Day 10 of our Advent Calendar reveals a very special 10th Anniversary for Cornwall Hospice Care and it’s Penryn Furniture shop, or Homestyle as it’s now known.

May 2007 saw our first ever dedicated Furniture shop open on Commercial Road, Penryn.  Lindsay Taylor, Business Development Manager for our Homestyle and Retro shops, was there on opening day and recalls the photograph of the official ribbon cutting ceremony.

She says “I remember the photo being taken but I’m not sure of all the names!  From the left,  Abbi Moseley who still volunteers in Falmouth all these years later, the guy in green was our driver John (who is now an extra in Doc Martin!) the lady cutting the ribbon is Gill Grant the then Lady Mayor,  me in the dress (with very short hair!), our Chief Executive Paul Brinsley and the chap behind is colleague Mark Scott who has sadly passed away since that photo was taken.”
