t feels like summer has ﬁnally arrived in Cornwall, and what better way to celebrate than getting out on the water. In our cover feature this month, I’ve been lucky enough to be able to wax lyrical about one of my favourite past times...sailing! hether aboard a boat, or watching the action from the shore, there is something really quite magical about boats with the wind in their sails. Turn to page 28 and ﬁnd out more about how to get out on the water this season; young or old, beginner or expert, there is something for everyone. Falmouth is undeniably the south coast’s sailing capital and so, with the eagerly anticipated Falmouth eek almost upon us, we’ve been out and about discovering some of this cosmopolitan town’s exciting shops and businesses – turn to page 34 to disover more. As ever, this issue is packed full of properties, interiors, places to stay, art and a whole host of foodie favourites. So, wherever you’re exploring, be sure to pack a sunhat and a copy of Cornwall Living and you’ll have everything you need for the perfect summer.

low maintenance and built to last Fences play a key role in our gardens; they mark the boundary between our neighbours and provide security, keeping the kids and pets safe. So, it’s fair to say that they should be built to last.
Tim Woolcock Photography
The venue you’ve been dreaming of With amazing outdoor locations for your wedding ceremony and over ten acres of historic gardens for photos, Scorrier House makes the perfect summer wedding venue.

Rest and refuel at
Wavecrest, Lizard Point
Holiday home tips In an ongoing series of holiday home tips, we hear from George at Cornish Traditional Cottages about the benefits of Furnished Holiday Lets.
Overlooking Lizard Point, Wavecrest café makes the most of its position on mainland Britain’s most southerly point, with panoramic views. Situated at the start of the South West Coast Path leading to Kynance Cove, it’s the perfect place for a break on your tour of the Lizard, one where you can simply sit and soak up this atmospheric and historic location. The menu combines fresh, seasonal and local produce, with options ranging from sandwiches and light bites, to main meals, all made-to-order. In the mood for coffee, cake or a cream tea? No problem! The team serve their favourite blend of Italian coffee, as well as speciality teas and indulgent hot chocolates. Kids are sure to
love Wavecrest’s milkshake menu, while adults will appreciate the fact that the caf is fully licensed! The Lizard is a dog walker’s haven, with miles upon miles of coast path, beach and countryside for them to explore. Wavecrest understands this, welcoming well-behaved dogs on leads. This means that if you’re out on a family ramble and are planning a pit stop to refuel, your furriest of friends needn’t be left behind! With staggering views, a tantalising menu built from local Cornish fare and plenty of outside seating, Wavecrest café is a must-visit if you’re out and about on the Lizard this summer.
George tells us: “Unlike regular buy-to-let purchases, holiday lets can qualify for signiﬁcant tax breaks. If your Cornish holiday let meets the conditions for a Furnished Holiday Let (FHL), you have several tax advantages. For example, you can deduct mortgage payments from your expenses and get capital allowances for ﬁxtures and ﬁttings. Making the prospect of renting your property even more tempting. George continues In addition, the property is exempt from council tax and may also be eligible for ero business tax. Did you know? To qualify as an FHL a holiday let in Cornwall must be available for at least 210 days a year and let for a minimum of 105. For more information call 01208 895354 or visit www.corncott.com

Realise your dream bathroom at Plumbase Wadebridge Plumbase in adebridge was ﬁrst established on Trenant Industrial Estate in 2002. The wider brand has grown to be one of the best plumbers merchants in the south west, with a network of 200 branches nationwide!
The money you could make by letting your property can be used to fund amazing holidays, home maintenance and makeovers, or simply to boost your income. However, this kind of letting is rarely attractive to traditional letting agents because of the relatively short time periods involved. Instead, owners will typically need to list and market their properties themselves via online. But what if you lack the time or know-how?
Plumbase Wadebridge has just had a new bathroom showroom installed, with the ﬁnal touches set to be completed by mid April. So, if you’re looking for a new bathroom, Justin, Stuart, Dave, Richard or Tom will be more than happy to show you around and give you the inspiration you need to help create your dream bathroom. At Plumbase Wadebridge, the team pride themselves on their service and stock. No problem is too big or too small, and they’ll always try to help you ﬁnd solutions to suit your needs. They also provide a free local delivery service for larger items that can’t be collected from the stores. So, if you need
At this time of year, many Cornish residents are packing up and moving elsewhere in order to offer their homes to paying guests. Have you ever thought about doing the same?
anything plumbing related, be sure to pop into Plumbase or head to the website
Fortunately, List Assisters can help you get your property listed and, if you’d prefer, can also take care of the business side of things, such as dealing with enquiries and booking in guests. They don’t work on a commission percentage either, so you could be pocketing signiﬁcantly more for the same service!

What do you need for a break away? Secluded coves, coast path walks, and rural beauty close to the ﬁshing village of Mevagissey – so come to Bodrugan and stay in a comfy ensuite wooden cabin with views of 40 miles of coastline and an indoor heated swimming pool. Watch the stars and snuggle up by the ﬁrepit.

If you’re the proud owner of a holiday home in Cornwall but ﬁnd yourself rushed off your feet on changeover days, perhaps local, family run business, Holiday Home Waste Collection Ltd, based in Wadebridge, could be of service.
Play, stay and train with Action Petz Cornwall Owners of Action Petz Cornwall Dog Day Care, Mark and Linda Whatley, were inspired to purchase an Action Petz franchise by their love of dogs and of the Duchy. As Linda puts it: “Where better to open but in Cornwall – the place we have always loved and wanted to be?” Very much a family-run business, Action Petz is the perfect place to leave your dog while you work, shop, run errands or head to the beach for the day. Your furry friends will have fun, getting lots of attention and plenty of love under the care of the professional team of Canine Practitioners. The centre boasts both indoor and outdoor areas for your waggy tailed friends too, meaning they’re guaranteed to have fun come rain or shine. For more information call 01209 842168 or visit www.actionpetz.com/actionpetz-cornwall-dog-day-care
Cornwall Council now classes holiday home waste as commercial waste, meaning it’s no longer dealt with by domestic waste carriers. To have it collected by the Council, holiday homeowners are now required to pay and sign into 12-month contracts, and while the Council does recommend a few other companies, their collection days unfortunately don’t always coincide with changeovers. With this in mind, Holiday Home Waste Collection Ltd introduced a personable collection service to suit individual holiday home owners, offering a unique service and clean bins when guests arrive, without a binding contract, whereby owners can call up at anytime should a callout or any assistance be required. The team offers collections on both the north and south coasts on different changeover days. The service includes the bags and removal of general waste,
as well as glass recycling (by Cornwall Cullet) – sending glass to Yorkshire where it’s used for making light bulbs. Other mixed dry recyclables are sold on, while non-recyclables are incinerated, producing green energy that gets sent straight to the electrical grid. But that’s not all – they recently introduced food recycling too, adding to the long list of services available. Jennifer and her family run team can help you on an ad hoc, or can quote for weekly collections over the course of the year, for properties of all sizes, ultimately ensuring your visitors are not greeted by rubbish bags and piles of recycling when they arrive for their holiday.

