<strong>Truro</strong> Community<br />

Refugee Support<br />

<strong>Truro</strong> Community Refugee Support<br />

(TCRS) is a Community Sponsorship<br />

Group formed to welcome our<br />

local area families displaced by war or<br />

conflict and help them rebuild their lives.<br />

The original idea was raised at a Hendra<br />

Community Group meeting with members<br />

keen to welcome a family into their<br />

midst. The inspiration came from the<br />

Falmouth and Penryn Welcome Refugee<br />

Group. After some initial enquiries it was<br />

decided the project was too big for Hendra<br />

alone, so the net was cast wider. Over the<br />

past 18 months a group of committed and<br />

skilled people have gathered. They will<br />

support all areas of resettlement required by<br />

the Community Sponsorship programme,<br />

from learning English to finding schools for<br />

their children, translating and making a home<br />

their new sanctuary.<br />

A big challenge has been raising £9,000, a<br />

pre-requisite of the project. This has been<br />

hard, but the group has had the good<br />

fortune of generous support from All Saints<br />

Highertown, who raised £1,000 at a recent<br />

quiz night, a Christmas collection of over<br />

£500 made by the kind congregation of<br />

<strong>Truro</strong> Methodist Church and a grant from<br />

The Shapiro Foundation of over £3,000,<br />

amongst other fundraising events and<br />

generous donations.<br />

The next challenge is finding a home.<br />

The housing crisis in Cornwall and the rise<br />

in Airbnb properties is affecting this and<br />

despite many letters to landlords, estate<br />

agents, the church and following up<br />

on leads and ideas this remains the next<br />

part of the journey. Anyone who has or<br />

knows someone who may be able to<br />

help can contact the group by emailing<br />

tcrstruro@gmail.com<br />

DINING<br />

Wellbeing is not just for some it’s for<br />

everyone….<br />

Welcome to Colours Cafe and Wellbeing<br />

Centre. Meet Debi Dudding. Some of you<br />

may know Debi when her cafe was located in<br />

St Mary’s Street Mews in <strong>Truro</strong> five years ago<br />

and thrived for three years.<br />

Due to its success the cafe began to outgrow<br />

the location and an opportunity arose to move<br />

into New Bridge Street just a short hop and<br />

skip away; opposite Oxfam. Her passion for<br />

hospitality shone through during our chat<br />

and it is clear she wants people to visit from<br />

all walks of life and experience her vision and<br />

nirvana: a little retreat to unwind, breathe,<br />

gain perspective on life and eat wholesome<br />

and nourishing food or sip a cup of Organic<br />

Tea Tonic.<br />

She certainly has tenacity and hides it well<br />

under her calm and warm exterior. Having<br />

recently given birth to a baby girl (now 9<br />

months old), faced the challenges of running<br />

a new business whilst pregnant and during<br />

covid and several lockdowns, to her credit,<br />

she has come out the other side with renewed<br />

vigour and more passion to share Colours<br />

Cafe and Wellbeing Centre with <strong>Truro</strong><br />

residents, visitors and other Cornwall dwellers.<br />

The Wellbeing Centre offers classes from<br />

Iyengar Yoga, Breathe-Yoga-Relax, Pilates,<br />

Full Moon Feminine Circle, Morning Vinyasa<br />

and much more. As well as the classes, there<br />

are 7 therapists who offer their own individual<br />

specialty. I was fortunate to experience a<br />

well-needed massage from Elena West.<br />

She used a combination of Thai massage<br />

techniques, holistic massage and cranial<br />

sacral therapy on me. I felt so relaxed and<br />

rejuvenated after the treatment.<br />

When I arrived at the museum,<br />

the county, the Town Crier, the High Sheriff<br />

and other significant persons from history.<br />

Cream teas were laid out with strawberry<br />

The past, and future almost being<br />

celebrated together in this somewhat<br />

surreal living history. I still find it crazy<br />

when I open my eyes in the morning, and<br />

sometime throughout the normal routine<br />

it occurs to me that I am the Mayor of<br />

<strong>Truro</strong>. Celebrating the Platinum Jubilee and<br />

being part of it from this side felt even more<br />

special than other events.<br />

excited and telling stories of previous<br />

jubilees they had been to.<br />

The parade began: everybody had a<br />

