Watch yer outboards off St Winnow Point

April 9th 2009

Its been there a while now so most of you may have clocked it but as we are all getting boats back into the water take care to avoid the huge lump of tree firmly resting in the mud 200m before  St Winnow Point, its massive and is just the right height to take off your outboard if you are racing back from Angies as it sits not far enough under the water on the higher tides but is almost impossible to spot until you are on it even when its only a few inches under water.

Its almost in line with Brockles Quay and around 1/4 of the way across the river from the St Winnow Side  -  be warned its going to catch a few this summer.

Any chance of Charlie going down with his chainsaw to turn it into next years firewood ?

Dangerous doings for minibus drivers

March 27th 2009

Bernie Gibbons and David St. John, Lerryn minibus drivers and also LAMA committee members, have just spent a strenuous day practising emergency evacuation procedures for minibuses. See the Lerryn Photo Gallery on this website for the pictures. They both came back unharmed, but the next challenge is to ensure that our other drivers get a chance to learn the same things. Watch out for a smoke machine in the car park ... !

Princes / Wells Cottage - Can you Help

March 21st 2009

   The following message received at Lerryn.net can anyone shed any light on this - if so please just drop Gillian a quick email by clicking on her address below. If you prefer to call let us know as she has left her number with us.



I have been researching my family tree and my great, grandmother Edith Sobey (b 31/10/1870) appears to come from Lerryn (according to census entries).  I recently received her birth certificate and it notes 'Prince's Wells Cottage' as place of birth (although it then mentioned St Winnow - not sure if that was because they recorded the wider Parish).  I just wondered if anyone knows if this cottage still exists and whereabouts in the village it is.

Lerryn Produce Association News and Plant Sale

March 12th 2009





Lerryn Produce Association would like to publicly thank the relatives of George Keast for donating this magnificent shield to the Association.


The shield is to be awarded annually to the “Young Gardener of the Year” at Lerryn School. Encouraged by headmaster David Vipond we are jointly, with the school, organising a competition in which the whole school will take part concerning the growing of potatoes. The shield will be presented to the pupil who grows the heaviest weight of the crop and everyone will be encouraged to take their harvest home for all the family to share.


The Produce Association will continue to sponsor a digital photographic competition for the school, details will be finalised at the start of the summer term.


Finally may I remind you all that our Annual Coffee Morning and Plant Sale will take place on Saturday May 16th. at 10.30 in the Village Hall.


Besides the normal plant sale, coffee and biscuits are available plus a raffle and a scrumptious cake stall prepared by the W.I. Also this is a good time to pick up your Show Schedule so you have plenty of time to plan your entries. It is also the time to renew your membership or indeed join the Association. Membership is only £1. and it qualifies you to win many more prizes at the Show as well as generally supporting the Association.


Viv Turner our cup steward would be pleased if you could return any cups won in 2008 to her as soon as possible please.


Thank you for your support and happy gardening.
