Wadebridge Town Councillors Emma Pate and Ian Welch joined the Camel CSA (Camel Community Supported Agriculture) team at Treraven Farm on Friday 6 January 2023 for their Wassail and orchard tree planting event. 🌳

Cornwall Councillor Martyn Alvey, Cabinet member for Environment and Climate Change planted the first tree in the new orchard – a Cornish Kea plum. A further 45 trees, including traditional Cornish varieties will be planted later in January by members and volunteers. 🌱

Wadebridge Town Council fully supports Camel CSA and wishes them well with their new orchard project. We would like to thank all of the members and volunteers for their commitment to the ongoing important work they undertake. 🌿

A big thank you also to Wadebridge Renewable Energy Network - WREN who administers the funding for Camel CSA. Others who have assisted with this project include; Clean Earth Energy, the Forest for Cornwall project and Cornwall Councillor Robin Moorcroft (Wadebridge West).

WREN will be holding a ‘Your Energy Transition’ day on 26 January 2023 in the Town Hall and we will be sharing details of that in a separate post.

Sunday saw the Christmas lights get taken down for safe storage until November. ⭐ 🎄

Wadebridge Town Council would like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved and all the hard work put in yesterday despite the weather.

A special big thank you to the following:

- Davey Electrical Services ltd

- All Volunteers

- John Young at The Granary in Wadebridge (for providing refreshments)

Without you all, our spectacular Christmas lights would not be possible. Also another big thank you and appreciation to Davey Electrical Services ltd team for attending to any failures and breakages. 🔨

Lastly, thank you to all residents and visitors to Wadebridge yesterday with your patience with any traffic disruption caused with the lights being taken down. 🚗

It was lovely to see the town lit up again and our community coming together to help make our town shine. ⭐

The day was finished with a well deserved drink for some of the team🍺

It is with great sadness that we report after 11 years as Town Councillor and, more recently, as our Mayor, that Amanda Pennington has resigned from the Council. Amanda joined the Town Council in September 2011 after the town called an election to fill 2 vacancies and became the Mayor in May 2021. Over the past 11 years Amanda has been part of many successful Council projects and has sat on a variety of working groups, giving lots of her time to her role as Town Councillor while managing her many other commitments.

Amanda served as a Town Councillor for the right reasons – to represent Wadebridge and to make the town a better place to live. She was always proud to support her town and never failed to speak up or step up on a variety of local issues. Amanda was Chair of the Planning Committee for several years and led the Council in considering many planning applications and always tried to engage the Community to look at planning proposals and encouraged them to comment and share their opinion.

Amanda was well respected by her fellow councillors and staff and, as someone who had the best interests of Wadebridge at heart, she will be sorely missed. We are extraordinarily grateful for all she has done for the Town, and as Councillor Pennington, we will miss her wise counsel, and true service to Wadebridge.
