We had a wonderful turnout for a real red letter day enjoyed by villagers and visitors with the highlight being our most gracious guest of honour, Alex Polizzi.

Sorry it's been a bit quiet on the blog this week I've been desperately trying to find a pair of killer heels for tomorrow's grand opening.
Only joking! At my age I'd only fall over. The truth is we have been so busy since we started trading last week I have not had time to write here.
This is what we have learnt this week: Newspapers are challenging not only because they arrive before 7.30 am but because orders are never consistent, on Wednesday we received the Bodmin edition of the Cornish Guardian and so our edition arrived a day late. Those picking up papers early will know that Jane Sloan and Margie Lundie are coping admirably with everything that is being thrown at them.
We also know that already people love our shop, small but stocking a huge variety of goods and a good selection of treats for people to enjoy. Our customers are all ages and I believe enjoy being served by friends and neighbours who are our trusty volunteers. We want more volunteers so if you have a spare couple of hours a week or a fortnight do join us.
And so to tomorrow, we are so excited that Alex Polizzi is giving up her precious time to come along and see what we have achieved and do the honours of cutting the ribbon to officially mark the occasion. Please join us it won't be the same without you. I better not forget my camera!
We had a really good morning....don't forget we open from 9-12 noon tomorrow and 8 am - 6 pm Monday to Friday. Keep shopping! See more photos on the Gallery
Three PCSO's came to see what we were up to this morning, only two in the photo as the third one couldn't wait to try the coffee!
