"I’ve just got a job with a company based in Swindon, I’m working from home so it’s really useful for me that our house has space for an office and high speed broadband for data and video conferencing. It just wouldn’t be possible otherwise."
"I can get the bus to work down into St Austell, it comes right through the village and stops just by the lake. Of course I could cycle, in fact I’m thinking of getting an electric bike to help with the hill on the way back. If I really need a car to go somewhere then I book one through the car club. Maybe we’ll get an electric car next time, we’ve got a charging point at home after all."
