FREE HOT MEALS

CRCC have received funding to deliver another hot meals delivery scheme, funded for at least 6 months.

They have employed a professional chef who will use Lamorna, Nancledra and Sancreed village halls to cook good hot meals on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday respectively.  At 6pm volunteer drivers will collect the hot meals and deliver them to the homes of previously identified recipients – this scheme will start on 15th February.

The project is not means tested and there is no formal referral system:  If you know of anyone who may benefit from this scheme, please email Liz Wilkin, Rural Community Adviser, with  names, addresses, phone numbers and any dietary requirements of anyone in rural West Cornwall who is struggling to access food for whatever reason or who is feeling isolated. Liz’s email address is liz.wilkin@cornwallrcc.org.uk

Help @ Hand – Community Info

Our colleagues at the Farming Health Hub have alerted us to the existence of Help@Hand, a digital signposting app which shows you what services and support groups are available in your area via your GP surgery.

The real benefit of the Help at Hand App is that it is so easy to use. Whatever information the user is interested in just needs them to tap it and it will take you there.  If there is a number, you wish to call just tap it and it will start the call – no need to write the number down or even to dial it.  If you wish to email a contact, you come across simply tap it and it will set up you email message so all you have to do is write the message – no need to copy the often-lengthy email address etc.  If you want to read more about a group on their website or to attend a group or session just tap the web address and it will open up their website exactly where you need to be.

You can save your favourite services so no need to go hunting for them again and you can share the services with colleagues and friends.

All you need to do is download the app or visit their website – once you have selected your GP surgery on the map, click on “search” and you will see all the options available.

Alternatively you can visit their website on https://hand.community/

Dairy Farm near Penzance looking for a new team member!

New Year – New Opportunity!

Kerris Dairy is a new herd near Penzance that requires a new team member! Cows calve in a spring block during February and March with the majority of milk produced from grazed grass during the summer season.

We are looking for someone to assist with day-to-day duties including milking, calf rearing, grazing management, herd management, record keeping and some tractor work.

Whilst some experience would be an advantage, an eagerness to learn, the desire to work outdoors and a good sense of humour are essential!

Structured hours, time off and pay are negotiable depending on availability and experience; full or part-time considered.

To express an interest or to find out more about us and the role please get in touch.