Over the course of last winter, Philip Whear Windows & Conservatories were invited by Mr and Mrs Dudley-Cooke, owners of Lamorran House, to design and build an orangery sympathetic to the house and to blend with the beautiful gardens. Phil and his team embraced the challenge, completing both on time and in style! Being a sub-tropical Italianate inspired garden, the task was to complete an orangery that would create a quiet area in which to sit and admire Lamorran’s glorious vista, and also be used to complement the wedding venue. Great care was taken to ensure corrosionresistance from the elements – bearing in mind the Roseland peninsula’s exposure to them. Thermal eﬃciency was also a major consideration during the design, product selection and manufacture, which took place at Philip Whear’s Pool factory showroom. The ﬁnished product has been greatly admired by all who visit the beautiful Lamorran Garden, which is open to the public on Wednesdays and Fridays.

Ready to compete in this year's HRCST school regatta
urrounded as we are, on almost all sides, by the sea it’s not surprising that sailing is an inherent part of life in Cornwall – especially on the south coast with the port of Falmouth at its epicentre. Sailing, and in fact boats in all their forms, have always played a big part in my own life. Many a happy childhood day was spent with friends messing about in our little rowing boats off the beach at Cadgwith or joining my dad on one his many ﬁshing trips, bringing home a haul of pollack for our tea. If we were really lucky, we would be able to grab a ride out on one of the bigger crabbers, and watch the pots come in ﬁlled with juicy crabs and lobsters. Those formative days on the water gave us a taste for adventure and independence, but also a healthy respect for the sea. When we progressed from rowing boats to sail boats, there was no such thing as ‘proper’ sailing tuition. In those days, we adopted a very ‘ eath obinson’ approach to our ﬁrst taste of sail, pretty much teaching ourselves by trial, error and a lot of capsizing! As my own children reach the same age, they are now afforded the most fantastic opportunity to learn to sail, being taught the essential techniques by experienced instructors…and all for no cost.
n Helford River Children's Sailing Trust
n Helford River Children's Sailing Trust
The elford iver Children’s Sailing Trust (hrcst.org.uk), an RYA training centre and a member of RYA OnBoard, was set up in 2005. With an experienced team of adult volunteers, Senior Instructor, Martin Fenton and his team provided lessons for more than 850 local children last year aged between and . These children came from local primary schools, special schools, children excluded from education and, for the ﬁrst time, a group of home educated children. The trust’s ethos is that there should be no ﬁnancial barrier to any of their activities and by giving children and young adults in Cornwall access to sailing and other water activities, they can develop conﬁdence, competence and resilience. We head to the Helford every Wednesday evening where Martin is a familiar, smiling face at each of the sailing sessions: “Our aim is to grow not only the sailor but the person. We tailor our sessions to the individual

It’s not always plain sailing though as Mike Comyn, Chief Instructor, explains: The environment we work in can be challenging in itself. We go out in all types of weather and sea states, varying the lesson to the conditions and ﬁnding a sheltered cove to operate from. By listening to instruction, within the safety net we create, a child is able to overcome basic fears. By doing so, he or she is given a belief in instruction. This belief and trust can then be transferred to the classroom, home and future work environment.” The elford iver is for all. If you are from a poor background in Cornwall you are very unlikely ever to experience the beauty of this wonderful place. We who work the estuary everyday, have no doubt about its impact on our lives and we love to share. We meet children who live less than 10 miles from the coast and yet have never been to the beach! They have no concept of its beauty or how to interact with the sea safely. Our job is to remove these barriers.” To help remove these barriers further the trust was delighted to announce earlier this year that it had been awarded a grant in excess of £1.6m that meant they could start work on an inland water sports centre at

Trevassack Lake. This disused quarry will enable year-round watersports for all as well incorporating adapted holiday lodge accommodation for children with severe disabilities. There will even be a ﬂoating classroom allowing young people of all abilities to get out on the water and view marine life through underwater cameras and onboard screens. You don’t have to be resident in Cornwall to take advantage of this amazing opportunity as the trust also offers holiday sailing courses for visiting children. It is grass-roots opportunities such as this that are helping to grow our budding sailors here in Cornwall. From here, children have gone on to captain super yachts in the Med, race in some of the world’s most prestigious yachting events or become sailing instructors themselves. It’s clear that discovering a love of the water at an early age in Cornwall opens many doors, and for some young people it has been the driving force to study marine related subjects at Falmouth Marine School (falmouthmarineschool.ac.uk).
With a school on the site dating back as far as 1825, tutors now combine industry experience with academic expertise to offer courses that include boatbuilding, marine engineering and science and alumni regularly secure prestigious jobs within the industry, both across the UK and beyond. Falmouth local, Ben Davis, secured the position of Wing Manager for Ben Ainslie’s America Cup team, thanks to his expertise in boat technology gained at Falmouth Marine School, while Tom Jackman, who is now working as a Chief Engineer on super yachts, is enjoying the career he always dreamed of while travelling the world. The marine science course has helped students progress to some of the most prestigious marine-based academic institutions, but also includes a range of non-academic practical skills that are often considered to be essential for progression. These range from diving, snorkeling and powerboat handling through to aquatic husbandry, photography and marine mammal observation. Former student, Clare Marshall, completed an FdSC in Marine Science at Falmouth Marine School and is now a Plankton Analyst for the Marine Biological Association: “Falmouth is the perfect location to study marine biology. With the River Fal and several beaches a stone’s throw away, it makes for the perfect outdoor classroom.”

BUYING A BOAT
If you’ve got the sailing bug and want to invest in your own boat then speak to the team at Ancasta International Boat Sales (ancasta.com) who have offices in Mylor and Falmouth.
So, what does all this mean for getting out on the water in Cornwall? For me, it’s essential that the next generation of budding sailors, water sports enthusiasts and marine students are inspired at a young age so that they can continue Cornwall’s sailing heritage and keep Falmouth and its world-renowned sailing waters ﬁrmly pinned on the chart. Without this infrastructure we wouldn’t retain the top-class boat builders, marine companies, marinas and yacht clubs that we see today. If you’ve not had the opportunity to learn to sail at a young age then are many other ways you can become involved. The Cornish Maritime Trust cornishmaritimetrust. org) is dedicated to the preservation and enjoyment of Cornwall’s maritime heritage, operating three historic working boats – Barnabas, Soft Wing and Ellen – and training people in the associated skills of sailing, restoration and maintenance. Nonmembers are welcome to sail as a guest but the best way to experience these incredible boats and support the trust is to become a member. Whether you are an individual or an organisation, you can immerse yourself in days gone by in these historic 19th century sailing vessels. For a modern introduction to sail, or if you’re a novice seeking tuition, then Cornish Cruising, (cornishcruising.com) based at
Falmouth’s Yacht Marina, offers a complete charter, cruising and training centre, with RYA courses available in sail, powerboat and motorboat. You can spend even more time aboard by booking a yacht charter holiday that will see you discovering Falmouth’s world-class sailing waters as well as the unspoilt creeks of the Helford. However, if hoisting a mainsail ﬁlls you with fear and an easy life is calling, then Gweek Classic Boatyard’s (gweekquay.co.uk) 50ft Victorian launch, Constance, affords 19th century luxury on the water. You can cruise the Helford in style while sipping on a glass of bubbles or taking afternoon tea, watching the water, bird and marine life pass by. Cornwall affords everyone the ability to get out on the water and celebrating sail is something we do very well here – if you’re a Cornish sailor or a visiting yachtsman then Cornwall’s annual sailing regattas and events are sure to be already in your diary.

