Representatives from KEAP will be attending the panel to talk about their ‘Writers Block’ community education project which aims to help pupils to write more creatively and effectively.

Also on the agenda is a “Call to Action” – How well do you know your community’ presentation by Dr Matthew Whiteley and Richard Williams. The Call to Action is an exciting new community challenge which aims to raise the profile of the local community and voluntary sector in the CPIR Community Network Panel area.

Cornwall Councillor Ian Thomas, Chair of Camborne, Pool, Illogan and Redruth Community Network Panel, said: “Once again, our meeting will provide an opportunity for the exchange of information on matters which affect our local communities.  It is also an ideal opportunity for local residents and businesses, Members and Officers of the various Parish, Town and Cornwall Council and the media to engage with each other in a very transparent and sometimes lively way.”

The Camborne, Pool, Illogan and Redruth Community Network Panel meets quarterly to discuss matters that affect the local community and to agree priorities that can be delivered by Cornwall Council and other agencies including the police and health services. Some of the areas that community networks focus on include anti-social behaviour, economic development, the environment, community planning, regeneration, conservation, community safety, transport and highway issues.

The panel comprises all fourteen Cornwall Councillors for the area and representatives from the ten parishes in the Camborne, Redruth, Illogan and Pool Community Network - Camborne Pendarves, Camborne Roskear, Camborne Trelowarren, Camborne Treslothan, Camborne Treswithian, Carharrack, Gwennap and St Day, Four Lanes, Illogan, Lanner and Stithians, Mount Hawke and Portreath, Pool and Tehidy, Redruth Central, Redruth North and Redruth South.
