Government Lockdown relating to meeting others 

It is against the law to meet socially with family or friends unless they are part of your household or support bubble. You cannot leave home for recreational or leisure purposes (such as for a picnic or a social meeting).

  • You cannot meet other people you do not live with, or have not formed a support bubble with, unless for a permitted reason.

Public seating in the Tanyard

Picnic benches

Following reports relating to large gatherings in the Tanyard, concerns relating to non-compliance of Covid-19 restrictions and advice received from Devon & Cornwall police and Cornwall Council, to minimise the risk of COVID-19 infection through social contact, the decision has been taken to move the picnic benches out away from public use.  We hope residents will understand that public health during this crisis is a high priority.

If you are using the any of fixed seating in the Tanyard please observe social distancing.
