A message from the Mayor

After a fine musical week with the Hellys International Guitar Festival in August, I was impressed by the efforts made by everyone involved in the Harvest Festival.  I was moved particularly by the turn out at the carnival. Not only had the participants and volunteers made a marvellous effort, but the town’s residents that turned out in large numbers to support the event were magnificent.  

Helston Makes It, presented us with a lovely opportunity to enjoy the creative talents of our town. Also, last month I was proud to attend the 70th anniversary of the opening of Helston Museum. What an important asset to the town’s community and heritage this is.

I have very much been impressed by the team involved with authoring the ground-breaking Helston Climate Action Group Action Plan. This has been very well received county wide. It is now online for all to view. We hope that a lot more of the town’s residents and businesses will get involved in these very important projects.

Looking ahead, I see that the Christmas Lights team are testing and preparing for the season ahead. Hasn’t the year flown by!
