Padstow Town Council Mayor commented that “This is such a big step forward to providing help to the local community especially with the current financial situation a lot of people are finding themselves in. Meetings and conversations are continuing at pace with a variety of different services, for us to enable the community to gain as much information and help across numerous topics not just financial but health & wellbeing as well.”

The Town Clerk for Padstow Town Council added “The Council is grateful that the Wadebridge Food Bank has taken up our offer to accommodate this service and thank them for all they do for our communities.  Initially we will run this service from our Council Offices.  Eventually, we plan to move them across to the Core Building at the Lawns Car Park once we are sure we have the support we need to do so.”

Jacqui White, Project Manager for Wadebridge Food Bank commented that “We are delighted to be partnering with Padstow Town Council to help people access our services within the area. We have seen an increase in need and understand it may be difficult for people to travel to Wadebridge to access support.”
