The

Poundstock Packet

KERNOW BYS VYKEN!

Welcome to the Poundstock Packet website

The Packet is a free community magazine distributed to all homes in the parish of Poundstock, north Cornwall, England.

It is produced bi-monthly by a small team but many members of the community (both far and near) contribute articles and photographs.

This aim of this website is to give more up-to-date information in the Diary section, allow the publication of more photos and generally publicise Poundstock and Widemouth Bay.

Many of the previous copies of the Packet can be found on the Previous issues page. Details of the many organisations and services available in the Poundstock area are on the Directory page.

The Packet Extra page has articles that we did not have room for in the printed version of the Packet and also photos in colour that have appeared in the Packet in black and white.

The Gallery page has photos from the area including colour versions of many of those published in the Packet. If you have any pictures that you would like to display on this website please contact the editor.

There is a location map for Poundstock on the Poundstock page, this will be added to in the near future.

The Weather page shows the current weather conditions and recent readings for Poundstock.

This website is still being developed so if you find something that is incorrect or does not work please contact the webmaster.
