Andrew highlighted that for a lot of people, moving to Cornwall has always been an intention at the back of their minds but the pandemic has pushed forward those plans.
He said: “I think there’s an awful lot of people who have moved down here from out of county who probably have been here many times before on holiday, and the intention has been to move here eventually and the pandemic just sped that up.
“They’ve thought about it earlier than they would have done otherwise. They also have the technology to be able to work from home and do what they do from down here.
“‘When we get to 60 we will retire and go to Cornwall’. But there’s an awful lot of people who have gotten to their forties, mid-forties and early fifties who have just thought, ‘we can do it now. We can still do our work, let’s go’.”
