Picnic Benches by Lostwithiel Bridge closed
Clarification from Lostwithiel Town Council on their facebook page 1st May
"We are sorry if we have caused any confusion regarding the specific area that was closed on Wednesday. It is only the picnic benches on the area just off the parade that have been closed at the request of the Police. These benches are in a lovely location and it has been hard for some people to maintain a social distance there. All the parks and other benches in Lostwithiel (excluding the play areas and the skatepark) remain open for use by residents.
Please enjoy our wonderful large parks and riverside, whilst out for your daily exercise and trips to the shops."
