Coronavirus Edition

This edition of the Newsletter was produced in March to let you know that  the Townshend Village Hall Trustees had decided to close the Hall in order to protect its users from infection from the virus.

Bookings are currently suspended until we can re-open under government guidance.  the latest Health and Safety recommendations can be found below.

Health & Safety Requirements

Please read the information below which may be of help.

Keep safe, well and in touch.


Townshend Support Group

If anyone is at any time isolating and is lonely and needs assistance, there are several people in the village who are happy to get shopping, collect medication, newspapers etc or who will just phone you for a chat. Please don’t hesitate or worry about asking for any sort of help and support. Please call Sarah Chapman anytime on 01736 850287 or 07842201950 or email sarah@davidchapman.org.uk; or contact Sarah Lane on 01736 850933 or email Sarahlane.gb@gmail.com.

This offer of support is for anyone who asks. Please feel included in this offer wherever you live.

Berryman’s Farm Shop will remain open and they sell a good range of foods (milk, eggs etc) as well as fruit and vegetables. There will be a delivery service from Berryman’s Shop, phone Steve on 01736 850012; or 7887580239; or email him on smlberry@hotmail.com. If anyone is willing to help with this please let Sarah Chapman know.

Here is a list of events usually held in the Hall but which will not now run until further notice.

The Saturday Lunches are cancelled until further notice. This is the most sensible option to protect the cooks, servers and customers. We will continue to send out the Newsletter and this will let you know when the lunches are starting again. We are sorry to disappoint and very much look forward to seeing you soon.

Thanks from the Lunch Team.

Film Nights.

C Fylm have cancelled all Cornwall screenings for the foreseeable future. Apologies again and we will let you know via the Newsletter when it is safe to re-start.

Groups, Events and all other private hire.
