College appoints new governors


Truro and Penwith College has appointed two new governors to its board.

Lucy Edge will be chair designate, to succeed the present chair, Ellen Winser MBE, when she steps down in the summer of 2019, having served in that role since 2004.

Edge, a physicist and engineer, set up the Avanti Communications Spacecraft Operations Centre, which operates a fleet of satellites providing global communications, and has managed the launch of rockets bearing satellites, now controlled from Cornwall.

She is also a non-executive director at The Eden Project as well as the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership.

John Green, meanwhile, is a retired Devon and Cornwall police superintendent, who spent most of his service with the force in Cornwall.
