Joint statement from GLL and Cornwall Council

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Wed, 15/07/2020 - 18:52

GLL and Cornwall Council welcome the recent announcement by Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden MP that leisure centres, gyms and pools will be allowed to reopen from July 25. 

Re-opening in Cornwall will be phased for safety reasons – prioritising centres best suited to being COVID-secure in the first instance and then gradually rolling out others.  

From July 25, the following will open: 

Bude Leisure Centre – gym and fitness classes only 

Liskeard Leisure Centre – gym and fitness classes only 

Bodmin Leisure Centre – gym, fitness classes and outdoor tennis only. 

St Austell Leisure Centre – gym, fitness classes and swimming pool 

Newquay Waterworld – gym, fitness classes and swimming pool 

Helston Sports Centre – gym and fitness classes only 

Truro Leisure Centre – gym, fitness classes and swimming pool 

Newquay Trampoline & Play Park – trampoline area, subject to final review of COVID-safe options. 

Like theatre venues across the country, the Princess Pavilion in Falmouth will remain closed in accordance with government guidelines. 

The following centres will not be in the first round of reopening on July 25: 

Ships & Castles Leisure Centre, Falmouth 

Launceston Leisure Centre

Saltash Leisure Centre

St Ives Leisure Centre

Wadebridge Leisure Centre

GLL is a charitable social enterprise that employs around 900 staff in Cornwall. The cost of keeping centres in hibernation for four months with no income, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19 and how services will be delivered, has resulted in a total funding shortfall of around £5m.

Negotiations are continuing to find a solution to what has become a serious financial challenge and, together with local MPs, we have jointly been lobbying Government for a rescue package similar to the one that is now in place for the arts.   

Leisure centres provide an essential public service and we are really looking forward to welcoming customers back.

BBC partners with Cornwall Council to improve language skills

Cornwall Council - Latest News - Tue, 14/07/2020 - 12:30

The BBC and Cornwall Council are partnering to help improve the language skills of under-fives as part of a new national campaign. 

Tiny Happy People is a five-year initiative backed by Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge. It aims to support parents and carers in developing the language and communication skills of their 0-4 year old children. 

This will be achieved through a range of free digital resources, including fun activities, videos, articles and quizzes specifically designed for the initiative, with a focus on everyday routines. 

Developing communication skills at an early age helps children to thrive

Cabinet Member for Children, Health and Wellbeing, Sally Hawken, said: “We are delighted to be working with the BBC on this project, which fits perfectly with the work we’ve already being doing through our Real Heroes Read Books campaign.  

“We all want the best for our children; supporting them to take every opportunity and we can do this by helping them develop their language skills.  Sadly, too many children are starting school without these skills – and all too often if there’s a gap at the very start of school, it tends to persist and grow.” 

Evidence shows that more than 1 in 4 children (27%) in England do not reach the necessary level of literacy development (language, communication and literacy skills) by the time they start primary school, rising to more than 1 in 3 (42%) in deprived areas. The picture is similar across all nations of the UK.** 

Cornwall is an official Tiny Happy People Hub and we have been working closely with BBC to share the Tiny Happy People resources with parents and professionals via social media during lockdown.  

At the heart of the project is a simple philosophy – talk to your children from as early an age as possible, including during pregnancy.  

Visit the Tiny Happy People website

Head of Early Years at Cornwall Council Carol Kimberley said: “We are really excited about this opportunity and to be working with the BBC team.  Our teams have already been sharing the information with early years providers and families and the feedback has been excellent.  

“Encouraging children to learn to love and explore their language skills is one of our core aims and in so it will help them throughout life” 

Tiny Happy People offers a huge library of evidence-based free resources that are proven to have a positive impact on the speech and language development of 0-4 year olds. They’ve been developed and quality assured by front line professionals and experts.  

The content is fun and easy-to-understand as well as to incorporate into everyday life. There are fun activities and a range of short films, articles and quizzes that will support language development, as well as great tips for new and soon-to-be parents and advice to support parent’s well-being.

** In Scotland, by age 5, there is a 13-month gap in vocabulary development between children from low-income and high-income households (May 2014). In Wales, 4 in 10 children are not at the expected level of development in maths, language, literacy and communication at age 4 (Sep 2019). Also in Wales, poor children who are performing well at age three are more likely than their peers to lose that advantage and fall behind by the age of five (Sep 2015). In Northern Ireland, 38% of five-year-olds have below average vocabulary skills. This rises to 65% of children who experience persistent poverty (Sep 2015)
