Hannafore Sea Wall Walkway

Cornwall’s Highways team have reported that a large void has been found under the concrete surface of the walkway at the back of Hannafore Beach Seawall. Because of public safety concerns, the walkway has been closed.

Highways are investigating the extent of the void(s) – current estimate approximately 2m x 2m x 1.5m.It appears that the backfill material behind the seawall has been washed out by sea/wave action through drainage holes retro-fitted in the wall.

Cornwall have asked us to pass on apologies for any inconvenience this may cause and we all appreciate the impact coming into the holiday season. However, the risk has been deemed severe enough to warrant the immediate closure.

Proposed Accommodation Registration Scheme Pilot in Cornwall

If you run any sort of tourism accommodation – any “head on a bed” from bed and breakfast, holiday cottage, annex, flat, hotel, yurt etc – then its really important you find out about the proposals for a pilot registration scheme in Cornwall.

SECTA – the South East Cornwall Tourism Association – is running a session on Zoom on the 13th July at 7pm to give details of the proposed pilot scheme.

Not a SECTA member? Then this session is aimed at you to show you what we do and what we are about as a tourism association. Membership of SECTA is free so come along to this meeting, ask any questions and find out more.

If you want to be included please email Kim at holidays@wringworthy.co.uk for link details.

covid 19

Covid-19 Update

With COVID cases on the rise, people in Cornwall are again being urged to do all they can to protect themselves and others from the virus.

Local data and the Office for National Statistics (ONS) survey show the number of positive cases is rising swiftly. Currently 2.7% of the population in Cornwall are thought to have the virus. It comes as thousands of people prepare to make the trip down to Cornwall for holidays and festivals.

Residents and visitors alike are being asked to make sure they and their families are fully vaccinated against COVID. Vaccines are still available for anyone from the age of five years and up who has not yet taken up the offer. If you’re eligible for a spring booster, please do try to book this month to ensure there is a six month gap between doses if you have an autumn booster.

People should also remember the basics to keep the virus at bay – wash or sanitise hands regularly, try to meet outdoors if possible, keep indoor spaces well ventilated, wear a mask if you can in busy indoor settings, and don’t mix with people if you’re feeling unwell.

See the Information about Coronavirus page on Cornwall Council’s website for support for residents, including living safely with COVID-19, testing and vaccinations, self-isolation, local COVID-19 data, mental health support, and more.
