CORNWALL'S YOUNGEST COUNCILLOR (30 June 2016): 'Adam Doore, a student at Truro College, has been elected as Cornwall's youngest local councillor – possibly the youngest in the country. He is 18 years and 3 months old – barely old enough to vote – and stood as a Conservative Party candidate. He was elected unopposed onto Camelford Town Council. "Some of my friends do think it's a bit odd – many people my age are not really engaged in politics." ' ✫ღ⊰n
In 2010 Cornwall Council decided to stop funding Camelford Leisure Centre. A local campaign highlighted an appetite to keep the centre open and the council agreed to delay the closure while a local group developed an alternative business plan based on it being run by and for the local community. In December 2012 the operation transferred to the newly set up Camelford Leisure Centre Ltd and a ‘Friends of Camelford Leisure Centre’ was set up to raise awareness and organise fundraising.
