PLANS to build a footpath which would link Penryn's Commercial Road with the town centre were due to go before Carrick planners last night.

If given the go ahead the path would run from the car park behind Permarin House on Commercial Road to New Street and up to the town centre.

The proposed path would run through Carrick-owned land which is currently overgrown with weeds, large bushes and trees. There would be a flight of steps linking the car park with this land.

MEMBERS of St Gluvias parish council are hoping the changes at county hall will help their case against the New Age travellers who have set up camp in a layby near Ponsanooth.

They are to seek a meeting with the new leaders of the authority following the elections last week.

They will also be contacting local county and district councillors Neil Plummer and Ted Spargo who will be asked to join the gathering.

CELTIC relations received a massive boost last weekend when two local villages paired up with their counterparts in the Finistere region of Brittany.

Constantine parish signed their portion of a twinning charter with Pont Croix on Saturday and Mabe Burnthouse completed their twinning arrangement with Primelin two days earlier.

With the Breton flag and the flag of St Piran flying over the Constantine Social Club, the twinning charter was first read out in four languages - English, French, Cornish and Breton - then signed by representatives of Pont Coix and Constantine twinning committees.
