Boat and Engine Thefts an Update

November 20th 2009


Good news on this front - perhaps the notices stirred someone's conscience but following some "information" Bodmin Police raided a lock up in the Camleford area and found a large stash of stolen items including 2 engines stolen from residents in Lerryn - these have now been returned -  so do not let it be said that the police do not act on this crime !  There were also kayaks and some very large engines taken from boats in Rock where apparently the boats were being stolen taken round the coastline and cut loose once the engines could be taken off. One person has been arrested for handing stolen goods to date.

Anyone who had items stolen particularly around the Regatta Week should get in touch with Bodmin Police as you might be lucky.

The person dealing with it at Bodmin is DC Jeff Smith.

As mentioned previously Looe Police are going to come to Lerryn for an open meeting to discuss what can be done for next season to minimise this sort of Crime and we will publish details of the meeting in advance and hope as many of you as possible with boats will attend.

Thank You from Lerryn's "Weakest Link"

November 19th 2009

A big thank you to everyone who took part in my little competition and for watching me trying not to make a fool of myself on on Tuesday. I\'ve been going through all the entries today and believe it or not, of all 27 possibilities there was only one that nobody picked, and that was the one which actually happened! (Well, banking £1000 and getting voted straight off is pretty implausible, isn\'t it?) So far we\'ve raised £82 but friends and family up country have pledged more so I\'ll let you know the final amount in due course. Anyway thanks once again, and sorry for leading you all up the garden path, but if I hadn\'t dropped out so soon I\'d never have though of teasing you all with the competition, nor would Cornwall Hospice Care be any the better off!



Have you lost a black & white kitten?

November 18th 2009

At around 5.00pm today a black & white female kitten (approx 13 weeks old) was found on the road to Lostwithiel just beyond Lerryn View. It showed signs of being hit by a car and was taken to Pelyn Veterinary Surgery where it is currently being cared for. If the kitten belongs to you please contact the surgery as soon as possible as there is a limited time they can keep such cases, which, if not identified, get passed on to other agencies (RSPCA, etc.).

The telephone number for Pelyn Veterinary Surgery is 01208 872254


RNLI Autumn Coffee Morning

November 15th 2009

Despite the awful weather, last week's coffee morning in Lostwithiel raised £380 for RNLI funds. Our loyal band of supporters turned out as usual and it was a grand social occasion.

Thanks are due to all contributors, those who provided cakes, raffle prizes and other items, and to the committee members who ran the stalls and served coffee, tea and biscuits.

A big thank you again to all concerned for making this another successful event, so successful that cakes and other items were coming from all quarters (for those we may have missed a special thank you!).
