It is great to see that so many people, locals and visitors, are making the most of the King George V Memorial Walk on Sundays when it is closed to the vehicles.  However, all users must remember that it is closed to vehicles except for access. There have been reports of incidents, to the extent where cars have been attacked and their drivers verbally abused when they are merely driving to their own home.  Residents of the Walk have been issued with permits which will be displayed in their windscreens and we ask that all users respect that some people will need to drive to and from their properties.  The Police are aware that these incidents have occurred and have assured us that they will make regular visits to the Walk on Sundays.

Hayle Heritage Centre grand opening!


Harvey’s Foundry Trust is pleased to announce that Hayle will finally have a heritage and cultural centre based at John Harvey House on Foundry Square.  We have been working with Falmouth design company 20/20 and local historians to create a centre that gives residents and visitors a chance to learn about Hayle’s fascinating history.

The centre will be open to the public from Friday the 30th of August. From 10.00am onwards the renowned local storyteller Mark Haradon will be here telling specially written stories about Hayle for us - come along to listen to tales of deadly rivalry and adventure.

On Saturday the 31st at 11.00am you will be able to take a guided tour around Harvey’s Foundry with local historian Kingsley Rickard from the Trevithick Society. And in the afternoon from 1.00pm we are holding a kids craft afternoon  - a chance for children to learn about their local history whilst making a print they can take home.

The centre is free admission and all the activities are free. Places are limited so please contact the Trust to book your space.

The centre has a core exhibition that provides an overview of the history of Hayle and we will have a rolling programme of temporary exhibitions, events, workshops and lectures throughout the year. We will also be running family workshops over the school holidays, so please keep an eye on our website and the local press for information.

We are also looking for volunteers to get involved with the running the centre, so if you have a passion for history and your town please get in contact.

The centre will be open Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Saturday 11am to 4pm throughout September with reduced opening hours during the winter months (as at 29 October 2013 opening hours are: Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday 10am to 3pm).

For information on how to get involved or book a place on an activity please contact Laura Christon on 01736 757683 or via email on, you can also check out our website at

Ways to participate at Hayle Heritage Centre:

Download the app over your wifi before you come while comfy at home (look at or Hayle History on Facebook on how to do this) or come to Hayle Heritage Centre for instructions. You will need to walk to experience the app - it starts in Foundry Square by the Hayle Heritage Centre, goes down Penpol Terrace, along North Quay & King George V Memorial Walk.

There will also be a way to see what questions people asked Hayle residents and those visiting Hayle You have the opportunity to give your answers and to ask new questions.

Hayle Honours Pordic - Our Twinning Partner

After a lot of effort over a long time, the Hayle Twinning Association has managed to get a street named after our twinning partner, Pordic.

Parc Pordic is off Highlanes, not far from the Hayle Community School, and it is a daily reminder of our friends in Brittany.

Hayle Town Council would like to inform members of the public that Police Community Support Officers in Hayle can issue fixed penalty tickets for dog fouling.  It also encourages members of the public to report to Cornwall Council, via its website, people who allow their dogs to foul in Hayle.   The Town Council hopes in the near future to be able to make 'doggie bags’ available for free at various accessible premises in the town, for example at local shops, so that if dog walkers are caught unprepared they can easily make use of this service. 

Watch this page for confirmation regarding the availability of free bags!

Safer Cornwall Website

The Town Council has agreed to help promote Devon & Cornwall Police’s community safety surveys to help officers to gauge local issues. There is a new internet based survey process set up through the Safer Cornwall website: - The surveys will help Police and other partners understand and address local concerns. It is hoped that local residents will spare a few minutes to complete the survey.

Potential New School and Community Sports Facility

Hayle Town Council and Hayle Community School are investigating the possibility of building a new indoor sports facility, located on the School site, should funding be available.

The School is taking the lead on the Project, supported by the Town Council and needs to establish potential levels of support and usage, to build a Business Case and subsequently apply to funders.  It is envisaged that the Scheme would cost between £2.2M and £2.5M to build and could include the following:

  • A 4 court sports hall suitable for a wide range of sporting use
  • A state of the art gym
  • A dance studio
  • Reception/social area
  • Separate entrances and changing facilities for school and public usage

There would also be dedicated car parking provided.


Initial meetings have been held with Cornwall Council, Carrick Community Leisure (Cornwall Council's Leisure operator), Cornwall Sports Partnership and George Eustice MP and the need for the facility has been clearly established.

Hayle Harbour Traffic Management

Following complaints from harbour users regarding unregulated parking on East Quay, which is restricting access to vessels and that of delivery vehicles, the Harbour Authority has taken the decision to bring in

a local parking enforcement company Llawnroc to manage the problem.

Local businesses situated on the quay and harbour users will be issued with parking and visitor permits

by the Harbour Authority;  any vehicle not displaying a permit will be issued with a parking notice.

CCTV Returns to Operational Status

Following a demand from Cornwall Council for very high charges to keep west Cornwall's CCTV operational, most of the towns involved decided to pull out. Thanks to an initiative of Hayle Town Council, the towns were brought together and a new funding model agreed to.

After a period with the CCTV system unmonitored, we are pleased to announce that we are back to operational status. As before, Remploy has the contract to supply the monitoring staff and they are already trained to use the Police radio system.

There is a plan for an Emergency Services Hub in the near future and the CCTV system will be monitored there when it is up and running. In the meantime the cooperation among the towns will enable the CCTV system to continue to protect our citizens.

The towns currently part of the agreement are: Hayle, St. Ives, Camborne, Redruth and Helston. It is hoped that Penzance will join soon.
