A message from the Mayor

It's that time of year again. Helston looks wonderful with the display of Christmas lights complimenting our beautiful town centre. Along with the dedicated businesses who entered the Christmas shop window competition all helps to make Helston a joyous place to visit. Hopefully next year we will have even more entries.

However it is our friends, families and community that make this time of year so special. I have had the pleasure of attending events that celebrate this time of year including a wonderful concert by pupils from Helston Community College.

 Not everyone is in a position to celebrate Christmas because of challenging circumstances. I have chosen to support the Helston Foodbank as I am aware of the number of families who find this time of year a real challenge.

May I take this opportunity to wish everyone a peaceful and Happy Christmas with sincere wishes for a better year for everyone in 2022.
