St Agnes Boating In Sustainability Awards

The Spirit of St Agnes

St Agnes Boating has gained third place in their category in Cornwall’s Sustainability Awards.

John Peacock’s business was the only Scilly organisation at the ceremony, held in Falmouth on Friday, and was shortlisted in the Best Services group.

It’s after John developed bespoke software to allow his passengers to book online and share ‘special’ boat services.

That’s more sustainable because the company saves fuel and passengers reduce their travel costs.

John says he’s proud that his relatively small operation did so well in the face of such strong competition. There were 100 applicants in total and John says the event was bigger than he had expected with over 200 attendees.

Useeka Travel from Bodmin won the category.
