Celebrating 25 years this year we have a great Cornish business, Bromleighs . When you think 'made in Cornwall' I confess I often imagine tasty food and drink or perhaps art and crafts, but there are so many other businesses tucked away in our fair county that have been thriving for years and deserve the spotlight. With a perfect mix of great product and bespoke commissions, Bromleighs create handmade lighting including pendants, wall and table lights. Although their range is wide I love the industrial style of the wrought metal switches and fixtures. That heritage feel has meant you can see their wares in historic homes up and down the country, often favoured by the National Trust. They take a raw material, such a locally sourced copper, pewter or brass and turn it into beautifully finished switches and sockets. These little details are what makes a house feel complete, considered even. They speak of quality and for a historic home, won't jar with the surrounds.

Many West Country hotels and B&Bs still receiving analogue, in fact, two-thirds of tourism businesses in the West Country have televisions that risk going blank when the region switches to digital later this year – at the height of the summer tourist season. Latest research from Digital UK, the independent switchover body, reveals that only 40% of hoteliers and B&B owners across the region have fully converted televisions in all guest rooms – up from 27% in January 2007. A quarter of the respondents (25%) had partly switched to digital and more than a third had analogue only. The research in the West Country region also found that: • However, 44% of those surveyed in the West Country believe they are fully prepared for switchover or have upgrading to digital well underway. • Only 12% have yet to make any plans. • Holiday lets were the most likely to be fully converted and holiday and caravan parks the least likely to have taken steps.
