There is an update about the stadium on the club website. There will be an update on the coaches visit to NZ next week.

Thank you Pirate 15. The update makes interesting reading, BUT still begs the question that many supporters are dying to ask....."when will the first sod be cut at Langarth?"
Can we expect to see any progress in this respect during this Summer, (as has been mooted on more than one occasion?)
I do hope I can get a sensible reply to a simple question, and NOT be shot downs in flames like so many other correspondents on this site have suffered over the past few years.

BBC sport is reporting that the stadium will not be starting until Spring 2018 at the earliest.
"The statement said building will "hopefully" start next spring, with work on the stadium on the outskirts of Truro taking 14 months."
I have read the article on the club website and there is no mention of any start date.
Can someone clarify what is the actual position with regard to a possible start date for the stadium.

I have a Cornish shovel and a long wheelbase land rover. Be happy to cut some sods up.

I am ( personally) targeting spring for the start date.
We have appointed a project leader, we are also shortly confirming the architects and we have a day together at the end of this month where myself , Colin and Dallas Fisher will be sitting down with the project leader, the architects, Martin Tucker, Peter Masters et al to brain bash stadium requirements.
It is six years since I first contributed towards the design work along with INOX, the college and the council.
That input took us to the design level for the planning approval stage - which was obviously successful.
It is now opportune to get our ducks in a row starting with the next design stages/ project leader , hence our meeting on 31st May.
Shareholders are being invited to join us in the evening to get a briefing,so if you want to be involved and join in then the obvious way to do this is to become a shareholder. We have about 120,000 worth of unsold shares in the pot.
Contact Rebecca or Tom at the club if you are interested- minimum 2k. or

Thanks Dicky for the update....that was all we wanted to know.
By the way, I'm sure management won't be using CORMAC, will they????

Someone told me that CORMAC meant:-
C ouldn't
O rganise
R oad
M maintenace
A cross
C ornwall

......only joking!!!

I'm sure Cormac will be doing the access roads onto the site as part of the S106 agreement. It's not right that these jobs never go out to tender as they are an arms length company of Cornwall Council.Unfortunately we have no choice in the matter as they always get the contract.

Anyone know the hard working men and women of CORMAC who are probably your neighbours?

Dicky - as always you have summarised the situation -- v-well - "Thumbs Up" ( the software can't cope with symbols here !! ) - looking forward to seeing you in just under 2 weeks -- lots to be done -- by sounds of it -- I hope we don't have to build too many roundabouts !!

Roundabouts? Just bleddy straight roads - one from Penzance, one from Falmouth, one from St Austell direction, one from Camborne/Redruth , one from Newquay way direct to the ground should do it. Good enough for the Romans! Civil engineering? I could have been a contender! 😉
