Cornwall Council : Cllr J Rowe updated the meeting on the situations concerning both St Mabyn and St Tudy schools and the current situation of both pre-school groups.  The Council were fully aware of the poor road conditions and the many potholes that remained un-repaired.

Councillors discussed the provision of grit bins and their usage by the public.  Cllr Rowe also discussed recent newspaper reports relating to the sending of messages during Cornwall Council meetings, and that he had apologised to the Chairman, Cllr Mrs Harvey.  It was a good means of communication and was permitted, but should be respected.
