Red Tape Kills Off Trevithick Day Bunting

Camborne's Trevithick Day is being hit by red tape.

Organisers say there will not be any bunting this year, after being told they would have to get a licence.

That would mean volunteers noting down the serial number of every lamppost and getting written permission from shop and home owners. They say that is impossible, since many rent the buildings out and do not live locally. You can see the form that organisers have been given by the council here.

Instead they have taken the decision not to put up the flags on 28th April.

Shoppers in the town told Pirate FM, "I think it's sad, next thing it'll be no Christmas decorations."; "I think it's a crazy idea - it's part of Trevithick day."

The Council's website says, "Banners, buntings and seasonal lights are often erected to enhance the atmosphere of special events. Their use decorates the streets and adds to the ambience. However, poor choice of location or mountings can create a real danger to highway users as can setting them up without taking suitable precautions. The Highways Act 1980 empowers the Council to issue licences for these adornments."
