What To Do In An Emergency

Here is a copy of the Mary Tavy Parish Council Emergency Plan. As well as containing information on what the Parish Council should do in the event of an emergency it contains, in Annex A, contact details for all Mary Tavy councillors and for the Emergency Warden / Snow Warden. The plan was agreed by the Parish Council in May 2018 and modified in December 2019 to include up to date contact information.

You can also download the document “some useful emergency contact details” which may be of help in an emergency. The details are correct as of December 2019

New item for the website, ‘Where is this?’.

Travelling around Mary Tavy there are hundreds of places you may have never seen. So as an insight into the area, pictures will be put on to the website and you have to guess where it is.

The answer will be shared when the next picture gets posted.

Where is this Picture taken below? Yes it’s river but where?

The Picture below is on Kingsett Down, you can just see Wheal Betsy behind the rock.

Where is this picture taken below?

Answer… Inside the Chimney stack of Wheal Betsy

So where is the picture below taken? It’s Horndon Clam. That’s the shortcut from Horndon to Peter Tavy.

Once you could drive a tractor down the track, but no more.

The Place above is Horndon Clam. This place is very special and only the brave gets to go down to the river.
