Shop owners in Penryn are being invited to a meeting with the aim of setting up a new ‘Shop Watch’ scheme, similar to the well known ‘Pub Watch’.

The meeting, with scheme organisers Peter Wemyss and Ian McCabe and a representative from the police, will be held in the Town Hall at 9.30am on Thursday, July 24.

They hope to have a ‘banned from on, banned from all’ policy for shoplifters in the town.
