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.
Why not try the Pensioners Lunch or the evening "eat in or take away" Meal for £6.00.
On Saturday the Farmers Market is in the chapel hall from 10 am to 12 noon, fresh local vegetables, free range eggs, locally produced organic beef, pork, bacon and sausages, delicious cakes, home-made pasties, pies and quiches, flowers, cards and craft. Then enjoy a cup of coffee and a chat with this week's refreshment hosts; The St Erth Players.
