Welcome to the official website for St Germans Parish Council

Latest Parish Council News
We are facing an unprecedented civil crisis in modern times with the threat of Coronavirus. We know that many St Germans residents will be very anxious about the current situation.

There have been some excellent local examples of people and groups helping others and we need to tackle this together. We all have a part to play and your Parish Council will work with Cornwall Council and public health agencies to do all we can in this time of emergency.

On behalf of your Parish Council may we take this opportunity to send you and your families our best wishes, please do follow government guidance, encourage others to do so and stay safe.
