“I grew up on the edge of “The Potteries” as a country boy. I then travelled a lot in my youth and I have seen many different cultures and countries around the world, so I’ve come a long way since moving to Cornwall, about eighteen years ago. I married and had children here, and we live opposite "Glanville's, Builders Merchant" almost in the middle of St Columb Major.

Cornwall is a place that asks something of you, so if you are prepared to give some of yourself, and work a bit, then what you get back in return is priceless. I love living here, and have found great friends hidden in this rare and rugged peninsular. In 2006, my wife and I bought a small corner shop in St Columb because we wanted to work where we lived. My wife is an artist, and I am a guild commended Picture Framer ("Beason Bespoke"). Shortly after renovating our little shop, the recession hit, and it is hard even now for us to fully commit to running a business in St Columb Major. Therefore we both currently work part time in Art & Design within the Cornwall College Group.

I know that much can be done to improve conditions for business in this area. I have always been a supporter of reinstating a local Chamber of Commerce, so I am thrilled to be Vice Chair. I have recently been co-opted onto the Town Council, and so you could say I have plenty on.

An active local Chamber of Commerce plays a crucial role in helping to establish and safeguard local economies. My role within The Chamber, is to carry  concerns raised by members, to local government, with one objective in mind:

'A brighter economic climate for business in the district of St Columb Major'.”
