Helston tidy team paint the town perfect

Falmouth Packet: Helston tidy team paint the town perfect Helston tidy team paint the town perfect

Helston’s Town Tidy team has been at it again, this time sprucing up an area at the bottom of the town.

Running off the back of two successful clear ups of St Michael’s Churchyard, the group moved its energy to the area around Coronation Park, St John’s and Penzance Road.

Painting was the order of the day, with the railings getting a lick of black gloss in the same fashion that those in Meneage Street were given during Town Tidy Week earlier this year.

Over four hours the team, made up of members of Helston Business Improvement Partnership’s aesthetics group and supporters, also tided the grass verges and spruced up the benches in that area.

Katie Chown, a member of the group, said: “We got rained on but it was well worth it we think. We made a significant impact to a very visual entranceway to town – the highway along the cattle market.”

I think it all looks very nice and certainly makes a difference, which ever way Helston is approached now, the entry to the town gives a good impression.

How predictable was that Gillian, you put a nice positive comment about Helston and it gets thumbs down, I just think it shows the mentality and intellect level of some people reading this site, if they can't even manage to type a post themselves, illiterate maybe, or just pathetic, whether or not they agree with the BIP, what normal person wants to live in a scummy dirty uncared for town, so any improvements are a good thing and it is VOLUNTEERS giving FREELY their time to clean and tidy the town. I don't agree with everything that has been done or spent or agree with everyone, but I think only a moron would say cleaning and tidying a town voluntarily was a bad thing. Too afraid of getting thumbs down themselves instead of having the courage of their convictions and posting.
Don't let it deter you Gillian, at least you show you stand by what you believe in.

PR, whilst it may be a shame that people cannot place positive comments about Helston without having their comments 'disliked', I don't think it is fair to suggest that those who choose to read the website and yet maybe not comment, are "illiterate or pathetic", nor to judge the "mentality" or "intellect" level of those one may never have met, there could be many reasons why someone may choose not to post at all or not to post on the same articles as someone else. Freedom of choice is there for everyone. Whilst I personally would not 'dislike' a post without posting myself, I understand there are those that may choose so to do.
I personally am more concerned with the deduction of numbers on my bank statement than those on this website.

Fair comment Gillian. Are you this reasonable and placid with people all the time or just on line?

Bye the way, shouldn't Cornwall Council clean up Coronation park.

telstar1962, you need to check out the website quicker in future lol, I gave a you thumbs up on both your comments and a while ago I saw you had about 9 thumbs up on your latest comment, and before that I saw you had about 12 on your first comment, now all the points on everyone's comments on this link are dropping like flies again, its laughable lol
Who cares though, we know they are doing a good job cleaning Helston and the people that are cleaning it know they are doing a good job, no wonder some people think Cornwall is backward, if there are people in Helston that don't want a clean and tidy town.

I think anyone stealing from an honesty box is scum. Did you lose your temper Gillian?

The more thumbs down I get the more I will keep the comments going.

telstar, don't worry about the 'dislikes' on your posts.

The voting will not prevent the HBIP from doing what they are doing.

telstar I am not the Packets finest commenter, I am not popular and the majority of my posts are not either, very often I am too controversial, and hold the minority opinion, especially regarding my support for Helston Town Council or the HBIP.
As I have previously stated I 'like' most comments and do not 'dislike' without placing a comment myself, and I most certainly was not one of the people that 'disliked' your comment on this thread. Most of the time I do not even vote on my own comments and only tend to do so when they receive 'dislikes' about positive things. I do not know personally who anyone is that posts now on this site. I presume the intention of your last post is to publicly prove how unpopular I am.

telstar1962, your post so obviously to me is placed for completely the wrong reason, several times lately you have placed what to me are barbed comments aimed at Gillian about the voting, on this link you yet again mention about your lack of thumbs up on one of your comments, yet YOU told people in the past when it seemed to upset meerkats that if they didn't like the voting or it hurts their feelings then they should ignore it, you seem now to me to be the one that doesn't ignore it, at least with meerkats, ronedgcumbe and Gillian they say exactly what they mean with no hidden meaning. Gillian has in the past placed lots of comments that got lots of thumbs down, I didn't see you mentioning her thumbs down, only ever her thumbs up, and now you place a comment which I think you know perfectly is not a very nice thing to do.
If you want to have a dig at someone then fine, just comment and have a dig, I do at Cllrs but I wouldn't do what you have done.

Telstar, the negativity about the workings of the BIP and its expenditure over the months has shown itself by way of thumbs down to anyone who indicates positivity in the actions of the BIP. Therefore it was in all probability you would receive thumbs down for your comment. In my mind anyone that posts something such as you have would be well aware it will almost certainly attract thumbs down for the named person and that you would know exactly what the outcome would be. Gillian has been subjected to derogatory and rude remarks in the past on this site, and to the best of my knowledge of reading, she always appears to remain dignified, people might not agree with her posts, I don't agree with some of them, but she seems genuine and never posts snide or cheap shot comments. I doubt for one moment Gillian would thumbs down your comment as she clearly supports the BIP.
