Remembering Matt Cranch

On the 25th of April it will be the first year anniversary of loosing a very dear friend of ours Matt, aka Wiggles. Wiggles sadly lost his life last year in a tragic stunt show accident and is missed more and more each and everyday. It still doesn't feel true that he is gone and thinking about that shocking day and hearing the awful news i still can't believe that it is true. 

Sadly 1 year on things are still not the same and everyone that knew him is missing him so much. 

To celebrate such a good person last night we held a Volkswagen and classic car Cruise through Newquay town and Watergate Bay to celebrate his life and the place where he lived and touched so many lives.

So many people turned out to support his cruise that there wasn't a single space left in any vehicle. Leaving St Columb Major our first stop was Watergate Bay to enjoy the sunset and a place where he used to work and live and was rather emotional. The cruise continued on into town and whilst driving through the town center of Newquay heads were turning as we went past. Beeping our horns and playing Matts favorite music loud. Passing the Central pub in Newquay the customers outside cheered as we past and made us feel special to feel part of the convoy, several people cheered and waved and stopped to see what was going on when we drove past, hopefully Matt was looking down on us smiling at all the lovely cars.
