Plant Sale Success

A busy and jolly morning was had by all at this years’ plant sale and from the opening of the Memorial Hall doors, enthusiastic buyers were snapping up fantastic horticultural bargains for the flower and vegetable bed alike!

A big thank you to those who donated plants and seedlings for the sale and once again we are grateful to the W.I. who did us proud with their teas, coffees and home-baked cakes and biscuits. The proceeds go towards putting on the Annual Lerryn Produce Show, and with increasing costs, every little helps!

A reminder that this years’ show will be held on Saturday, 4thAugust – so, get growing, have thoughts about floral arrangements, refine recipes for the Cookery Classes and start snapping away for that winning photograph (this years’ photography titles are, for the under 16’s: ‘I’m a Zombie’ and for the adults: ‘Up the Creek’). And lastly, we would be grateful if you could remember to return your prizewinner’s cups to Sue and John Hancock.

The Lerryn Produce Association will be joining in with the national project to plant a celebratory Jubilee Oak tree to mark this memorial year. The tree will be truly local, as it has been grown from an acorn picked up “down by the river” and planted by Mr John Philp. We still await permission from the local authorities about it’s chosen site, but when this happens it will be planted and protected by a traditional metal frame, that has kindly been donated.

The New Matthew

May 22nd 2012




The replica, Matthew, in the evening sun sailing 5 miles out in St Austell Bay on 21st May 2012






The New Matthew

Over 500 years ago John Cabot and his crew set sail for Asia aboard the original Matthew hoping to trade goods and commodities with the people who lived there.

However, he finally arrived on the coast of Newfoundland and therefore was the original discoverer of North America, not Christopher Columbus as most people believe.

In 1997 the replica Matthew followed the same course as John Cabot in 1497 and sailed across to Newfoundland. It carried the same number of crew members as the original and took the same amount of time to complete the crossing.

Today The Matthew is based in Bristol Harbour during the autumn and winter months and is open to the public as well as undertaking short cruises around the harbour. During spring and summer time, the sails are unfurled and the ship continues to explore the exciting wild seas around the British Isles and Northern Europe - creating quite a spectacle wherever she ventures.


Lucky for some

May 20th 2012

Most of Lerryn was fortunate and, at last, had its recycling collection on 19th May.  Those living in Collon Field and Couchs Mill Road were not so lucky and still wait for the collection - now 10 days late!

Not Lerryn but ---------

May 19th 2012

Not Lerryn but the closest the 2012 Olympic Flame came to our village - Bodmin at 6.15pm


Recycling Collections in Lerryn - Update.

May 18th 2012

The recycling collections have not been made as promised as can be evidenced by the multi coloured bags and boxes continuing to decorate our Village and Parishes.

It is clear that the problems of non-collections persist and the advice from Cornwall Council is that everyone should call to report the non-collection of their own rubbish/recycling as this will aid them in ensuring that everything is propely logged and acted upon, and if neccessary penalties imposed under the contract.

Call 0300 1234 141 if this affects you, it is in all of our interests to get this situation sorted out as soon as possible.


Support the minibus

May 15th 2012

The final quiz of the series will be held in The Ship on Saturday night, 19th May. All proceeds will be in aid of the minibus, and it should be a good night out. Please come and support us.
