ANYONE wanting to help clear away the debris and rubbish that has swamped Penzance's promenade over the past few weeks will get a chance to do so on Sunday.

Volunteer Cornwall and Cornwall Council have arranged a St Piran's weekend promenade and beach clear-up starting at 11am on Sunday at the Jubilee Pool.

The day has been organised at the request of local Cornwall councillors.

Tim Dwelly, who represents the Penzance East ward, said: "It's great to see the cranes up and all the works already under way.

"We're all so grateful to Cormac, the police and fire service, workers from Network Rail and others for their hard work," Mr Dwelly said. "Now we want to do our own bit and help to clean up, even if this is a only a small part of the work that needs doing.

"As Cornwall councillors we're all working together to do all we can to ensure that Penzance and Newlyn get a fair share of storm damage funding, including the urgent repair and protection of Jubilee Pool.

"We're trying to at least get the pool café open this season and are holding talks tomorrow with the Cabinet member responsible for the pool, Adam Paynter, on plans for a major funding bid to secure the pool's future."
