SHOPS AND SERVICES OPEN
From a Kerno Forno facebook post 3rd Feb 2021
"Good news, Lostwithiel chums.
We’ve decided the time has come to bring back pizza Mondays outside the community centre. So, here’s the deal.
Starting from Monday 8th Feb, we’ll be outside the community centre, initially from 5-7pm, every Monday UNLESS the weather is really grim. Please keep an eye on social media and for the blackboard on the verge outside. No blackboard means we are giving it a miss. "
Takeaway food is allowed within the lockdown rules and we are comfortable that we can cook for you safely, but please do try to come down on your own if you can and stick to the social distancing rules so that we don’t find ourselves inadvertently creating a crowd.
We’ve missed you and can’t wait to create a little slice of normality.
