ONE of the country's leading entrepreneurs dropped in to St Ives at the weekend to wish one of the town's most successful businesses a happy birthday...well almost.

The look-alike Richard Branson was invited to help staff at leading property specialists, movewithus, celebrate the firm's 10th anniversary.

The company also used the day, which included a party for staff, to open its new state-of-the-art offices at Grant Hall, St Ives, officially.

The Branson look-alike helped Robin King (pictured), one of the founding directors of movewithus, unveil the new 20,000sq ft office.

The company, which last year was the overall winner in The Hunts Post Business Awards, works in partnership with more than 1,000 independent property agents, providing a business network that helped sell more than £35billion of property in 2005.
