|Camborne Trevithick-Day Committee|
The Camborne Trevithick-Day Committee was formed in 1983. The first Trevithick-Day was held in 1984. There is a written constitution for the "Trevithick-Day Association".
The committee consists of volunteer members of the community. Several committee members have their own businesses so bring good administrative, financial and planning skills to the committee. Each section, i.e. treasurer, secretary, steam, vintage vehicles, entertainments, street stalls, exhibitions, programme editing, schools, processional dances etc. is looked after by a committee member with relevant skills and experience in that field.|
The aim of the committee is to provide a festival of free entertainment to celebrate Camborne's industrial heritage and links with Richard Trevithick, Father of the locomotive.
You are invited to join the Camborne Trevithick Day Association, £1 annual membership, which runs from October. Joining the Association entitles you to attend and vote at the AGM. Please fill in the application form.
Camborne lies within an area of low wages and above national rate of unemployment, and is statistically recognised as being a deprived area with an image of a declining industrial base.
