It was disappointing that there were no town fireworks last night to welcome in what we all hope will be a better year. A few rockets and bangs would have been just the thing to raise morale at this time.

Why was this? Is it that the Council is broke? If so may I make a suggestion. Mr Mayor or your Town Manager, set up a fund “Falmouth Fireworks” that we can all subscribe to so that in future New Year and other events such as the Diamond Jubilee coming up can be celebrated by something we have all contributed to, and the skies over Our lovely harbour will not remain dark.
