Community Events:

Coverack’s Carnival and Regatta Committee: It is regretted but we cannot make definite plans when things are so uncertain and so this year both Coverack Carnival and Regatta will be cancelled. Thank you for all support in the past and hoping everyone is keeping safe and well. Wishing everyone all the best from sunny Coverack.

Coverack Space 2000 Community Group: Alongside running this website and Coverack Village Cornwall Facebook page, CS2000 usually run a busy programme of events throughout the year. These events are being cancelled on a month by month but hopefully some people will take part in Pirate & Mermaid Week: from Monday 27th July – until Sunday 2nd August, decorated businesses and homes – please join in if you can, decorating your home, holiday cottage or business in Coverack with a Pirate or Mermaid theme. Please note, this year decorations will need to be where the public can’t touch them to avoid cross contamination. Coverack Village Stores has kindly offered that children can create Pirate & Mermaid pictures to be displayed in the shop window for that week. If you have any clean old socks or gloves, rather than throw them away, see if you can make some ‘sock fish’ that can be turned into environmentally friendly bunting for Pirate and Mermaid week!

Lots of people are working hard to help Coverack to be as safe and as welcoming as possible and we appreciate all the support we receive. 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 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.
