Red Arrows over Fowey Last Year


The Red Arrows are due to come to Fowey on Thursday, 19th August.  This year's display is in some doubt because of a fault discovered in the ejector seat mechanism of the Hawk Trainer aircraft.  All such aircraft, including the Red Arrows, have been grounded until the ejector seats have been inspected.  Hopefully, they will be cleared for flight before Fowey Regatta week.

New Research

August 1st 2010

Scientists have been working in the Fowey and Lerryn Estuaries on the problem of guano excrement from sea birds being deposited on boats

The World Leaves Fowey

August 1st 2010

The World leaving Fowey

The cruise ship, "The World", left Fowey at 8.30pm, last night ( 31st July) after a very successful visit.  Earlier in the day, Fowey Town Crier, Michael Penprase, welcomed passengers and crew to Fowey.


The World provided an impressive backdrop to the colourful sailing events that took place in the afternoon.

The passengers and crew of "The World" remarked on the friendly welcome given by the people of Cornwall.  As the cruise ship left, there was a carnival atmosphere with crowds waving from the Town Quay, balconies and boats.  The waves were enthusiastically returned by the passengers lining the rails as they took a last look at Fowey.  The Town Crier, aboard one of the Harbour Master's boats, added to the jovial atmosphere by calling out and ringing his bell.

Engine theft from St Winnow

July 30th 2010

      The police have informed us that a small 4hp outboard was stolen last week from a boat tied up off St Winnow. Once again the outboard was not locked so the message is clear -  Lock it or risk losing it -  email us if you want advice on outboard locks

Add this to the recent attempted theft of an outboard (again a small one) from the Cliff area and again from a floating boat and we have to assume someone is in the main river on the look out for unlocked outboards probably working at night.

Lerryn is probably the next logical target so be vigilant and remove or lock down any small engines.

Message from David Vipond

July 30th 2010

I would like to thank everyone who attended any of my leaving events and sent cards, good wishes, donations and gifts.  The love and affection shown to me through all this has been very moving and I am grateful to you all.  I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Lerryn School and hope to stay part of  this wonderful community for many years to come.

If you have been following the squirrel debate running in the Discussion Forum -----------------then you may be interested to hear of a plan to reintroduce red squirrels into parts of West Cornwall.

Paradise Park, in Hayle, is to be involved in an exciting new reintroduction program releasing captive bred Red Squirrels.

The squirrels will be released into the wild on the Lizard and across West Penwith.
