Check that your child’s car seat is safe at free events

With 27% of parents confused about car seat safety Cornwall Trading Standards and Fire and Road Safety are offering free community car seat safety checks at the following venues between 9.30am and 3pm:

  • Tuesday 21 March 2017 at The Children’s Ark, Pendeen School, Church Road, Pendeen, Penzance, Cornwall, TR19 7SE
  • Wednesday 22 March 2017 at St Stephens Community Academy, Roydon Road, Launceston, Cornwall, PL15 8HL
  • Tuesday 28 March 2017 at St Austell Children’s Centre, Woodland Road, St Austell, Cornwall, PL25 4RA

The law regarding booster seats for children changes on 01 March 2017. The new rules don’t affect existing models of seats or cushions and it doesn’t mean that they are illegal so parents who already own and use backless boosters will still be permitted to use them. However 66% of parents with children under the age of 12 do not know the current laws about child car seats and these changes may encourage parents to consider checking how their child travels.

April 2017

Charity Walk - St. Austell
The 8 in 8 Challenge - Saturday 8 April 2017 - 10am

A 10 mile circular walk from Tywardreath, through Golant, Fowey, Polkerris, Polmear and returning to Tywardreath.  The aim is to visit 8 specified pubs along the route in eight hours, taking in parts of the SW coast path, estuary footpath and the Saints Way.  An accompanying quiz will require a visit to each of the pubs in order to find the answers.

The aim is to have an informal, enjoyable day with breathtaking views, a chance to visit the local pubs in the area and raise funds for The Fire Fighters Charity and the Merlin MS Centre in St Austell, plus help boost the local economy!

Registration will be between 10am and 10.30am at the New Inn, Tywardreath (5-10 minutes walk from Par railway station) which will be open to provide refreshments and food.  We are asking for a donation of £10 from all participants.  A quiz sheet and route map/directions between each of the pubs will be provided.
