Welcome to the  Probus Parish Council website.
 

This is the official Website of Probus Parish Council which has been designed and constructed to provide what we hope will be a valuable resource of information to all residents of the village.

A vehicle to find out more about what is happening within the Council and the wider Probus community.      
We wish for the site to be proactive as possible and to be a two way channel of advice assistance and information between its residents and the Parish Council.  

The Parish Council currently has a Casual Vacancy to apply please contact the Clerk.

Play Area closed until further notice due to the Coronavirus.

  

 

 If you know of any local residents who need support, or if there are any local issues related to the COVID-19 response, please let the Parish Council know. We will forward the information through to the Community Link Officer, who will be best placed to organise a response from the relevant team at Cornwall Council and associated partner organisations.

To pass information on, please contact:

Parish Clerk Amanda Kendall – 01726 883614 or probuspc@gmail.com

COVID-19 UPDATE – posted -5th June 2020

Further guidance & instructions on the Coronavirus (Covid-19) were published by the Govt on 4th June with further updates today 5th

The main changes relate to being able to “spend time outdoors”. This must be restricted to groups of six people and they must adhere to social distancing (2 metres apart)

The new measures have resulted in us making two changes to the arrangements that were in place.

The mixed use games area (MUGA) is now open as a sports court – the guidance makes it plain that it should only be used by a maximum of 6 people whilst practising social distancing.

The Parish Cemetery is now accessible with “social distancing”

The latest instructions make it clear that PLAY AREAS ARE TO REMAIN CLOSED.

Where a Council operates a separate – single purpose – skate park this may be open (with the restriction of 6 people practising social distancing).

THEREFORE THE PLAY AREA AND SKATE RAMP IN PROBUS REMAIN CLOSED

The use of (or fly tipping in) either facility will be reported to the police.

In the meantime there is no change to the following:

The village hall remains available for use 2x per week by the post office service and for blood donor sessions.

The public toilets remain open and serviced daily.

The playing field (which is not­ a dog walking area) remains open, and “social distancing” continue to apply.
