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.

If you have any comments or more importantly have any information please contact rogerpyke1@gmail.com

Can you help?

The Parish Council minute books prior to 1920 (we believe they date back to 1887) are missing (despite checking, the Cornwall Records Office appear not to hold them). We wanted to see if any parishioners may know of their whereabouts?  If you have any information as to their whereabouts please contact Alison Barham, South Petherwin Parish Clerk, Pentreve, South Petherwin, Launceston, Cornwall, PL15 7JA.

South Petherwin School Autumn Fair

This years South Petherwin School Autumn Fair was a " Brilliant" event according to its younger attendees.
South Petherwin PTA organised the event which included a barbecue, Willow crafting, apple bobbing and horse rides. But the main attraction was the mobile Skatepark arranged by South Petherwin Parish Council working in partnership with the school. This extends an already effective working relationship with the installation of new play equipment by the council on school grounds described on the day as, "Fun and cool".
Tempus Leisure arrived with the mobile park at 9am and by 10ish officer Paul Meadows and his team had assembled the ramps with a number of children waiting to have a go (below).

Their responses included, "Brilliant, awesome, amazing and epic". All ages had a go from 3-30+ yrs.
Cllr Andrew Hosking and Cllr Phil Parsons hope to work with the PTA again. Cllr Parsons added, " This was such a successful day and the children have asked when will it happen again? Depending on the PTA and parish council it would be good to run it again next spring or early summer. I would like to thank the PTA, Andrew Hosking, Tempus Leisure, the Parish Council and especially the support of the South Petherwin Wind Turbine Fund. I'm sure all the mums and dads would agree with me the children enjoyment was clear to see even after the odd tumble!"

In an act of remembrances on a wet and windy November Sunday morning South Petherwin parishioners gathered together beside the War Memorial. Traffic stopped and local people stood in silence for 2 minutes in the rain to show their respect for both lives of past and present servicemen and women. The main service continued in the St Paternus church.