good day. Over the weekend I visited<br />

other community groups, a couple of<br />

street parties, and the word community<br />

was used more than any other word. Yes,<br />

the Jubilee was discussed, the Queen, and<br />

the celebrations. But it always came back<br />

to the community and that’s what I take<br />

away from this weekend. The sense of<br />

bringing it together, and if I can play a part<br />

in continuing that then I will have fulfilled<br />

my pledge. Everything I do, I try to stay<br />

true to my main aim which is to reduce the<br />

suffering for myself and others.<br />

Looking forward to more community<br />

years. Anybody up for the coronation?<br />

Enchanted<br />

Woodland in<br />

<strong>Truro</strong><br />

Chris Waddle has been a <strong>Truro</strong> Woodland<br />

Ranger working for <strong>Truro</strong> City Council<br />

since 2019. He was inspired to create the<br />

Enchanted Trail. Chris told me that <strong>Truro</strong><br />

City Council took over ownership of the<br />

land from Cornwall Council a few years ago<br />

and Chris had the imagination to regenerate<br />

the whole area into a more useable space<br />

for everyone, as it was on the doorstep of a<br />

large housing area.<br />

John Rowe (local resident) volunteered to help<br />

Chris turn the woodland into an enchanted<br />

one, by using his carpentry skills to build<br />

magical fairy boxes with fairy doors to the<br />

woodland. With extra help from volunteers<br />

from different community groups such as St.<br />

Petrocs, residents, charities, learning-need’s<br />

groups, together Chris and John have made<br />

the woodland into the magical site - the<br />

Enchanted Trail it is today. Each fairy door has<br />

a story behind it and has been made for a<br />

particular person/people. Each creation takes<br />

around a week to make alongside other<br />

projects that John has ongoing.<br />

Skye (left) and Elsie (right) both enjoying looking at the Fairy<br />

doors.<br />

Pictured below is John’s favourite fairy door as<br />

many people helped to donate things for its<br />

construction and also, currently it is the largest<br />

fairy box in the woodland. Since its creation,<br />

at least 4-5000 people have visited and many<br />

have travelled far and wide to take a peak into<br />

this fairy land.<br />

the ‘enchanted trail’, having been shown<br />

it by her friend Felicity a couple of weeks<br />

ago, and in turn she showed it to her friend<br />

Jenna, Elsie’s mum. Sarah knew the children<br />

would love it. She says, “I think anything<br />

that maintains childhood innocence and<br />

encourages them to “believe” for that little<br />

bit longer, should be treasured. What John<br />

has created is magical - he took the sorrow of<br />

lockdown 2020 and turned it into something<br />

joyful that can be enjoyed for years to come.<br />

COMMUNITY NEWS<br />

Naturally<br />

Connected<br />

<strong>Truro</strong> Loops is a project that was developed<br />

by <strong>Truro</strong> River Working Group (TRWG) with<br />

ideas and support from the community,<br />

looking at more and better access to the<br />

river and the countryside beyond to<br />

enhance outdoor opportunities for <strong>Truro</strong><br />

residents, visitors, and employees alike,<br />

for all abilities.<br />

The group is entirely run by volunteers and<br />

has been active since 2014 and was able to<br />

secure European LEADER funding in 2017.<br />

That enabled a Feasibility Study to be<br />

undertaken into the options for improving<br />

access to the river and countryside beyond.<br />

The Feasibility Study was concluded in March<br />

2018 and identified six potential loops for<br />

walking and cycling access, as well as two<br />

possible locations for bridges, alongside<br />

several complimentary projects such as<br />

interpretation and biodiversity enhancements.<br />

It defined the current scope of what is defined<br />

as the <strong>Truro</strong> Loops project, with lots of scope<br />

to expand in the future with more Loops and<br />

further projects.<br />

Following completion of the study, the <strong>Truro</strong><br />

River Working Group volunteers worked hard<br />

to look for funding to start implementing some<br />

of the recommendations in the study and<br />

built relationships with local stakeholders and<br />

partners to raise the profile of the <strong>Truro</strong> Loops<br />

