Workers who are unable to carry out their usual jobs because of measures against the Covid-19 virus have been urged to help farmers by picking fruit and vegetables over the coming months.

George Eustice, environment secretary and MP for Camborne, Redruth and Hayle, said that this kind of work would usually be done by seasonal workers from overseas. However, at the moment, there were only a third of the workers in the country that will be needed by British farmers during spring and summer.

Mr Eustice did not explain how the workers would be recruited but he said that many more workers were needed. ‘We are working with the industry to find an approach’, he said, ‘that will encourage workers to take a second job, helping get the harvest in, in June.’

People who cannot currently work for their usual employer may look for a job elsewhere providing they receive the necessary training.

According to the British Growers Association, farmers need 70,000 seasonal staff every year but, because of the Covid-19 crisis, not many foreign workers are available to them and they are unable to recruit enough local staff.

Owners of holiday homes have received £50 million worth of funding which was offered to small businesses in Cornwall to help them survive the Covid-19 crisis.

This information was revealed by councillor Cornelius Olivier and he added that he was not happy that holiday home owners were eligible to apply for this funding.

According to Mr Olivier, about 5,000 owners had applied for the grants, because their houses were being run as a small business, and they had received £10,000 each.

Councillor Olivier said that the government should prevent holiday home owners from running them as small businesses because, by doing so, they were avoiding council tax and business tax as well.

Cornwall Council has been made responsible for distributing the funding provided by the government and it said that it had paid £195 million to more than 17,000 businesses.

Last week, the Welsh government said that holiday home owners could not apply for the funding if they did not receive the majority of their income from that business.

Julian German, leader of Cornwall Council, said that the council would like to have similar powers but that they would have to be agreed by the Westminster government.

A charity in Cornwall that supports young people who have to look after family members at home is concerned that they may not be getting sufficient time to relax because of the Covid-19 crisis.

Kevin Downing, a spokesman for the charity Kernow Young Carers called on young people, under the age of 25, to get in touch with other young carers online.

Mr Downing said that the charity contacted more than 2,000 young carers in Cornwall each week to offer support.

And in Falmouth, a group of lifeguards will be receiving their training online rather than on a beach.

Matthew Stone, a trainer at Gyllyngvase Surf Lifesaving Club, said that, so far, more than 200 lifeguards had been trained by the club and that he did not want to stop his work because of the virus.
