A message from the Mayor




Over the past few weeks, I have had the pleasure of attending a couple of events at Helston Community College. Firstly, to see the achievement awards for the Year 11 students, considering how disrupted the last 2 years have been for them it was a joy to see what they had achieved. Last week I had the pleasure of taking part in a charity auction arranged by pupils. The event raised £2,250 which is being directed towards the DEC Ukraine appeal.

The summer holidays start next week and there are a multitude of activities taking place in Helston throughout the summer. There are a series of concerts by Helston Town Band at Coronation Lake, along with a theatrical production and other amusements. CAST are running a series of events throughout the summer for youngsters as is the Museum of Cornish Life. Glazed Expression are running events encouraging youngsters to undertake some work with clay. There is an International Guitar Festival being held in the Epworth Centre in August and as we approach Harvest time our Harvest fair, dog show and carnival will be taking place.

Please take the opportunity to enjoy all of these events, details of which can be found on the Discover Helston and other media sites. Please enjoy the summer make the most of our wonderful surroundings. To those students awaiting exam results I wish you the very best.
