The 515 bus service timetable for Hayle to St Erth/Penzance via Marazion, is available to view on the web site then follow tabs: News>Parish News.  (It is also available here in section above.)
The Parish Council has been asked to remind everyone of the legal closure of footpaths 111/7/2 and 112/52/4 by Cornwall Council, due to the rapidly deteriorating erosion of the River Hayle at Carbis Mill. The footpaths have been closed for legitimate safety reasons and therefore interfering with the signs or cutting through the fastenings closing the footpaths constitutes criminal damage and anyone using the closed section is trespassing.
Now open for essential items:  Garden waste and general rubbish (black bag waste or bulky items).  Not for paper, glass or plastic recycling.   If the last digit of your vehicle number plate is even, then you may only visit an even date of the month. Even numbers include the number 0 (zero). If the last digit of your number plate is odd, then you may only visit on an odd date of the month.
