Schiller Shelter Petition Opened

porthcressa schiller shelterA petition against the new Porthcressa Schiller Shelter being used as the Tourist Information Centre has opened for signatures.

It’s on the windowsill at Sheila Thomas’ home, Auriga, on Porthcressa Road and there are more forms at the Old Town Stores.

Sheila wants the TIC moved out of the new building and into the Town Hall reception area. She claims that yesterday, visitors had nowhere to shelter from the rain after 5.30pm when the shelter was locked, as the information centre closed for the evening.

She’s offered to lock the shelter herself, later in the evening, so people can use it until 9pm.

Chief Planner Craig Dryden says there was a consultation over the move and the switch from the Steamship Company offices will save £15,000 each year.
