    G7 visits St Ives

    G7 visits St Ives

    And just like that Cornwall went back to normal and it was like it never happened! But for a few days over the weekend things got very surreal around here with cavalcades of giant black cars and security driving through Penzance, exotic helicopters circling in the sky and our beautiful beaches flashing out on news reports across the globe – Boris even revealed himself to be a keen sea swimmer, diving in for a morning dip!

    When it was announced that the G7 was coming to Cornwall my first thought (once I had confirmed it wasn’t April fool’s day!) was that it would be amazing for business. In the end, however, St. Ives was very quiet; all the visitors were hanging out within the ‘ring of steel’ that said I don’t think I’m alone in feeling incredibly proud of Cornwall; our landscape, people and food. We managed to host a peaceful, positive global event in the midst of a pandemic. It’s a weekend we won’t forget in a hurry!
