A quick tour of the Gardens and flowers at The Commercial Hotel in 2018.
Just a few minutes from the Commercial Hotel in St Just. This is also the main location used in the BBC TV Series Poldark.
Malcolm Bell, Chairman of the BeachWise Forum for the South West and Chief Executive of Visit Cornwall, welcomed the results.
He said: “It’s fantastic to see all Cornwall’s beaches pass these tougher tests with flying colours for the second consecutive year, despite the wetter weather this summer, with Devon not far behind.
“Bathing waters are much cleaner and have continually improved since 1990 when just 27% met European water quality standards. This is thanks to massive efforts by Defra, the Environment Agency, water companies, councils, local communities, farmers and environmental organisations.
“This year is only the third time that the results have been reported against the new standards, and the second consecutive year that 100% of Cornwall’s beaches have made the grade.”
The new regulations classify bathing waters as excellent, good, sufficient or poor, based on the level of bacteria in the water as monitored by the Environment Agency between May and September. Up to four years of results from 2014 to 2017 are combined to indicate water cleanliness.

Very pleased to see Penzance being listed in the New York Times as one of the best places to visit in 2017.
We are walking distance from the ‘Crowns’ featured in the photograph below.

Snowy Owl, first seen at about 7.30am being mobbed by seagulls and seen to fly off (N Wheatley). It was then spotted two fields away where it spent all day sitting on a wall near Boswellen Road.
It is a beautiful bird and people have been arriving everyday to catch a glimpse.
For more photos of the Snowy Owl visit The Cornwall Bird Watching and Preservation Society.
Shirley Woolcock, Paul Woolcock, Michelle Burton and gardener Colin Stephens in the garden of The Commercial Hotel in St Just, Cornwall, which has won South West Pub of the Year in Britain in Bloom.
Owner Paul Woolcock said:
“It’s a great honour, and it’s a great honour to win it for St Just. We don’t get the sun the other places do, and our part-time gardener Colin Stevens and I put a lot of work into it. I think it really shows a pride in the business, and all the pubs in St Just make a real effort.”
