It’s always exciting to be published for the first time in a new publication. Recently, my article appeared on Cornish Story website.

When I saw this culture and heritage magazine mentioned on Twitter, I felt it would be good to spread my writing wings and try writing for someone else again. It’s been a while.  It’s always a risk that someone may turn the piece down, not like it, or change it beyond all recognition, but feel the fear, as they say…no excuses.

With my interest in Bude history and my contributions to Bude Past and Present and Bude & Beyond, alongside my Bude books, it seemed natural to chance my arm at writing this little piece. Now, I’m glad I did.
