Porthleven tourism leaflet knocks 'sadly lacking' town council

Falmouth Packet: Porthleven tourism leaflet knocks 'sadly lacking' town council Porthleven tourism leaflet knocks 'sadly lacking' town council

Porthleven Town Council has declared itself “disappointed” by a leaflet promoting the port that appears to knock the council.

The Discover Porthleven 2014 leaflet contains a map of Porthleven, photographs of the area and adverts from local businesses.

There is also a brief history of Porthleven, and it is in this that it mentions “the lack of administration and interest on the part of our council.”

It later goes on to comment on the recreation ground, known as The Moors, saying: “The current trustees, charged with looking after the land on behalf of the people, is the council, who appear to be sadly lacking in their administration.”

Speaking at the last meeting of the council, town member and Cornwall Councillor Andy Wallis raised the subject saying: “I’m very disappointed – this is sent out to many areas in Cornwall. For selling Porthleven, there’s no place for this.”

He added that in his opinion the words were “bordering on libellous.”

Mr Wallis suggested the council contact the publisher of the leaflet and ask them to recall all that have been distributed.

Mike Carter, a former parish councillor who is behind the leaflet, said his comments related to the ongoing attempts at trying to prove ownership of the land, claiming the council had been “dragging their feet” for the last two years.

He said this week: “If they’re upset, good, because perhaps they’ll get on and do something about it.

“It’s not there to upset them. It’s something I’ve been involved with for many years and all I’m trying to do is get it finalised. The town council should be reminded they don’t own that land. They are only trustees of it, on behalf of the people of Porthleven.”

Mr Carter believed such comments were appropriate in that type of publication, adding: “The holidaymakers say it’s good that somebody stands up and gets something done for the community. There’s no adverse effects coming back – in fact it’s the opposite.”

I think this is the wrong way to address an issue such as this, it might well be a bone of contention, however, the Porthleven guide is there to promote Porthleven in the same way the Helston guide and Mullion guide etc, promote their respective tourist destinations, I do not think a promotion guide is the place for such comments.

Rick Steins food is over priced and no better than a lot of others as far as I'm concerned.

If some bygone Town Cllr down in Porthleven wants to gripe at the current Porthleven TC why doesn't he go to their meetings or hand out notices in the town,,,, not stick it in a tourist guide,,,, that's just useless because the tourists don't give a ****, they're on holiday not living there. Bet he hasn't even asked any tourists what they think of the guide.

I have several of the guides, I usually give them to my visitors.

I believe it is completely untrue to say: "a sad reflection on the lack of administration and interest on the part of our council"

I do not believe the council is uninterested, neither do I think they are lacking in administration. There may well be a particular issue to resolve, but highlighting it in a guide which is basically aimed at tourists is not in my view helpful. I believe to promote a village or town and show it at its best, there needs to be a sense of continuity, loyalty and positivity. To display adverse negativity of any kind within tourism literature to me has no place.

Thank you telstar.

I think Helston should issue and distribute an up to date town guide on the same size scale as that of the Porthleven guide. I did suggest that to Helston Town Council quite a while ago and was told they were already thinking about something along those lines, however, nothing has materialised as yet.

I don't think any council takes any notice of public ideas do they? They all like to think the ideas came from them,,,Like the Helston regeneration, all those public meetings and all they seem to be doing is what can be delivered in a short timescale because most of the time allocated for the generators job has been used up with meetings.

As for Mike Carter saying in this article " if they're upset good" "it wasn't there to upset them" naive or what,,, does he really expect to put something like that about his town council in a tourism leaflet and expect them to not get upset",,,
If I was his town council I'd put out a leaflet criticising his photography and then issue a statement saying "it wasn't there to upset you" .

I'd be careful, rumour has it he's a bit andy with his fists. Or perhaps he'd like to sue me for saying he votes the wrong way.

I personally take no notice of rumours, and quite frankly I would say that is a most ridiculous thing to suggest. Councillor Andrew Wallis uses intelligence not violence with which to debate issues.

You can see in the article he 'thinks libel' thats out of order for a start.
He's not the only town Cllr, why does it have to be him complaining about the tourist brochure?

