Camborne names new BID manager


Anna Pascoe has been appointed BID Camborne’s new manager.

Born and bred in the town, Pascoe is a successful business planner. As well as founding her own company, Make Me A Plan, she has previously worked the length and breadth of the county, with St Austell-based Ocean Housing and Cornish Orchards, just outside of Looe.

The former Camborne Science and International Academy pupil, who went on to a do a degree at the University of Southampton, says she is delighted to have the opportunity of continuing to implement the business plan that the BID team has put in place until 2022.

“I’m passionate about Camborne and all that it offers in terms of shops, services and heritage,” she said. “The challenge of being able to make a difference was simply irresistible. This is the place I grew up, and where I still live. I couldn’t be more proud of my community and I’ll be doing my very best to carry on the great work of my predecessor Mel and the board of directors.”

Anna is taking over from Mel Martin, who has been in post for nearly seven years.

“Mel has worked really hard for Camborne businesses and masterminded some significant improvements,” said chair of BID Camborne, Sharron Lipscombe-Manley. “Thanks to her, the website has become an engaging, dynamic source of information and the town and Christmas guides have really helped put Camborne on the visitor map.

“I wish Mel every success in what she goes on to do and welcome Anna, whose skills and commitment made her a very clear choice for the role.”
