Safety First

Helston Town Council ground staff are making every effort to work safely whilst doing an excellent job of keeping some of our verges clear. The Mayor stated "I've had so many positive comments about the lads litter picking and verge cutting. They are doing a great job in difficult circumstances, keeping our town tidy. Thank you for keeping our spirits up lads, and I know you are keeping to the government safety guidelines."

A message from the Mayor

As we move into Autumn, we must remember the hard work of our front line workers as they continue to try to deal with this awful pandemic. We must continue to live and work within the safety guidelines. The fine efforts of the Town Council continue despite these constraints. I value the hard work by officers, employees and members as they prepare for the months ahead.

Let us work positively and cooperatively as a community. The Helston Community Interest Company, the Helston Climate Action Group, Plastic Free Helston, Helston Town Tidy are enthusiastically progressing projects that will benefit our town, as are our businesses, schools, community groups, churches and sports clubs. I am heartened by their enthusiasm. Please support their efforts.

Ultimately, we have to rely on each other to support those that are vulnerable in our neighbourhoods. This October and November we need to support the Poppy Appeal and quietly respect Remembrance Day.

We all look forward to a new year when we can further demonstrate our community spirit and look forward as we adapt to new ways of living and working.
