Welcome to the official website for the Parish of South Petherwin. The site exists to provide impartial  information past and present for the parish. All Parish council minutes from November 2012 can be found at the Council Minutes page in accordance with  legislation and in the future further information in relation to the Parish Council will also be available from this site. The aim is to make as much as possible available online so that everyone can be kept up to date on the Council’s workings.

The site has recently been revamped with a cleaner look and a new logo. To keep things easier to navigate only news headlines will appear on the home page with the more detailed news now available at the Parish News page. It is hoped that everything is laid out so that whatever you need to find is easily navigatable.

V.J. Day

I am deeply moved by the TV footage marking the VJ Day 70 year commemoration's. The emotional pain and sense of The Forgotten Campaign is palpable. Ex far East servicemen and women along with the men and women caught up in the events and the horrors which unfolded. Such cruelty in an inhospitable climate.
One can but only admire and salute those servicemen and women who battled through the jungle to victory.
And for the prisoners of war an enduring painful memory continues to grip our very soul, with such cruelty and suffering. And yet the human spirit survived and hope kept the 'plucky' British spirit alive.
Alas upon return to the British ports no cheering crowds.
No welcoming home party.
Arrive home and get on with your life and forget what you have done!

Lest we forget let us remember all those whose lives were lost in the Far East campaign..
