It is with great sadness that we heard the news that the first Mayor of Camborne, Councillor Jeff Wilson who served as Mayor from 2001 to 2002, passed away suddenly on Sunday 10th July 2016.

During his years of service Councillor Wilson showed tremendous dedication and commitment to improving the town of Camborne and the wider parish, setting an example for future Councillors to follow.

Anti-Social Behaviour – Camborne Town Centre

There have been some recent anecdotal reports to agencies of anti-social behaviour in and around the town. A local partnership meeting was called at the end of last week to discuss this. One thing that was noted is that reports to the police seem few in number. All calls to the police are logged and these logs can be used as evidence if any court action is taken - just the act of reporting incidents is valuable information even if the police do not attend. The partners agreed some actions to help address some of the issues and will liaise with each other over the summer months.
