John Audsley (Known to some of you as "Yorshire John") has asked me to let everybody know through the website that his mother Edith passed away in hospital on Wednesday 20th March.
The funeral will take place on 11th April at 9.30 am at the Glynn Valley Crematorium.
The minibus will be available to take mourners to the Glynn Valley Crematorium free of charge and will leave Lerryn at 8.45 am. Please ring 01208 871272 to book a seat and arrange pick-up point.
John proposes donations to LAMA in lieu of flowers, as Edith always said she would rather have them while she was alive.
PENPOL BRIDGE CLOSED
March 24th 2013
I came back from work early afternoon on Saturday 23rd March, only to find that I had to turn round and find another way home, as the bridge at Penpol had been closed since lunchtime. Huge blocks of masonry have fallen from under the bridge into the river and has made it unsafe not only for drivers but also for walkers.
We will let you know of any further developments. In the meantime, spread the news please as many drivers are being caught out!
Super Fast at Last
March 21st 2013
Some of the more observant of you may have already worked it out
I spoke to the BT guys in the main Car Park today who confirmed they are laying the cable now for Superfast Broadband so we will get it and it will be soon. They are finishing the line in Lerryn and Lostwithiel right now - it will extend onto Polruan and they are not sure if we will get switched on before that length is done.
However either way its coming soon - many thanks to all those who emailed to put pressure on the Broadband Team to try and push this forward
BT will send letters to try and hook you all into it as soon as its ready to go but we will advise further on the website so keep checking back.
All hail the end of Buffering and egg timers
Join us on a village Coast Path Celebration Walk
March 20th 2013
Happy Birthday South West Coast Path
The South West Coast Path is celebrating its 40th Birthday this year and during April a series of walks is being organised by the Coast Path Team, National Trust and others involved in keeping the path running. These are to celebrate the path and raise money to deal with improvements and some of the many landslips that have occured particularly this winter.
Encounter Walking Holidays based in Lerryn are raising money for a project at Lansallos Cove (our local section of path) to improve access for local walkers from the Car Parks and repair some of the ancient stone stiles there that are falling down.
CLICK HERE to read more about the Project and see pictures of the work to be done at Lansallos - we have already raised over £600 and this is being matched with European Funding so over £1200 worth of work is now going ahead - this is being organised by The National Trust Coast Path Ranger Andy Simmonds.
Join The Lerryn Village Walk - Polperro to Polruan - Thursday 25th April - 7 miles
We are inviting everyone to join the official Great South West Walk celebration walk from Polperro to Polruan on Thursday 25th April. This is a guided walk led by the Coast Path Team who are then continuing on to Lands End day by day for a big party early in May. Its a national event so will have walkers from all over the country but as we all know, Polperro to Polruan is one of the finest sections - please join the walk with us !
Details follow on the poster below but we are running the Lerryn Minibus from the village on the day to Polperro where anyone from the Lerryn area will link up with the official walk. You will then be collected after 7 stuning miles taking in Raphael Cliffs, Lansallos (see the Project locations on the way), Pencarrow Head and above Lantic Bay to finish in Polruan.
Encounter Walking Holidays are paying for a pint for anyone who completes the walk and will provide the LAMA minibus transport back to Lerryn at the end of the walk.
So please come along, bring your dog if you wish and be part of the largest group walk along our local section of coastline - without having to bring your car !
£10 per person Donataion ALL of which goes to the Coast Path Project at Lansallos improving the access and protecting the walking there for years to come.
If you can't make the walk please consider donating a pound or two - everything helps and every pound you give is matched by the funding from Europe - CLICK HERE and you can donate via the website at justgiving.org - it takes around two minutes and you can leave us walkers a message of support that everyone will see.
