PACKET Media and its marketing solutions service Local IQ has launched a new magazine at an event in Truro this afternoon.

Cornwall Home & Garden aims to feature exclusive homes to buy, with elegant interiors and grand garden designs.

Each edition will focus in on an exceptional hotel, a highly regarded restaurant and a prominent chef in the venues that showcase the best that Cornwall has to offer.

The magazine, which will be available in the spring and will be free to pick up, was launched at The Alverton in Truro on Thursday afternoon.

Guests at the event heard about the new magazine and its offer, had the chance to network and enjoyed some entertainment from magician Jon Martin.

A raffle was also held to raise money for Children's Hospice South West and the charity told guests about its work.
