    Hi we are running a story about the celebrations of St Piran’s Day in March next year in BBC Countryfile Magazine March issue. Would it be possible to get the hires of the photograph on your website of the parade zig zagging with flags up the hill. We will of course credit you.
    Many thanks for your help,
