RESIDENTS of Launceston have been without their leisure centre for several weeks and months as they wait to see what happens, but today the service is back as they prepare to restart under new management. Read all about it in this week’s Post Series.

Elsewhere around the town, we hear from seven-year-old Harvey Relf after winning an exciting prize for his storytelling abilities, while we also hear from local councillors and important members of the town as keys to six properties at the Hay Common development are transferred to Cornwall Council.

We also check in with Launceston Community Market who have made a donation to Moorvision, a group that helps young people who suffer problems with their eyesight, while there is delight for two photographers including a ‘Royal’ award for Mark Theisinger.

Up in Bude, there’s the latest on the quest to raise enough money for Jayden Henry-Poole’s new Hero Arm as they receive a £5,000 donation from a local charity, while residents react to temporary lighting more akin to the M5 and witnesses are sought for a hit-and-run.

There’s a preview of the North Cornwall Dance Festival that takes place this week, while Rosie’s Cafe in Bude, which was recently damaged in a fire, have stated their intention to re-open by mid-March.

Over in Holsworthy, the Rotary are seeking nominations for the President’s Awards, while we also have the latest Westminster column from North Cornwall MP, Scott Mann.

On a more sombre note, we hear from the mother of Ryan Saltern, who was killed in a hit-and-run back in July 2019, who is to do a skydive for charity later this year.

Cornwall’s Devolution Deal is one of the big talking points around the Duchy at the moment, and there’s the latest from Richard Whitehouse on the Deal which sees its consultation end this week.

As ever there’s the latest community news from around the towns and villages including a new president at Coad’s Green WI, while the schools were busy in the final week before half-term.
