Coverack October Update

Coverack, October 2021.  

We would like to thank all of those people who are continuing to keep our little village and its occupants as safe as possible. 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 times. Thank you to everyone who has supported Coverack Space 2000’s summer events, and to all those who have volunteered for us. Without your support, we wouldn’t be able to run these popular community events or offer financial support for additional activities at Coverack School.

In particular, thank you to the following people for volunteering to help with our summer events: Paula Shea, Joan Kersley, Jill Newell, Angela Clay, Geoff Clay, Sue Bryant, Terry Thompson, Hannah Dagger, Kate Dagger, Marshall Dagger, Jo Foster, Arthur Foster, Henry Foster, Peter Wood, Vanessa Millar, Graham Swindon, Caroline Beadle and Robert Beadle. (Apologies to anyone I’ve inadvertently missed off.) Many thanks to all those who’ve supported Coverack and CS2000 in other ways.

The Church notices

Services are getting back to normal but masks are still to be worn and social distancing continuing.  Singing is permitted ‘masks on’ during the high virus numbers in the county.  Viv Lynn and Liz Watts will return to playing the piano and the organ from mid-September.

We hope to return to other activities in St Peter’s Hall.   Look out for news of Lunch Club, Table Tennis, Monday Club and other activities.  Little Fishes has restarted on Thursday’s 10:00 – 12:00.   

Contact Joan Kearsley 280337 if you wish to book the Hall for new activities in the Autumn. 

St. Peter’s Church Roof Fund

Funds are building to nearly 50% of the quoted figure thanks to generous donations from church members.  We are hopeful of officially launching the project with a concert (covid permitting) and hope to qualify for a grant to enable the work to be done before the winter.

Coverack Space 2000 Community Group:  This group was set up to raise funds for additional space at Coverack School, and has continued to organise events in the village, promote Coverack and support the School. It also maintains the Coverack Village Cornwall website, Coverack Village Facebook and Instagram pages and provides a monthly update of What’s On in Coverack. CS2000 actively supported the recent campaign to keep all of Coverack School open and will support funding for wrap-around care for Coverack School children.
The What’s On in Coverack 2021 booklet is in circulation, and was delivered to every household in Coverack. Please consider making a donation to CS2000 if you appreciate receiving this booklet, through the Pay Pal button on our website: Coverack Village Cornwall. What’s On booklets can also be bought from Coverack Village Stores.
The sale of second hand books from the box outside Coverack Village Stores helps raise funds for CS2000 – thank you so much to everyone who has supported.
