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



Shops OPEN 

Bellamama Deli - OPEN

Stock update 24th March 2020 from Facebook :

Stock update on some of your essentials from the Deli this morning:-

Local Organic Free Range Eggs are now back in stock.

From later this week I hope to be able to offer bags of cake baking and bread making flour.

I can't get hold of yeast at all, not even for my own bread making. I'll keep trying and will let everyone know if I can hold of any.

Pasta, tomato pasta sauces and Biscotti (not necessarily 'essential') are also now well stocked up.

I'm baking every day (except Sunday) and will continue to do so. Don't forget my bread is also available at the Puddle Farm Shop in Lanlivery.



Co-op - OPEN

 Message from Duncan Evans via facebook on 1st April 2020

Hi everyone,

Quick update from Coop
*Please note the following are company directives and not specific to Lostwithiel. Please don't direct any grievances to employee members*

Coops are being fitted with perspex screens at the till to provide added protection for both customers and staff. With thousands of Coops we do not have a timescale at this stage

Limits are to increase to £45 for contactless payments as from 2nd April

For stores with an ATM, the cashback option on the tills will be removed until further notice

To reduce risk to both customers and staff, the preference is for Lucky Dips.
Lotto & Scratchcards have been highlighted as a non essential items.
*Please note before purchasing a Lottery item, we will be unable to pay out prizes until further notice*
Alternatives are available online, or via Smartphone Apps

All baskets/handles and trolley handles are sprayed with sanitizer between customers.
The sanitizer needs to air dry for up to 5 minutes for the best results. Customers may experience the odd damp handle once baskets are returned to the entrance
(we also santize other areas, such as door handles, railings etc)

We are unable to put any stock back for anyone, this includes employees

We will continue to trade 7am to 8pm everyday until further notice. Staff will continue to work beyond 8pm to complete additional tasks, such as inventory checks and sanitizing shelving

These continue as follows:
Mon to Sat 8am to 9am
Sun 10am to 11am
Please try to avoid these times so we can focus on these groups

We have been monitoring stock levels daily and are pleased to announce restrictions have been removed from the following sections :

In Store Bakery
Pet Food
Easter Eggs


Due to limited availability the following restrictions still apply
Eggs - 1 item
Everything else - 2 items
(Multiple purchase offers will be honoured - eg 4 for £7... subject to availability)

We will continue to monitor stock levels daily and provide updates accordingly

More updates to follow

Help with Schoolwork

Michelle Nineham posted the following on Facebook on March 18 at 7:36 PM ·

"It’s rare for me to post something here but I am happy to help!

While the world begins homeschooling/remotely/digitally educating our children, if you need assistance with understanding something that has been assigned for your child, or if you need more resources, just give me a shout. I am happy to answer questions. If I don’t know the answer, I can try and find someone who does! My specialities are Science 11-16 and Psychology 16-18 but I’m used to teaching most secondary school subjects."