It would more likely be slander than libel I would have thought.

In answer to your question however, no not at all, I said it because it is completely true. If it was not true I would have said nothing at all.

It would more likely be slander than libel I would have thought.

In answer to your question however, no not at all, I said it because it is completely true. If it was not true I would have said nothing at all.
So if you got a rude email reply from Andy Wallis you would say nothing on here about it? Or report it?
I've heard from others they got rude replies from him and a Helston Cllr.

Andy Wallis is my Cornwall councillor in Porthleven, and cover Helston.

And Porthleven & Helston have suffered greatly because of it.

He is always ready to spout off about everything, and his actual results are zero.

I remember the much publicisised visit with our useless MP to see David Laws about Helston School.

Result.

School rebuilding planning permission withdrawn, and now no prospect of a dangerous block being rebuilt. He made a great fuss, but if he had actually done his job and not just gone for a PR stunt, the Cornwall Council would have been forced to face up to their responsibilities and rebuild Helston School. Instead he took the pressure off, and the result is zilch.

I have twice come into contact with Andy Wallis, and have to agree the comment above "I would say that is a most ridiculous thing to suggest. Councillor Andrew Wallis uses intelligence" is absolutely spot on. He was very threatening to me, and I feel had I been closer he would indeed have become very "handy". Such a shame, as it means Porthleven & Helston effectively have no intelligent representation on Cornwall Council, hence they are so neglected.

Ron, the level of criticism is irrelevant, I do not think it is right to include it in a tourist guide, where would you draw the line if everyone started raising all the issues they have with their local councils and publishing it in something which is distributed near and far for tourism purposes. For Councillor Andrew Wallis to say that he thinks it is boardering libellous is his opinion which he is entitled to. He is far from the only councillor to mention libel about something.

Councillor Andrew Wallis has produced many results as a councillor in Porthleven and Helston, hence the reason he had an overwhelming proportion of people vote him in again.
For you to suggest he would resort to violence is completely unfounded.
Additionally for 'Mark Porthleven' to suggest that I should be careful because I have disagreed in the past with an issue with Councillor Andrew Wallis and he is handy with his fists, is ridiculous. I do not believe he would hit me given the opportunity. Porthleven and Helston West are not neglected they are represented well.

I think this is all just cheap shots at Cllr. Wallis. As for the suggestion that he might hit someone given the chance, for previously disagreeing with him, I think that's just as low as you can get trying to get someone to be wary of him.
As for Ron, he's made digs at Cllr. Wallis at most opportunities on this website in the past, the same as he has about many of Helston Town Cllrs past and present.
Planning permission was only withdrawn because it has a timescale on it in which work has to begin, there is nothing stopping it being resubmitted should the money become available.
Why don't you take your complaints by email to Cllr. Wallis himself and the Chief Executive Officer at CC who is paid to be responsible for the finances, but then of course you'd have to give your real names. Easy to have cheap shots on here under names like Porthleven man.

As for Ron, he's made digs at Cllr. Wallis at most opportunities on this website in the past, the same as he has about many of Helston Town Cllrs past and present.
Planning permission was only withdrawn because it has a timescale on it in which work has to begin, there is nothing stopping it being resubmitted should the money become available.
Why don't you take your complaints by email to Cllr. Wallis himself and the Chief Executive Officer at CC who is paid to be responsible for the finances, but then of course you'd have to give your real names. Easy to have cheap shots on here under names like Porthleven man.
Well said i agree with you completely. As soon as Cllr Wallis is mentioned in any news item , then the rude and nasty comments start. I have emailed him in the past and always got a reply and those that continually have issues with him should contact him as you have already said.
Youre wrong because there's another news item with Andy Wallis mentioned on here today but it has no comments on it.
not yet you mean
Still no comment on the other news story!!!

