Nanny Moore’s Bridge
Nanny Moore’s Bridge will be closed from 8th- 19th March
This is partly due to the need to replace the timber handrails that have rotted beyond repair and also to prep the wood ready for a re-paint. Dulux Paint Centre have kindly agreed to supply paint for the bridge aptly named Breakwater Blue, which is very similar to the existing colour.
If all goes to plan a community paint is being planned for potentially the 13-14th March weather and work dependent.
It’s Census Day on March 21st.
Households across Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly will soon be asked to take part in Census 2021, the once-in-a-decade survey that gives the most accurate estimate of all the people and households in England and Wales.
