Coverack is cautiously unlocking ready to welcome visitors back, the hospitality industry fully opened on Saturday 4th July. Coverack businesses are reopening but with adjustments and changes. Coverack is lucky to have so many loyal and returning visitors and we expect to see many more who are exploring and finding quieter areas; we would please ask everyone, whether they live in or are visiting Coverack, to be considerate and patient, safety for everyone is the top priority.
When visiting Coverack: please respect social distancing. There will probably be an increased amount of rubbish, maybe more than the bins can cope with, so please take your rubbish home and dispose of it carefully. Both blocks of the Parish Council owned public toilets in Coverack are open. Coverack beach remains dog friendly but please respect the Parish Council restrictions of dogs on a lead between 9am – 6pm. Please control your dog at all times and clear up after them.
The number of people in a shop or business are restricted so you may need to queue but please do support these independent businesses so that they will financially be able to survive this difficult period and be here in the future. Money spent in a small business makes a big difference to that business and has many knock on effects in the wider community. Please keep it local.
Coverack Church is now open for private prayer on a Sunday and Thursday between 10:00 – 16:00.
Coverack Harbour: Coverack harbour is privately owned and as such the general public are lucky to be able to use it. Please observe the signs and remember that it is a working space for the fishermen.
The Village Halls are currently closed with the exception of St Peter’s Hall on a Monday & Thursday afternoon for Post Office services. The play area outside the Lambeage Hall on the Battery will be reopened when it is considered safe to do so, please observe the signs.
Unusually for Coverack, things will not be the same as they always have been! Please bear with us as we try to make Coverack a positive and safe place for everyone and play your part by being considerate and polite to those around you. General advice for Cornwall is to observe social distancing, please avoid busy and congested areas and if you want to visit an attraction or eat out, please plan in advance and book. Please take all rubbish home with you.
We hope to safely welcome people back to Coverack, we appreciate that for many people it hasn’t worked out to visit this year and we look forward to welcoming you in the future.
