A day out in Devon
June 28th 2017
The LERRYN AREA MINIBUS ASSOCIATION runs a timetable of weekly trips to Bodmin and monthly trips to Truro and St Austell. In addition, in full consultation with our passengers, we run a programme of "Special Trips".
Our trip in June was to Dartmouth and Slapton Sands. Our twelve passengers spent a very pleasant 3 hours in Dartmouth where they had their lunch. Dartmouth is such a pleasant seaside town with plenty of activity on the river that there is no danger of getting bored. In the afternoon, we drove to Slapton Sands where our passengers learnt about Operation Tiger* and our driver took the opportunity of treating herself to an ice-cream!
Our next trip is on Monday 17th July when we will be having a day at the seaside. We will visit 2 of the beaches in and around Falmouth. There are still a few seats available. Why don't you join us?
* Exercise Tiger, or Operation Tiger, was the code name for one in a series of large-scale rehearsals for the D-Day invasion of Normandy, which took place in April 1944 on Slapton Sands in Devon. Coordination and communication problems resulted in friendly fire deaths during the exercise, and an Allied convoy positioning itself for the landing was attacked by E-boats of Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine, resulting in the deaths of at least 639 American servicemen. Because of the impending invasion of Normandy, the incident was under the strictest secrecy at the time and was only nominally reported afterwards.
Summer Solstice thank you
June 27th 2017
Many thanks to Nikki and Richard Philp for organising such a fabulous night for Lerryn last Saturday. Lots of hard work but what a great night. Many thanks also to everyone that worked so hard with Nikki and Richard to make it such a success. The Ship, Lerryn River Stores, the volunteers, the people and organisations who donated the raffle prizes, the wonderful band the straw dogs. The profit from the night will be split between the village hall and the school, £100 each, to quote Richard 'proper job' !
Also a massive vote of thanks to the River Lerryn Yacht Squadron for organising the boat and river side of the evening, another huge success and such fun. Thanks to you all for the hard work involved in making this annual event something to look forward. Finally, 'The Walrus' this has been donated to the school for their Summer Fair fundraising event on . Guess the name of the Walrus is already running in the shop. Wine and the walrus being the prize, please support even if you don't want the walrus ( how could I even suggest that ! ) and help raise another £100 for the school.

Dendrochronology - St Veep leads the way
June 20th 2017
On Monday 12th June 2017 at 7-30pm the Lerryn History Society, under the leadership of their Chairman Mr Paul Weatherhogg, organised a special talk given by Dr. Joanna Mattingley entitled “Dendrochronology- St Veep leads the way”.
This fascinating talk centred on the science of reading the wood rings in timbers in order to determine their felling date to an accuracy of circa fifteen years, in order to access the building dates of churches and other historical buildings. It transpired that St Veep church was amongst the first in Cornwall to have this done and it would seem that St Veep is one of the oldest churches in the county being dated around 1488.
Some forty to fifty local people enjoyed this evening and tea, coffee and cakes were provided by “The Friends Of St Veep” on completion.
