Lerryn History Society outing to Truro Cathedral and Crantock Church

October 2nd 2017

On Saturday 30th September, members went on a day outing to Truro Cathedral and Crantock Church to see more woodcarving by Violet Pinwill. We travelled by the LAMA minibus, (expertly driven by Annie Singer) and collected our guide Helen Wilson and her husband in Lostwithiel. On arrival at the cathedral, we were met by Michael, one of the Cathedral guides and taken on a guided tour by him and Helen.

It was wonderful to have such a personal insight into the wonderful work by the Pinwill sisters, and to receive such expert detailed information whilst walking round the cathedral.


After lunch in the Cathedral Restaurant, we travelled to Crantock for a visit to the church, and were met by the sacristan. The wood carving is almost unbelievable in its intricate detail, and we were privileged to have a guided tour, and see close up the workmanship, including the “Confessional” desk and chair.


A most memorable day, and great thanks to Sue Daw for organising the outing, Annie Singer for driving the minibus, and Helen Wilson for being such an expert guide.

Paul Weatherhogg – Chairman, Lerryn History Society.

St Veep Church bells - update

September 26th 2017

We have a delay on the delivery of the bells which will affect our programme of social events. Reg the fabricator at  Nicholsons has been away sick and is not due back until October 2nd at the earliest. The annoying thing is that the tower and the bells are on schedule;  it is the bell frame which is delayed but without that we cannot hang the bells.
We have decided that the jazz concert on Saturday 21st October in St Veep Church will still go ahead on the scheduled date but we have postponed everything else until we are certain Reg is back in action and we can set firm dates.

Minibus Sightseeing Trip to Land's End

September 24th 2017

The LERRYN AREA MINIBUS ASSOCIATION runs a timetable of weekly trips to Bodmin and monthly trips to Truro and St Austell.  In addition, in full consultation with our passengers, we run a programme of "Special Trips".

Our September trip on Thursday 21st was a sightseeing trip to Land's End and once again we had glorious weather.  Our itinerary was as follows:

  • Lerryn-Lostwithiel-Marazion:  we had our coffee break in the Godolphin Arms Hotel from which you have front seat views of St Michael's Mount
  • Marazion-Land's End:  we had lunch at the hotel and the staff had reserved for our group tables by the bay windows and we had uninterrupted views of the sea.  What a treat!  The weather was so clear that you could see the Isles of Scilly without problems.  The food was good too!
  • Land's End-Sennen Cove:  we found benches overlooking the beautiful sandy beach from which we could follow the antics of walkers, swimmers and surfers.  Some passengers even indulged in an ice-cream!
  • Sennen Cove-Zennor-St Ives: this must be the prettiest road in Cornwall with breathtakingly views of the sea on the left and the moor on the right
  • St Ives-Lostwithiel-Lerryn



Our next Special Trips are as follows:

  • Saturday 28th October: Tavistock Farmers’ Market
  • Saturday 25th November am:  LAMA Christmas Coffee Morning
  • Thursday 30th November am:  Waitrose Special (Truro)
  • Thursday 14th December am:  Trelawney Garden Centre

Darren -Lerryn

September 2nd 2017

Dear village, I am with great regret pulling out of Lerryn River Stores as Manager with immediate effect; the reasons are as follows: I cannot disclose the three persons responsible but I am taking legal action against those for libel and slander, Since I have worked at the stores, I have made great friends and enjoyed my time there, building a fantastic village shop - in fact so good that two very generous people were willing to purchase the shop for me to carry on running. When I first started at the shop rumours were spread about Liz having an affair and that I'd been in prison for fraud, you name it, it has been slung and this was very malicious, hurtful and untrue. The Post Office for one do not employ such people and carry out rigorous checks.  I wiped it aside and carried on, I’ve not been paid since May 2016, but I carried on for the village, the latest libel allegations are by text, email and by phone to witnesses, they are totally untrue and libel and slanderous, because of this I've decided to take legal action against those involved. I am so sorry that I have had to make this decision, but please if you hear any of these libel comments or receive any slanderous emails, then please contact me so I can take the necessary recourse. Thank you to the many of you who have and continue to be supportive and who I consider to be great friends.

Thank you
