The new website of St Just-in-Penwith Town Council was officially launched on Thursday 20 February 2014. Elaine Baker, Town Clerk said “The Council hopes that everyone visiting the site will like the new look, find it easier to use and the information helpful. We would also welcome feedback so that further improvements can be made to the site in the future.”
At an Extraordinary Meeting of the Town Council held last night, Town Councillors unanimously agreed to co-opt Brian Clemens, Fiona Cock and David Roberts onto the Council to fill the three remaining seats which had remained unfilled since the local elections in May 2013.
Brian Clemens lives in Pendeen and runs a local business in St Just: Fiona Cock lives in Grumbla but has strong connections with St Just. A retired teacher, Fiona is former head of Nancealverne School, Penzance. David Roberts, a resident of St Just whose family runs a local business.
All three will take up their seats immediately and will be attending their first meeting on 27 January.
Please note that there will be a mandatory live emergency exercise at Land’s End Airport on Wednesday 13th November 2013. This will commence at approximately 1000 hours and will involve a simulated aircraft incident. Outside emergency services will attend the incident and this will involve an area not actually on the airfield, but to the north of the site.
Please do not be alarmed at the site of flashing lights etc. in the vicinity. It is estimated that the exercise will finish approximately 1630 hours.

Led by the Work Skills Training Academy of Cornwall College, a Partnership project is looking to businesses and community projects in St Just and Pendeen to join them in improving the employment skills of those affected by long term unemployment. The project is ambitious in looking to train people in the skills required by local businesses and provide people with meaningful qualifications locally. Some people might start with voluntary work but could end up with the skills to start their own business and employ others! (more…)
