5. Greening Cornwall

In Cornwall today to meet up with the Programme Director for Green Cornwall at Cornwall Council, Steve Cirell.

Steve has always been passionate about his work and I remember him as a leading voice in local government during the battles over CCT, his expertise on Trading and Charging, PFI and more lately on Best Value.
