No better place on Earth
Summer has finally arrived! My exhibition is half way through and I have a comment book to die for and have sold five paintings so far. Don and I have both had birthdays this month as well as the opening of a month long exhibition and a 30th wedding anniversary in April. It’s been a year of celebrations topped off by glorious weather. Bude has the look of Elvenny – cornish for ‘sparkle’ in the summer.
Bude is unique and there is a move to keep it that way. This doesn’t mean not developing or taking it forward, but there needs to be a clear direction. It isn’t a through town, North Cornwall is surrounded by sea on 3/4 of it. It has to be more self sustaining in terms of jobs and supporting local businesses. Transport links need to be improved, but we don’t want to go with big planners ideas of making generic identikit towns all over Cornwall. We are often forgotten by the county council down in Truro. Localism is the new buzz word and this is very appropriate to Budes needs. The future looks bright!
