Dear Helstonian

I would like to thank everyone for their very kind wishes as I take up the duties of Mayor. My consort Jonathan and I are really looking forward to being at the centre of Helston life.

Our granite heart
You may have read that I am going to use some of my time as Mayor to try to improve Helston’s pavements. We are ready to start fund-raising and securing help from the county council, with the aim of repaving as much of the town centre as we can with original-style granite slabs. I believe it will transform the look and feel of the town if we can swap the broken pavers, bricks and tarmac patches for our traditional local granite.
The job is a big one, and it will not be cheap. Quality never is. I believe that local families will be keen to see as big a transformation as possible, and be happy to make their own contribution by sponsoring a pavement section. Sponsorship is welcome from everyone. Would you like to sponsor a slab, or a few slabs?
Anyone wishing to make a contribution, please watch out for more details. I don’t yet know how we’ll organise it, but I’m confident that Helston folk will want to help take care of our own granite.
Clean and tidy
Now that Flora Day is over (wasn’t it a lovely day?) let’s not let the town slip back into needing special cleanups. Let’s keep on top of it. Helston in Bloom’s efforts will soon be in flower. I’m sure we’ll have a sparkling summer!
Finally a word about our new website - please take a moment to look though the information which is now available here - you can find out about Council meetings, when they will take place and what will be on the agenda, as well as looking through minutes of previous meetings. You can also find out who is on the Council and what they do and we have put together useful information such as details of local organisations and events.  There is even a bit of local history to remind us that we are only custodians of our town and owe it to past and future Helstonians to look after its heritage,

With best wishes

Gillian Geer
