What can you buy in Liskeard?

What a fantastic turn out! In the end we had over 40 people (30 people at the 10am meeting, and the rest as and when they could get away from other commitments) cash mobbing this morning.

There was lots of laughing and excitement (not helped by having to pose for photos for the Cornish Times and the Cornish Guardian making us feel a little self-conscious!) And all wearing something red. Including a hat band, a rather splendid handkerchief, t-shirts, jumpers, a few scarves, and trousers!

If people stuck to the £10 (quite a few went way over!) that’s a minimum of £400 that went in our local shops this morning. Plus we’ve opened a few people eyes about just what is available…

Now, we’re not claiming that some of this money wouldn’t have been spent on a normal Saturday morning in Liskeard anyway, but people really did make the effort including people who don’t generally shop local, people who decided to treat themselves and spend more than they would normally, and children who had extra pocket money to take part!

There was some thing’s that came up time and time again, so we won’t list all of those – they included pasties (naturally), saffron buns and other cakes, bread and baguettes, newspapers, vegetables (including a range of local and/or organic), fruit, takeaway coffees and greetings cards. But here for your delight and delectation, is a list of just exactly what you can get in Liskeard, in an hour!

    Fantastic news the cash mobbing went so well! Actually it was The Cornish Times photographer David Hambly capturing the moment at 10am not The Cornish Guardian! However it didn’t seem to put anyone off spending their money in the town centre ! A brilliant idea 🙂

      I shall change that forthwith! So sorry for the mistake. Yes it was brilliant fun 🙂 Thanks for great coverage yesterday.

        The Cornish Guardian’s photographer was also there – pics and a full write-up will be in this Wednesday’s paper.

        Congratulations on a great event!
