FALMOUTH GREEN CORRIDOR FORUM LAUNCHES NEW WEBSITE

The Falmouth Green Corridor Forum (FGCF) has announced the launch of its new website which may be accessed at https://falmouthgreencorridor.org.uk/

The FGCF is a community volunteer group formed last year to conserve, enhance and promote the woodlands, habitats, ecosystem and green spaces which border the Bickland Stream as it flows from its source at Kergilliack to its outlet at Swanpool Beach.

Spirit of Falmouth Award

The Mayor, Councillor Steve Eva, presented the 2019/20 Spirit of Falmouth Award to Tony Hallam and Lynn Newsham for their work with Boscawen Fields Action Group where they co-ordinate the volunteers who meet every month to maintain Boscawen Fields.

Town Mayor announces his charity for 2020/21

Each year Falmouth's Town Mayor chooses a charity to support and this year following his election to serve for a second year in office Town Mayor Councillor Steve Eva called on local charities to nominate themselves for financial support. It was identified that this year would be particularly challenging for local charities to raise funds during the Covid19 Pandemic and as a result the Town Mayor decided nominations would help him to decide which local cause he could make a real difference to during this difficult time.

New Flag for Falmouth Cemetery

Local resident Gary Brooks-Adams and his wife Kim have been taking their daily lockdown exercise in Falmouth Cemetery which they have found very peaceful. During their walks they noticed that the flag being flown in the War Graves section was looking a bit tired and very kindly offered to donate a new flag. The Mayor, Councillor Steve Eva, met with Mr Brooks-Adams to hoist the new flag and to thank him and his wife for their kind and thoughtful donation.

Dear Resident

Just like you all, the Council have found itself having to adapt and do things differently over the last few months. I want to update you on the next stage of re-opening our services.

We are pleased to announce that the Information Services will be re-opening from the 6th July 2020 with revised opening hours of 10.00 - 16.00 - Monday to Friday.

We will be open for recycling containment collection, signposting, and referrals only. Unfortunately for the safety of our customers & staff we will not be able to take any form of payments although we can direct you to your nearest Pay Point (listed below).

Re-Opening of Play Areas

The Council, in line with government advice, will be re-opening it’s play areas. Kimberley Park play area will be open from Saturday 4th July (the tree house will remain closed), the Bowly and Trescobeas from Monday 6th July. Users of these play areas and their parents will be asked to give each other room, observe social distancing guidelines, follow the routes and keep their hands cleaned. Please also dispose of your rubbish sensibly.

Tribute to Dame Vera Lynn

The Mayor Councillor Steve Eva has paid tribute to Dame Vera Lynn who passed away today aged 103.

Councillor Eva said ‘As an ex-serviceman I am very sad to hear of the death of Dame Vera Lynn who held a special place in the hearts of all servicemen, past and present, young and old. I had the privilege to meet Dame Vera in 1977 whilst serving in the Royal Navy and her songs are as poignant now as they were during the 1940’s. May the Forces Sweetheart rest in peace’.
