Queen's Platinum Jubilee Tree Planting

The Lanreath Gardening Group, in collaboration with the Parish Council, and assisted by members of the 'Ladybirds' pre-school toddler group, will be planting an English oak tree in the grounds of Lanreath Village Hall at 10:30am on Tuesday the 30th November 2021.The tree has been donated by the Forest for Cornwall project team as part of their Landmark Tree initiative. It is being planted in celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee next year and in support of the Queen’s Green Canopy. Any member of Lanreath Community who would like to attend the tree planting would be very welcome (bring a rain coat!). The Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall has expressed an interest in attending tree planting initiatives that form part of the Queen’s celebrations this coming year. He will be represented at the tree planting by his deputy, Group Captain Mike Trace OBE DL.


The tree will be dedicated to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, to commemorate her Platinum Jubilee, at a separate ceremony which will form part of a wider community celebration of the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee during the summer of next year. The exact dates and arrangements for which are still in the planning stage.

COVID Report Lanreath

The Parish Council is elected to serve the local community, and when matters are brought to our attention by members of the parish we are obliged to act.


There has been a rise in COVID cases locally and as a small village with many vulnerable people, the community needs to protect itself, by taking the necessary precautions and obeying the rules. For the latest guidance on self-isolating please see 'When to self isolate and what to do'.


The previous notice on this subject was by no means meant to demonise or stigmatise the majority of those who have contracted COVID and complied, (or are currently complying) with the rules, but to remind the minority that by law, and for the benefit of the local community, anyone testing positive for COVID should self-slate. Not only is it against government guidelines, it is also thoughtless and at worse selfish not to do so. We feel sure it is the former rather than latter, as no one would want to put others at risk .

Devon and Cornwall Alert

Devon and Cornwall Alert Logo

Devon and Cornwall Alert is a two-way community messaging system operated by Devon and Cornwall Police. The system helps us to connect with our communities, it tells people what is happening in their area and allows them to respond directly with any information.

The system is designed to allow people who register to choose the type of information they would like to receive concerning crime and anti-social behaviour, witness appeals, crime prevention, community events etc. Business can also register and will receive messages relevant to their business type and also local area.

Subscribers will not be notified about every crime or incident that happens in their community. Our aim is to send relevant information where we believe to do so will reduce the opportunity for crime and anti-social behaviour or will help Devon and Cornwall Police solve a crime.

To register: or via the Devon and Cornwall police website.

Inclusion Matters Service

This service has been commissioned by Cornwall Council.  Inclusion Matters is a partnership project between Age UK Cornwall, Disability Cornwall, Inclusion Cornwall, Digital Inclusion and Cornwall Rural Community Charity [CRCC], who leads this service.  In addition the project works with Cornwall Health Care Trust [NHS] to support hospital patient discharge across the county.


What the Service Offers:


Inclusion Matters is for the benefit and support of anyone with health and wellbeing needs within your parish district.  This service is in response of the ‘Big Vision 2050’ strategy for Cornwall.  The aim being to facilitate and support the development of localism within our Cornish Communities, with a focus on two of the key priorities a Healthy Cornwall and a Connected Cornwall. In addition, advance the government’s strategy for all adults to have a good foundation of the five essential digital skills.


The service is available to help and support the needs of individuals or community groups who require some extra support, through difficult times they may be facing.  They provide information, advice, guidance, and support community development, either on a one to one or group basis.  They offer a free service through Cornwall Link to connect our communities to each other.  This can be access here:


Hospital Patient Discharge:


Combining and promoting inclusion and empowering independence as part of the ‘Adult Social Care Prevention Offer’.  The hospital discharge service is focussed on alleviating the pressure of patient readmissions upon the NHS.  They accept referrals for any adult patient on Pathway 0, with a focus on isolated or lonely individuals.  They support patients upon and following hospital discharge and up to six weeks thereafter.  This can be through information, advice and guidance, practical help, befriending and a host of other means.  In addition, they have close links with Cornwall Carers Service, Veteran Carers Service, and can make direct referrals or provide, where applicable, for the unpaid Carer/Relative.




They have a bank of volunteers who can where appropriate be matched to clients.  They can help anyone wishing to volunteer to find a placement within their own community.  This could be either with the Inclusion Matters service partners, or with a completely different organisation.




Furthermore, there are a selection of leaflets and contacts, plus resource information gathered through our ongoing asset mapping of our local communities.  This may also be of help to you as you carry out your role.
