by Jeremy Rowe on 22 June, 2010

This afternoon I attended a meeting of the Church of England’s Diocesan Board of Education at Kenwyn in Truro to have a discussion about the future of St Tudy School. When I arrived I found a group of people gathered around the table who were more than prepared to listen to what I had to […]

by Jeremy Rowe on 19 May, 2010

Cornwall Council’s Cabinet has today given the green light for a new school at St Tudy. There are still many potential pitfalls ahead, but at least there is no longer any doubt where the Council stands. The Cabinet Member for Children’s Services, Independent Councillor Neil Burden, moved the recommendations at this morning’s meeting which provide […]

Decision Time on St Tudy School

by Jeremy Rowe on 18 May, 2010

Tomorrow Cornwall Council’s Cabinet will make a decision on whether to proceed with a new school for St Tudy. It has been a long and arduous road to reach this point, and the fact that this issue is still under consideration is in no small part due to the work of the St Tudy & […]

One Chance for Change

by Jeremy Rowe on 25 April, 2010

More than any other, this election has been the one in which the candidates have all talked about change. But what are the political parties really offering? Labour have the hardest job trying to sell the idea of ‘change’ to a weary electorate. Gordon Brown looks to have run out of steam, and their position […]

by Jeremy Rowe on 25 March, 2010

As I previously posted, today saw the scheduled meeting of the Children’s Committee at County Hall which had, as its main agenda item, a discussion around the future of St Tudy School.

Education Transport Appeals

by Jeremy Rowe on 1 March, 2010

Today I’ve attended the monthly meeting of the Education Transport Appeals Panel, of which I am Vice Chairman. Whenever I mention this to anyone their eyes glaze over and they immediately assume that it must be the most dreary piece of work a councillor could possibly be involved in. Believe it or not, the reverse […]

What the Americans left behind at St Eval

by Jeremy Rowe on 17 December, 2009

Earlier today I was lucky enough to be shown around the facilities at St Eval which were purpose-built for the American forces who had been stationed there until quite recently. It was quite extraordinary and left me reflecting on the different approaches adopted by the British and US governments to providing facilities to the armed […]

Council fails to rule out fortnightly rubbish collections

by Jeremy Rowe on 16 December, 2009

As I posted here a couple of days ago, Cornwall Council’s Draft Budget Proposal was discussed at Cabinet today and included a mere line or two about proposals to move to fortnightly rubbish collections in the east and west of the Duchy (including North Cornwall). The Lib Dem Group Leader, Doris Ansari, was the first […]

At Full Council this morning I asked the Cabinet Member for Children, Conservative Sally Bain, if she welcomed the result of the recent referendum held in St Mabyn and St Tudy. (You may remember that 97.3% of the residents of both villages voted to keep their schools within the villages.) You might think that this would […]
