Dear Residents & Business Owners
There is a wealth of information currently available to help you through this difficult time. If you need help or advice, whether as a business or individual, can we suggest that you look on the Cornwall Council website in the first instance. If your query is particularly about businesses in Redruth, whether they are open, or the guidelines they should be following then visit the Reopening Redruth website.
As your Town Council we have been providing support and help to our community during what has been a worrying and extremely difficult time. We have been working in partnership with other local organisations such as Cornwall Council, Redruth Revival CIC, Redruth & District Chamber of Commerce, Redruth School, Volunteer Cornwall, and local churches to deliver a joint response. Now that some of the restrictions have been eased, we will not stop in our efforts to continue to assist wherever possible.
The Town Council has had to take action to restrict access to the building in line with government advice. There are two areas which are particularly affected:
Redruth Library and Information Service - has now re-opened fully and providing all the services prior to lockdown as well as our Information Service and access to public network computers. This service is now available Monday to Friday between 9:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. and Saturday between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. in our new location in the Civic Centre in Alma Place (former Cornish Studies Library). Whilst the guidelines have now been relaxed, we encourage you all to think of our staff and wear a mask during your visit if you are able and maintain a safe distance between yourself an other users - we certainly do not wish to have to shut the facility due to staff shortages!
Council Meetings - all Council meetings are now being held at Redruth Civic Centre. If you wish to take part in a meeting you will only be able to talk about anything that is on the relevant agenda. Please contact the Town Council prior to the meeting if you wish to attend. Social distancing measures are in place and face coverings are required to be worn, unless you are exempt.
Details of the dates of our meetings can be found on the Council Meetings page.
Please continue to do everything you can to help those around you. We live in an amazing community and we want to thank you all for your continued support.
Do not hesitate to contact us as we continue to keep you up to date with the latest Government advice as it becomes available. Please adhere to whatever guidance is provided, and ensure you comply with requests to self-isolate and practice social distancing.
The town also has a Facebook page, Twitter, and Instagram accounts which give up to date news on events and news in the town.
