City has so much on its doorstep
THE city of Plymouth is very important to my Constituency. Many people commute daily to Plymouth for employment.
Indeed, the close proximity to the City of Plymouth is a very real benefit to us here in South East Cornwall.
There are so many benefits that South East Cornwall can provide to the people of Plymouth in return.
We have fantastic produce markets like the one based at Crocadon, near St Mellion.

Each month over 45 stallholders display their produce and creations in their courtyard and their venue has become renown for its high quality monthly mainly indoor producer markets. The next one is on Saturday 21 September. Why not pop along and see for yourself.
Crocadon is just 15 minutes from Plymouth and held on the third Saturday of every month. Offering fresh local meats, fish, vegetables as well as sweet treats of all kinds. The fair also boasts a wide range of arts and craft producers for you to look around at your leisure. There is a café onsite has cake and drinks on offer, with inside and outdoor seating available.
Just a hop across the Tamar Bridge you can combine a visit to the produce market with a stop in at Saltash Town Centre.
The quality and variety of shops in Saltash is fantastic and it is possible to source many items without the hustle and bustle of a large Department Store.
It is also possible to enjoy the fantastic beaches at Whitsand Bay whether in the summer or for a leisurely walk. Most people travel to Whitsand Bay via the Torpoint Ferry. Why not stop in at Torpoint to enjoy the superb shops and cafe's in the town.
I mentioned a lot about the fabulous Mount Edgcumbe Country Park in South East Cornwall in my last column.
This is only one of many of the fantastic historic homes within a short distance of Plymouth. Visitors are also welcome to Antony House, Port Elliott, Cotehele and Pentillie.
Take a short trip on the passenger ferry from Stonehouse to Cremyll and a pleasant walk along the South West Coast path provides a scenic route to the fantastic villages of Millbrook, Kingsand and Cawsand.
You will find fantastic places to eat or enjoy some refreshment in all of these villages.
South East Cornwall has become a holiday destination for visitors who return regularly year on year.
South East Cornwall is such a beautiful part of the country and also offers so much for our neighbours from the City across the Tamar.
This is why I am so proud to be the Member of Parliament for this beautiful part of the world.
