Packet newspapers - OUT TOMORROW

A sneak peek of this week's Falmouth/Penryn and Helston Packets

In this week's Falmouth/Penryn Packet - out tomorrow!

A Falmouth policeman well known for his public presence on Twitter and for organising the "Gangnam Policeman" video earlier this year, has been suspended.

Sergeant Gary Watts (picture below) faces allegations of gross misconduct and has been temporarily removed from his post while an internal inquiry is carried out.

Falmouth Packet:

A Penryn woman who admitted drinking “a considerable amount” before driving was arrested by police after she called them from a telephone kiosk. She told officers: "OK. I drove. I am guilty."

Despite being sworn in as mayor of Falmouth for the 11th time on Monday night, Geoffrey Evans admitted to the crowded room that he was “more nervous than I have ever been.”

The wartime bombing of Penryn was remembered with a special memorial service at the weekend.

For the third year running the event, which took place at the town’s Memorial Gardens, paid tribute to the 18 victims who died in a raid on the town in May 1941:

A long standing member of Falmouth Coastguard was rewarded for two decades of service this week. Watch Officer Ken Bazeley received his 20 years service medal from on Thursday.

MEANWHILE

In this week's Helston Packetout tomorrow!

A predicted shake up of out-of-hours health care could see Helston's GPs leading the takeover of control.

Coverack Primary School on The Lizard has been rated a “good” school where staff and governors raise expectations, prompting pupils to make good progress in English and maths.

Helston's re-elected mayor has looked back on a year of successful new beginnings at the same time as warning against complacency.

Helston and West Cornwall MP Andrew George has been made to pay back more than £22,000 worth of profit from a taxpayer-funded London home.

Huge crowds turned out for the Queen's visit to West Cornwall last Friday, but one little known excursion was her return journey home via Helston's RNAS Culdrose.

While the flags and bunting may have been packed away after the Queen's departure from St Michael's Mount, the royal visitor remained in Cornwall for a little while longer:

Her colour outfit really suits her, but i always wonder if on maybe just one public occasion, she would like to wear something more casual and maybe leave her hat at home. It is a lovely picture.