Mirri Damer Contemporary Jewellery
This Falmouth-based ﬂorist specialises in wedding, funeral and event ﬂowers, and owner Charlie also runs workshops to make ﬂower crowns for hen parties, birthdays and other events.
After years of working in the jewellery trade and on private commissions, award-winning goldsmith Mirri Damer opened her gallery on Falmouth’s High Street in 2015.
Cornwall has a wonderful selection of ﬂowers so Charlie always aims to use those that are locally grown. What’s more, keeping her environmental footprint as low as possible is something of a passion for her, so all of her ﬂowers and products used are foam free, recyclable or natural.
Using precious metals (all of which are recycled or fair trade) with beautiful gemstones, everything you see is designed and made right there in the workshop by Mirri and her team. Mirri’s designs are inspired by the weather-worn coastline, evoking perfect days spent on the beach. Bespoke commissions welcome.

WHAT DREAMS ARE MADE OF Do away with sleepless nights by finding the perfect bed for you, with help from the experts at Christie’s.
good night’s sleep is paramount when it comes to well being. Unfortunately, the vast majority of recent national studies conducted have concluded that us Brits just don't get enough of it! The importance of a new bed should not be underestimated. It can help you achieve signiﬁcantly increased and better quality sleep as well as contribute to various other major health beneﬁts, so it’s fair to say that choosing the right bed is key. Catching up with Peter Blell, owner of Christie’s Furniture and The Christie’s Bed Shop in Penryn, we ask him for his top tips when it comes to shopping for that super comfortable new bed.
The bigger the better “Make sure you think about the size of your room and what si e bed will ﬁt, Peter suggests. “Bigger is better! Studies indicate that the average person wiggles 60 to 70 times per night, so the bigger the bed, the less likely you’ll be disturbed by your partner. Optimise your storage “Having up to four side drawers or a front or side opening ottoman takes up no more space, whilst providing excellent storage! First entering the English market during the late 18th century from the Ottoman Empire, nowadays, ottoman beds offer practical space without having to sacriﬁce on style.

ç LEFT Finding the right bed should be anything but stressful! ê BELOW Whatever your style and budget, Christie's can help
Christie’s have a fantastic range to suit any budget and style, including both leather and upholstered beds! Sharing is caring If you’re sharing your new bed then Peter suggests trying it out together. “You both need a supportive and comfortable bed to aid with improved sleep. If you both have different comfort preferences, perhaps consider a dual tension bed where one half is softer or ﬁrmer than the other. This way, you both get the ﬁrmness that you need. Comfort is key It may seem obvious, but choosing the right bed to provide comfort and support is essential to consistent quality sleep. But, as Peter puts it: “Everybody is different. This is why we have over 100 different beds on display, including the best award-winning models. We can also provide expert advice to ensure you get the support and comfort that s right for you. How does it look? Be sure that your new bed looks as good as it feels. “Couple up your mattress with either a divan bed base – available in hundreds of different fabrics, with or without a matching headboard – or a bed frame, also available in different fabrics, materials and styles. Your bed, your bedroom, your style! Stick to your budget Finally, Peter stresses the importance of staying within budget. “Our beds start from £49 and go all the way up to £5,999! Spend as much as you can afford for improved comfort and support, but stick to your budget. For more expert advice on choosing the right bed for you and to see the comprehensive display of furniture on offer, why not pencil in a visit to Christie’s Furniture and The Christie’s Bed Shop?

Enhance your energy saving by converting from fossil fuels to electric.
ornish Cooker Conversions is committed to providing the energy saving solution of converting existing range cookers from fossil fuels like oil, gas or solid fuel to electric. The purpose of the conversion is to make it more eﬃcient by providing independent control of the hob and the oven, giving you the ﬂexibility required to reduce running costs and allowing you to control when your hobs are on and when they’re not. This has led to the development of the Energiser ayburn conversion kit, which is presently on ﬁeld trial. This innovative conversion kit is proving every bit as successful as the ElectricKit Aga conversion and has been designed to ﬁt the majority of ayburn models. For more information on these services feel free to call the Cornish Cooker Conversions team and chat with one of the experienced members of staff or visit the website. The company is often contacted by ayburn owners who have either had major mechanical breakdowns or fuel issues which can’t be resolved. Such issues can lead to a ayburn being uneconomic to repair, especially because the parts are often diﬃcult, if not impossible to source.
e hear from Cornish Cooker Conversions’ Alan Jackson, who tells us: “By converting to electric, we give your cooker a new lease of life, making it more economical and environmentally friendly, rather than scrapping it, disrupting the kitchen and buying a new cooker. It only takes a day to complete the work, which is done in situ – typically with little disruption to the kitchen. Converting your range to electric also means you will now use an alternative and more eﬃcient means of heating water and/or radiators. You still have the ability to enjoy the warmth the ayburn emits into the kitchen with the beneﬁt of being able to choose how much warmth you want and when. Follow Cornish Cooker Conversion on Facebook to see the projects that they’ve worked on.

o u nd BFOR SUCCESS We take a look at the world’s first domestic resin bound installation using Oltco’s innovative Recycle Bound solution. é ABOVE A fabulous new driveway that will last for years to come
eing an avid sailor, Mr Malindrinos has always been keen to play his part in combatting the global issue of plastic waste in the ocean, having seen its adverse effects ﬁrst-hand. So, when he was looking to update the aesthetics of his home with a new resin-bound driveway, when he learned about Oltco’s new Recycle Bound resin solution made using waste plastic, it was an easy decision. The installation at Mr Malindrinos’ home in Mylor Bridge took just one day, meaning he could still access the property easily with minimal disruption. About the Recycle Bound solution, Oltco Co-Director Tom Stringer tells us ecycle Bound is an ideal solution for domestic properties. Being insoluble means it will not wear away with water, and it meets S DS Sustainable rban Drainage Systems regulations.” In this particular case, the project used the equivalent of 258,000 plastic straws in its installation. This perfectly complements the rest of Mr Malindrinos’ renovations, which include an air source heat pump and a roof covered in solar panels, providing his water
heating and electricity. What’s more, with a 20-year guarantee, the new driveway provides him with the peace of mind and conﬁdence that it will last for years to come. “We are extremely pleased with our new Oltco Recycle Bound driveway,” Mr Malindrinos tells us, “and are delighted to be the ﬁrst domestic customer in the world to use the team’s new recycled plastic product. “As sailors ourselves, using Recycle Bound was an obvious choice, having witnessed the devastation of plastic pollution in our marine environment.” He also remarks on the impressive craftsmanship displayed by the Oltco team, explaining: “We believe that Oltco is doing a great job in helping to tackle the issue of plastic pollution already circulating in our seas, and we’re proud to be part of their journey.”