project. This resulted in<br />

the project being shortlisted<br />

in the first stage of<br />

further European funding.<br />

The bid was successful,<br />

and supplemented by<br />

further funding from Cornwall Council, a first<br />

phase of <strong>Truro</strong> Loops is now under way and<br />

approximately £1.6 million is being invested in the<br />

local area, under the lead of Cornwall Council.<br />

<strong>Truro</strong> River Working Group have worked with<br />

the Town Deal team and provided detailed<br />

information for inclusion of the pedestrian and<br />

cycle lifting bridge connecting Boscawen Park<br />

and Newham in the bid. The bridge is now a<br />

priority project being considered by the Town<br />

Deal Board and included in the Business Case<br />

that is being prepared for submission and<br />

approval by government later this year.<br />

The first phase of <strong>Truro</strong> Loops now under<br />

implementation through Cornwall Council and<br />

Cormac includes improvements to Newham<br />

Trail and the City Centre, as well as TRWG<br />

providing a website, map, interpretation, and<br />

community engagement to further raise the<br />

profile of the <strong>Truro</strong> Loops project.<br />

Loops is a project being driven by the voice<br />

of the community and volunteers who<br />

have some time to spare. For volunteering<br />

opportunities, please look at our website and to<br />

by the much-appreciated<br />

help of local charities,<br />

community groups and<br />

volunteers, who worked<br />

alongside our Countryside<br />

Ranger. From here, you can<br />

walk alongside the river,<br />

wander through the<br />

broadleaved trees, and<br />

overlook the wildflower<br />

meadows.<br />

Within the Coosebean<br />

Woodland you will find<br />

the Enchanted Trail. This<br />

magical trail allows families<br />

and children to explore<br />

the fairy doors, which were<br />

created by volunteers and<br />

local residents. As well as<br />

the footpaths, there is<br />

also a cycle path that runs<br />

parallel to the Enchanted<br />

Trail.<br />

The Countryside Ranger<br />

team is dedicated to<br />

making sure that this area<br />

is accessible to all and have<br />

created boardwalks that are<br />

suitable for wheelchair users.<br />

Brass Band<br />

players wanted!<br />

The City of <strong>Truro</strong> Brass Band has been in<br />

existence for over a hundred years.<br />

Throughout this time period the band has<br />

given great enjoyment to the residents of<br />

<strong>Truro</strong> as well as the thousands of holiday<br />

makers who visit the county during the<br />

summer period each year.<br />

The band has entered many brass band<br />

contests and achieved great results over<br />

the years, but now concentrate more on the<br />

social and enjoyment side of making music<br />

together.<br />

The past few years have been difficult for<br />

many bands, including <strong>Truro</strong>, but now that life<br />

is returning to normal the hope is that many<br />

players will return to the ranks to enjoy making<br />

music again.<br />

undertaken by<br />

Cormac and that the finished job was looking<br />

bit’ to get the work started and having the<br />

whole area back to looking its best.<br />

who pass through it when going to Malpas<br />

village, and beyond. The Friends Group meet<br />

COMMUNITY NEWS<br />

Respect<br />

the sea...<br />

Living in <strong>Truro</strong>, there are many delightful<br />

beaches to visit. Although fairly new living<br />

by the Cornish sea, I have come to realise -<br />

through experience - that “I want to go<br />

for a swim” involves taking into account<br />

a number of crucial factors, one being -<br />

the tide!<br />

Checking the tide beforehand is critical. I once<br />

went to one of my favourite spots where the<br />

sun was just emerging and high tide had come,<br />

gone and going out again. There had been<br />

a storm the night before, the RNLI truck was<br />

parked at the entrance of the beach and the<br />

red flag was up. No-one could swim in those<br />

rollers! I hadn’t checked the tides or the<br />

weather before going. So, from now on<br />

whenever I want a swim - I do my homework!<br />

A few days later I decide to check out<br />

Trevaunance Cove in St Agnes, a new place<br />

for me. I checked the timetable, tide was high<br />

at 03.45am and it was definitely on the way<br />

