New owner at News & Trader


An advertising directory that covers Truro is under new ownership.

The Truro News and Trader has been acquired by Chris Forrest of CF Media LTD.

The monthly directory was purchased from Debbie Dewar of News and Trader Publications, who will continue to run the Newquay News and Trader.

Prior to setting up CF Media LTD, Forrest was co-founder and MD of Newquay-based Apple computer specialist CTS, which he sold in 2012.

He said “I am delighted to have been able to acquire the Truro News and Trader. When I knew the business was for sale I immediately started negotiations and a deal was struck soon after.”

The company’s office has now moved from its original base in Newquay, to River Street in Truro.
