Ten years of firefighters' Phoenix Project success

First published in News

Falmouth’s councillors have paid tribute to ten years of success for a Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service project.

The Phoenix Project, which works with a variety of adults and youth in Cornwall to raise self esteem through a variety of mental and physical challenges, has been running for a decade.

A representative from the project, Mark Philpott from Cornwall Fire and Rescue gave an overview to councillors at a full council meeting.

Councillors heard how the scheme started, challenges that it has faced, and how it has grown into such a success over the years.

Falmouth’s mayor Geoffrey Evans presented a Falmouth town coat of arms plaque to Mr Philpott, a senior instructor working on the Phoenix Project saying he had been aware of the project since its inception and that he and the council were proud to have supported such a worthwhile scheme.

He added that the council thanked all those involved at Cornwall Fire and Rescue Service and other partner groups and agencies for all their hard work.
