Work Placement @ Stranger Collective – Day Two

Back in the office at 9.30am today and I was given two projects to get me through the day.

First, to research three ice cream makers in Cornwall for a feature in Beach Retreat’s Summer Issue. These were Helssett Farm, Daisy’s Farmhouse Icecream and Jersey Cow’s Icecream.

Second, to research events in Cornwall running over the summer months, again for Beach Retreat’s Summer Issue for their events page. I trawled through pages of Cornwall Event Pages making a big list of what’s happening in July and August, then chose the best ones and wrote them into short paragraphs.

After dinner I was then asked to research into apples. Yes, you heard correct. Ironically, I had also just eaten an apple. This was for something Helen is working on for 26 Flavours of Cornwall. I just did some basic research into the link between Cornwall and apples, the many meanings/symbol of the apple, and the use of the word ‘apple’ in well-known phrases and literature. It’s safe to say that I am now quite knowledgable about apples.

Very sleepy after today. Still no progress on the case study, but I’m sure these blog posts will come in handy when I have energy to do some more work over the weekend.