They also allow you to change the resistance to perfectly accommodate your ﬁtness level, with workout monitoring technology so you can always be aware of your progress. If you own a swimming pool in Cornwall, you can usually only use it for four to six months. A swim spa on the other hand can be used every day of the year. Not to mention that conventional swimming pools can require a lot of general cleaning and maintenance, whereas a swim spa has an integrated sanitising and ﬁltration system, so you can relax knowing you’re getting the cleanest and safest pool experience possible. aving installed lots of swim spas across Cornwall, the OC Spas teams are well equipped to help you with expert advice, so why not head to the showroom and discuss your options?

SPOTLESS SERVICE We speak to Ilona Ziarko, who tells us all about her Cornish housekeeping business, Spotless Cleaning.
é ABOVE Your property is in safe hands with Ilona and her team
ABOVE All your laundry needs taken care of at Spotless Linen
n what inspired Ilona to take the leap and start her own business, she explains how it was driven strictly by potluck. Studying Journalism and PR at Falmouth University, having moved here from Poland, “I had no intention to stay. My tutors convinced me to stay another year to obtain a full English degree; I wasn’t sure about this decision, as my daughter, Alex, was only nine years old at that time and waiting for me at home in Poland with my parents.” But, when Ilona called her to broach the subject, Alex told her mother: “Mum, I would love to go there. Harry Potter and Hermione live in England.” So that was that! A few years later, when things weren’t quite panning out as Ilona had expected, she decided it was time for a change. “I remember that I read this sentence somewhere: ‘If you want to achieve something that you have not achieved before, you must be prepared to do things that you have not done before.’” Spotless Cleaning Cornwall currently has a core team of ﬁve, with a further 2 working as subcontractors. Ilona aims to grow but, as she puts it, “I am taking baby steps here as I do not want to promise things too quickly.” The company has a very clear vision: to be a modern, well-equipped cleaning and laundry ﬁrm in Cornwall, with an extremely professional and highly trained team. Indeed, through their experience and the demand in the market, Ilona and co. have
become very successful as specialists in holiday lets and second homes; clients who care about their properties, who need to feel that they’re in good hands. As well as a ﬁve star changeover clean – which includes safety, damage, light and heating checks – the team can provide quality Cornish hampers for your guests on arrival, as well as taking care of all your laundry needs via Spotless Linen – their own laundry unit which utilises brand new, modern Electrolux equipment. Ilona can also advise on how to turn your house into the perfect holiday let, from must have equipment and safety requirements, to interior design tips. This fully professional service – Spotless Design – fulﬁls the need for sound advice on interior design and equipment, an area that sees many holiday home owners falling short of the mark. “We can offer invaluable help here, leaving owners enough freedom to adopt their own vision of their perfect holiday let, with specialist advice and professional support.” So, if you’re a second home or holiday let owner looking to make the most of your property, it’s fair to say that Ilona and her team are well-qualiﬁed to help you do just that.
01872 279724 www.spotlesscleaningcornwall.co.uk
TOP INTERIOR TIPS Ilona's timeless advice is that less is more, so be sure to declutter. She also points out the importance of sustainability in the products you choose, which is a top trend this summer. To achieve a sustainable interior, Ilona suggests choosing items made from natural and sustainable materials, such as wood, rattan, seagrass, and sustainable cotton.

GET SHREDDED Dispose of your personal or business data responsibly with Britannia Lanes.
ith the introduction of GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) in 2017, how data and paperwork is handled and disposed of is at the forefront of everyone’s mind. Whether it’s your own documents at home, or how you dispose of your customers and client’s information as a business, it’s important you have total peace of mind that this is done securely. When it comes to home shredding, the number of documents that now need shredding for total personal security is at its highest level. The leading advice tells us that any envelope, letter or scrap of paper with a name, address or contact number needs to be disposed of securely, meaning our homes can often become cluttered with a ‘pile to shred.’ Most small household shredders simply cannot handle the amount of shredding produced by the average family home, which is why Britannia Lanes supply shredding sacks that are ideal for personal use. These can be collected from the Brittania Lanes oﬃce or delivered to you. The sacks are easy to use and you can ﬁll them up as you go, making unsightly paperwork piles a thing of the past. The bags can be dropped back to your closest depot when you’re next passing, or if you have ﬁlled ﬁve bags or over they will be collected from you at no additional charge.
For total peace of mind you can then use the individual tag number with your postcode to track your bags’ progress online and receive a destruction certiﬁcate once they’ve been shredded. For businesses, disposing of any data you may produce such as printed emails, ﬁles and written notes containing customers’ and clients’ information in a safe and trustworthy manner has never been more important, with hefty ﬁnes for any company found not to be doing this. For business customers, as well as offering shredding sacks, there are also secure lockable consoles, which allow anyone in your oﬃce to securely deposit documents into the console without being able to regain access to them. Shredding services not only give you conﬁdence that your documents are being destroyed securely, it also means you can rest assured that you’re doing your bit for the environment as the paperwork Britainia Lanes shred is 100% recycled.

Constantine itself is on the edge of the Helford’s breathtaking Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and only minutes from the enchanting Helford river. Studded with quiet creeks, the river is home to a multitude of sailing clubs, kayak and small boat hire, with plenty of ﬁshing spots for catching your supper. The area is also famed for its sub-tropical gardens, including Trebah and Glendurgan, where plants usually found in warmer climates thrive. An Skiber’s garden shares the same inspiration, with spring bringing dashes of colour from azalea, rhododendron and camellia, whilst summer is heralded by the ﬂourishing of the ama ing Chilean ﬁre bush, gunnera and soothing tree ferns. What’s more, clever use of reverse levels mean that the sun-trap garden is easy to access, whether you’re upstairs or down. Inside, the barn has been sensitively transformed, providing easy-going accommodation for six across three bedrooms.

