The portacabin has arrived!

Neil and GillMany thanks to everyone for turning out to welcome the new community shop this morning. Be sure to watch both ITV Westcountry and BBC Spotlight this evening, with more coverage on Radio Cornwall, Heart FM and in tomorrow's Cornish Guardian.

Far too many people to thank them all - but Dave, Neil, Dave, Ken and others all know who you are! From putting up the bunting, to restoring the stock-proof fencing, there were lots of very important "unseen" things on the to-do list.

Particular thanks to Sarah Beaumont for making the shop sign, to Audrey Cooke for the teas and coffees, and to Cornwall Councillor Stephen Rushworth and to North Cornwall MP Scott Mann for their mabyn shop 1

Amazing skill by the delivery driver to drop the portacabin in place.

A huge amount of work still to do. Target date for the Grand Official Opening is Monday 1st October.
