Truro Olympic Torch Civic Event

The Chairman of Cornwall Council, Pat Harvey is well aware many people will have difficulties in seeing or attending events connected with the Olympic Torch due to the issue of the torch quickly passing though a limited number of towns and villages in Cornwall on the 19 May 2012.

To celebrate this, the Chairman will be hosting a Civic Event at Truro Cathedral; which will be a free event to all invitees. In a letter to all Cornwall Councillors, the Chairman, asks for nominations to attend this event. In that letter, the Chairman says:

I would like to open the Civic Event up to those who would not normally have the opportunity to attend such events. I am therefore asking all 123 Members to send in nominations. Please could you nominate members of your community that you believe deserve the opportunity to attend this event. I am not restricting the number of nominations, but should we exceed expected numbers, all names will be sorted by constituency and put in to a hat to be drawn at random.

Please send all nominations to Kate Varcoe ( The closing date for nominations is Monday 26 March 2012. It is very important that all nominations are received by this date as the deadline will not be extended.

Please include the following information with every nomination:

Name, address, contact number, reason for nomination, dietary requirements – please give details and any hearing or sight difficulty or mobility issues – please give details

You can either nominate people directly, or contact me and I will make sure those nominations are passed-on.
