Unless more people start using the village shop there is a strong possibility it will close. In recent years sales have dropped due to increased local competition. If those that would like it to continue just spent a few pounds in the shop each week it could reduce the risk of closure. If it closes the village also loses its Post Office, which is now very important for banking services, the Tea Room and a social place to buy your newspapers, magazines and groceries.
The Vintage Bike Ride this year will start from the village picnic area opposite the church hall at 1.30pm on Saturday August 31. The Bar will be open in the Marquee along with music “Sinatra” style from Gary and a live band new to the village “The Landing Party”. Registration with souvenir route maps starts at 1.30pm for the 3.30pm “Big Push” with Guy and the Marshalls. We are hoping to break the 100 Bike Barrier this year, so everyone counts.
Hot food will be available from 5pm with cakes, savouries, soft drinks, bar drinks. Hot drinks available right through.
Join in the fun and dress for the occasion. “Wacky” trophies by John and Alan for: Best attired lady; Best attired gent; Best attired Junior; Best “Jazzed up” Bicycle; Best vintage bike. Enjoy the laughter, music and chat. We’ll all be there to raise funds for the village Christmas Lights.
If there is sufficient interest; the St Erth Church Hall (Old School Room) will have a trial cinema evening with the potential to have a regular film show once a month throughout the winter. If anyone is interested please contact Joyce Darvell 01736 757169. Similar events take place in other village halls and refreshments are served which helps make it into a village social evening.
On Saturday the Farmers Market is in the chapel hall from 10am to 12 noon, selling fresh local vegetables,
free range eggs, artisan bread, locally produced organic beef, pork, sausages and bacon, home-made pasties, pies and quiches, delicious cakes, flowers, plants, cards and craft. Then enjoy a cup of coffee and a chat with this week's refreshment hosts; the St Erth Feast Committee.

This Sunday August 18, 9.30am Service of the Word (No Eucharist).
Last Sunday's worship was led by Mr Tony Jasper with Mrs Pamela Williams the organist. After reading a psalm together, Tony read from Luke ch.11 v 1-8 - Jesus' teaching on prayer.  Tony explained how the Lord’s Prayer is made up of 7 sections like the rainbow and the Lord’s prayer is a prayer for all times and occasions - in good times to thank God for all His provision and in bad times when we can think of nothing to say we have the Lord’s prayer reminding us that He is with us always.
  • This Sunday’s worship with Lasers for young people will be led, God willing by Rev M Lumbers.  Everyone most welcome at 11am.
  • Tuesday Morning Prayers in the Chapel kitchen from 9.15-10am, please come and join with us in prayer time.
  • Next Tuesday August 20 there will be a games afternoon; and
  • on Tuesday August 27 there will be a bingo afternoon.
The Club meets in the St Erth Church Hall (Old School) every Tuesday from 2pm to 4pm; it only charges £1.50, which includes tea and biscuits. New members and visitors always welcome.
