Carleen Village Hall/Garden Kitchen Cafe Trevena Cross Breage

Carleen Village Hall

Due to the CoVid 19 virus Carleen village hall committee have decided to close the village hall from 9 pm Monday 16th March, this also includes the snooker room. All groups should have been informed. We are doing this to protect our staff and committee and those who use the hall. The hall will open as soon as we are informed that it is safe to do so and all groups will be informed. We are sorry for the inconvenience to groups and bookings. We hope to be open before the AGM in June. Due to illness and retirement we will be looking for new committee members to fill the gaps. If anyone would like to be involved please contact Viv Treloar on 01736 762314. The open grass areas and the outdoor exercise areas and equipment will remain open for use.

Garden Kitchen Cafe

The Garden Kitchen Cafe at Trevena Cross Nurseries have today introduced a Takeaway menu  and free local delivery to Carleen and the local area in Breage Parish in light of all the self-isolation many of us may find ourselves in! This is a great idea and may be ideal for many people in the Carleen area to use over the next few weeks/months. 01736 763184.

Tony Woodhams

Chairman Breage Parish Council



The PSDCC committee have a duty not to expose either our community or ourselves to the CoVid-19 virus particularly as the majority of both the committee and the community are in senior years. We therefore feel that we are duty bound to cease all activity in the community centre until we know more about this virus.

As a result, we propose to cease all social activities  at the Community Centre from on 17th of March  and it  will remain closed until  it is advised it is safe to reopen.

We will be alerting customers through traditional and social media and through information at stations.

There is no change to the work between Truro and Penzance, which will start on Saturday 15 February and be completed before start of service on Monday 24 February.
