A message from the Mayor


I am delighted and very honoured to have been elected as Mayor for a second year. The past year has seen us continue the battle to throw the shackles of Covid from our everyday life. Helston is returning to normality and the future is very promising.

I think we can all agree that the return of Flora Day produced an amazing day that pleased so many. A month earlier we had the privilege of HMS Seahawk exercising their freedom to march through the town in celebration of their 75th anniversary of their commissioning.


At the end of May we saw The Guildhall open for the public consultation regarding the place shaping plans for Helston Town Centre. These are exciting plans and many years of work have already been undertaken to develop the concepts to this stage.

 Though Helston is not guaranteed money from the governments levelling up fund, we know that we have the support of our local MP and Cornwall Council. If we are successful in the application to central government there will be a multi million pound investment into our town. My thanks go to all those who have been involved so far on these projects. The future is bright. I will continue to dedicate my efforts into making Helston a place that people want to live, work and visit.
