Good News Stories from Lostwithiel

A selection of services available, activities and offers of help.



Kerno Forno


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.


Duchy of Cornwall Nursery

  From their newsletter dated 5th May 2021:-

"Our new spring menus are now up and running and we have some incredibly tasty and seasonal dishes to enjoy. If you haven't already seen what is available, please click here to see the full menu. 

We are also delighted that from Monday 17th May we will be able to return to 'normal' with seating also available inside the cafe.

Please remember, as before bookings are not required for breakfast, lunch, cream teas, coffee and cake. You only need to book for our 'Duchy Nursery Afternoon Tea' which needs 48 hours in advance notice. Details available on our website.
