River Hazard St Winnow Point

May 15th 2009

Its been there a while now and is not going anywhere.

The very large tree trunk in the mud near St Winnow Point has now been reported to the Harbour Master.  This big lump sits not far below the surface on the mid tides and is almost impossible to spot until you hit it with your outboard.  (Note this is not the branches in the mud close to the shore - this thing is part of tree trunk and very large.

Its situation is around 1/3 of the way across the river from the St Winnow Point side in a direct line with the Lerryn end of Brockles Quay. Note therefore that the log is not in the channel - if you are in the channel you won't hit it - however if you are cutting the St Winnow Point Corner on the way back from upriver its in your path.

To help stop any collisions, in the meantime, Tim and Damon from Encounter Cornwall have put a small white buoy with a red mark on the hazard so keep clear of this if you are coming back from upriver in a hurry and taking shortcuts !

Message for the village

May 12th 2009

Mark and Lizzie would like to send our huge apologies to the villagers of Lerryn for all the noise their builders are making at Waters Reach on the north bank! 


The builders and workmen are going at a seriously fast pace to get it done as soon as possible.


We appreciate how wonderfully quiet Lerryn is and feel very guilty that we are temporarily shattering the peace but hope it will not be for much longer.

Catamaran loose off St Winnow Boathouse

April 16th 2009

Encounter Cornwall canoe trip today found that the 25ft Catamaran that appeared to be moored next to the Boathouse St Winnow has in fact drifted there and luckily for whoever owns it has got caught by the dock wall.  We noticed it on Wed night. Luckily again with a falling tide its not going anywhere for a day or two.

FHC have been informed but if anyone knows the owner (or its yours) you need to get down and check its secured.

Can't quite make out the name as its hidden by the wall

"KWA????...... Heri "  FHC Number G254  25ft Catarmaran Red Sails

If you know the owners please let them know.

China Clay falls to an all time low in Fowey

April 11th 2009


Imerys have announced an 11-day shut-down further affecting shipments from the harbour at Fowey.

Further economic fears hit Clay Country this week as Imerys announced it is to shutdown all plants due to a fall in demand.

Only last month Imerys refused to comment on rumours production rates and demand for clay were falling.
One employee, who asked not to be named, claimed demand had dropped to an all-time low with just eight boats leaving Fowey harbour in February, compared to the usual 27 each month.

Struggling to find a Job in Cornwall - is this why ?

April 11th 2009


In parts of Cornwall, unemployment is higher than in urban blackspots.

The Commission for Rural Communities (CRC) found more people applied for any given job vacancy in parts of Cornwall than anywhere else in the country.

The report also complains of a lack of job centres in the countryside.
Since 2000, half of all rural Job Centre Plus offices have closed. In Cornwall, a third have shut in the last year alone.
