The government has announced that four towns in Cornwall – Penzance, St Ives, Camborne and Truro – will receive a share of its £3.6bn Towns Fund.

However, some people were surprised, because two of these places were not on the list of needy towns prepared by Cornwall Council.

Councillor Jayne Kirkham said, “There are other towns in Cornwall that are more in need than some of these. This was a political choice. It wasn’t based on need.”

The government said that the purpose of the fund was “to help towns build prosperity”.

A Cornwall councillor has asked if the new bridge at Tintagel Castle is doing more harm than good to the historic site.

Bert Biscoe, independent councillor for Truro Boscawen, said the new bridge was “a beautiful thing”. But, he said, it had caused the site to become too popular, and therefore had put it at risk of damage.

The new £4m bridge was opened by English Heritage last month.

Councillor Biscoe said he was concerned about the large crowds of people who were going to the island to take photos in front of the statue there, and their effect on the archaeology and on the natural environment.

English Heritage said the new bridge had recreated an historic crossing.

After years of pressure from families, charities, and mental health professionals, the first mental health unit for children and young people in Cornwall has opened in Bodmin.

Now the unit, called Sowenna, is receiving its first patients.

Sowenna cost £11m. It will provide 14 beds for young people under 18.

More than £80,000 has been collected on behalf of the unit by the Invictus Trust, a small Cornish charity that supports local teenagers with poor mental health.

One mother has a daughter who is currently staying in a hospital more than 100 miles from her home. She hopes that her daughter may be transferred to Sowenna in the future.