out, but still the waves were quite strong, so<br />

I wasn’t wholly confident I was going to get a<br />

swim. When I arrived at 7.30am it seemed<br />

a surfers‘ paradise and therefore definitely<br />

not on my own! Phew! I felt safe enough to<br />

venture in…<br />

As long as you respect the sea - don’t turn your<br />

back too long on the waves - you can have<br />

great fun jumping waves and having a dip. If<br />

you are taking your family or alone make sure<br />

you do your homework first before you visit.<br />

Chapel Porth has become one of my favourite<br />

places to go. It’s easy to get to from <strong>Truro</strong>,<br />

(stop en- route with my coffee cup to pick up<br />

a coconut latte - 30p off with my own cup!). As<br />

a National Trust member car parking is free. If<br />

you get there early enough you beat the tangle<br />

of cars coming up and down the steep path<br />

- which can get tricky in the middle of tourist<br />

season. Recently, I arrived just before the tide<br />

was going out. I enjoyed my best swim ever -<br />

and actually had a swim! I picked the right time<br />

that’s for sure, and there was no one around, so<br />

it was like swimming in my own private, huge,<br />

salty bath!<br />

When the tide goes out, it leaves vast expanses<br />

of beach which are for the whole family’s<br />

enjoyment. As long as you know when the<br />

tide is coming back you can plan when to pack<br />

up your stuff and return home - and not get<br />

stranded, or wet! If in doubt seek, advice from<br />

professionals. Enjoy the beaches but keep safe<br />

and don’t take unnecessary risks!<br />

Useful websites:<br />

www.cornwall-beaches.co.uk<br />

www.rnli.org/beach-safety<br />

www.rnli.org/ripsafe<br />

In an emergency dial 999 for the coastguard<br />

And don’t forget to put on sun cream. If there<br />

is a slight wind it will make it seem cooler -<br />

that’s when you risk getting sun burn.<br />

RNLI top 5 Beach<br />

Safety Tips<br />

1 - Float to Live<br />

If you find yourself struggling in the water, or<br />

if you fall in unexpectedly, you should Float to<br />

Live. Just lean back and use your arms and legs<br />

to help you float. Wait until you can control your<br />

breathing, then call for help or swim to safety. If<br />

you have children, it’s important to teach them to<br />

float too. You could practice when you go to the<br />

swimming pool.<br />

One of the risks at the beach is rip currents. They<br />

are strong currents that can quickly drag you out<br />

to sea. Watch the video: www./rnli.org/safety/<br />

beach-safety<br />

4 - Call 999 in an emergency<br />

When you go to the beach, always carry a means<br />

of calling for help. If you’re going in the water,<br />

you can carry your mobile phone in a waterproof<br />

pouch. That way, if you find yourself or spot<br />

someone else in an emergency situation, you can<br />

get help.<br />

In a coastal emergency, call 999 if you’re in the<br />

UK and ask for the coastguard.<br />

2 - Choose a lifeguarded beach<br />

In 2021, RNLI lifeguards aided over 40,000<br />

people on the beach. Choosing to visit a<br />

lifeguarded beach gives you and your family the<br />

protection of highly trained lifeguards. They can<br />

see the dangers develop, prevent accidents<br />

before they happen and respond instantly if<br />

anyone gets into difficulty.<br />

5 - Know your flags<br />

If you visit a lifeguarded beach, there will be flags<br />

on the beach to show you where it’s safe to swim.<br />

If you’re planning to swim or bodyboard, stay<br />

between the red and yellow flags. For surfboards,<br />

stand-up paddleboards or other non-powered<br />

craft, go between the black and white chequered<br />

flag. You should not swim there.<br />

If a red flag is flying, the water is dangerous. Do<br />

not enter the water under any circumstances.<br />

3 - Know the risks and what to do<br />

When you’re heading to the beach, it’s<br />

important that you know the risks and what you<br />

can do to minimise them. From rip currents to<br />

tides, cold water shock to waves, being aware of<br />

the dangers will help you to stay safe.<br />

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) volunteer lifeboat crews provide a 24-hour rescue<br />

service in the UK and Ireland, and their seasonal lifeguards look after people on busy beaches.<br />

The RNLI are the charity that saves lives at sea. Will you help them today, to save someone’s<br />

