Saturday 17th February saw the opening of the New St Minver Post Office by Scott Mann MP for North Cornwall after a huge Community effort to raise the money needed to convert the old store room of the Perceval Institute into a fabulous, state of the art, Community Post Office.
It was back in October 2016 when the Perceval Institute Committee were made aware that the existing Post Office building was to be sold by the landlord. Determined not to loose this valuable community asset, the hub of the village, the Committee immediately set to work headed by Andrew Millington and Ted Rowe who have both done a sterling job in steering the project.
The Committee cannot thank everyone enough for the fantastic support and generosity shown to bring this project to fruition. It is worth pointing out that it is here to stay, it is ‘ring fenced’ and cannot be closed at the stroke of a Post Office pen as has happened in so many locations recently. Long may we enjoy this vital village amenity.
