Tina caught up with headteacher of Upton Cross Primary School and Chair of the CCET, Mr Clutsom (Mr C as he's affectionally known by the kids), and teachers and pupils from Pensilva, Delaware, Coads Green and Upton Cross Primary Schools ahead of their Enterprise Day at Sterts Theatre.  

Tina tried out the yummy smoothie - with secret ingredient!  Also the cupcakes were delicious - and there's lots of fabulous charms and friendship bracelets, cards, and crafts including mosaics.

Serena and Kevan from St Merryn win their dream wedding

13th June 2014

Win a Wedding winning couple
(L to R) Pirate FM's Holly Day, Kevan Ryan, Serena Hindmarsh, Rich Abbott from Abbotts Event Hire, and 3-year-old Marley.
A St Merryn couple have won a Cornish wedding worth over £20,000, thanks to the support of thousands of Pirate FM Listeners
Serena Hindmarsh and Kevan Ryan won Pirate FM’s Win a Wedding Competition in association with The Tregenna Castle Hotel in St Ives, and Abbotts Event Hire. 
Hundreds of couples from across Cornwall entered the competition to win an entire Wedding worth over £20,000, with products and services supplied by local businesses. The wedding will take place at the Tregenna Castle Hotel on Valentine’s Day 2015.
The competition culminated in a semi-final at the St Ives venue, where a number of finalist couples were randomly selected. These were then put to the public vote, with thousands of Pirate FM listeners voting through the Pirate FM Website.
Serena and Kevan, who have a 3-year old daughter called Marley, have been considering marriage for a long time:
“We were talking about just having a wedding in a registry office” Serena told Pirate FM.
“That was only because we thought we’d never be able to have a wedding like this."
Since appearing on Pirate FM, the couple have become local celebrities in their village.
“We feel famous in the small village of St Merryn” laughed Kevan.
Serena added: “Random people keep coming up to me in Padstow and telling me that they voted for us"
Neil Caddy from Pirate FM said: “Kevan and Serena are such a lovely couple, and we’re so glad that we’ve been able to make their dreams come true.
“Pirate FM loves being able to change people’s lives here in Cornwall, and we wish Kevan, Serena, and not forgetting young Marley a lifetime of love and happiness.”
Neil added: “We must also say a big thank-you to all the local suppliers that have supported the competition, and of course Tregenna Castle Hotel and Abbotts Event Hire, without whom none of this would have been able to take place."
Kevan added: "We’d like to say a big thanks to Pirate FM for giving us the opportunity, and for everyone that voted for us.”
