Parish Clerk

It was lovely to meet so many people at the joint coffee morning held by the Parish Council and the Parish magazine at the end of February.  A plethora of ideas were offered and a working group will be convened in order to plan an end of May 2018 celebratory event. If you would like to volunteer to be involved in the working group please let me know via email at

You may also be pleased to hear that South Petherwin will soon benefit from a mobile post office service. Commencing 6th March, a Post Office van will park in the Methodist Church car park each Tuesday and Friday between 1245 and 1345.

Speeding through villages such as South Petherwin remains a constant concern and to help address this Cornwall Council is to support the formation of mobile speed watch teams. Volunteers will be trained by the police to carry out speed checks whereupon speeding vehicle registrations will be recorded and action will be taken by the police for repeat offenders. Volunteers will work in villages outside of their own and will be asked to carry out speed watch duties once every two months. That all means that our Parish may have a team coming to South Petherwin soon. If you wish to become involved and would like to become a speed watch volunteer please let me know via

Finally for many years Roger Pyke has provided a hub for Parish information through his dedication and time given in generating and operating the Parish Website.  The Parish Council sincerely thanks Roger for his unstinting service; he will be greatly missed but hands on the baton to Phil Fox.  Accordingly, please now contact Phil with details of events or information that you wish to be distributed to the Parish.
