Penryn traders look at starting 'Shop Watch' scheme

First published in News

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.

Before you can have a Shop Watch you need a Shop Find. I've lived near Penryn quite a few years but haven't found the shops yet, apart from a couple of chippies, a spar and a chemist.... What do you mean, "that's it!"?

Nice one Bazzer. I always believed the Penryn shoplifters plied their 'trade' in Falmouth. I suppose whilst in Penryn you could pinch a lizard or a clown's nose or an artful glass bowl... (I've now run out of shops)

Haha! Yes Moley, you could then make a nice sculpture from those three items and exhibit it in one of Falmouth's many galleries!

Grave robbers watch maybe. Being born and breed in Ryn I've never known the town so 'dead''. Went to buy a pasty on Saturday morning but rowes were not selling pasties or anything warm due to they fire so I stood outside rowes looking up and down for somewhere else to buy some warm food and nothing. Everything closed (chippys, Indian, Chinese or pippins) all closed. Infact not a single shop was. 'Twas a ghost town. What happened? Go to Redruth, Truro, Camborne , Falmouth or Penzance on a Saturday morning and they are buzzing with trade. Still love you Ryn.
