The Mayor of St Ives, Cllr Phillip Pope cut the ribbon at the St Ives based courier company (The Courier Company Nationwide) as they opened for business in their brand-new premises.
As part of the grand opening, the mayor was delighted to accept a cheque on behalf of ‘The Youth Hardship Fund’, a local charity that aims to give young people access to Arts & Sports who may not usually get the opportunity to do so.
The mayor thanked The Courier Company Nationwide for their generous donation and said, ‘I am sure that the town of St Ives will get behind this newly located business once they get to know it’s lovely owners.’
Initially starting with one van out of a shared warehouse, The Courier Company Nationwide, formed by Richard England & Josh Arbon has grown into a 20-vehicle strong courier company, offering safe and secure same day deliveries both locally and nationally.
Richard & Josh said ‘We want to thank The Mayor for opening our new premises. It’s been an honour to support his amazing charity and we look forward to furthering our support in the town. Part of our key values of our company is to integrate with the local community. We are a local business, wanting to assist local people and companies!’
The company are expanding into St Ives creating new jobs and building partnerships with local businesses to help them get through these current challenging times.