. . . g n i c u d Intro The newest addition to the Harbour Hotel brand in the bustling fishing port of Padstow.
or many years Padstow has been a hotspot for foodies, families and those looking for an authentic Cornish break. It’s the perfect location for a Harbour Hotel – a brand that already has a portfolio of stunning four and ﬁve-star hotels across the south of England. After acquiring it in the autumn of 2018, the hotel has undergone a transformational renovation, reconﬁguring the public spaces, fully refurbishing all bedrooms and injecting the Harbour personality with vibrant design and excellent service.
Food and drink For those looking to sample the delights of foodie Padstow, the hotel’s Kitchen, Bar Terrace offers casual, all-day dining, all with those enviable harbour views. The menu has been designed by John Pollard, who joined the Harbour Group having worked in renowned kitchens such
as J Sheekey, Scotts of Mayfair, and the ivington Gill. In 2 , John spearheaded the Pizza East opening in Shoreditch for the Soho ouse group, revolutionising the food scene in east London with simple food, high-end ingredients and perfect execution. In 2012 he took his brand of farm to fork menus to Soho House Berlin, helping to drive the food revolution in Germany. On returning to the UK he then developed Chicken Shop and Dirty Burger brands for Soho House Group, helping to roll out the concept throughout London. Now at Harbour, John and his team advocate locally grown produce, farm raised, wild-caught seafood and farm assured meats, to expertly make traditional favourites and modern classics, all with a contemporary twist. You’ll ﬁnd the food at Harbour Kitchen, Bar & Terrace light, seasonal and locally sourced to showcase the region’s ﬁnest ﬂavours. The menu features many of Harbour Hotel’s signature dishes, including the Harbour

DISCOVER MORE The team are always on the lookout for new holiday properties, so if you’d like to know more about the service they can offer, call the Owners team on 01326 336773.
ea Cliff Cottage was previously a four bedroom property but after speaking with the team at Cornish Cottage Holidays, owner Marie took a bold leap of faith and transformed the property into an even more luxurious coastal bolthole for her guests to enjoy. The changes included turning one bedroom into a plush bathroom with walk-in shower and roll top bath, while the other became the ultimate for movie fans; a state of the art cinema room with gourmet popcorn, Netﬂix and a quirky gin station. At the front of the property there is a charming stone veranda which affords dramatic sunset views across Pentewan Valley, below which is a sunken dining area with a large wooden dining table and gas barbeque to enjoy leisurely al fresco meals. Climb the steps to the rear terraced gardens and you’ll ﬁnd additional dining space with a barbeque and, further up still, a wood-ﬁred hot tub in which to soak and enjoy a glass of bubbles. During the day, why not simply relax on rocking sun loungers – a great way to while away sunny afternoons. Owner Marie tells us At ﬁrst, going from four bedrooms to two felt counter intuitive but once I thought about the advice, I was
fully committed. The changes I’ve made make me smile and the icing on the cake is that, since it was relisted, the bookings have started pinging through!” The ﬁrst guests since the work was completed were a young couple who used the house as their base for their wedding next door at Pentewan Church. “The bride used Sea Cliff Cottage as the base for herself and bridesmaids to stay and get ready pre-wedding. After the wedding her and her new husband stayed on for two nights before ﬂying off to Europe. I was over the moon that they enjoyed it for such a special romantic occasion.” Just a short stroll from the white sands of Pentewan beach, Sea Cliff Cottage has been transformed to blend into the beautiful original architecture with a stylish, fresh look. Cornish Cottage Holidays offer a wide variety of unique and stylish properties just like this – make sure to visit the website for more information.

Discover Trigva’s fresh approach to marketing and selling your Cornish property.
ith a Cornish team who’re proud of their roots, Trigva (which means ‘abode’ or ‘dwelling’ in Cornish) is a young start-up company based in the north Cornish coastal town of Rock. We catch up with company founder, Sam Williams, to ﬁnd out more about his passion for Cornish property. Sam’s drive for marketing and selling property is matched only by his love for this beautiful part of the world, “which I have been doing for a number of years now,” he explains. “What I deliver, alongside experience of the north Cornish property market, is a unique energy and a modern approach. No fussy suits, shiny shoes or shady strategies; just switched-on sales techniques and an ability to build relationships with clients.” Sam is a ﬁrm believer that people buy from people. “Making personal connections really is one of the most rewarding parts of the job for me. I want to change people’s perceptions of estate agents and make selling property a stress-free experience. “Honesty and trust are two of the most important values for me,” Sam elaborates, “and are absolutely inherent to how we do business at Trigva. This is why we’re always upfront about what we charge, and don’t
shy away from clearly disclosing our fees and terms. For instance, to sell with us, we ask for a £260 upfront payment to launch the property, then just 1% when the property sells. And, as we are a brand new company, there is no VAT to pay!” Sam shows us to his ﬁrst instruction – an extremely stylish, versatile and spacious property nestled within the charming Cornish hamlet of Tredrizzick. Within close proximity to popular north Cornwall hotspots such as Rock, Daymer Bay and Polzeath, Sam tells us: “The current vendors make the most of the space by holiday letting part of the property, which comprises two bedrooms and a trendy open-plan living space.” The main accommodation comprises four en-suite bedrooms, including a master with its own balcony, plus a gorgeous open-plan kitchen/diner and a cosy snug room. Meadows is available now at a guide price of £925,000 and a viewing comes highly recommended. Interested? Why not contact Sam and the team and see for yourself what sets the Trigva experience apart?

EXPERIENCE ST IVES
Get to know the cobbled streets and picturepostcard beaches of St Ives like a local.
DISCOVER MORE On the other side of the Hayle river, at low tide, you’ll find three miles of sand stretching all the way to Godrevy Lighthouse, popular with families and water sports enthusiasts alike.
f you’ve ever visited St Ives, you’ll already know that much of the town’s historical charm remains in the granite cottages and the labyrinth of lanes and alleys known as ‘Downalong’, where around each corner can be found a hidden treasure, a gallery, potter’s yard, theatre or café. The town is surrounded by incredible beaches too, each with a character of its own. The three main beaches here were all awarded Blue Flag status in 2017 for their cleanliness and facilities, and many beneﬁt from the watchful eyes of lifeguards during the holiday season. Taking a tour of these golden sands, Porthmeor faces the Atlantic ocean and is the most popular beach, especially with surfers and bodyboarders. It’s also home to St Ives Surf School and the popular Porthmeor Beach Café. ead east and you’ll ﬁnd Porthgwidden; smaller than the main beaches, there is a lovely atmosphere here with all the facilities you need for a good old-fashioned family day out. And if you like Porthgwidden, you’ll love Bamaluz! This very small beach is mostly rocks, but as the tide goes out, it reveals a sandy beach located in the middle of the town. It’s popular with dog owners too, being dog friendly all year round! The harbour beach has areas that are family friendly due to their access to the town’s shops and cafés. At low tide, the sands continue onto Lambath Walk, located just
behind the Lifeboat Station. Continue along Lambath Walk and The Warren and you’ll come to Porthminster, another large beach protected from the surf. The beach retains a slightly Victorian feel, with the architecture of the cafés and restaurants, yet it boasts everything the modern beach goer could ask for, including kayak and SUP hire – perfect for making the most of the calm blue waters. As you leave St Ives, you’ll come to Carbis Bay, home to another sweeping stretch of sand that's perfect for families, and with all the facilities you need for an all-day stay. Continue around the bay and you’ll ﬁnd Porthkidney – a vast expanse of sand that can stretch out nearly a mile at low tides, and which is dog friendly all year round! There’s so much more to discover in this beautiful pocket of coastal Cornwall. If you’re looking for the perfect base from which to explore it all, St Ives Holidays may just be what you’re looking for. With over 240 hand picked holiday cottages, solely situated in and around St Ives, you’ll be spoilt for choice!

