‘I have been visiting St Ives for several years now and the beauty and friendliness of the town has always left a lasting impression on me. Add to that St Ives prominence in the history of British Arts and culture, I’m made up to be here and part of the Town Council team. I’m looking forward to meeting promoters, artists and the wider community, to deliver and develop a rich, diverse and entertaining programme for all’ Kyle Percy.
