There seems to be more confidence about
now that we have left the frustrations of 2019 behind us. There is a new
Government in Westminster and the Brexit is now under way, which means that
change will be with us for the next few years and we all want it to be for the
better after the stagnation of the past few years.
There is an old saying “you make your
own luck”, so we recommend that in 2020 you test it by getting involved in
community matters. Most people that do
find that they get a nice feeling from knowing that they are helping others to
enjoy life, even if it is something very simple that they have helped with.
Also you usually find that the “Good Samaritans” of this world are very happy
Here in the Crowan Parish it was
delightful to see how so many people supported their communities with the
splendid Christmas light displays, all of which helped to compensate for the
rather wet weather that we have been experiencing this winter. Our thanks goes to all those volunteers that
worked so hard to make them happen. Without their efforts in raise money, make
and install them our festive season would have been much duller.
This is truly a fine example of
community action, where local groups get together to make a difference. They
want to help make their localities be brighter and show that they care about
them, and such actions provide a lifting of general goodwill which helps us all.
So during 2020 it will be great to see
other community led activities be supported not just on the day of the event,
but by getting together in helping with the organisation and work to make
events happen. Most people find that through working with others on a common
cause helps them discover more about themselves as they rise to the challenges
and make new friends. It is usually a true win-win scenario that improves their
happiness and quality of life for others and themselves.
The Parish Council is keen to learn from
the communities throughout the Parish where they feel that we can help and
particularly if there is a project where some guidance may make a difference.
Also we are aware that there are a
number of people that really put a lot of effort into helping make life better
for others, so during 2020 we are introducing an award for a community
As your Parish Council we want to help
you to be proud of your living in such a lovely part of Cornwall, and as a
result of your support last year the Crowan Parish Neighbourhood Development
Plan was adopted by Cornwall Council. This has already made a difference as
Planning Applications now have to conform with the policies that we developed
to protect our parish, and has led to the stopping of certain developments that would have
otherwise be passed by the Cornwall County Planners.
During 2019 it was realised that
although Nancegollan and Leedstown had defibrillators near the centres of the
villages Townshend and Leedstown, so we have now been to establish these
facilities in the old telephone kiosks. This has also included moving the
defibrillator at Leedstown to the kiosk next to the Old Post Office where it is
now in a more environmentally secure cabinet.
To make this work with confidence it has
meant that we have arranged First Aid training for people local to the units
and Councillors with the assistance of Ian Tessier from Nancegollan. As a
result we are keen to arrange training for others who are interested in what to
do in an emergency together with when and how to use a defibrillator.
You can contact us to get further
information about any of the above and get further Council information is
various ways including:-
Meetings – The Council meets on the second Thursday of each month, except
August, at the Parish Room by the church in Crowan village, when you are welcome

including details of meetings, councillors, planning, etc. (It is expected to revise the content etc

Wishing you the best for
