WI get reupholstered!

March 4th 2009

WI members tried out their upholstery skills on Saturday 28th February at a one day taster workshop in the Memorial Hall. The successful workshop, run by St. Austell Upholstery, proved very popular with members who are all keen to carry on with their new found skills.


Tuition began on Health & Safety issues (of course!), as we were using very sharp tools, then proceeded to the need for good sound preparation of our projects - sturdy frames, tight webbing and plenty of stuffing!  Members' individual projects varied from antique chairs to blanket box tops and stools and the atmosphere was quite jolly, despite the intense concentration.

Re- William James 'Jim' Hollings - Can you Help ?!

February 17th 2009

We've had the following message at Lerryn.net and wonder if any of you can help.

Hi could anybody help with any information (however small) regarding a William James 'Jim' Hollings and his wife Cicely who ran the Old Forge Hotel in Lerryn.

I have become quite hooked on my family history. He was my grandfather (Cicely would have been his second wife).

Does anybody who still lives in Lerryn still remember him (he died in 1986) and have any photos possibly

Yours Hopefully Brian Hollings


If you can help please email Brian at brianne-marie@newboldcoles.fsnet.co.uk   or if would prefer to speak to him let us know at the office here info@lerryn.net 01208 871066 and we can pass your details onto Brian.
