“My first job at the age of 15 was as an intern on The Cornish Times in Liskeard, where I went to the local comprehensive. It was my grass roots training in this community that helped me achieve my dream the following year of moving to London to work on The Wimbledon News. Everyone in the community was incredibly supportive of such a young and ambitious journalist and my first byline was covering St Matthew’s Fair. I was given a chance in Liskeard that not many would-be editors would get and I am where I am because of that, which is why I support this campaign.”
Another fabulous endorsement for our town. Hard not to feel very proud right now!
