First published in News

Helston town council are on the hunt for five people with specific skills to help deliver improvements to the town centre and to work with local councillors.

The town council has created a partnership group, the Helston Public Realm Project Board, to direct the development and deliver improvements.

The board was initially set up with four members, including two members from the town council, one member from Cornwall Council and the chair of the Helston Business Improvement Partnership.

It currently meets once every two months in the Guildhall, provides guidance to the project management team and makes recommendations to the town council.

The council is looking for five additional members to “broaden the partnership” and the board is particularly keen to attract local people with knowledge and expertise in urban design and landscape architecture, disability, young people, older people and crime and community safety.

To submit an expression of interest, detailing why you think you could add value to the board’s work, either write to Martin Searle, town centre regeneration officer, at The Guildhall, Helston TR13 8ST, or email regeneration@helstontc.com, by 5pm on Friday, January 31.

He can also be contacted by phone on 01326 558881.

I do not have any expertise in urban design or landscape architecture, I have limited disability awareness knowledge, I do however have years of experience of young people, older people and crime! (Not personal crime involvement myself I might add) unfortunately, qualifications are required rather than common sense, experience and commitment these days.

If they would like some immediate crime prevention advice, then I suggest they add more bolt fixings to some of the new benches, I have tried 11 out of 15 benches and found a few to be in my view, unsatisfactorily secured. Personally I would have had "Helston" inscribed on each bench for identification purposes. Cost cutting does not always pay off long term.
