Discover Helston Magazine – correction to Helston Town
Council ‘Good to be green’ article
Helston Town Council wishes to issue an apology for an error contained in the ‘Good to be green’ article in the March 2023 edition of the Discover Helston magazine. The article refers to Helston Town Council as ‘the first Council in Cornwall to produce and adopt a Climate Action Plan’ which is incorrect. Whilst the Town Council endorsed the Climate Action Plan, it was produced by the Helston Climate Action Group and the Town Council does not wish to detract from the hard work of the individuals involved who rightly deserve the credit for producing this document.
Should you wish to obtain further information on the Helston Climate Action Plan, or to view the document in its entirety, you can do so at the Helston Climate Action Group website at https://www.helstonclimateaction.earth/climate-action-plan/

Civility & Respect Pledge
At the Full Council meeting on 26th September, the members of Helston Town Council unanimously agreed that HTC should take the Civility and Respect Pledge.
The Civility and Respect Pledge is an initiative started by the National Association of Local Councils, working with partner organisations, to put civility and respect at the top of the agenda and start a culture change for the local council sector. Throughout the sector there are growing concerns about the impact of bullying, harassment, and intimidation on local councils, councillors, clerks and council staff.
Helston Town Council has signed the pledge to show its commitment to standing up to poor behaviour across the sector and its support for positive changes in relation to this issue.