tomorrow? Go to: www.rnli.org/support-us/give-money/donate and donate.<br />

Bringing colour<br />

into <strong>Truro</strong><br />

<strong>Truro</strong> BID funds and installs the<br />

annual colourful bunting to improve<br />

the appearance of the city centre.<br />

This year about four times the volume of<br />

bunting has been put up around the city<br />

including at Victoria Square, Boscawen Street,<br />

Lemon Quay, Pydar Street, Duke Street,<br />

Lower Lemon Street, Walsingham Place and<br />

King Street. Lemon Street Market and Tinners<br />

Court were also given a supply of bunting by<br />

<strong>Truro</strong> BID to install.<br />

The red, white and blue colours were<br />

chosen to celebrate Her Majesty The Queen’s<br />

Platinum Jubilee <strong>2022</strong> celebrations and the<br />

colourful bunting will continue to flutter in Our<br />

Great Little City until October.<br />

As well as the bunting, <strong>Truro</strong> BID funds 50%<br />

of the hanging baskets and seasonal planting<br />

which is delivered each summer by the Parks<br />

Team at <strong>Truro</strong> City Council to brighten up the<br />

city.<br />

Pounding the Beat<br />

During the first lockdown, Jenna, like<br />

everybody else, was looking to keep fit<br />

at home.<br />

A friend mentioned an exercise class inspired<br />

by the fun of drumming: Pound, the rockout<br />

workout! Pound is a whole-body workout for all<br />

fitness levels, with modifications for absolute<br />

beginners to total rockstars! During a Pound<br />

class you use drumsticks designed specifically for<br />

exercise (slightly weighted and thicker for easier<br />

grip) to drum to the beat of the music.<br />

Like most things, Pound was now being taught<br />

online, so Jenna attended classes all round the<br />

world. It was love-at-first-strike; Jenna wanted to<br />

share Pound with <strong>Truro</strong>.<br />

As well as classes, Pound also offered instructortraining<br />

online. This was perfect for furloughing<br />

from work, Jenna could now attend the<br />

training at home. On May 9th she gained<br />

her instructor-certificate and was now able<br />

to teach this infectious class.<br />

Jenna on the left with the ‘Pound’ ladies<br />

When classes could be taught inside again,<br />

Jenna was able to teach Pound. But then,<br />

the third lockdown came and the gym had to<br />

close. Jenna shelved her drumsticks.<br />

After the third lockdown a refurbished Threemilestone<br />

Community Centre re-opened and<br />

classes could be taught inside again, Jenna is<br />

now able to bring the class she loves to <strong>Truro</strong><br />

every Thursday night at 6.30pm.<br />

If you fancy giving this fun-class a go, then<br />

Fire and summer safety advice<br />

Avoid holiday complacency<br />

If you’re on holiday, it’s important to be<br />

even more aware of your fire safety and<br />

indeed general safety. Whether camping or<br />

caravanning, you need to think about fire<br />

safety and the safety of your family. Don’t<br />

let fire become your uninvited guest on<br />

your holiday.<br />

Know what to do in an emergency:<br />

Camping safety<br />

If camping, here is some general safety<br />

advice:<br />

· a fire can destroy a tent in 60 seconds, so<br />

make sure you have an escape plan. Make<br />

sure you have at least one torch, - never use<br />

candles or have any kind of naked flame in or<br />

near to a tent<br />

· find out what the firefighting arrangements<br />

are in place for the campsite<br />

· know the address of the campsite and<br />

postcode<br />

· tents should ideally be pitched at least six<br />

metres apart from other tents<br />

· do not smoke inside a tent and keep lighters<br />

and matches out of the reach of children<br />

· always cook outside and well away from your<br />

tent and don’t cook near flammable materials<br />

or long grass<br />

· store flammable liquids or gas cylinders away<br />

from the tent<br />

· take a Carbon Monoxide detector with you<br />

· In the event that someone’s clothes catch<br />

fire- stop, drop them to the floor, smother with<br />

a blanket or large item of clothing to quell the<br />

flames, then get them to roll<br />

Caravan and mobile home safety<br />

Much of the advice about fire safety in<br />

caravans and mobile homes is similar to<br />

that at your own home.<br />

· park caravans and mobile homes at least six<br />

metres apart<br />

· if there’s a fire – get out, stay out and call the<br />

Fire and Rescue Service immediately, know<br />

your location and postcode<br />

· fit at least one smoke alarm and Carbon<br />

Monoxide detector, test regularly<br />

· consider installing a fire blanket and fire<br />

extinguisher, read operating instructions<br />

· do not dry clothes on or right next to a heater<br />

· turn gas off and other appliances when not<br />

in use<br />

· do not smoke inside<br />

· never leave cooking unattended<br />

· never put water on burning oil or fat<br />

Relaxed Opening<br />

Hours at Royal<br />

Cornwall Museum<br />

Did you know that the Royal Cornwall<br />

Museum in <strong>Truro</strong> offers monthly relaxed<br />

opening hours, 10am-12pm on the first<br />

Monday of every month?<br />

The museum’s relaxed opening hour is designed<br />

to accommodate those who appreciate a calmer<br />

visit. Visitors will have the freedom to explore the<br />

museum without the hustle and bustle of regular<br />

opening hours, with a dedicated chill out space and<br />

noise reductions in place throughout the museum.<br />

The museum’s welcoming team will be there to<br />

accommodate you the moment you step in<br />

through the door.<br />

Everyone is welcome, but this session is primarily for<br />

families with autistic children, autistic young people<br />

and adults, adults living with dementia, adults and<br />

children with mental health problems and any other<br />

visitors with sensory needs who may enjoy a relaxed<br />

visit with families, friends, and carers.<br />

Make it a night<br />

to remember!<br />

Lauren Campbell, Engagement Officer at the<br />

museum says, “We’ve been running relaxed<br />

opening hours for a number of months now<br />

and the response from the community has been<br />

really positive. Sometimes museums can be an<br />

overwhelming place for those with sensory needs<br />

but they also can have a wealth of benefits for<br />

people’s mental wellbeing. We hope that by<br />

providing these relaxed openings we can reach<br />

as many people as possible and enable them to<br />

engage with Cornwall’s art and heritage.”<br />

To attend the relaxed opening hours, usual entrance<br />

fees apply but there is no need to book ahead.<br />
