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

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

 

First up: The streets of Falmouth are beginning to resemble a tip with rubbish, litter and overgrown weeds taking over, but if everyone spent just one hour tackling the area around their homes or businesses the town could be transformed in just one day. The Packet joins the campaign to clean up Falmouth.

Next, it was all glamour for Penryn College prom. Plenty of pics in the Packet this week.

Changes to the amount and the way potentially dangerous fertiliser is stored at Falmouth Docks would shrink the so-called “blast zone” which restricts development around the yard, councillors heard this week. Read more in the Packet.

Plans for up to 300 new homes in Falmouth are due to be debated by councillors on Thursday, with a recommendation that the scheme be approved.

*******************************************************

Over in Helston: A £10 million transformation of Helston Community College has been pulled up short after being yellow carded by Sport England.

Developers hoping to build 60 homes on land at Porthleven have written an open letter to the town council in a bid to answer concerns raised by some residents. The Rowe family have submitted a planning application for 31 affordable homes and 29 open market houses to be built on a field off Shrubberies Hill, together with access, car parking and a public open space area.

Helston College pupils were also celebrating the end of their school life at their prom at the Falmouth Hotel. See the full gallery in the Helston Packet.

St Michael’s Church, in Helston, was full on Monday for the funeral of local journalist Noel Perry. Mourners from near and far gathered at the service to remember and pay tribute to him. Read the full story in the Helston Packet

More than four fifths of people surveyed think Helston Police Station should be reopened to the public. This was the finding of a Packet poll, which saw 86 per cent of people surveyed voting “yes” to the question: “Would you like to see Helston Police Station reopened to the public?” Read the full story in the Helston Packet.

For all this news - and much, much more - don't forget to pick up your copy of the Falmouth/Penryn and Helston Packets... Out tomorrow!

Has someone different written the preview this week because the format is different?
All sounds very interesting.

i noticed the different format too. Look forward to my weekly read again. Lets hope they take notice of the Packet survey and re open the Police Station. Random comment , just saw a notice in the Sweet Pea Flower Shop , that due to one complaint from a customer they will no longer be having their plants for sale displayed outside. Shame as outside displays normally attract people in to buying, notice the Spar shop does the same . Wonder why the person complained in the first place ?

Is it a disability issue I wonder with the space on the pavement.
Nat West Bank next door has people standing on the pavement using the cash machine and people with children in buggies etc that one has to negotiate round so I don't really see the problem with a few flowers outside the shop. They are trying to reinstate the market attraction in the town so it seems a shame if there can't be a few flowers outside a shop on display for sale.

What gets on my nerves is all those police cars parked outside the police station looking bright and cheery, I think they should move them out of the way a bit more as they are a distraction lol

Seriously though, I would be interested to know the cause of the complaints about the flower shop display.
Come along Packet please !!!!!!
