Falmouth town councillors this week awarded £950 in grants to three local organisations.

The Falmouth and Penryn Sea Cadets are to receive £200 towards the £1,000 cost of equipment to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme. £250 will go towards the cost of five silk flags for use by primary schools in parades, such as the Oyster Festival.

The City of Truro Pipes and Drums, which performs at local events, is to get £500 for new equipment.
