Wonderful Porthleven

Through this column I have made positive comments about Porthleven in recent months, as it is clearly one of the up and coming areas of the county.

Furthermore, the town knows how to make the most of its attributes, which was demonstrated to me one recent afternoon.

The town centre always appears neat and tidy with a variety of businesses that visually compliment each other and in keeping with the overall ambience and style.

While looking around, I noticed what I assume is another new addition to the harbour head; an advertising board highlighting the businesses in the town.

This simple and presumably low-cost idea is designed to make shopping locally easier, which can only serve to help visitors, locals and business owners alike.

Yet another big tick for Porthleven.
