissues in the bin as quickly as possible
CATCH IT. BIN IT. KILL IT.
If you don't feel well enough to go to work or carry out your normal activities, please try to stay at home and avoid
contact with other people. For more information visit:
It has come to the parish council’s attention that there are ongoing incidents of anti-social behaviour in the village toilets that is unacceptable!
This includes toilet roll paper being strewn everywhere, rubbish being put behind the toilet, damage to the lock and the toilet flush, banging of doors and even faeces on the floor.
Jamie Sachs, who maintains our toilets, does a fantastic job, and he should not have to deal with unnecessary incidents such as these.
Week St Mary Parish Council is keen to keep the toilets open, but we urge people to not abuse the facility, otherwise further action will have to be taken.
Week St. Mary Parish Council recognises that from time to time there will be concerns expressed by members of the public over the activities of the Council or one of its members or employees......
All parish council meetings are advertised as a public meeting and as such could be filmed or recorded by broadcasters, the media or members of the public.
Japanese knotweed is a strong-growing, clump-forming perennial, with tall, dense annual stems. Stem growth is renewed each year from the stout, deeply-penetrating creeping underground stems.
An amendment to the Anti-social Behaviour, Crime and Policing Act 2014 includes Japanese knotweed and other invasive non-native plants.
Hedgehogs are in trouble. Numbers in the UK have fallen from 36 million in the 1950s to less than a million today. It is feared that hedgehogs could become extinct in less than a decade.
The Family Information Service (FIS) is Cornwall’s main signposting service for parents and carers of children aged from 0–20, or 25 if they have additional needs. As well as providing advice over the telephone, we also have a website full of information for families and professionals. So call, email or visit our directory for any family related enquiry and we will try to point you in the right direction.
...therefore, from 1 July 2016, Blue Badge holders, with an adapted vehicle or a registered disable vehicle that qualifies for free tax, are able to register their vehicle to park for free in Cornwall Council car parks.
Living in a village means many of us need a car to access work, shops, college, etc. Parking is, and has been for some time, a problem, particularly at this time of year when a large volume of agricultural equipment is being moved through the village.
The Parish Council are appealing to all car owners who have off-street parking to use this whenever possible.
This will allow those without this facility to use the limited on street parking and ensure that agricultural machinery and lorries can drive through the village without difficulty. Thank you for your co-operation and also thanks to all those who already use their off-street parking.
