Dear Residents & Business Owners
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.
There is a wealth of information currently available to help you through this difficult time and 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.
The Town Council is now operating back to near capacity and there are two areas of particular interest:
Redruth Library and Information Service - is now open and operating a "click and collect" service for books, and a "record and refer" service for enquiries. This service is currently available Monday to Saturday between 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. in our new location in the Civic Centre in Alma Place (former Cornish Studies Library). We are looking at extending this offer from mid-September, but this will be subject to the guidelines issued at the time - we will keep you up to date here about this service.
Council Meetings - all Council meetings are now being held virtually and remotely, but this should not prevent you from participating. If you wish to take part in a meeting you will only be able to talk about anything that is on the relevant agenda, and you will have to contact the Town Council to get details of how to access the meeting using "Teams", before midday on the date of the meeting. Alternatively, you can access the link through the "Additional Documents" part of the meeting. We are also intending to steam our Council Meetings "live" on Facebook and again we will update you on this here. Details of the dates of our meetings are on our Council Meetings page.
Redruth Town Council contact details are as follows:
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.
Please 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.
With My Very Best Wishes
Cllr Deborah Reeve
Redruth Town Mayor