heaven Head to Hendra in Newquay for a holiday experience you won’t forget.
ou’d probably assume that, as one of only a handful of England’s holiday parks to achieve a prestigious Visit England 5 Star Gold and an AA Pennant Platinum rating, Hendra Holiday Park near Newquay would be content, but this family owned park will never rest on its laurels! Situated in 80 acres of countryside minutes from Newquay’s golden sand beaches, Hendra plays host to up to 4,000 guests every night during peak summer months and 2019 looks likely to be another good year. “We’re delighted to continue being included among the elite of English holiday parks inspected by Visit England, not least because quality plays such a big part in awards,” says Director Jon Hyatt. “Guests are actively seeking excellent hospitality, and that is our greatest strength, mainly due to the hard work and dedication of our team,” Jon continues. “Many of our guests are repeat visitors and that suggests we’re getting it right. This is also a result of continuous investment too – over £1.5 million in the last twelve months alone, with constant attention to guest feedback.” Jon also points out that in peak season, Hendra employs around 250 staff, and the £16 million-plus spent annually in the local area by guests beneﬁts other businesses, making a substantial contribution to the local economy. Not only are there award-winning touring and camping pitches, there’s also a choice of spacious top-of-the-range holiday homes too, including those with home-from-home luxuries like king-size beds, en suites and outside decks, all at the very best quality standards visitors would expect from one of Cornwall’s premier accommodation providers. Facilities include the spectacular Oasis fun pools, an indoor play centre, restaurant, caf , pi eria, ﬁsh and chip takeaway, entertainment venue, amusements, playgrounds and even its own supermarket!
Guests seeking a quality stay and activity experience can be assured that a holiday at Hendra will be ‘green’ too! Hendra’s ten-acre solar farm supplies the park with most of its energy and the park has achieved major tourism and business awards for sustainability, making it one of Cornwall’s top environmentally friendly resort destinations.

IN THE WORLD When time is of the essence, Patek Philippe’s World Time watches are at the very pinnacle of class and functionality.
orld Time watches are more important than ever in our globally networked lives. e ﬂy around the world, have online conversations with people on the other side of it, pursue international trade relations and share ideas on a global scale. So it’s good to know the time in the places to which we are travelling, or those where the people we’re communicating with live. Patek Philippe orld Time watches fulﬁl this function in an exemplary way: they show all 24 world time zones at a glance. The local time is most prominently displayed, in the classic manner with the hour and minute hands. For the other 23, the times are directly readable on the 24-hour ring that rotates counter clockwise within the city disk. The minutes indicated by the minute hand are the same for all time zones. Patek Philippe owes this ingenious functionality to an invention in the 1930s by Genevan watchmaker Louis Cottier. The mechanism was later reﬁned and patented by Patek Philippe. Changing to a different time zone is made easy with a World Time watch – literally at a few clicks of a button – and the time in all 24 zones is always displayed with the precision speciﬁed by the directives of the Patek Philippe seal. An excellent example is the Men’s World Time Reference 5230G. This famed World Time watch is highly coveted among
frequent ﬂyers and collectors, and has been carefully realised with a white-gold case, a pierced hour hand that reﬂects the exclusive Patek Philippe style, as well as a manually engraved dial centre with a motif inspired by a historic model in the Patek Philippe Museum’s collection. In 1997, this world-renowned brand enriched its portfolio of useful complications by launching a new movement with two time zones – the Calatrava Travel Time. This ingenious system allows the local hour hand to be moved backwards or forwards, an hour at a time. The feminine interpretation of the Calatrava Pilot Travel Time, the Reference 7234R, combines a rose gold case with a brown dial and subtle black gradation toward the periphery. Along with its dashing aeronautical style and second time zone display, this stunning piece is also the ﬁrst self-winding Travel Time model in Patek Philippe’s collection for women. To learn more about these fabulous collections and watches, be sure to visit Patek Philippe’s authorised retailer, Michael Spiers.

or Silver Origins, living and working by the sea in west Cornwall has profoundly inspired and inﬂuenced the style and design process, with unique silver jewellery collections that capture the essence of Cornwall, its spectacular scenery, breathtaking natural beauty and lifestyle of our coastal communities. Silver Origins is a family run, independent jewellery brand that began in 2. Today, three generations of family members run the business along with dedicated staff who all play a key role in a common endeavour to create a successful jewellery brand. Specialising in sterling silver, a timeless precious metal with intrinsic value and beauty combined, all jewellery is designed in-house and headed by Creative Director, Marcus Price, who was born and grew-up in west Cornwall and developed a strong aﬃnity for the ocean and coastline having been a keen surfer and diver since childhood. Salt water is in the blood as his father, Tony Price, founder of the company, was one of the ﬁrst commercial divers in Cornwall back in the early sixties, and a keen long-board surfer. New designs and ideas start out as a simple pencil sketch with the original moulds hand carved out of wax to achieve the natural organic shapes and textures. Silver is then cast using the lost wax method, sanded, polished and the stones are then set by highly skilled

silversmiths. Everything is made by hand with attention to detail and quality, so that every design maintains the Silver Origins signature look and feel. It’s so rewarding to create original and tactile handcrafted jewellery with fresh and exciting seasonal collections launching throughout the year and mid season, Marcus tells us. The collections evolve from the iconic backdrop of Cornwall’s sub-tropical gardens and wildlife, rugged beaches, coastline and sea life – together with its rich Celtic heritage. This truly dramatic setting provides endless visual inspiration. Natural organic shapes, sculptured and weathered rock formations, pebbles and shells found beachcombing on the tideline, rockpools teeming with life and ocean waves pounding our shores. A piece of Silver Origins jewellery has a connection to something meaningful and intrinsically beautiful. Many designs feature semi–precious gemstones, contrasting textures and gold vermeil to enhance the spirit and story of each piece. Silver Origins designs are elegant in their simplicity and minimalism, demonstrating that, often, less is more. Each collection is unique with designs to suit everyone, from the fun and whimsical to the eternally romantic, celebrating love and life moments. All collections are available in-store or online. Silver Origins has two jewellery
boutiques, one situated in the ancient market town of Mara ion, across the water from the famous St Michael’s Mount, and the ﬂagship store in St Ives, with its pristine beaches, cobbled streets and art galleries. isiting one of the jewellery boutiques is a real experience, with stunning contemporary displays and interiors, friendly and knowledgeable staff to guide you through the extensive range and help you ﬁnd that perfect gift for a loved one – or just a little retail therapy for yourself, all at very affordable prices.

