A message from the Mayor

My word, hasn’t Spring come upon us all of a sudden! It’s wonderful to see some colour return to our town, especially after such a stressful winter. This is my last report as Mayor of this wonderful town, as we move to the season that would normally have included Flora Day. It is such a disappointment that we are not able to enjoy this special day yet again. I hope we can all celebrate at home in our own way. 


I would like to take this opportunity to thank The Town Clerk, the team and the members for managing the Town Council in such a difficult time, while allowing us as members to continue to operate as effectively and as safely as possible. I am also grateful for the response of our residents and businesses who have patiently dealt with life and work in order to minimise the risks, keeping our infection rate relatively low, some volunteering to help our vulnerable and needy residents. Our thoughts are with those that have lost loved ones or have suffered illness.

Even though we have some time to go yet to be clear of the pandemic, I feel that there are reasons to be positive. It will mean hard work and resilience, but I have faith in our council and our community to pull together to help each other to return to a better future, especially for those that are not able to help themselves.

The local elections are on May 6th, so I look forward to seeing some fresh new faces putting themselves forward to enhance our Town Council and Cornwall Council. Thank you all again for supporting me in my role as mayor over the past three years it has been very interesting and most enjoyable despite the hardships we have faced together.

Best wishes to you all.

Councillor John Martin
