Nansledan Community Association Covid 19 update
PLAY PARKS AT NANSLEDAN
You may have received this letter regarding the play park in the CG Fry section of Nansledan from Blenheims. This message is a joint communication between the Nansledan Allotment and Community Gardens Committee (NACGC) and the Nansledan community Associstion (NCA).
This message from Blenheims is a result of a meeting yesterday with The NACGC, The NCA, The Duchy Reps and Blenheims where we discussed the park, including how and when we could open the park safely.
In summary, a decision, out of the hands of the NACGC and the NCA, has been made that the play park will remain CLOSED until further notice. The reasons are explained in the message from Blenheims. We are aware that most Council owned play parks across Newquay are due to open on the 4th of July with strict guidelines in place, the Duchy however, wish to hold ours back due to the size of our park and fore seeing social distancing being a concern. A full ROSPA inspection and risk assessment is also required before it can open safely for use. As soon as we are able to open the park we will let you know.
It has also been drawn to our attention that some young people have been entering the park, despite the signs saying not to. They have also become abusive to residents who have challenged them. It might well be that they are not from Nansledan, however, we are asking parents to remind their children that any area with metal fencing and builders signs are still classified as construction areas are out of bounds and are potentially dangerous sites. Anyone ignoring these signs are classed as trespassing and should be asked to leave. Failure to leave could result in police action being taken.
Thank you for your continued support and patience with the parks. We are all desperate to open them, however want to do so in a safe manner.
News from the NCA
The NCA continues to work behind the scenes to ensure we gather as much information as possible regarding the Corona Virus and its impact on the Community.
FOR THOSE WHO ARE EXTREMELY VULNERABLE & NEED HELP
We have been given a press release for the vulnerable who must shield themselves. The information you need is in this document.
Hopefully everyone who is extremely vulnerable will have received a letter from the government. If not please be sure to register. You will find a phone number and website link in the document.
COVID 19 VOLUNTEER GROUP
We want to bring all residents and businesses based on the Nansledan Estate up to date with what the NCA and the Covid 19 Volunteer Group are doing. There is a frequently asked question section below to answer, where possible, the questions raised by yourselves and information we have received from other Departments including Government Advice. This list will be added to as and when issues are raised. Please use this page as a first port of call to see if it answers your question. If not, send us your question and we will do our best to answer it.
As you are aware from various sources and from the notice that was delivered through every occupied house, Nansledan has set up a local support group which will do our very best to support those in need. This includes those who are self isolating, classed as vulnerable, and who have little or no support mechanisms in place to help in their hour of need. Many of you will have family who can assist, but we are conscious that some of our residents do have that luxury.
The support team has been split into three teams, with each team having a team leader (see details below) who is able to monitor and task their group as and when the calls come in. We will also be setting up a daily contact with each of those identified in the “at risk” category so that we are happy they have the necessary support on a day to day basis.
At this difficult time we realise that a simple phone call can make all the difference to people who may be lonely, feeling isolated and anxious. Again we will do what we can to help.
This website will also post local and national support groups available and we will more than likely point you to those groups when we are not qualified to manage a given situation.
We are asking for everyone’s support, please be mindful that we are volunteers and there may be times we cannot help you but will do our best to get you in contact with those who can help.

Follow the NHS guidelines on how to avoid catching Corona Virus Covid 19. NHS webpage. Please ensure that you follow the guidelines at all times. When out and about try your best not to handle things. However it is understandable that you will not be able to do this all the time. So if you have to touch things which can harbour germs then please wash your hands ASAP afterwards.
IN AND AROUND NANSLEDAN & THE SANG
SAFE DISTANCE: Keep 1 metre away from others when exercising.
DOGS: Keep dogs on leads at all times and discourage people from petting your dogs – dogs don’t get Coronavirus as far as we know but they are a ‘surface’ and therefore should be treated the same as any other surface.
THE SANG: Wash your hands before going to the SANG and on returning again all gate entrances are surfaces which can harbour germs for a period of time. The same goes when touching the bins around the estate and SANG.
DOG POO: A gentle reminder to clear up any dog poo. Keeping the risk of any person/child picking up tummy bugs from touching. Especially when our NHS is already under severe pressure.
PARKING AROUND NANSLEDAN:. We ask all residents to utilise your allocated parking spaces, especially in the current climate. All roads need to be fully accessible for emergency services. Which means no cars are to be parked near to corners or in any position which may cause an obstruction. If we all park in our allocated spaces, round the back of our houses in the courtyards, this will ensure there is room. Your support is appreciated during this difficult time.
BINS: All residents MUST keep their refuse and recycling bins inside their property boundaries when they are not being put out for refuse collection. There are a number of reasons for this. But mainly to help reduce the risk of contamination.
Bins must be kept inside your boundaries and NOT in the front of your house. As soon as the rubbish has been collected put your bins back inside your boundary or garage as soon as possible.
Guidance from the Council regarding waste, especially from households where there is a risk of those being infected, is that all waste should be double bagged and separated for approx 72 hours before being left for collection.
Please follow the Government and NHS guidelines as per the link on this website.
Common symptoms present themselves as flu like symptoms including, fever, cough or difficulty breathing. So please follow NHS guidance.
Stay at home and self isolate for 7 days if …. high temperature, or new cough continues. If another household member has symptoms, you must stay at home and not leave the house for 14 days even if you feel well. The 14 day period begins from the day when the 1st person in the house became ill.
There is a list of all residents who are Defibrillator trained. This is available on the website. If you are required to perform CPR you should conduct a risk assessment and adopt appropriate precautions for infection control.
Where possible, it is recommended that you do to perform rescue breaths or mouth to mouth Ventilation; perform chest compressions only. This is on the advice of the Resusitation guidelines 2010. If mouth to mouth is required then it must be done with a face-shield.
