New mayor of Helston Mike Thomas is to start “occasional country walks” with constituents to give an informal way of sharing ideas and views - and will hold the first this Sunday. 

He will walk from the fairground car park to the cafe at Penrose from 2pm and has offered an open invitation to anyone that wants to join him.

Mr Thomas said: “As with previous mayors it will be my intention to make myself available to members of the public to share their views.”

Details of future walks will be announced in due course.
