The east side of the Fowey and Lerryn rivers use 01208-87XXXX phone numbers, and PenPol too, all coming from the exchange at Lostwithiel. The line lengths are very long, and the DSL broadband support is terrible, or unobtainable - and due to the physics of copper phone lines, will remain so for the foreseeable future.

So a few business users have come together to install a wireless broadband network, bringing the DSL services available in Golant (based off the Fowey exchange) to our users. We're getting 2Mbps Internet service, and typically 32Mbps between ourselves!

This service is run by the community, for community business users. The installation costs are too expensive to be for everyone, but for those of us who _need_ to be connected, it's worth it!

- Lerryn Memorial Hall Lerryn Memorial Hall | Edit
Lerryn, Lostwithiel, Cornwall, PL22 0QB.
Map
Originally built in 1926 as a village institute, the previous hall was extended in the late 1950s and dedicated to all those from the village who gave their lives in the First and Second World Wars. The hall was always the centre of Lerryn village life but by the end of the 20th century had become somewhat dilapidated. It was therefore decided to raise funds for a complete rebuild in time for the new millennium. Under the leadership of Francis Allfrey this was achieved using funds raised by the people of Lerryn and by outside funding.
In June 2000 the hall was reopened by the Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall and re-dedicated to the memory of those who gave their lives and continues to be known as the Memorial Hall.
The new building includes a snooker room with a full sized snooker table, a large hall with a stage for performances, a well equipped kitchen and three store rooms and also has an upstairs committee room. It is licensed for public performances.
In the main hall is a projector and screen for showing films, stage lights and stage curtains and plenty of chairs and tables. As well as film presentations the hall is used on a regular basis for Pantomimes and Revues and other public performances, for the Lerryn Parent and Toddler Group, Short Mat Bowls Competitions, Yoga classes, Lerryn W.I. meetings, Lerryn Art Group, Lerryn Produce Association, Jumble sales, various committee meetings and for parties and weddings.
Our Memorial Hall is an amenity of which we are all proud !
To book the Hall please ring Helen Pearce on 01208 872633.
Charges are as follows:

£7/hour for the use of the main hall,
£4/hour for the use of the projector and
£5/hour for the use of the committee room.

With no constitution, rules, regulations, subscriptions, fees, funds or premises, it consists solely of a committee of eight members who organise two boating events on the river each year. The committee meets irregularly at The Ship Inn to discuss, with adequate lubrication, the complexities of organising the world famous British Seagull Outboard Motor Race around Christmas time and the “Summer Solstice” event in mid-summer. Any money raised is donated to the RNLI, village organisations and local charities.

For more info check the Calendar pages nearer the date.
