Welcome to Kenwyn Parish Council Website



The Government has announced that play equipment can re-open from 4th July 2020. The Parish Council is working hard to meet the guidance issued by the Government. You will notice some differences when you visit our parks in future. All the equipment is being safety checked and will be thoroughly disinfected with Anti Bac prior to re-opening. We are having to remove our picnic tables as we are being asked to deter different households from congregating in close proximity. We also have to remove our gates and other touch points. Some equipment such as swings will be removed in order to maintain the social distancing required by the Government. Signage will be in place and we ask you to please read that prior to using the equipment and also to maintain the social distance rules at all times. We will provide Sani Stations in our play areas for your use. We also ask you where possible to use wipes to clean the equipment before use. Thank you for working with us to keep everyone safe :)

Kenwyn Parish Council wishes to thank all the volunteer groups right across the Parish for all the hard work, dedication and incredible generosity shown to residents of Kenwyn Parish during the current Covid-19 Pandemic.

It is truly remarkable how these groups have come together in very little time to support our more vulnerable residents throughout this difficult time.

We are aware of many tasks being fulfilled, from shopping to DIY, transport to medical appointments, dog walking, donations of food and other items and of course to ensure all members of the community are safe and not in need of anything.

It is absolutely amazing and we just want to say a massive thank you to everyone involved. It makes us all very proud of our parish and our communities.

Well done and if we can assist further with anything please contact us on the above numbers.
