Comments: "I have found Tickty-boo website so useful for local information. Having taken holidays in Cornwall for a number of years we decided to invest in our own holiday apartment. What a task getting everything you need! Tickty-boo to the rescue where all the local information for buying 'blinds' to a 'picture hook' are just a click away. Something that other people might find helpful, who are setting up a holiday home, is the 'Events' page this lists up to date current events happening in and around Newquay. I pass this information on to my guests via my web site. And not forgetting that emergency plumber or electrician you may need, or local emergency services if things go wrong. I would recommend this site to people visiting Newquay or residents living there. Thanks again Tickty-boo."

Comments: "Just to complement your excellent website. Was a previous Lifeguard with both St.Austell District Council [ Mawgan Porth Beach ] and Newquay District Council [ Towan,Fistral,Porth Beaches ] way back from 1969 until 1972. I can just sit in the comfort of my home in Australia and visit these and other Newquay beaches. Brings back so many memories, especially when I can see the Lifeguards vehicle and swimming flags on Mawgan Porth beach. Its like I was there yesterday. Thanks to technology and great websites like yours."
