Porthcurno waves

News and Events

Social events

We had 5 "in person" social events in 2021. These included an evening at the Minack where members could choose from a tour of the Minack gardens or an interactive tour and quiz on the Minack's "secret history". Over 30 people came and had a great evening, enjoying the drinks and cakes the Minack had kindly provided, and the expert speakers. This was followed by three "garden get-togethers" hosted by residents, and also a tour of the Museum and a look round the pub (currently closed while refurbishment plans are drawn up).

In between events why not test your knowledge by having a go at our Cornish cheese round from the St Piran's quiz we held online on 16 March here.  The answers are here.

PKRA meetings

​Our next meeting is on Weds 15 June at 7.30pm. You can read minutes of our most recent meetings here

Highways and byways

We are campaigning for a 20mph speed limit in the Porthcurno, working with the 20's Plenty campaign. The campaign has already featured on BBC Cornwall radio and in the Cornishman, with residents promoting the campaign with stickers and posters.

We are also working hard to get Cornwall Council to fulfil their promise to extend the double yellow lines up the Valley to the t-junction. Last summer cars parking on the road meant that on one occasion buses had to stop at Trethewey and could not travel to Porthcurno. You can see an example of the media coverage of this here.
