Lerryn and District Produce Association  64th Annual Produce Show

It's never a certainty that the opening of the Memorial Hall doors in Lerryn will bring a surge of activity, but once again the keen vegetable and flower growers of the district were impatient to show off their prowess - along with those entering the food and decorative classes. The hustle and bustle and coming and goings of the entrants kept up right until the 10.30 deadline, when the atmosphere gave way to the serious considerations of the judges. After much prodding, smelling and tasting, the deliberations were finalised and the winners recorded. The judges remarked that it had been another successful year with a very high standard of entries.


A big thank you to Councillor Benedicte Bay who opened the show to a packed hall accompanied by the melodic music of our house band Anything Goes, who made the proceedings go with a swing. Cream teas went like hot cakes and raffle tickets were dug out of pockets, while silver cups were bestowed on worthy winners.


The prizewinners included:

Marie Farey (Most Points In Show)

Alan Worswick (Cornish Garden Society Award – Gold)

Pat Bucknell (Cornish Garden Society Award – Silver)

John Hancock (Best Bloom In Show)

Thanks to all of you who entered your produce into this year’s show – it makes such a difference to see the hall packed with good things. So, now with the show over it's time to pour yourself a drink, get the deckchairs out, put your feet up and bask in the glory of your garden for another year.

Until the next time…

100 Pages of Lerryn News

August 9th 2014

Lerryn.net has been running for just over 6 years now.  In that time, there have been 100 pages of news carrying a total of 1,000 items!  The most recent page carried a photo of a reunion of 5 boys who were in Year 6 of Lerryn School in 2008.

On the very first page of Lerryn.net News dated 15th May 2008 a photo was shown of 4 boys who were involved in the Lostwithiel football team.  Three of the boys in this photo (Aaron Vincent, Jakey Law and Sam Nicholls) are also shown in the 2014 photo above.  Can you spot them?

If you scroll down to the bottom of the news page you can select any of the 100 pages of Lerryn news over the last 6 years.

Clicking on the buttons below will take you to the very first 2 pages of news.  Sadly, some of the people shown in the photos on these early pages are no longer with us.

Estuary Clean Up

July 20th 2014

David and Karen at Encounter Cornwall are again running a Kayak clean up event, it is planned for Saturday 20th September at 2pm.
This date was chosen to coincide with the Marine Conservation Society's Beachwatch weekend which will see volunteers cleaning beaches in a national campaign. We are taking this event further than the beaches and trying to clean up the wider estuary, especially the parts which are only accessible by water.
Kayaks will be provided or you can bring your own, some kayak experience is necessary. The event is free and there will even be a free pasty in the Fisherman's Arms afterwards to reward your efforts.
Booking is essential with David at info@encountercornwall.com or call on 01726 832104 / 07976 466123