Councillor Andrew Wallis has not had the tourist guides recalled anyway because they are still available.
You are so wrong, So where are they still available then? Because there's none in Porthleven?
I think you are so going to cop it from handy Andy for saying he hasn't had the tourist leaflets recalled, he doesn't like being contradicted, and if he hasn't had them recalled then where are they? because there is none in the port and we havent had that many visitors, it's only June?
There are some in 'The Cellar' charity shop and in Christopher's estate agents, I therefore assumed they had not been recalled.

Always best not to assume anything where handy Andy is concerned I think, didn't you say on one news item on here you went to the Helston council meetings, bad luck, so does he. I'm sure he'll be delighted with the fact you've contradicted him, because he has had the tourism leaflets recalled and you've clearly said on here he hasn't.

I remember the much publicisised visit with our useless MP to see David Laws about Helston School.

Result.

School rebuilding planning permission withdrawn, and now no prospect of a dangerous block being rebuilt. He made a great fuss, but if he had actually done his job and not just gone for a PR stunt, the Cornwall Council would have been forced to face up to their responsibilities and rebuild Helston School. Instead he took the pressure off, and the result is zilch.

I have twice come into contact with Andy Wallis, and have to agree the comment above "I would say that is a most ridiculous thing to suggest. Councillor Andrew Wallis uses intelligence" is absolutely spot on. He was very threatening to me, and I feel had I been closer he would indeed have become very "handy". Such a shame, as it means Porthleven & Helston effectively have no intelligent representation on Cornwall Council, hence they are so neglected.
Completely agree with you.

Well at least my comments stretch to a little more than "wow". Like yours on the other news item. I mean, "wow what?"

I tell it as it is, and when GZM realises she's wrong, they have been recalled, she can apologise on here. And handy Andy doesn't like being contradicted, Like Porthleven man says, I think he can be very threatening. She might be used to having a calm local councillor but I think she'll find handy Andy is different, I wouldn't want to cross him by contradicting him.

Councillor Andrew Wallis has not had the tourist guides recalled anyway because they are still available.
Don't you think you should apologise for this post? because it is clearly wrong, the tourist leaflets HAVE been recalled.
Good ol handy Andy will be chuffed when he thinks you're telling people they havn't been recalled when he's recalled them, havn't you read the post by Porthleven man?
And why on earth should someone apologise, you can't prove Cllr Wallis asked for the leaflets to be recalled? Doubt it somehow he even bothered. If they've been recalled then why is Gill saying on here there are still some available?
You've obviously no idea what handy Andy is like by the looks of it. I think you will find He HAS recalled them, just because there is some left in the shops she mentions doesn't mean they weren't recalled. So that makes her wrong and she should apologise on here.

I remember the much publicisised visit with our useless MP to see David Laws about Helston School.

Result.

School rebuilding planning permission withdrawn, and now no prospect of a dangerous block being rebuilt. He made a great fuss, but if he had actually done his job and not just gone for a PR stunt, the Cornwall Council would have been forced to face up to their responsibilities and rebuild Helston School. Instead he took the pressure off, and the result is zilch.

I have twice come into contact with Andy Wallis, and have to agree the comment above "I would say that is a most ridiculous thing to suggest. Councillor Andrew Wallis uses intelligence" is absolutely spot on. He was very threatening to me, and I feel had I been closer he would indeed have become very "handy". Such a shame, as it means Porthleven & Helston effectively have no intelligent representation on Cornwall Council, hence they are so neglected.
Youre talking a load of tosh, youre the one that posted on here before once and said Cllr Wallis hadnt been in the navy when he has, so i wouldnt take any notice of what you suggest about Cllr Wallis and threatning.

Councillor Andrew Wallis is, and always has been, a very good and effectual Cornwall Councillor for the areas in which he covers, additionally at county level. He has acheived many results, a lot of which can actually be seen in the local areas, he works hard for Porthleven and Helston West.
Mark Porthleven, Porthleven man, and Ron on various occasions, have displayed an apparent disapproval of him and his position, I therefore presume they have particular issues, which I believe they should all take up personally with him.

Councillor Andrew Wallis is one of the few Councillors that actually bothers to keep the public informed about things relating to Cornwall Council, which I believe is good for the openess and transparency policy within the council.
For anyone that fails to see or understand the effort involved in his position, and can only find fault, I suggest they stand for council themselves, that way they might at least gain a better insight into what is actually involved.

