1. Report Back

    A merry whirl of activity and events. From Meadow Fair and judging cakes in Darite to watching the sun come up on Solstice morning  from Rillaton Barrow life has been very full lately. Add to this the daily round of a councillor and planning the Charter Fair in Liskeard on...
  2. On a roundabout

    Thats what life seems like sometimes especially the way meetings come round each month and there is little opportunity to step off. I enjoy going to the villages and hamlets and talking to the people there. The social events are invariably great entertainment and if we meet at one please...
  3. Light at the end……….

    ……or is it an oncoming train? Having successfully handed over the KCCG Locality Group work to Nigel May, who was elected to chair the Umbrella Group and to sit on Locality I am sure that this work will now continue with a new figure at the helm and will go...

  6. New Year Old Issues

    The parish of St Cleer and particularly Darite are having very real problems with inconsiderate dog owners who do not pick up after their animals, or leave them to roam and foul at will. Others have the disgusting habit of hanging the bags in trees and hedges when they do...
  7. Another year flown

    Yes it has been a busy and interesting year. Council meetings have finished for 2013 but Jnauary 2014 is looking very busy already. The real chance to influence CC is within the structures of the Portfolio Advisory Committees but unless one wishes to spend all of every day in Truro...

    I still have some Funds available for Community Groups who wish to start a project or event. Unlike previous years we are not allowed to carry forward this funding. If you wish to apply please contact tperry@cornwall.gov.uk for an application form
  9. Work continues but changes

    I have had an extremely busy month since I last posted on this website. I have been elected to the Chair of St Cleer Parish Council. I have taken part in a very intensive two day Select Committee hearing into the Cornwall Council budget process with its attendant pre-meetings. The...
