A message from the Mayor

Happy New Year to you all. To start on a happy note, I would like to wholeheartedly welcome Pamela Lavelle in her new role as our Town Clerk, and Angela Retallack as our brand new Deputy Town Clerk. What a team we have looking to the future.

We are in a position to help as much as we can during this latest lockdown, but unfortunately, we have had to close our office doors to the public. We are still carrying out most of our operations and meeting virtually as often as required and are still accessible by phone or email.

The Emergency Response team is back with a member of our volunteer team on the emergency phone link 01326 565761 from 9am to 5pm from Monday to Friday until further notice. I am so grateful to all those that continue to voluntarily help our community in these difficult times. They are part of the support system that our wonderful front line professionals are leading.

Let us all contribute to keeping our community safe. With vaccinations now becoming available to the most needy in Helston, we still cannot be complacent. Please keep an eye out for our vulnerable neighbours. Let’s stay positive and help where we can.
