Remembrance Sunday 2022

Posted on: 13th November 2022 | by Sue James | Posted in From the Mayor

Remembrance Sunday 2022, had extra poignancy to many as The Queen was no longer with us to lead the proceedings in London and through our TV screens. For me it is another of those 1sts without my dad, although I know December will be the big one when he will not be at the ChristmasRead More »

Posted on: 1st November 2022 | by Sue James | Posted in From the Mayor

I had hope to have some news for you as a consolation for the fact the bid from St Just Town Council with local partners to run this facility, for the young people of Cornwall, was unsuccessful. We still wait news of who did successfully bid for it and what their plans might be. IRead More »

Posted on: 23rd September 2022 | by Sue James | Posted in From the Mayor

Mayor’s Sunday re-scheduled to January 22nd, so get the date in your diary, especially if you represent a local community organisation.

Posted on: 20th September 2022 | by Sue James | Posted in From the Mayor

“Our Resilient, Creative and Independent Town of St Just”, came in as the headline to a piece in the press about our wonderful Town. I will confess, every time Daisy and I was asked in different ways to describe our Town, those were my key words! The Headline also picked up the other key messageRead More »

Mayor’s Sunday 18 September 2022 – POSTPONED

Posted on: 4th August 2022 | by Sue James | Posted in From the Mayor

UPDATE 11 SEPTEMBER 2022: In light of the death of The Queen, the decision has been made that Mayor’s Sunday cannot proceed. Discussions are ongoing about when it can fit into the Church and Civic Calendar but it might be delayed until 2023. My biggest regret is that I had wanted to help 2 ofRead More »

What About Mayor’s Sunday 2022?

Posted on: 2nd July 2022 | by Sue James | Posted in From the Mayor

What About Mayor’s Sunday 2022? Well that is a question I’m asking myself! Last year I did it a bit different, holding a Community rather than a Civic Event. Whilst I got lots of positive feedback, there were a few grumbles. So, I’m posting it here so there is time to influence BUT I’m sortRead More »
