Packet newspapers - OUT NOW!

A sneak peek of this week's Falmouth/Penryn and Helston Packets

In this week's Falmouth/Penryn Packet - out now!

The sole survivor of a car wreck caused by the horror smash in Penryn this week has paid tribute to his wife, who died in the crash.

Nigel Toy, aged 65, was a passenger in his friend’s BMW 3-series when it was struck by a tipper lorry at the junction of Brown’s Hill and the B3292 on Wednesday:

Managers with up to 20 years experience are under threat of redundancy from A&P.

The Packet has learnt that “seven or eight” area manager and technical manager positions at Falmouth Docks no longer exist.

Plans to develop fields on the outskirts of Falmouth, covering them with up to 300 houses, were described as “medieval pillaging” at a meeting where the outline scheme was approved.

Three people were treated for smoke inhalation following a fire in a conservatory at the rear of a house in Grenville Road, Falmouth, in the early hours of Monday morning.

Both Falmouth lifeboats and the rescue helicopter from Culdrose were in action on Friday evening searching for a “suicidal” missing person along the coast.

Emergency services went on to scour the countryside around Penryn for more than four hours before locating the wayward soul.

The director of Falmouth’s Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society has resigned, prompting concerns for the art centre’s future.

Charles Savage stood down from his post at the Poly last week, just nine months after first taking up the reigns.

Three fire engines and a water carrier were scrambled to a hut fire on Pendennis Headland at the weekend amid fears that somebody might be trapped inside.

Only after the blaze was extinguished could firefighters establish that no one was inside the structure:

MEANWHILE

In this week's Helston Packetout now!

The parents of a woman trampled by a cow that was protecting a young calf are hoping for a change in legislation to prevent a similar mishap befalling another family.

Tesco in Helston has applied to build a “customer collection pod” to allow its Click and Collect service to finally go ahead.

The churchyard of Helston’s parish church of St Michael’s is the latest area to be tackled by the Town Tidy Team.

Volunteers were out in force armed with a large supply of black plastic refuse sacks and wheelbarrows to rid the churchyard of moss and weeds, repaint chipped handrails and clear up litter.

Advertising could soon be on display in St Keverne’s public toilets in a bid to boost funds. 

The parish council is looking into giving local business the chance to promote themselves, in return for a fee.

Walking a route through Penrose Woods, children and their parents took to the footpath for a sponsored woodland walk in aid of Cancer Research UK recently.

The day proved a success and a "great way" to get the children involved with fundraising for the charity, a spokesperson said:

I always buy the Helston and Falmouth Packet, I just wish the crossword in each one was different. They still remain great value for money.

The preview is a great idea. I still buy the paper as it has a lot more than just what is in the preview. I have been buying it for donkey years so wont change now.

Dear oh dear, what is guests01's problem, a serial attention seeker maybe. Absolutely unintelligent and pathetic I think.

There we are dear, I've given you an attention fix.

I think the best thing we can all do is just ignore Guest01 - they seem to have a warped sense of humour which certainly doesn't appeal to me and you are spot on I believe that they seek attention - how sad and pathetic they must be!!

I think the only fool on here is guest01, another playground comment, "Everybody else is great though" is that, 'in other words', don't want to upset all of you or you might all ignore me, but I wont back down and admit that just for once my comment was wrong, because I am always right about everything all the time, i know it all and that shows in all my posts.

If everyone else is great why the previous comment that guest01 would pick fault deliberately in Gills comments and why pick fault in meerkats in the past. Such a hypocrite I think is guest01 who once made a big fuss telling someone it was wrong for them to want guest01 to stop commenting and now here they are telling someone else they shouldn't comment, but hey what does it matter it has achieved the desired affect and made guest01 centre of attention once again.
I agree with you victoriameldrew I think they they are sad and pathetic. Troll I think these days the term is.
Dear oh dear, what has poor Tyrone done to deserve this, is he this weeks attention seeking target or does he make comments that hit a raw nerve.
I hope guest01 is a student and will not permanently be in Falmouth.

You obviously have an issue with Tyrones comments (why ?) but dont think there's any reason to call him a fool. If you are trying to get a reaction from him , you may have a long wait , i think on a previous article he said he would not bother replying to you anymore.

Perhaps it is like the Bermuda Triangle, only instead of ships disappearing, comments reappear in the Packet Triangle.

There are three points to the triangle, the Falmouth angle, the Helston angle, and the commenters angle.

Apologies for the confusion, there seems to have been a technical glitch with the comments on this week's sneak preview.

Normal service will be resumed from next Tuesday!

Ah, but the next question is what actually constitutes normal? When I asked my Doctor if I was mentally normal he said "what is normal, what might be normal to one person is not necessarily normal to another"
They are probably just short of psychiatrists locally.
