Lerryn Produce Association Notice

June 1st 2009



When you read this the Plant Sale will be over and the Show will be only 2 months away on August 1st 2009, times does fly.


I hope that you picked up a schedule at the coffee morning, if not they are available from the shop, Viv Turner at Creekside Cottage or Penny Philp.


In recent years the entries in the classes for Flower Arranging have been a little disappointing. We all know that there are some very talented and artistic ladies, and gentlemen! in the village who excel at this. I understand that once again the W.I. will be involved so how about the young mum’s having a go, having swept the board at Quiz Night you should find Flower Arranging a piece of cake.


The photography class this year for adults is “Cornish Sunlight”, plenty of scope there to let your imagination run riot provided of course the sun does shine.


For children the title is “Horror” we are looking for a really scary picture of any size.


At the school David Vipond tells me that the potatoes have broken surface, it will be very interesting to see how this works out and who will be successful in winning the shield.


Happy gardening

Bocconoc Garden opening a success for the RNLI

May 19th 2009


Boconnoc Gardens opened for the RNLI on Sunday May 10th by kind permission of Mr and Mrs Anthony Fortescue.
It was a glorious day and visitors streamed in to enjoy the magnificent displays of rhododendrons, azaleas and bluebells in a beautiful setting. In addition, there was a fascinating display of horse drawn carriages provided by the Cornwall branch of the British Driving Society. The sight of perfectly turned out carriages being driven around Boconnoc was amazing – it certainly awed some American visitors!
The stable yard provided a sunny spot to enjoy various stalls and displays – RNLI lifeguards, RNLI souvenirs, Treleaven’s ice-cream, Proper Plants, pottery, jewellery and cards – as well as delicious teas. The committee and helpers had provided a veritable feast – Cornish cream teas and a mouth-watering range of home-made cakes. Not surprisingly, many people who had opted for splits or scones and cream came back for a slice of cake!
At the time of writing, we have raised nearly £700, but donations are still coming in. We have to say a special thank you to Rhodda’s who gave the clotted cream, Morrison’s who donated the splits and Lerryn Village Stores who donated the milk. In addition, we have to thank the many supporters who baked for us, who gave up their time to help run the event and who turned up to support us on the day. THANK YOU, EVERYONE!