STARING DOWN THE BARREL We catch up with Mike Lacey and discover his drive to immerse himself, camera in hand, into Cornwall’s most powerful waves. ABOVE é Mike searching for his next piece of water magic INSET Visit either the Falmouth or Porthleven gallery and immerse yourself in the waves
orking in the waves for a living, according Mike Lacey, founder of Waves Surf Art Gallery, is a strange concept and not one that’s easy to explain, “but throwing on a wetsuit, grabbing the camera and swimming out, there are scarce few things that can make me feel more at home.” Not only does being out in the surf excite Mike; the images he’s yet to capture – the search for that next piece of water magic – makes it all doubly exhilarating. “That’s what keeps me motivated to get out there.” During the winter months, Mike immerses himself in the biggest waves. “The adrenaline gets going and the nerves kick in, but that’s when I start to break down the shots and concentrate on how I can portray it in an image, how I can convey the danger and excitement.” Most of the time, Mike tells us, he just has to get stuck in, getting into the critical parts of the wave itself. “Just to get the perspective and element of danger, sometimes I have to take the risk and get as close to the tube as possible, take the hit and just hope I don’t get taken with it when it breaks!” It’s fair to say that there’s nothing quite like seeing it go from my camera to the
wall in the gallery; the life size impact you get from it is just incredible. “I can relive that very moment, Mike reﬂects, just as if I was back there taking it, another piece of an ocean jigsaw that I’m always trying to complete.” Sharing these moments with everyone is an amazing feeling for Mike, and he loves telling gallery visitors about them. “People have a genuine interest in how it’s achieved and always ask about my cameras and techniques, and where’s next. I have my favourite beaches to shoot at, but to be honest, I feel spoilt here in Cornwall. All of the beaches are just so stunning and having the opportunity to capture their beauty is a real honour and privilege. e ﬁnishes “Thank you Cornwall.”

Introducing FestWest PZ â€“ an all-new Cornish festival showcasing leading international artists alongside home-grown talent in Penzance.

CL--88--ED--Penzance Bid--2.00.indd 2
é ABOVE FestWest PZ is set to become an annual highlight è RIGHT
Penzance has a brim-full calendar of cultural events
et to take place between 18th and 22nd September this year, the idea for FestWest PZ came from the opportunity of hearing concertos on the Hall for Cornwall’s Steinway piano, which is currently being housed in St Mary’s Church on Chapel Street in Penzance while renovations are carried out. Bringing together IMS Prussia Cove, Tim Boulton, Tim Dean, Penlee Theatre, The Acorn and Exchange Penzance, this new festival is supported by Penzance BID and hopes to become an annual highlight! Penzance has been synonymous with the arts over the centuries, with a history of nurturing innovators and creative talent. Thanks to its stunning coastal backdrop, beautiful architecture and maritime history, it provides the perfect setting for a celebration of the arts. There are events in venues across Penzance, including St Mary’s Church, Penlee Theatre, The Acorn Theatre and St John’s Hall, with a line-up of international stars including IMS Prussia Cove, who are renowned for understanding the fruitful relationship between nature and music, and the inspiration that this part of Cornwall can offer to both artists and audiences. Many of the world’s leading soloists have attended IMS’ seminars and acknowledge how much their playing owes to the magical inﬂuence of time spent in Cornwall, and former students and participants of the seminars can be found among the leaders of some of the world’s greatest orchestras! This year’s productions include Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring, Debussy’s
Estampes, Haydn String Quartet’s Op. 77 No. 1, and Thomas Ades’ The Four Quarters. Highlights of a strong recital programme include Susan Tomes, Charles Owen and Dominic Degavino, plus the Castalian and John Law Quartets. If this sounds like your idea of a festival heaven, you’ll be pleased to know that Penzance is home to a superb selection stays, so you can pick the perfect base from which to enjoy all FestWest PZ has to offer. Whether your taste demands a luxury guesthouse, a self-catering cottage, countryside bed and breakfast or a boutique hotel, you’re well catered for here. And, when it comes to sating that inevitable sea-air appetite, Penzance has been described as ‘Cornwall’s new foodie capital’. Indeed, it’s become well known for superb food and drink, hiding some of the region’s most exciting pubs and restaurants in tucked-away locations along its historic streets. Tickets, which are available from £9, with concessions available for those under 25, can be purchased online or from the Box Oﬃce at The Minack Theatre. For more information about this exciting new festival, be sure to visit the website.

e m i t h g u o r th Step through the unassuming doors of the Museum of Cornish Life for a truly breathtaking surprise!
é ABOVE Discover the many and varied exhibitions on display at this fabulous Cornish museum
f you're out and about exploring Cornwall and are looking for the perfect all-weather attraction to entertain everybody, in the market town of elston, you’ll ﬁnd the Museum of Cornish Life, offering a fascinating insight into the area’s rich tapestry of history and heritage. The building was originally designed as the town’s market house in 1837, with two separate buildings – one for butter and eggs, the other for the meat market. Today, it retains the original sloping ﬂoor, which adds to the authenticity of experience as you wander back in time to the Cornish days of yore. In front of the museum is a cannon, salvaged from the wreck of the frigate HMS Anson, which foundered off Loe Bar in 1807. Around 100 sailors’ lives were lost in the disaster, inspiring Henry Trengrouse to invent the ‘Rocket’ lifesaving apparatus, which can be found inside the museum. Head inside and you’ll immediately ﬁnd that the museum contains a vast social history collection. Dating from the 18th to the 20th century, the range of objects covers agriculture, local trades and industries, as well as law and order,
town history, home life, toys, sporting equipment, gardening, transport and health and leisure activities. Indeed, the sporting display features the famous Bob Fitzsimmons who, heralding from Helston, made boxing history as the sport’s ﬁrst three-division world champion. The Victorian Classroom, meanwhile, provides a fascinating (and, indeed, eye opening!) insight for children, to see what life was like for pupils all those years ago. The museum boasts the best costume collections of the south west, also offering a regular programme of temporary exhibitions, meaning that there’s usually something new to be found every time you visit. ith a team that ﬁrmly believes in learning as a life-long process, if you're hoping to brush up on your Cornish history, a trip to elston’s Museum of Cornish Life comes highly recommended.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY! 2019 marks 30 years since Bodmin & Wenford Railway was granted its light railway order, and what a year it’s having in celebration! é ABOVE Step back in time to a bygone era, with experiences to delight kids and adults alike
JOURNEY BACK IN TIME Expect delicious Cornish fare in a delightfully different setting. Dine in First Class as you travel towards the Glynn Valley and out along the Camel Trail.
o celebrate years of steaming passengers down the line and back in time, alongside their regular programme of activity and special events, the Bodmin & Wenford team have been sharing the fascinating history of the railway and some exclusive promotions via social media, so be sure to follow them! So what’s the railway’s secret to success? Perhaps more than anything else, Hannah Irwin, the railway’s Visitor, Events and Marketing Manager, tells us: “Volunteering. The railway is run by a dedicated, passionate team of volunteers who keep us on track.” From behind the scenes in the engine sheds and workshop, to the driver and ﬁreman on the footplate, or the person who sells you your ticket in the booking oﬃce or on the train, Hannah explains, “we couldn’t do it without them. If you’re looking for a rewarding opportunity with a friendly and enthusiastic team, then volunteering with Bodmin enford ailway could well be for you! It isn’t just the anniversary celebrations that have got the Bodmin & Wenford crew excited. In fact, having secured funding from Great Western Railway and Cornwall Council, they recently announced plans for a second platform at Bodmin General! But it’s not yet
full steam ahead – the railway now needs to raise the additional funds to make the project a reality. To ﬁnd out more about the platform and the fundraising campaign, be sure to visit the Bodmin enford website. As if all of this wasn’t enough, Hannah tells us that the railway is delighted to be welcoming The Gruffalo on 28th and 29th September, who’ll be strolling out of the deep dark wood to meet passengers at intervals throughout both days. Just one of the many events in the railway’s calendar, in addition to a journey on a steam train, there’ll be plenty to entertain families as they explore the railway and partake in activities inspired by Julia Donaldson’s world-renowned children’s book. There’s so much going on at Bodmin & Wenford Railway throughout the year, with experiences for kids and grown-ups alike. So if you’re looking for a day out with a difference be sure to visit the website. Better still, why not pencil in a trip to your summer calendar?

