A message from the Mayor


With the wonderful colours of Spring emerging, there is an optimism within the town, despite national disarray. We have appointed our new groundsmen who start in April so I am sure that we will soon see an improvement in the way the town looks to us and to our visitors.

The developments at the Coronation Lake are marvellous, with the skate park being reinstalled very soon. We are grateful for the efforts of the South Kerrier Alliance and to Helston In Bloom. The plans to commence markets at the Monument Walk are well advanced. The first one is to take place on April 11th.

I am looking forward to a positive Spring and, of course, our fabulous Flora Day in May.

I am honoured to represent such a lovely town in the depths of beautiful Cornwall.

Councillor John Martin
