Council Reshuffles Roles Follow Resignation

town hall 11There have been some changes to Council appointments following the resignation of Cllr David Pearson.

He’s leaving the islands this month for a new life in Somerset.

Cllr Avril Mumford has been appointed to take on David’s old role as Lead Member for Children.

That’s the person in the Authority who’s responsible for ensuring that children’s welfare and safeguarding is highlighted.

Avril had been shadowing David for several months to ensure she understood what the role involved.

Cllr Fran Grottick, a former nurse and care worker, has been appointed as the new representative of the Council on the Cornwall NHS Foundation Trust.

Newly-elected councillor Ted Moulson will take up vacant seats on the Children and Young People and Health Overview and Scrutiny Committees, Children’s Trust Board and Planning and Development.

Cllr Christine Savill said David would “be leaving with his head held high” after creating a very good legacy at the Council, including excellent Ofsted inspections for Children’s Services.
