During the meeting there will be a Community Chest celebration with presentations from local community groups who have received Community Chest grants including St Austell Day Care Centre, St Goran Church Parish Nurse Project, 4FS Youth Dance, Merlin MS Centre, 1st St Austell Scout Group, St Austell Library Support Association.

Parish, town and Cornwall councillors will give updates on local matters.  Cornwall Councillor Sandra Heyward, Chair of St Austell and Mevagissey Community Network Panel, said: “Everyone is welcome to come along and find out how the Community Chest scheme has been supporting community groups in the area. You'll be able to talk to your local councillors about the issues that matter to you."

St Austell and Mevagissey Community Network Panel meets every three months to discuss matters that affect the local area and to progress these by working in partnership with Cornwall Council and its partners, including town and parish councils, the voluntary and community sector, and the police and health services.  The panel’s priorities are annually reviewed at the AGM – in the past year these have included economic investment, anti-social behaviour, neighbourhood planning, health and well being and areas of deprivation.

St Austell and Mevagissey Community Network Panel includes all seven Cornwall Councillors for the area and representatives of the eight parish and town councils in the community network: Carlyon, Mevagissey, Pentewan Valley, St Austell, St Austell Bay, St Ewe, St Goran and St Mewan.

The agenda and more information about the panel are available on Cornwall Council's St Austell and Mevagissey Community Network page. The meeting is open to the public and everyone is welcome to attend.
