Town Councillor Daisy Gibbs receives Civic Award from Chairman of Cornwall Council Hilary Frank

Posted on: 13th October 2020 |

The Cornwall Civic Award CrestDaisy Gibbs has thrown herself into our local community from birth! Whether performing in the local pantomime or taking her place on the streets of St Just during the annual Lafrowda Festival, more recently being a member of the organising committee.

On her 30th birthday, in 2018, she had her head publicly shaved, raising £7,000 for Penhaligans friends. She also donated her hair to make wigs for children undergoing cancer treatments.

She is a fundraiser to replace St Just Skate Park and is known locally as an environmentalist. She was involved with St Just becoming plastic free and recently set up a monthly Care and Repair café.

She is an active member of Extinction Rebellion, taking part in action in London, striving towards a sustainable lifestyle off grid and helping others in the community make changes in their lives.

Her goal, from her election leaflet: “To support and encourage young people to be more involved in our community and also help St Just and Pendeen become self-sustaining towns. I really believe in helping each other and working together and that isn’t hard to realise in this, the most fantastic of communities.”

Daisy is an inspiration to other young women to be active community members and perhaps stand for election. In these unprecedented times she set up a network of wardens (around 100) to ensure every street has a contact if they need help. She achieved this as we went into lockdown. Her name is Daisy so it was called our Daisy Chain network. She has also become Chair of the Voluntary Committee responsible for the Nancherrow Youth Centre and project.

The removal of free TV licences for the over-75s

Posted on: 4th August 2020 |

There is much concern locally and nationally about the removal of free TV licences for the over-75s, which came into effect on 1st August, despite a major campaign by Age UK and other organisations. The first step towards helping some of those affected by this is to encourage all over-75s to apply for Pension Credit, as this would enable free TV licences as well as an increased income.
