If you are interested in helping to shape the way Hayle will look from now until 2030, join in the Neighbourhood Plan process. This is one of the most important changes to planning law in a generation and allows those of us who live in Hayle to make legally binding rules about planning issues.

This has to be driven and supported by the community, so have your say.

The Neighbourhood Plan web site is at and our Facebook page is here.




The Swimming Pool is due to open again on Saturday 21 June 2014 and will be open daily from 11am to 6pm, weather permitting, until Sunday 7 September 2014. We can confirm that entrance prices have not been increased for the third year in a row and once again season tickets will be available to purchase. In fact, we are promoting a pre-payment arrangement to allow regular users to pay for season tickets in instalments, prior to the opening. Contact the Clerk’s office for details.

We are also pleased to be able to confirm that the Town Council has agreed to continue with the free entry to the pool on Tuesdays for all residents of Hayle and/or the TR27 postal code area. This scheme proved to be very popular last year and the idea is to give something back to all who contribute to it. Free Tuesday Swim Passes may be obtained from the Pool office from 21 June 2014 upon proof of residence and identification. 

In the meantime, there is much hard work being undertaken once again, mostly by a team of volunteers. Members of Friends of Hayle Pool, Hayle Model Boat Club, the Town Council and local users have combined forces to prepare the pool for the season. If you would like to get involved feel free to come and join the merry team every Saturday throughout June, from 10am.




Hayle Town Council is currently offering a new opportunity to promote local businesses using the open space available at the Hayle Outdoor Swimming Pool, which is managed by the Town Council.

The Council’s proposal is to offer advertising boards (see the form here for sizes and prices) which will be fixed to the internal face of the fence at the swimming pool, which is open for 11 weeks in the summer – this year from Saturday 21 June to Sunday 7 September.

This initiative offers an exceptional opportunity for businesses and services to promote themselves, whilst demonstrating support and commitment to the swimming pool, which is a much loved facility in the town.  Following the loss of financial support from Cornwall Council the Town Council is hoping to maintain and improve the pool and is grateful for any support from the commercial sector, which complements the great efforts being made by the Friends of Hayle Outdoor Swimming Pool (this year’s Organization of the Year).

Two advertising packages are available for purchase:  Package A and Package B.  Within both packages you have a choice of two sizes of sign – 3’ x 2’ or 4’ x 4’.  (Sizes other than these are negotiable.)

Package A includes the purchase of advertising space and the provision of a sign featuring your company’s information, which will be fixed to the fence by the Town Council.

Package B includes the purchase of advertising space only.  A sign supplied by you will be fixed to the fence by the Town Council.

The signs in Package A will be made locally at discounted prices by Pro-creations of East Barn, Green Bank, Connor Downs, Cornwall TR27 5DA; website:; tel: 01736 756932.  (Please note that any signs purchased in this package will also contain the name and contact details of Pro-creations.)

Councillor David Cocks is representing Hayle Town Council in this venture.  If you are interested in purchasing a package please contact Cllr Cocks on 01736 448908 or 07836 358582 for further information and/or return a copy of the form here, completed with your details as applicable, to or by post to the address at the bottom of the letter.  If you are purchasing Package A your form will then be forwarded to Pro-creations for exact costs and you will be advised of them.  Upfront payment for both packages can be made either by bacs (contact the Town Clerk's office for details) or by cheque made payable to Hayle Town Council.

The Town Council hopes that you will choose to take advantage of this unique opportunity to promote your business and to help support the Hayle Outdoor Swimming Pool.


Fire Station Update

Turf Cutting for the New Hayle Community Fire Station

Deputy Chief Fire Officer Paul Walker is "delighted to be able to let you know that construction work has now started on our Camborne, Redruth and Hayle Emergency Cover programme. 

"On 14 April we were joined by our partners, elected members (past and present) and staff from Kier to cut the turf at the sites, a fantastic moment for the service and all of those who have worked so hard over the last four years to make this a reality.

"We anticipate that the new Community Fire Stations will be completed in late 2014 and Service Headquarters completed in early 2015.  This will be of course subject to sustained periods of inclement weather which may cause delays with the construction process.

"Further information is available on our CPRH Internet pages where we will be posting updates through the construction phase: "

FREE Hayle Churks mobile app on iTunes

Get an insight into those who lived & worked in Hayle before by walking where they walked.  Experience another Hayle by hearing stories spoken in their words and accents.

The Hayle Churks iPhone app is available to download now FREE from iTunes. 

The app, created by Lucy Frears, uses Hayle Oral History Project recorded memories plus photos and maps from many local and international archives such as Hayle Community Archive, Cornish Studies Library and Imperial War Museum.  Made to experience while walking around Hayle with iPhone and headphones (GPS triggers the sound and images as you move), there is also a ‘listen at home’ mode so that people can access the memories/photos whether they are in Hayle or not on iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch.

Download from iTunes here.  Please review it on iTunes and you may want to chat about it or share your memories, photos and films on Facebook, Twitter or historypin.  As it was made as part of PhD research your comments are very welcome and useful.

The Hayle Churks app is a walk through stories rather than a guided tour so be prepared to piece together the evidence you are given – stories, information on screen & archive photos plus clues in the physical landscape.

The app is partly funded by a Heritage Lottery Fund All Our Stories grant in partnership with Falmouth University and has been made during an ESF supported PhD research degree.





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.
