Jim was my god father and I have very vivid memories of his artwork even though it was probably over 30 years ago that I saw them. I still have a sketch he did of me and two of my brothers which is beautiful. Much love to everyone involved in this project and all the Tinley's. I really hope I can somehow get to see the exhibition.

Jim's work shows a picture of Porthleven that no longer exists. My wife's family were part of that world and we look forward to seeing pictures of her Uncle Joey Allen in a book!

Wonderful Exhibition… I found it all so calming walking around the old Warehouse Net Lofts, looking at all those characters faces captured in Jim’s work. Well done to you all 👏

I spent many summer holidays in Porthleven and while I'm too late for the exhibition I would love to be able to leaf through the book instead. Hope you get there, love from Wardy.
