In case you're thinking of visiting - the town is very much alive ! All of the pubs and most of the restaurants are open - and there is loads going on.

More than 50 events are listed for the next week alone on:

Misty Winters Day In St Ives

A New Year Resolution - I'm going to try to compile a St Ives Photo Diary for the whole of 2012.

I know how much many readers of my blog enjoy my pics - and thanks for all the nice comments.

St Ives - Wonderful Start To 2012

 New Year 2012 - Fireworks - St Ives Cornwall

The New Year in St Ives got off to a wonderful start- with a fantastic firework display on St Ives Harbour.

Organised by St Ives Chamber Of Commerce and funded by donations from local businesses - including a substantial amount from St Ives Harbour Hotel.

The display was intended as a Thank You to the people of St Ives for all the support that they've given to local businesses over the last year.

The Chamber also raised funds for and organised the Christmas trees and lights along Fore Street and through to Tregenna Hill.

I'm a member of the Chamber committee - and can tell you that we've already started planning for next Christmas and New Year - hoping to organise even bigger and better events for the town.

Plus one or two other events during 2012 - more news here in due course.
