Early Success!

10 March 2021

Congratulations to Kirsty Arthur, Joan Beveridge and Steve Hynes, who have all been elected, unopposed, to St Ives Town Council, Nastassia Player, who has been elected unopposed, to St Erth Parish Council and to Gareth Looker who has has been elected, unopposed, to Helston Town Council.
It’s fantastic news that we already have so many people already in place. And Kirsty can sigh in relief as she is now firmly established as Mayor Elect in St Ives. She now gets to meet Joe Biden this summer!

Still got a mountain to climb! So if you want to join us campaigning, when we resume on Tuesday, get in touch with Pat Hammond –

There’s still so much you can do to help – DO GET INVOLVED

Thank you so much for standing up for your communities … and getting through all the paperwork!

Meet our Candidates

In the St Ives Constituency area we need a little help to get there.
If you want to volunteer please look at our Campaigns Page and get in touch with Pat Hammond our Campaign Coordinator.

If you don’t have the time, or it’s not your thing, please consider just giving us some cash to help fight for what we all believe in.

Donate now or buy a mug or two.

“It is so good to see that the St Ives CLP is bringing in reinforcements to bolster-up what was our small, but wonderfully successful and knowledgeable team, of really superb Local Politicians.

The future opportunities and the happiness of the old (like me) the Mums and Dads and all the Children will continue to be a prime consideration for our Labour Politicians.

Our Labour Team will raise the quality and extend the breadth of everyday experiences and add considerable aesthetic and financial security for all those living and working in our most beautiful County.

Out will go humdrum and worry and in will come excitement, opportunities, satisfaction and happiness.

Thank you all so much for picking-up this challenge on our collective behalf.”

Harry Lees – member in Mullion & St Keverne and our amazing TULO

Nastassia is a great candidate for Long Rock, Marazion and St Erth, rooted as she is in the local community, and it's fantastic that she's been re-elected (unopposed) to St Erth Parish Council.

Out leafleting on the Penbeagle Estate this morning and got to see the Firefighters at St Ives Community Fire Station doing a training exercise. Lots of shouting of numbers and carting big, heavy ladders around. All very impressive!

Labour Cornwall Councillors

Cornwall Budget Day

February 23rd was Annual Budget Day for Cornwall Council.

Labour Councillors, Stephen Barnes, Dorothy Kirk, Jayne Kirkam and our own Cornelius Olivier, decided to vote against the Council Budget Plan for 2021-22, including a 5% rise in Council Tax.

“We are well aware of how badly Councils have been let down by government and we don’t disagree with everything the Lib-Dem?Independent controlled Administration has done or are trying to do. Far from it. But.
We don’t think they are doing enough or doing things in the right way and they need to listen to constructive criticism.”
