It’s December already and it’s wet and cold! Still you can’t have it all I suppose. Liskeard’s been pretty busy these past few months. Mary Portas has well and truly done her stuff and I believe injected a shot of real positive thinking into the town. It’s so encouraging to see new shops opening up in the town centre and Fore St. is looking so much healthier. Personally, I feel that Aldi should have taken advantage of the Eurospar building to bring many more shoppers into the town, but hey what do I know. Maybe the ample car park behind wasn’t big enough. At least they will give the largest supermarket in town something to think about (let’s hope it’s their prices!). The lights are up for Christmas, and there is a real Christmassy feel around Liskeard. Beddoes Fruit & Veg Shop is looking really colourful this year, as is Continental Fruits. Both businesses serve up some fantastic seasonal and exotic fruit and veg for the big day.

Reflect your brilliance

at Andrew Keirl Opticians

Independent optician Andrew Keirl is the local Maui Jim specialist optician. Maui Jim sunglasses were born on the Hawaiian island of Maui nearly 30 years ago. These remarkable lenses not only have the finest polarising filters but also have exclusive technology that replaces and renews the natural colours that are dulled by traditional sunglasses. Andrew believes that sunglasses should be about protection, comfort and an enhanced visual experience. Maui Jim delivers just that. The difference is impossible to miss. Put on a pair of Maui Jims and instantly glare is gone and the harmful UV radiation that can damage eyes is absorbed. The world’s true colours come shining through like never before - bolder, richer, crisper and with more contrast and clarity. These benefits are a result of Maui Jim’s patented, colour infused Polarized Plus®2 lens technology at work in an optically correct, distortion-free lens that’s also available in prescription. Andrew is the proprietor of Andrew Keirl Opticians in Liskeard and is passionate about eyecare and along with his team, is proud to be an independent Optician. Andrew is pictured with his practice team, Tracy, Julie and Laura.

Come along and try a pair of Maui Jim sunglasses today! Liskeard 5
