Minibus trip to Lerryn Post Office

February 5th 2017

Since Tuesday 24th January 2017, the Lerryn Area Minibus has been trialling a weekly post office trip to Lerryn for Lostwithiel residents

Every Tuesday, we run a trip to Bodmin and on the way back we stop at the surgery to pick up prescriptions for the Lerryn residents.  It made sense to trial the “post office run” at the end of those trips.

If you want to use this service, just meet the minibus driver in the car park outside the doctors’ surgery between 12.15 and 12.30pm.  Please bear with us, as the roadworks in Bodmin mean we cannot guarantee our punctuality.   The minibus will return to Lostwithiel as soon as passengers have concluded their transactions at the post office. There is no need to book in advance.

We hope to go on doing this as long as there is a demand for such trips. The aim is to provide a service to the community, so we are charging a token return fare of just 50 pence.

If you have any queries, please contact Ann Henderson, Chair of LAMA, on 01208 873428

Cornwall prepares for strong wind and heavy rain

February 2nd 2017

Please see below press release from Cornwall Council

With the Met Office forecasting that Storm Doris will bring strong winds and heavy rain to Cornwall later today (Thursday) and during Friday, Cornwall Council is warning residents to be prepared and take precautions where necessary.

 The latest information from the MET Office and the Environment Agency is for the wettest weather to move across Cornwall later today, with the highest winds expected on Friday.  There is currently a Met Office weather wind warning in force, for Friday, with the risk of high winds across coasts and hills and large waves along southern coasts. 

Between 10 and 40mm of rain are expected to fall on parts of Cornwall on Thursday, with Gale Force 8 winds expected early to mid afternoon, before the wind slowly eases by early evening.

There are two peaks of strong winds expected on Friday –the first arriving late morning to mid-afternoon, followed by the second peak during mid-afternoon to early evening.

 The winds will be at their strongest across the Isles of Scilly and the southern coasts of Cornwall, and around hills during these peaks, ranging from Gale Force 8 up to Gale Force 9 on occasions, with gusts of between 50-65mph,and possibly up to 70mph.  These winds may cause some travel disruption – particularly on exposed bridges and high sided vehicles, as well as potential disruption to air and ferry travel  There is also the risk of damage to trees and potential disruption to power supplies, as well as the risk of injury from flying debris , such as bins, bins, fences and trampolines and temporary structures.

The strong winds are likely to be accompanied by large waves, especially around the Isles of Scilly, and the southern coasts of Cornwall, which may present a hazard to the public on beaches, sea walls, piers and promenades, especially at high tides, plus on coastal roads and railways, due to wave spray and possible overtopping.

“We are advising members of the public to drive according the prevailing conditions and not to take unnecessary risks” said Geoff  Brown, the Council’s Cabinet Member for Homes and Communities.  “We would also ask people to avoid walking along the coast path and by cliff edges during the strong winds unless absolutely necessary.

“While we recognise the fascination of watching the large waves people can put themselves in danger by standing too close to quay sides and harbours, please keep a safe distance from the sea as large waves can travel a considerable distance up the shoreline”.

All the agencies are monitoring the situation closely and are on standby to act if the situation deteriorates.  

As neither the Council nor the Environment Agency has a statutory duty to provide sandbags, anyone whose property is prone to flooding should ensure they have a supply of sandbags ready to protect their home or business should they need to.  Local communities are also encouraged to check with vulnerable neighbours in case they need help with obtaining flood protection materials.  Residents are also advised to check that their drains are clear of leaves and blockages.

Sandbags can be obtained from builders merchants, DIY and hardware stores.

For further advice on preparing for flooding is available on the Cornwall Council website at www.cornwall.gov.uk/flooding


The Great Winter Nurdle Hunt

January 30th 2017

This coming weekend, the 3rd-5th February is the Great Winter Nurdle Hunt
What on earth is a Nurdle, you may ask?
Nurdles are small plastic pellets which are a raw material in the manufacture of plastic products. 
They are being found in large numbers in the marine environment and are harmful to marine life.
The Great Nurdle Hunt is being organised in collaboration with a number of organisations including Greenpeace and the Marine Conservation Society.
They are asking people to visit a beach over the coming weekend and keep an eye out for nurdles and record them to provide evidence to the UK Government of the scale of this issue.
For further information, see the above poster
