It’s Carnival Time!

Callington Carnival is on Saturday 1st July this year so come along and have some fun.  If you’re not taking part in the procession, don’t miss out on the chance to support this event by coming along to Fore Street to see the parade pass through the Town or following it along the route.  There will be street entertainment in Fore Street from 4.00pm so come along and join in the party atmosphere.

This year it is hoped that interesting vehicles will join in the procession this year and an invitation has gone out to all owners of classic cars, vintage agricultural vehicles and military vehicles to take part.  You might even see a penny farthing and other such forms of transport taking part.   If you own such a vehicle,  then it may not be too late to enter, pick up an entry form for the Town Hall in Callington and give it an airing!  If you would like any further details,  give Rick Lumley a call on 07866 152 455.  Walking entries are always welcome and can be made right up until the day itself.   Entry is FREE so there is no excuse.

Hustings – June 2017

Callington Town Hall

Saturday 3rd June 2.30 pm


As at previous elections, the Callington Town Forum is arranging a public meeting so you might put testing questions to the candidates in the 2017 general election.

The hustings will take the style of “Question Time”.

At the time of going to press not all the candidates are known but it is anticipated that all the major players for the Cornwall South-East constituency will want to take part.  If you want to ask a question you can either arrive in good time at the Town Hall or send it by e-mail to the address below.

There is no guarantee that a submitted question will be asked. If your question is selected you will be called on to ask it in person.
