Introducing our Marketing Executive Sophie Curtis
THE GREENBANK’S new MARKETING EXECUTIVE…
Originally born in the South East of England, Sophie grew up in the seaside town of Southend-on-Sea before moving down to Cornwall for university at eighteen, replacing one coastline for another.
After completing her degree in geography, Sophie wasn’t quite ready yet to leave the Cornish coastal town she had come to call home and decided to stay for one more year, which of course turned into three (and ongoing).
As a marketeer, Sophie has developed her skills across a number of industries across the county, with previous experience including Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen, and Truro and Penwith College.
With a love of all things food and drink and a passion for hospitality and tourism, Sophie was excited to join the team at The Greenbank in June 2021.
WHAT MAKES FALMOUTH SO SPECIAL TO YOU?
Falmouth is such an amazing place. From the high street and Gylly beach to Pendennis Castle, I love everything about it. Because it’s a student town there’s always something going on, including lots of great live music and art exhibitions. While the town really shines in the summer, I love being here in the winter when everything slows down a bit. You’ll find plenty of snug cosy pubs to warm up by the fire in too.
WHERE WOULD YOU RECOMMEND AS THE ‘MUST-SEE’ PLACE FOR ANYONE VISITING CORNWALL?
Pedn Vounder is truly magical. I visited it one summer and was absolutely blown away by its beauty. No matter what time of year you visit this coastal spot you’ll be greeted by turquoise waves and golden beaches. If you’re a foodie though you can’t beat a trip to Porthleven. You’ll never be short on places to choose to eat there. And if you happen to visit in April, the Food Festival is out of this world!
WHAT CORNISH DELICACY IS YOUR FAVOURITE?
It’s got to be a big bowl of Fal mussels with Cornish cream and local wine. I could eat bowls upon bowls of the stuff. With some fresh bread or crispy chips, it’s truly the perfect summer dish.
FINALLY, CAN YOU SUM UP CORNWALL IN FIVE WORDS?
It’ll take your breath away.
