There is still time to sign up and be part of a Question Time style event looking at the issues of today in Helston.

A panel of influential and well known people from the town will represent a broad spectrum of society when the event takes place this Wednesday, at the Central Methodist Church in Coinagehall Street.

They include Chamonix Newsam, representing the younger residents of the town, Helston and Lizard Foodbank co-ordinator Ruth McGurk, Martine Knight of Helston Museum and a Cornish bard, former MP Andrew George who is now director of the Cornwall Community Land Trust, chair of governors at Helston Community College Chris Webb and Gillian Geer, mayor and business owner in the town.

The panel, chaired by local businessman Bruce Taylor, will respond to a range of questions asked by residents in advanced, by visiting Hellys Tea Room in Meneage Street.

Organised by Helston resident Dave Potter, who is on the town council but is not acting in that capacity for this event, the evening will kick off at 7pm.

Anyone wishing to attend, either to ask a question or just as a spectator, is asked to put their name down on a list at Hellys Tea Room.
