Hello from me at my kitchen table again! The team also all say hello from their 2 metre apart positions! The team are still busy, behind closed doors, processing orders, packing and posting all your orders.
Well - can you believe we are now in April! Plus I heard it may be getting a little warmer this weekend - yes please! A year ago, this week, we got handed the keys for our Guildford shop! There was a lot of travelling back and forth for Chris and Sam for a month, along with the Guildford team, in preparation for getting the shop ready to open on May 1st 2019! We will have to have a little celebration to acknowledge this big step for KMRC - once we can all congregate again! We are open 24/7 for orders through our website www.kernowmodelrailcentre.com but for phone orders - 01209 714099 - please note that we can only answer the phones from Monday to Friday, between 0930 and 1700. We are working with reduced staff so please bear with us! Thank you for your continued support during these uncertain times.

Things You Didn't Know You Didn't Know (or maybe you did?!)
This week we have started a FaceTime family quiz night! Every other night (Mum would have chosen every night but we need time to prepare our questions!) we have three rounds of 10 questions. Each couple (myself & my husband, my sister & brother-in-law, and my parents) come up with 10 questions for the other two teams to answer. Whichever team gets the most questions correct out of 20 is the winner of the night! We are tallying the points up so by the end of lockdown we will crown an overall winner! The prize is yet to be decided... But can I just say that my 'did you knows' have come in useful for a couple of questions so far! One of the questions asked was 'What is the national animal of Scotland?' As I wrote down 'Unicorn' I got the strangest look off my husband - haha! But I knew it was correct as I had featured it on here! He was going to write stag... I hope you have all found a way of being 'near' family despite having to keep our distance. Did you know... there are no words for "yes" or "no" in Irish. That would make it a lot easier to play the 'Yes & No' game! My 6 year old wanted to share another joke... Where does a General keep his Armies? Up his sleevies! Keep keeping safe
