Saturdays "Share Our Soup day" was very well supported,  raising around £500 net for RNLI funds.

Our thanks go to to all those who turned up to enjoy a mug of soup and a "sinful" dessert making the event such a wonderful social occasion.

Thanks are also due to the ladies who catered for the event and managed to keep going even when numbers outstripped expectations.

W.I. Ballroom Dancing Workshop inpires rhyme!

February 1st 2009


A group of us came to take the chance
Patricia could teach us how to dance.
First the quick step – nothing slow
How we did it I don’t know.
Slow, slow, quick, quick, slow
Round you go and mind that toe.
The progressive barn dance challenged the men
Room for improvement, ‘Let’s do it again’!

WI Ladies learn the rudiments!

January 17th 2009

 Members of the WI immensely enjoyed their Carpentry Workshop on 15th January. 

They spent the day under the watchful eye of Richard Halliday, who appeared quite undaunted by seven ladies wielding various tools which many had never handled before! 
Thanks to Richard’s professional tuition, we mastered the art of measuring, sawing, nailing, drilling and screwing. 
By the end of the day we had all completed a bird box and some were well on the way to producing a planter. Such was the enthusiasm that we all wanted more!                        Thanks again Richard.


A fitting send off for a special lady.

January 15th 2009


On Monday 12th January after a Cremation Service at Glynn Valley, Lerryn said farewell in style to Jean D. Elliott in the Lerryn Memorial Hall, where a feast and a beautiful arrangement of flowers was set before all the guests.

Our heartfelt thanks go to members of the Lerryn Women’s Institute for organising and providing the refreshments, along with contributions from other Ladies in the village, and later for making good afterwards with help from the volunteers.

It was an occasion exemplifying Lerryn at its sociable very best.

"Proper Job"

Ronald and Family.
