St. Blazey Police Station to Close
Fowey Town Council has long valued receiving a monthly report from the police on events in the town either in person from our PCSO or when workloads are heavy by written report to our meetings. This process ensured a communication between us and provided an authoritative picture on local crime for residents. On more than one occasion these conversations threw up information enabling police enquiries to go fruitfully forward.
Government cuts to local authorities have now eaten into police resources to the extent that Officers may not be able to attend Fowey Town Council meetings or indeed to send in written reports.
Obviously the police can still be contacted regarding specific issues but it is disappointing that a useful link, which also allowed faces to be put to names encouraging a positive relationship, has been broken.
Recent crime information can be obtained by going to www.police.uk. Click on Crime Map and put in your postcode. This will bring up a map of our neighbourhood beat and will indicate what crimes have been committed and where right down to the relevant street. This is interesting and useful stuff, but it doesn’t quite offer a full substitute for the information we were getting.
All reports of non-999 crimes should continue to be reported in on 101.
Welcome to Fowey
Welcome to the Ancient Town and Port of Fowey which is situated on the south coast of Cornwall, at the mouth of the Fowey river about 20 miles west of Plymouth, and 5 miles east of St Austell.
With a population of around 1800, which swells during the summer months accommodating visitors, Fowey is a busy port exporting china clay all year round and welcoming cruise liners during the tourist season, as well as being a popular yachting harbour. In May the town is the backdrop for the Fowey Festival of Words and Music and in June you are invited to sample the excellent, locally grown mussels during the Fowey River Big Gig & BBQ (formerly the Mussel Fest). August heralds Fowey Royal Regatta which is always held in the third week of August and our Christmas Market weekend, held at the beginning of December, grows in popularity year on year.
In local government terms, Fowey is a civil parish with a town council and a Mayor. Besides the town, the parish includes the coastal area between the mouth of the River Fowey and St Austell Bay, including Gribben Head and the smaller settlements of Menabilly, Polkerris, Polmear and Newtown.
The parish of Fowey lies within the St Austell and Newquay constituency of the United Kingdom Parliament, and the South West England constituency of the European Parliament.
