Coverack May 2021 Update

Government Guidelines are changing as we follow the road map out of lockdown…we would like to thank all of those people who are continuing to keep our little village and its occupants as safe as possible.

Keep Coverack Tidy: Please take your litter home with you and clear up after your dogs. If you are able to safely litter pick, please do so. Also please Carry out a 2 minute beach clean whenever you visit the beach – if everyone did this we would have a lot less litter in the sea. In the current climate please make sure you take particular care: wear gloves, safely dispose of the rubbish and wash your hands after.

The majority of Coverack businesses are open and with hospitality industry planned to open further on 17th May we are heading back to normality. Please support the small independent businesses in Coverack and follow any safety guidelines that they have in place. Please contact individual businesses about their opening dates and times.
