Swanpool Beach after the Valentine's night storm. Sand from the beach was swept over the road and car park, making the road impassable, volunteers were called for and Bernadette spent a sunny morning shovelling and wheelbarrowing the sand back to the beach. Marion Purvis captured the last barrowload being added to the pile.
James and Matt from Home Shopping always make time to have lunch together on a Friday. Since Valentine's Day was a Friday this year, the canteen ladies thought it would be fun to celebrate this 'bromance' by decorating their favourite table with scented candles, roses, and a bottle of non-alcoholic fizz.
"Ramp Up the Red" came to Falmouth on Friday. We had a raffle, a "guess how many steps our store manager takes" competition and asked our colleagues to ditch the green and go red. A total of £168.31 was raised on the day.
Bernadette spent Saturday morning with the Friends of Tregonnigie Woods, clearing the paths of mud and leaves and checking on the trees they planted in December

Asda Stock-ing Fillers celebrate completing the BF Adventure Santa Bootcamp Challenge. Penryn store entered two teams in the team building fundraiser and Bernadette, Emma, John and Matt stormed the course to take first place. They got a soaking in the adventure quarry, got muddy running cross country and worked well together as a team, well worth it to beat Niall and his Asda team!
