Thurstan Hoskin

Thurstan was born, bred, raised and educated locally until he attended university in Norwich.  He worked in industry and abroad (including a couple of scrap metal ventures in Canada) before training as a solicitor.  He finds that experience valuable.  He trained in Truro and Wiltshire before opening a new office in Redruth in 1979.

When the office first opened, Thurstan did everything that came in through the door but subsequently specialised in conveyancing and eventually further specialised in commercial conveyancing and other business matters.

He enjoys dealing with persons starting a business or taking on a lease for the first time who need detailed advice and support.  He also enjoys dealing with experienced business people who know the ropes and what is important to them.

Thurstan is married to Jill, who used to work as a part time secretary for the Wills Probate & Tax Department.  They have one daughter.  He is delighted that she has returned to Cornwall and taht her daughter was born here.  He is interested in sport having played rugby at Wadebridge, London Cornish and Truro among others.

He still runs/plods, swims and plays golf with no distinction at all.  Jill plays with much greater success and, until September 2016, they both sailed.  Apart from outdoor activities (gardening not being one of them) he enjoys reading a general mix ("The Hitch-hiker's Guide to the Galaxy" and "Proust") and listening, or sometimes sleeping to, music.

Thurstan is a member of the Red River Singers and the St Agnes Writing Group.  He is also associated with the Rotary Club of Redruth and is a member of the Redruth and District Chamber of Commerce (of which he is a past president) and St Agnes Chamber of Commerce.

He has written a detective novel, which he hopes to publish in the near future.
