See you in Saltash on Sunday

Keep Cornwall Whole has organised a “Respect the Tamar” Rally in Saltash for Sunday 10th October. It is hoped that the Rally will showcase the full extent of opposition to a creation of a Devonwall seat.

Convenor Cllr Adam Killeya, who is also the Mayor of Saltash, says:

“This Rally will strongly make the case against a cross-border constituency, with speeches from a wide range of political figures and civic figureheads. But there will also be music, making it a real celebration of Cornwall and its distinctiveness.

“Please come along and add your voice to the fight to protect Cornwall’s historic border.”

The Rally will take place at the Jubilee Green in Saltash at 2.00. It will be preceded by a symbolic crossing of the Tamar by a flotilla of boats between 1.00 and 2.00. Parking will be available at Alexandra Square (0.3 miles) or Upper or Lower Belle Vue (0.6m) Saltash, with a walk down the hill.

A number of speakers have been confirmed including the Chairman of Cornwall Council, the Grand Bard of the Cornish Gorseth and the Mayor of Saltash.

I hope you will be able to come along and help us put pressure on central government.
