Andrew George Outside St Just library

Andrew George, MP discusses impact of reduced opening hours with Friends of St Just Library co-chair, Kate Beckly

  • I want to see the Library Service come under more local control and the doors open more at the end of the year than they are now.
  • I want to see Nancherrow Youth club finding a way to provide sustainable services to our young people and the excellent music provision retained in the town.
  • I would like people in our many distinct communities to have a say on what needs preserving, what needs changing, where new homes are needed and what they should look like.
  • I want to see trade increase in our town, with coach passengers able to stop and spend their money, not just pass through between Penzance or Lands End and St Ives.
  • I want to see the Pioneer project thrive in our community bringing together health, adult care and other partners to do the best for people with health and social needs.
  • I hope that all community groups, with buildings, come to understand and prepare themselves for the increased costs coming their way in 2017/18 due to the reductions planned in discretionary business rates relief.
  • I’d like to see more people volunteering and enjoying our community farm at Bosavern; also buying from them at our Farmers’ Markets.
  • For the good of all our local children I want to see our schools working together to provide consistently excellent and sustainable  education; our children are our communities future.
  • I want to welcome new residents into the new homes built by Lands End Peninsula Community Land Trust in Pendeen.
  • I hope Andrew George is re-elected as our M.P. in May 2015.

Cornwall wide

  • Good foundations built for health and social care to integrate to provide better services to those in need in Cornwall, despite pressures on funding.
  • More powers devolved from Government to Cornwall so that decisions affecting people living in Cornwall are made locally and that money stays in our local economy.
  • No significant storm damage.
