A new estate agency firm has found a home in Helston, in a former butchers.

Olivers Estate Agents will be based at the top of Meneage Street, in the former butchers and delicatessen that had been there since the 19th century, and run in recent years by the late Peter Oliver and his sister Sarah Perry.

After taking the difficult decision to close the business, following the death of her brother, Mrs Perry agreed for the new business to continue with the Olivers name.

Olivers Estate Agents Cornwall Ltd will now be owned and operated by Steve Critchard, Donna Bosustow and Sharon Kinsella, who all have previous experience in the industry.
