The Great Winter Nurdle Hunt


January 30th 2017

This coming weekend, the 3rd-5th February is the Great Winter Nurdle Hunt
 
What on earth is a Nurdle, you may ask?
 
Nurdles are small plastic pellets which are a raw material in the manufacture of plastic products. 
They are being found in large numbers in the marine environment and are harmful to marine life.
 
The Great Nurdle Hunt is being organised in collaboration with a number of organisations including Greenpeace and the Marine Conservation Society.
 
They are asking people to visit a beach over the coming weekend and keep an eye out for nurdles and record them to provide evidence to the UK Government of the scale of this issue.

Thank you Pony Express and The Ship Inn.


January 30th 2017

A huge thank you on behalf of St Winnow and St Veep Parish Churches to the Lerryn ‘Pony Express’  for funds raised towards our respective Bells & Tower Appeals.  Funds were raised from the delivery of Christmas cards throughout Lerryn village and the surrounding area at Christmas 2016 with the local children, and also from the subsequent ‘Pony Express’ pub quiz in The Ship Inn, Lerryn at the weekend.  Funds raised amounted to £ 225 for EACH Church as a result – a fantastic and most appreciated result.

Thanks also to The Ship Inn, Lerryn for hosting the pub quiz (great night), everyone who donated raffle prizes and of course all who supported the Lerryn ‘Pony Express’.
