The South West Climate Change Centre is a free interactive exhibition that opened in October 2021 at the Heartlands Cornwall visitor attraction and World Heritage Site, near Redruth in Cornwall.
The Climate Change Centre spans two rooms and is open to all with no admission charge, from 9.30am to 4.30pm every weekday, except bank holidays. It's an ideal place for a day out with the kids.
Heartlands Cornwall is a 19-acre Cornish Mining World Heritage Site and is a family friendly visitor attraction that embodies Cornish culture. Its open all-year round with all-weather entertainment venue for anyone and every can learn, explore, play and relax.
There is a mining museum and exhibition, diaspora gardens, a giant adventure playscape for kids, and everything is completely FREE to enjoy. Additionally, there is a large contemporary cafe, shop and indoor play area.
The interactive exhibition shows the steps we can take as individuals, communities and businesses to slow the rate of climate change, and adapt to its impacts, particularly flooding.
Cornwall Council are encouraging residents to get behind local and national efforts to provide much-needed support for the people of Ukraine – in particular those who have fled the country and are seeking refuge in neighbouring countries. For a link to some of the organisations involved in raising funds to support the emergency response please click on the button below.
Lanreath Parish Council are reviewing how best to co-ordinate and assist those in the Parish that are considering providing accommodation for Ukrainian refugees as a sponsor under the Government's recently announced 'Homes for Ukraine Scheme'. As a starting point it would be useful to know if there are any Ukrainian or Russian language speakers in the Parish. If you are able to speak either Ukrainian or Russian and you would be prepared to put your skills to good use in support of any refugees that may be sponsored in the Parish we would be very pleased to hear from you via the 'contact us' facility on this website.
The aim of the project is to help people living in Southeast Cornwall into employment or training, but the project's approach is tailored to each individual and their needs. All the support the project offers is bespoke and completely FREE. It can help with anything from building confidence, support finding childcare providers, explaining the benefits system, visiting employers, and much more.
If you are over 18 and unemployed or inactive, and want to unlock your potential by learning how to problem solve, increase your confidence and self-esteem, learn the personal, social and technical skills for life, and discover how to adapt to new challenges, just pick up the phone or email us.

The first of a series of low fare initiatives to make
bus travel cheaper, easier and more attractive to new passengers is underway.
Working together under the Transport for Cornwall partnership, bus companies Cornwall by Kernow, Go Cornwall Bus, Stagecoach, Hopleys, OTS and Travel Cornwall have introduced measures to encourage more people to jump aboard:
The Together for Cornwall partnership paves the way for Cornwall Council’s forthcoming reduced bus fares pilot scheme, expected to begin this spring. The scheme will significantly reduce the cost of bus travel to encourage people to swap their cars for public transport and cut Cornwall’s carbon emissions. The Council has also submitted a Bus Service Improvement Plan to the Government and a bid for £77m in funding to make Cornwall’s public transport easier to use, more reliable, affordable and greener.

Prosperous Cornwall 2050 is a plan that is being prepared by Cornwall Council to guide what needs to be done to
create a more prosperous future for Cornwall. It will be a vision of what needs to happen, and where it needs to happen, helping to plan for the next few decades and helping to give everyone in
Cornwall more opportunity.
The themes of climate change, health and wellbeing, and stronger community will run through this work. It will bring together new and updated strategies and delivery plans from across the Council – including the Housing Strategy, the Local Transport Plan, the Local Skills Strategy and a Spatial Strategy. It will also help to meet the needs of communities in Cornwall and deliver the Council’s priorities while preparing for the next Local Plan.

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: https://alerts.dc.police.uk/ or via the Devon and Cornwall police website.
Time to get walking again!
At this time of year we start to think about the mud drying up and getting out to walk in the beautiful English Countryside again, but where to find new and interesting walks?
The Walking in Cornwall website has hundreds of walks to download and print, free, it also has books of walks, details of all the walking groups in the county and much more. Whether you want to walk on your own or with a group all the information is there in one place.
John Harris (the custodian of the website) said ‘There is so much walking information on the web but it is difficult to find. Walking in Cornwall (part of the Walking in England website – one for each county in England) has brought it together in one place so whether you are walking from home, or away on holiday, you will be able to find a walk suitable for you’.
With walks from half a mile to twelve miles plus long, and a note of suitability for pushchairs and wheelchairs, everyone can find a walk to enjoy.
So home or away, check out the websites and get walking!
