Sign Up for Superfast

July 10th 2013

Superfast Broadband is finally here in Lerryn

Thanks Ann H for this tip off - BT and all other providers are now booking engineers for those who want to finally stop having to lose their evenings looking at egg timers on their computers and would rather get out on the river (!)


Just looking at the material posted last month about this. The Fibre Optics box is now up and running for Lerryn (a little green thing in Lerryn View), but it has to be signed up for and it does cost more than the rubbish we have at present.There is no need to get it from BT unless they have a package that suits you - my Plusnet engineer is coming to fit it in a fortnight, and my new router has already arrived. Jeremy at the Chapel was off the mark faster than I was and his engineer is coming next week.

Hope this helps.

Redlake Cottage Meadows Nature Reserve

July 9th 2013


 I've just see a message from the Cornwall Wildlife Trust about Redlake Cottage Meadows Nature Reserve on the Lostwithiel road.

Volunteers are required to help us to graze our Redlake Cottage Meadows Nature Reserve - all you need is a good set of teeth and a healthy appetite... 

In fact a willingness to visit this wild corner of Cornwall and a pair of eyes is all you need - we are looking for people to help us to check the 10 native breed ponies we have grazing this valuable site. 

Being between Lerryn and Lostwithiel it is a long way for us to travel from our HQ at Allet every day but these animals are helping to conserve the rare heath lobelia plant, the only place it is found in Cornwall, so their work is vital.

If you live in that area and can spare an hour or two a week we'd love to hear from you, please contact Peter Gardener, the Reserves Officer for Mid Cornwall on peter.gardener@cornwallwildlifetrust.org.uk

Lerryn Ladies Race for Life

June 27th 2013

A huge THANK YOU from the "Lerryn Ladies"
We thoroughly enjoyed doing our bit for Race for Life at the Royal Cornwall Showground in Wadebridge on Sunday 23rd June. Although there was a strong and cold wind, the weather remained dry for our 5km walk. Thanks to the generous support of our family, friends and work colleagues, so far we have raised an amazing £1631,25 (including gift aid) for the fight against cancer. We hope that you will like our pink fluffy boas!
Once again, a big thank you for your support for this great cause.

(Well done, Ladies)
