Parish Council statement re COVID-19 Following the presentation regarding COVID-19 at the Parish Council meeting on 16th March, the Parish Council is anxious to do whatever it can to help parishioners at this extraordinary and difficult time. With the current advice to self isolate, the Parish needs to work together to help our senior and vulnerable parishioners through what may be a protracted period of time. Disregard of Government advice, panic buying, abuse of retail workers and hateful social media posts ~ these are all very sad symptoms of the current situation. We all should and must try to spread positivity and kindness through these difficult times. Anxiety is high and we must all think how our words may affect someone coping with the pressure of a sick relative, a key job, or isolation. After all this is over......all that really matters is how we treat each other.

The Parish Council is being proactive in trying to ensure that everyone gets the critical help they may need. There is ongoing advice via Landulph Innit Facebook Page. We have set up a Parish WhatsApp Group for instant messaging to 50+ Community Volunteers who are able to support the Landulph Parish Community. 
Furthermore, we are distributing #ViralKindness cards (included in this newsletter) to all residents to enable those who don't have Internet access a way to get in touch. For your reference, to access help directly, contact Martin Worth (Chairman) 07949 208055 or Roger Pugh (Co-ordinator) 07753 719483.

We urge all of you to look out for your neighbours. Please take every precaution, and wash your hands regularly to ensure you are spreading only kindness. Keep up to date with the latest government guidelines, and avoid physical and close contact (2m distance apart). With this in mind, please note that the play equipment at Penyoke Recreation Ground has been closed and is now out of bounds to everyone (notices are displayed and the gates have been taped shut) - parents please ensure that your children are aware of this.

Parish Council members' contact details are available here.

Welcome to the official website of Landulph Parish Council

Landulph parish comprises the village of Cargreen and the rural parts of Landulph, situated on the banks of the river Tamar.  It is in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, surrounded by Duchy of Cornwall land, and with Pentillie Castle and its 2000 acre estate to the north.  It lies next to the adjoining parishes of Botus Fleming, St Mellion and Pillaton.

The parish has a population in excess of 500.  It contains the Parish Church of St Leonards, the Landulph Methodist Church and a vibrant village primary school.  There is a thriving Yacht Club and, central to community activities, is Landulph Memorial Hall.  The hall is used for many events throughout the year, and provides a base for activities including the Film Club, Gardening Club, the Under Fives and Toddler Groups. 

Down by the riverside at Penyoke lies a playing field and a well-equipped playground for younger children.

Parish History
Cargreen was originally a thriving fishing and mercantile port, bringing prosperity to the whole of Landulph parish.  In the early 20th century, the landlord of the Royal Oak public house (which was situated on the quayside) also worked the ferry boat operation from Cargreen to Bere Ferrers, where travellers caught the train to Plymouth.

The community comprised of a number of farms and market gardens raising livestock, growing arable crops, soft fruit and daffodils, although these are no longer grown commercially today.  There is a small light industrial site near Landulph Cross.

Landulph Parish Church is one of  four churches in the United Benefice of St Dominick, Landulph and St Mellion with Pillaton.  The Landulph Methodist Church dates back over a hundred and thirty years.  The beautiful organ was built in 1850, and installed after the building of the Methodist Church.

The village of Cargreen used to have four shops and a post office, all of which have now closed.  There were once two public houses, but the last survivor the Crooked Spaniards (formerly the Royal Oak) closed in 2007.

Landulph Primary School has approximately 65 pupils from around the district and is now linked to as part of a multi-academy.  The school building incorporates a memorial to those who died in the Great War a striking clock, which is maintained by the Parish Council.

The Village Memorial Hall was built in 1970 to commemorate the second world war.  In 1972, the Yacht Club was formed, moving into a new clubhouse in 1995.  In 2000, in order to mark the millennium, a Celtic Cross was erected overlooking the crossroads by the school.

Landulph Parish Council was formed in 1894.  As a statutory body, it operates within the powers granted by local government legislation.
