Plastic Free Penzance

Plastic Free PenzancePlastic Free Penzance is a new group set up as part of the Surfers Against Sewage 'Wasteland' campaign (see https://www.sas.org.uk/wasteland/about/)

They hope that the group becomes a platform for the community to work together and to promote positive change in order to reduce single use plastics in the town. They'll be working with a range of organisations and businesses, visiting schools and holding beach cleans and other events to raise awareness and share information. It's a really exciting project and they've got a lot of work to do. So, if you'd like to lend a hand, please get in touch with them!

They've had lots of questions on what individual action people can take on single use plastics. So, think what things you're finding it hard to replace? They'll look into the alternatives and share ideas.

Cornwall Councillor Cornelius Olivier is organising a march from Mousehole to Penzance on Saturday February 10th to hand in a petition calling for an extra levy on second homes and holiday lets.
The money raised would be used to build much needed social housing and affordable homes for local families. It's also asking for the changing of a property from a primary residence to a second home to be subject to planning controls.
