Porthleven ice cream parlour uses Woolworths wood

A Porthleven ice cream parlour has re-launched with a little help from Falmouth’s old Woolworths store.
It could have proved something of an ice cream headache for Nauti But Ice owners Lucy and David Page, but a refit over the winter went without a hitch.
The parlour and coffee shop now boasts additional seating, using wood reclaimed from the stockroom of the former Woolworths in Falmouth.
Mrs Page said they had put “a great deal of thought” into sourcing materials for the work, such as from Woolworths.
“It's nice to think that it's still serving a great purpose,” she said. “We worked with Porthleven based designers Boex Solutions and some fantastic local tradesman to produce a great interior.”
To mark the re-launch the ice cream parlour provided customers with a selection of their home made cakes and coffee.
“We received great help from local suppliers, whose support of the event allowed us to raise money for the RNLI,” added Mrs Page.
The parlour sells Roskilly's organic ice cream while the coffee shop is “committed to serving fantastic coffee.”
“A significant part of the refit concentrated on new barista equipment,” said Mrs Page, adding: “Fingers crossed the rain stays away this season.”
