We are a small group that contains some very talented people.
We don’t seek an audience by propagating fear. We are unashamedly for the area. We like the cafes, the theatres, the exhibitions, the sport and the people. There is a change occurring on the North Shore, we are seeing a new generation of young, expert and enthusiastic people move in and run the place. And we like it.
Our offices are in St Ives although our workforce is distributed around the area.