I have always found his email replies intelligently constructed and polite, and for anyone to suggest he would resort to violence, in my view, is just being vindictive.

Well done to GZM for having the sense to get the truth from Porthleven TC.

We won't expect 'Mark Porthleven' to have the decency to apologise then for telling her she was wrong on several posts? when it is clearly him that is wrong.

As for suggesting to her that Cllr Wallis will retaliate and suggesting he could resort to violence, to me that's just reflects 'Mark Porthleven' and 'porthleven mans' attitudes, because I think any man that would hit a woman is a coward, so to suggest he would makes me think Mark Porthleven and Porthleven man would condone it.

Yeah yeah yeah, if GZM wants to remain oblivious to the fact that handy Andy has a temper that's up to her but i think she'll find he doesn't like being disagreed with, and she complained about the carpark, now she's made first comment on this news item so it looks to me like she's incited trouble with him.

And John Helston probably hasn't realised but I actually work with him lol lol lol and I still think what he says on here is wrong because I'm the one that lives in Porthleven so I'm the one that knows what handy andy is like, and I wouldn't trust him not to hit GZM if she winds him up.

Wow, there are some awful comments on here - utterly reflective of the poster I'd say.

In my dealings with Cllr Wallis I have always been impressed with his professionalism, articulate and composed nature, and ability to express himself in a calm, constructive and intelligent fashion. So I have no idea who this 'handy andy' that 'Mark Porthleven' keeps referring to is.

Why assume that Katie is trying to stir it up as you put it, maybe she has only just found time to read the comments and reply.

Yeah of course meerkats, that's probably because she's been so busy telling us about her uni degree on the Helston rubbish news article.
I said she's stirring it up because all she's done is criticise me not left one word about the news item itself, and you're the one so quick to tell me remember what the article is about. Don't see you telling her to remember what the news article is about, pot kettle.
As for GZM if she takes any notice of Katie's comment I think she'll be mistaken when she finds out what handy Andys like if you annoy him or wind him up, like she did over the car park.

I am not always criticising you, thats an exaggeration, there I was minding my own business replying to Katie whose comment was directed at me, when up pops you and has a pop at me. The only person I have a problem with is Cllr Wallis. And by the looks of it by past comments on lots of different news items so does Porthleven man and ronedgcumbe and other people so I'm not alone, and I reckon when Cllr Wallis has a go at GZM for her complaint about the carpark she will then agree with us others, only a matter of time, I think he will catch up with her eventually and retaliate.
Why don't you stand for council meerkats.

Bad luck if you go to a council meeting. I heard he's already got the hump because you complained about the carpark.
Councillor Andrew Wallis is, and always has been, a very good and effectual Cornwall Councillor for the areas in which he covers, additionally at county level. He has acheived many results, a lot of which can actually be seen in the local areas, he works hard for Porthleven and Helston West.
Mark Porthleven, Porthleven man, and Ron on various occasions, have displayed an apparent disapproval of him and his position, I therefore presume they have particular issues, which I believe they should all take up personally with him.

Councillor Andrew Wallis is one of the few Councillors that actually bothers to keep the public informed about things relating to Cornwall Council, which I believe is good for the openess and transparency policy within the council.
For anyone that fails to see or understand the effort involved in his position, and can only find fault, I suggest they stand for council themselves, that way they might at least gain a better insight into what is actually involved.

I have always found his email replies intelligently constructed and polite, and for anyone to suggest he would resort to violence, in my view, is just being vindictive.
I bet you send disrespectful emails though, to him, I bet you're emails are always arrogant, because you know a Cllr would have to be polite back in their emails.

I would never send out any intentionally rude or disrespectful email to any councillor. The fact that councillors are supposed to abide by a code of conduct which includes being polite to members of the public, ie, not bringing their office into disrepute, is all the more reason I think the public should be polite. I think it would be terribly wrong for any member of the public to send out a rude or disrespectful email to a councillor knowing that the recipient is not supposed to respond in the same way.
