HEART Holding Community Meeting Tonight

Heart of Scilly's AGM

Heart of Scilly’s AGM

The Islands’ community group HEART is giving islanders a chance to discuss issues of concern tonight.

Committee member Fran Grottick says some questions have already been submitted for the debate. The on-going waste consultation and particularly proposals to dump at Pendrathen and Porth Wreck will feature in the public questions.

Islanders have also raised issues over school pupils’ access through Old Town, local government organisation and transport issues.

Fran tells Radio Scilly she’s pleased Councillors Marian Bennett and Dudley Mumford have agreed to sit on the panel because they have both been working on travel problems recently.

Other guests include Council vice-chair Amanda Martin and Councillors Roy Duncan and Gordon Bilsborough.

Fran says all islanders are welcome and she’d like attendees to come with an open mind.

The chairman Adrian Davis will ensure that contributions are positive and that there are no personal comments. Some recent events will also be off-limits for legal reasons.

Fran says the HEART session is intended to aid communication and help better understanding.

She says HEART wants to help anyone who would like to stand for Council in the May elections and hopes around 10 people will come forward including some younger candidates.

The group will act as an ‘enabler’ she says, assisting in the paperwork required to stand.

The Question Time-style event runs from 7pm to 9pm in the Town Hall this evening.
