A couple of young mums calling themselves The Dream Team are aiming to bring the community spirit back to the Old Hill estate and are hoping residents of all ages will get involved. Leanne Salter, who lives on the estate, and Teleah Peacock, who lives in Penryn, but is desperate to move back to her childhood home, decided just before Christmas to join forces with the hope of bringing people together. They launched a private Facebook page and were soon receiving messages of interest. They first started by helping the Salvation Army, but are now supporting the Beacon Community Regeneration Partnership (BCRP), which operates from the Beacon Resource Centre. The partnership offers help, advice and holds its own community events for all those living in the Penwerris ward. It has lost the majority of its funding so its staff are working on a voluntary basis and is in desperate need for cash to keep it going. Leanne and Teleah have now decided to encourage more people to use the … [Read more...] about The Dream Team is bringing the community together on the Old Hill estate

The return of the Premier League and fantasy football seasons are edging closer and closer by the day.And in the 2017/18 campaign, Dream Team is back, bigger and better than ever. WANT TO PLAY FANTASY FOOTBALL? SIGN UP HERE So, without further ado, it's time to unveil the most expensive player on the Dream Team game this season is... ...Harry Kane.The lethal Tottenham finisher racked up 305 points on the game last season, enough to earn him third place overall behind Sergio Aguero (307) and Alexis Sanchez (348).But his total is all the more astonishing given the fact he missed nearly 11 weeks of the season through injury.Kane finished the season as the top scorer in the Premier League with 29 goals, firing back-to-back hat-tricks in Spurs' last two league games to snatch away the accolade from Romelu Lukaku.And his prolific nature means he's a Dream Team points machine - and therefore completely justifies being the most expensive player - at £8m - on the game for the … [Read more...] about Fantasy football 2017/18: Who is the most expensive player you can sign on Dream Team this season?
