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.
On Saturday the Farmers Market is in the chapel hall from 10am to 12 noon, selling fresh local vegetables, free range eggs, locally produced organic beef, pork, sausages and bacon, artisan bread, fantastic fresh fish, home-made pasties, pies and quiches, delicious cakes, flowers, cards and craft. Then enjoy a cup of coffee and a chat with this week's refreshment hosts; The Rainbow Youth Group.

The Village Shop, Post Office and Tea Room
If you are going on holiday, remember that you can order your currency at St Erth Post Office, with competitive exchange rates and guaranteed next day delivery.  Please let the staff know any ideas for goods that the shop should consider selling.  It now offers a low cost photocopying service in the shop, and free Wi-Fi to customers of the new tearoom.  Please drop in for tea, coffee, soft drinks and cakes and, of course, to do some shopping and support our enterprising village shop. If you don't use it, you'll lose it!

Moni and Brian White
are the proprietors of our village shop - please do your best to support them "Open All Hours" has nothing on our Shop and Post Office.  All you want for your weekly shop IS available.  Order the delicious, mouth watering,  fresh local meat from R.J Trevarthen,  Roskrow, Penryn, and it appears.  Ask for the brochure to see the huge variety available and choose the cuts you want.  Get your fresh vegetables, grown in local fields.  Whether it's rice or lentils, tights or plasters, flowers or Betty Stogs the choice is there.  And while you are there use the Post Office too!  Why go elsewhere to post a parcel, currency exchange, or just a stamp?  Advice is always available on the best services to use.

Drop in for a coffee or tea (and treat yourself to a cake), free use of the internet while there, and photocopy those important documents!
