One of our members, Stephen Chidgey, has long been something of a role model for Cornish tourism, having been a regular winner in the Cornwall, Southwest and Visit England awards since 2014. His self catering cottage The Old Barn in Tregonetha, boasts a range of eco features that include a ground source heat pump, solar panels, rainwater harvesting and electric charging points.

As someone who believes wholeheartedly in a sustainable, ethical approach that provides customers with an outstanding value-for-money service, he has now gone one step further. Stephen has long been a supporter of Cornwall Air Ambulance – a vital community charity that helps visitors as well as residents when they get into difficulty. He has now introduced the opportunity for visitors to The Old Barn to make donations that will help this life-saving local charity. Not only that, Stephen has also pledged to match guest contributions from his own pocket!
