Coverack Christmas Lights Progress

Good progress is being made getting the Coverack Christmas lights ready. Most of the big features are now in place and the strings of lights have been hoisted on their poles from North Corner to the Harbour.

Thanks are due to the team of helpers who plan to finish the work on Saturday 21st November.

Coverack Bonfire Night

A huge thank you to all those who helped - Coverack Bonfire Night is such a team effort and all the help is very much appreciated.

We needed to raise almost £2000 to cover the cost of the fireworks and the insurance. Having had a quick count up we raised around £1,100 this evening (not including the BBQ). Combined with the business donations we are heading towards that total, and with a few more donations to come in it looks like we will have covered our costs once again…so we can do it all again next year!

They will display their work at the Lifeboat Art Studio, near The Ship Inn, where they had a successful Easter exhibition earlier this year.

As well as paintings and prints, members will have greetings cards and Christmas cards on sale.

Original artwork makes great Christmas presents, so this event could be a good time to get started on the Christmas shopping.

Coverack Black Hole May Be Filled

About twenty people attended a public meeting held in the Lambeage Hall on the evening of 16th September. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss a proposal to site two poles on land near North Corner. The proposed six metre poles would allow the police, coastguards, fire service, and lifeboats to have efficient communications when working in Coverack village.

St Keverne Parish Council

New sites for "Travellers"

The Parish Council supported plans to build a site for Coverack's resident "travellers". The proposal is for a new site on Goonhilly Downs with an area of hard standing for three caravans, and a septic tank. It is down a short track almost opposite to Croft Pascoe Pool.

Parish Councillors also backed a plan by Michael Tylor to build twelve houses on the edge of Coverack, four of which will be affordable.
