A new source of fish

November 30th 2011

Those of you who enjoyed buying fish from Peter Randall will be sad to learn that he has retired. To remedy the situation,  Bill Needs and David St. John have arranged with Hayley Thomas, the manager of “Richards” of Par to deliver orders of fresh fish to Lerryn every Friday.   Here is how the system would work:

  • Those requiring fish would ring the manager, Hayley Thomas, on the preceding Wednesday with their requirements i.e. type of fish and preparation required.
  • The fish would be wrapped in a package bearing the weight, type of fish, name of purchaser and price.
  • The orders would then be delivered by “Richards” to the Drill Hall in Lerryn on Friday morning by 11am.
  • It will be imperative that either the customer or a friend will be there to collect the fish at about 11am. otherwise the system will not work.
  • Bill or David will collect the money and pay “Richards” the following week.
  • Please let one of us know whether you are interested to take part in a trial run of this scheme for a period of 3 months. We will also liaise between the customers and “Richards” during the trial phase.

    Contact – Bill Needs, tel. 01208 872884 or David St.John, tel. 01208 873373


Message from Devon and Cornwall Police

November 29th 2011

This message relates to Police log 415 27 November 2011.

Officers are investigating a number of reports of distraction burglaries received in Mid and West Cornwall from Friday 25 November 2011.
The reports received are of males calling purporting to be from the water board claiming to be tracing water leaks or claiming to be tracing a gas leak.

Whilst one has distracted the resident the other has stolen cash. All residents called on have been elderly.

At this time we cannot say if all the reports have the same offenders. We are making all residents aware as these males could travel.

Please be suspicious of any unexpected callers and never let anyone into your property whose identity you are not certain of. If you believe you have suspicious persons calling at your door please phone 999 and if possible make a note of descriptions and vehicle registrations.  Please phone 101 if you have any information.

Please pass this information on to your neighbours. Thank you.
