Thursday 24th October,

Moresk Centre, St Clement Street, 2.30pm

Truro Civic Society is to begin holding regular meetings again. They will feature talks about topics of both general and, specifically, Truro interest. The first meeting will be at Moresk Centre (The Moresk Centre – A Community Space for Truro) opposite Old Bridge Street car park on Tuesday 24th October at 2.30pm. The speaker will be Malcolm Bell, newly retired Chief Executive of Visit Cornwall, and a native of Truro. His talk will be entitled:

‘Truro! My today – Our tomorrow!’

Drawing on his experience as a leading national figure in the tourism industry, and blending this with his passion for his home town, Malcolm will explore aspects of our current situation and suggest how we might act to move forward positively.

Before his talk there will be a very short General Meeting at which elections to Society offices will be held. This is as a result of long-standing Chairman, Bert Biscoe, standing down. Malcom Bell has agreed to accept nomination to take over as Chairman.

Mr Biscoe said:

‘Change is a good thing. Malcolm and I are very different people, although we share many things in common, not least our belief in shaping positive futures for Truro and Cornwall. It’s high time I went, and I am excited to see how Malcolm Bell invigorates the Civic Society. I look forward to his leadership.’

Malcolm Bell said:

‘We hope that this new chapter in the life of Truro Civic Society will encourage new members to join. People who come along on the 24th will have the opportunity to join if they wish, and to participate in the General Meeting and the future life of the Society. We look forward to you joining us.’
