Safety First

Thank you for keeping our spirits up lads, and I know you are keeping to the government safety guidelines."

Community Emergency Plan  

With the expanding Coronavirus situation Helston Town Council is gearing up to implement the Community Emergency plan.

To support the local community emergency plan that we will provide, more volunteers are needed! The more volunteers we have the stronger we are as a community.

We envisage volunteers will be able to carry out activities for those self isolating or having difficulties such as: picking up shopping, posting mail, collecting urgent supplies, giving a regular friendly phone call and or check.

All are welcome, recognising Coronavirus guidance we would particularly like to encourage those not in the ‘high risk’ groups.

Your first step is to contact Helston Town Council using any of the following:
Telephone: 01326 565761
Email: (please use “Volunteer” in subject title)
In Person: Call into HTC Offices in the Guildhall.
A volunteer registration form, which can be downloaded below, will need to be completed.

Remember, together as a community we can help each other!

A message from the Mayor

Now is the time for us to demonstrate the good spirit of all our Helston folk to help and support the vulnerable people that may be more at risk with the Coronavirus situation getting a hold of our community. We have to work well together to be effective.

We have a wonderful team in the Guildhall coordinating and encouraging volunteers from our town. We need a large team of these good people so that we can offer the support that’s needed.

We will take time in the future to reflect back on this important and historical effort so that we can enjoy our Flora Day and all the other events and venues again with our friends and families, with the thought that we were able to get through these days with spirit, strength and character.
