A message from the Mayor

We thoroughly enjoyed this summer’s Freedom Parade. It was a day of glorious weather and the new format meant that those who lined the pavements of Coinagehall Street were able to see and enjoy the whole ceremony. I felt extremely privileged to bestow the Freedom of Helston on our friends at RNAS Culdrose.

Yet another sunny and warm Sunday greeted us for our annual Civic Service on July 14th. A joyful turnout with Helston Town Band playing throughout with wonderful skill and verve - I have received many compliments from the mayors of our neighbouring towns who joined us that afternoon.

We are now in the holiday season when we welcome visitors to our town, which is looking quite smart. Please welcome them with a smile and a friendly nod.
