This week, George attended Clerkenwell Design Week. He met two of Cornwall’s leading creative companies, Nixon Design and MARK Product. Together with Invest in Cornwall, they were doing a fantastic job of promoting Cornwall as a place for great business.
George also went to the Chelsea Flower Show, to support Cornish businesses Burncoose Nurseries and Tregothnan Estate. There was also a Cornish themed garden supported by Tate St Ives.
George said “It is great to see so many of our local Cornish businesses doing so well, and promoting Cornwall as a fantastic place for business. I was particularly pleased to hear that Charles Williams of Burncoose Nurseries has been awarded the Victoria Medal of Honour in Horticulture, for his contribution to raising the profile of gardening, the horticultural industry and employment opportunities in Cornwall”.
