Visit from the Chancellor of the Exchequer

George Osborne visiting Cornish Crabbers May 2015

Early this week the Cornish Crabber factory was visited by George Osborne and the local Conservative candidate Scott Mann. On the day the Conservative Party spoke about new small business initiatives the Chancellor visited several companies in the area.

During his visit, which lasted about  an hour, he spent time in the Glass Shop where he used the electric hoist to pop a Shrimper 21 hull from its mould. Also had a cup of tea with some of the guys in the Rigging Shop before painting some Shrimper planking in the paint shop.
