Message from Terry Duperron

January 20th 2013

My wife and I visited from Florida, USA in 2007 for a walking tour of the Lerryn area arranged through Encounter Cornwall. We spent the year travelling to many places, but the short time we stayed at the pub in Lerryn and spent walking through the breathtaking countryside was not only a high point of that year, but has been a cherished memory for me during some hard times since then. It may sound silly and sentimental, but I thank you all so much for the beauty and kindness that we found in your wonderful town. I find myself wishing that I could come back again for a longer visit, but I doubt I will every be that lucky again. Lerryn touched my heart and I was changed. I draw comfort from knowing that such a wonderful place still exists in the world.

Message from Devon and Cornwall Police

January 18th 2013

The Police have received reports of males making “cold call” visits to residential premises and farms across the Devon and Cornwall Force area offering to sell power tools. In particular the males are offering chainsaws and generators for sale.

Members of the public considering purchasing such items in these circumstances should consider that fact that these items may be manufactured cheaply and not comply with the relevant Health and Safety requirements.

Members of the public are advised to satisfy themselves that they are happy with the item they are purchasing before exchanging any payment and to not take any assurances or “sales talk” at face value. Where members of the public are subjected to threats or intimidation or feel that they have witnessed conduct of a suspicious nature they are requested to contact their local police in the normal manner.
