I’m delighted to announce that I am standing for election in the Camborne Treswithian ward for Cornwall Council, Polling Day is May 4th. This ward covers Weeth, Kehelland, Treswithian and Camborne School areas of Camborne, so if that’s where you live, expect to see me or one of my team calling around very soon to listen to your views. In the meantime, do get in touch via social media or the contact me buttons.
Polling Day is Thursday, August 20th for the 2 vacant seats on Camborne Town Council, as veteran Lib Dem Councillors Tony Bunce and John Pope have stepped down.
Camborne Liberal Democrats are fielding two excellent candidates:
Camborne North: Hayley Waller, a local businesswoman who runs a shop in Trelowarren Street
Camborne South: Steve Leverton, a local postal worker with Royal Mail
As the current youngest member of the town council, I would be pleased to see Hayley and Steve join the team and make the council more representative of the community that it serves.
Despite their youth and full-time jobs, Hayley and Steve already make time for their communities, Hayley as spokeswoman for Kr8tive Kids and Steve taking an interest in the recent Save Trevu campaign. Hayley is also the Camborne Lib Dem branch treasurer, and Steve the Camborne Youth and Students Co-ordinator.
I would encourage you to cast your votes for two talented candidates who have their roots and visions firmly Camborne-centred come next Thursday.
Cllr Anna Pascoe
Chair, Camborne Liberal Democrats
With under a month to go until the judging for Camborne’s Britain in Bloom entry 2009, the final preparations are being made for the showcase day on Friday July 17th.
At the Camborne in Bloom meeting last week, the final route was confirmed, taking in residents’ gardens as well as established sites such as Kehelland Horticultural Centre and Tuckingmill Valley Park, amongst others.
New for this year will be banners at the gateway to the town, advertising our entry, and there will be a feature about the event in the West Briton too.
So much work goes on preparing for this event and last year the Silver Gilt Award was richly deserved. Hot on the heels of the Clean Britain award, let’s hope we can do even better this year.
Anyone having any information on the idiots who vandalised the large potted display near the Wesley Street pelican crossing please let me know and I will pass this on in confidence to the relevant authorities.
I attended the Camborne Regeneration Forum meeting on Tuesday, June 1st. For those who aren’t familiar with the organisation, the forum consists of local partner organisations such as the Town Council, the Chamber of Commerce, the school, the Regeneration Company and local representatives of the community.
It was the AGM and it was great to hear about all the hard work the Forum has been doing over the last year. . Although not the Town Council official representative on the Forum, I look forward to supporting their work as much as possible over the forthcoming civic year.
With just over 2 weeks to go, the campaign is getting really busy. Big thanks to those who have already helped me with enevelope stuffing, leaflet delivery, and the most important thing of all, getting out on the doorstep and speaking to people.
Lots of issues have been raised already and I am currently working on parking and transport issues and dealing with anti-social behaviour with the relevant officers at Cornwall Council on your behalf.
If anyone feels they can lend a hand over the next fortnight, I’d really appreciate it. Your help can support a local girl born and bred in Camborne doing her bit for the community.
The nominations have now been published for the Cornwall Council elections and with just under 4 weeks to go the campaign is really hotting up!
I have now delivered over 7,000 pieces of literature to local residents, letting you know a bit more about me, how to contact me if you’d like me to sort out a problem and my priorities for Camborne.
By the end of this weekend I will have knocked on every door in the ward once and then it will be time to start all over again getting to know you and your wants and needs for the area.
If you’d like to get involved simply get in touch using the contact details on the right of the screen – there is a range of things you can do to help out, from envelope stuffing to leaflet delivery. If you have any skills which you’d like to contribute I am open to ideas and I am also happy to train people up in areas they may be inexperienced in, such as computer work, doorknocking and telephone campaigning. If you are jobhunting or looking for a career change, or want some assistance with developing your confidence, an election campaign is a great way to build up your skills in a short space of time and I would be pleased to supply a reference for anyone who volunteers for the Camborne South campaign.
Thanks and I look forward to knocking on your door or hearing from you very soon,
Anna and the Lib Dem team were out meeting residents throughout the Bank Holiday weekend. All in all over 1,100 doors were knocked on!
Lots of issues were raised for Anna to tackle over the coming weeks, including the following:
Speeding in the Pendarves area
Tesco’s selling policies in the Tregenna Lane area
Flytipping in the town centre area
Littering and civic pride in the Mount Pleasant area
Untidy hedgerows in the Barripper area
Flooding and littering in the Penponds area
Healthcare in the Redbrooke Road area
You can report any other issues for Anna to deal with using the buttons on the left-hand side of the screen.
I have started a new Facebook group to campaign and get things done in the community of Camborne South. This includes Penponds, Barripper, Pendarves/Killivose and parts of mid Camborne – if you care about what goes on in these areas then search for “Team 4 Camborne South” when you’re next on Facebook and join in the project. Don’t forget to add me as a friend while you’re there!
