Following a review by Tintagel Carnival committee, it is with much regret and sadness that we announce that the 2020 Carnival Week and Parade will NOT be taking place. We have been closely monitoring the Coronavirus situation over the past few weeks and have explored all options, however, it is becoming increasingly evident that it would be both irresponsible and unfeasible to continue with Carnival this year during these uncertain and challenging times. The decision has not been taken lightly however the safety and wellbeing of our community, visitors and Carnival participants is always our primary concern. We are also very conscious of the impact that the event would have on the NHS, emergency services and local authority who are doing an amazing job and we do not want to unnecessarily stretch their resources any further. Whilst this is a sad & disappointing decision, and we can assure you that the Tintagel Carnival Committee are equally as sad and disappointed, this is the right thing to do! Keep safe everyone, look after yourselves and see you for Tintagel Carnival 2021 (Next carnival dates will be 31st July – 7th Aug 2021 ‘Carnival Day Sat 7th Aug). Kind regards Phil Aston, Chairman, Tintagel Carnival Committee

Removal of Recycling Banks from Tintagel
Tintagel Parish Council has been advised by the Waste Management Team at Cornwall Council that the recycling banks, situated at the Bossiney Road Car Park, are to be removed, in the near future.
These facilities are not being replaced
The following statement has been made by Cornwall Council Waste Management Team:
‘We are currently working on the programme to remove the recycling banks from various sites and will be in touch again, nearer the time of the planned removal. We will ensure you are aware of the date of removal and any actions that we will be taken around this period of time.
The new Waste Contract that commences in October 2020 will see the cessation of this service and therefore there are no discussions being undertaken to reimburse Council Tax payers for removal of this service. ‘
Cornwall Council, through its service provider Cormac is embarking on a programme of works to help maintain essential community infrastructure – such as parks, amenity areas, rights of way and the coast path. These all benefit people’s daily exercise regimes and help their social well-being.
Cormac will ensure the teams maintain social distancing. We are asking residents in the affected areas to observe any diversions or security fencing that they see and respect the teams during these works.
Yesterday, grass cutting works were carried out in and around Penzance, Redruth, Falmouth, Penryn, Portreath, North Country, Torpoint, Bodmin, Saltash, Newquay and St Columb Minor. Works were carried out on the coast path (cutting back of vegetation) in the following areas: Porth and Mawgan Porth; and Perranuthnoe and Prussia Cove. Watering was carried out in Redruth, Falmouth, Penzance, Pool and St Austell areas.
Today, teams are due to carry out grass cutting in and around Penzance, Camborne, Four Lanes, Scorrier, Falmouth, Torpoint, Saltash, Porth and St Columb Minor areas: plus coast path works in Perranuthnoe, Trebarwith and Tintagel areas; and watering in the Redruth, Falmouth, Penzance and Pool areas. Planned works are subject to operational issues and pressures.

With many people furloughed and self-isolating, we feel it’s more important than ever to raise awareness about free education courses and training. Home learning will help people make the most of their time and cope better with self-isolation. It will also improve their employment prospects at a time when many jobs are a risk.