LET THERE BE Mr Patwardhan tells us about the different options available at Duchy Hospital when it comes to cataract surgery.

he human eye works like a camera. It has a natural lens that allows images to focus on the retina. This lens is transparent until it turns cloudy and develops opacity – otherwise known as a cataract. This is most commonly caused by age-related changes to the lens. Occasionally, cataracts can develop at a much younger age due to the use of steroid, injury to the eye or metabolic disorders. Modern cataract surgery is a very sophisticated procedure performed by highly trained and skilled Ophthalmic Surgeons using technologically advanced equipment. The procedure takes 15-20 minutes under local anaesthetic, requires no stitches and no hospital stay. The surgeon, using a phacoemulsiﬁcation machine, breaks the lens in the eye and sucks it out. An acrylic intraocular lens (IOL) is then inserted in its place. This restores clear eyesight. According to Mr Patwardhan, standard IOL, also known as monofocal lens, gives clear focus at a ﬁxed distance. So, if the clear focus is for far distance, the person will need glasses to read books or work on the computer. Premium IOLs, however, are specially designed to provide spectacle free vision. These lenses are not routinely available on the NHS. Multifocal IOLs provide focus at all distances and Toric IOLs correct astigmatism.
Multifocal IOLs enable clear near, intermediate and distance vision without the need for glasses. The ‘Bifocal’ lenses are designed to give two distinct areas of clear vision, near and far. The new ‘Trifocal’ technology, available through Duchy Hospital, gives an additional area of clear vision for intermediate distance, for instance a computer screen. The technology, which uses Extended Depth of Focus, allows smooth transition of vision from distance to near but offers less clear vision for near-sight than the Bifocal or Trifocal technology. Mr Patwardhan continues: “Toric IOLs are designed to correct astigmatism, which where a person’s cornea is shaped more like the side of a rugby ball than a football. This can be corrected by inserting a Toric IOL in the eye, instead of needing to wear glasses.” There is a right IOL for everyone, be it standard or premium. Consultation at Duchy Hospital offers the opportunity to ascertain which IOL is suitable for an individual based on their eye examination, lifestyle and expectations.

A DAY OUT WITH Ever wondered what it takes to respond to some of the world's worst natural disasters?
oogle ‘disaster relief visitor centre’ and you might be surprised to learn that the only one in Europe is in Truro. Step into one of Cornwall’s most unique visitor attractions and you’ll enter the fascinating world of ShelterBox, an international relief charity that responds to natural disasters. Free to enter, this really is a day out with a difference that will leave you feeling inspired. But what is a disaster relief visitor centre all about? “It’s hard to describe what a disaster relief visitor centre is, but it’s not like a museum,” says Andy Bramwell, who runs the centre. “We don’t talk about the past, we talk about where we are responding now, and how the aid items we send can create a future for people who have survived disasters.” Since its birth in Helston 19 years ago, Cornish charity ShelterBox have responded to earthquakes, ﬂooding, drought, storms and conﬂict all over the world, helping over .5 million people get their lives back to normal. Its visitor centre showcases some of the aid items it provides like tents, solar lanterns and water ﬁlters, while interactive displays and exhibits explain how it decides where to respond and show the positive impact a simple item can have for a family who’ve lost everything after a disaster. “It’s interactive, thought provoking, family friendly and educational all at the same time and our visitors have been overwhelmingly positive” says Andy. “We’re only a small attraction, but I can guarantee your visit will be time well spent. Our work, the people
we meet, the problems we have to solve and the stories we encounter are endlessly fascinating.” If you love talking about the weather then you’ll feel at home in this summer’s new exhibition ‘Hurricanes, Cyclones and Typhoons’. You’ll ﬁnd out about the science behind how and where they are formed, learn about the effects of devastating winds, storm surges, and ﬂooding, and hear about the storms ShelterBox has responded to. Your family can tackle the Hurricane Challenge Trail, have a go at packing a ShelterBox and explore the family friendly Weather Lab, where budding meteorologists can have a go at making lightning, thunder and tornadoes.

FENCING HARD LANDSCAPING
DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES? Cornwall Hospice Care’s ‘It’s A Knockout’ returns é ABOVE Battle it out at this year's 'It's a Knockout' event!
irst shown on the BBC back in the 1960s, It’s a Knockout was a game show where teams of people competed in entertaining and funny games, often using bouncy castle-type obstacles. Now, nearly 60 years on, teams of up to ten can once again compete in a bid to be crowned overall winner and ‘Knockout Champion’, all while raising funds for Cornwall Hospice Care! Last year, when the Cornish charity ﬁrst offered its exciting ‘It’s A Knockout’ day, over 30 teams battled the most torrential rain, but still managed to raise over £17,000 for the care of those terminally ill in Cornwall.
Unsurprisingly, the team are delighted to be holding it again! While no guarantees are made about the weather, Cornwall Hospice Care guarantees fun all round. In the morning the games will be dry, but expect to get wet in the afternoon; think wet bouncy castle slides and obstacle courses, all making for some superb spectator sport! The event could be described as a ‘school sports day for adults’, ideal for a group of friends or a team-building exercise for companies wishing to join in. There will also be stalls selling food and refreshments, and the charity encourages all those who enter to bring family and friends along to cheer the participants on, as there’ll be something for everyone to enjoy. Set to take place on Sunday 1st September, registration is just £50 per team, with £300 per team to be raised in addition. Teams are for up to ten people, so you can take part for as little as £35 per person. You need to be 16 years of age to take part. To register your team or to ﬁnd out more, visit Cornwall Hospice Care and search ‘It’s A Knockout’, or give the team a call. Will you be the next ‘It’s A Knockout’ champion?
