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.
Following a highly successful first night last Saturday when “Fisherman’s Friends” was shown, the next film will be “Bohemian Rhapsody” on October 12. This was chosen from a list of popular titles by the audience and a similar method will be followed for the future. The intention is to have a monthly film on the second Saturday of each month during the winter months, at the St Erth Church Hall (Old School). Doors open 7pm, Film 7.30pm. Entry £3 for members, £6 including membership for the initial viewing. Membership forms are available from the village shop or from Joyce Darvell 757169.
St Erth Church Hall (Old School) 7pm Saturday 5th October 7pm cost £2:50 per person (teams of 4 max).
Food available in the interval: beef or veggie chilli for £3.50. Please let us know your team name and numbers and food required. Tel: 07968 692303/758233. Please bring your own drinks and glasses.
Proceeds to St Erth Church lighting fund.
