Lerryn and District Produce Association Plant Sale

May 5th 2012




Saturday 19th May, 10.30 in Lerryn Memorial Hall.


At last, April is here and the event you’ve been waiting for all year is only weeks away! We’re holding our annual Plant Sale and Coffee Morning fundraiser on 19th May, starting at 10.30am.

The Plant Sale is going to be bigger and better than ever this time, as we know people are already putting in lots of effort to bringing on their plant donations for the sale. 

We hold this important event each year to raise money to stage the Produce Show later on in August. Your support enables us to keep the annual show alive and well in Lerryn.

We are very grateful to Penny Philp who has agreed to fill the post of Show Secretary and to Rita Dunn who is our secretary. Thank you both. 

So please make a note of this date in your diary – May 19th - and show your support by coming along and buying a plant or two, and enjoying a cup of coffee and a delicious slice of WI-made cake.


And don’t forget, the Plant Sale is also the perfect opportunity to join the Association or renew your membership. At only £1, membership opens up the opportunity to win a cup in the specific member-only classes. All details about entries and classes can be found in the 2012 Show schedule, which will be available at the hall. This is also a good time for last years’ Cup winners to return their cups to Sue and John Hancock .



Subjects for this years’ photography competition will be:

Under  16’s: I’m a Zombie

Adults:  Up the Creek

A visit has been arranged on Sunday 1st July 2012 for a guided walk down the Historic Luxulyan Valley. The group will assemble at Par Railway Station at 11.30a.m and the train will depart at 11.53a.m. On arrival at Luxulyan, we will be met by our guide,
Dawn Vivian, who will escort us down the valley.

The walk will be about 3-4 miles, but is not too arduous, although stout footwear is advised. On our way down the valley, Dawn will point out the details of its rich industrial heritage, and a stop will be made for a picnic lunch.(You to provide). We should arrive back at Par at about 4.0 p.m.

THE COST will be £7.00 per person, (guide +train fare)

If sufficient people are interested, it may be possible to hire the Lerryn Minibus to take us to Par Station and return, at an approximate additional cost of £3.00 per person. Otherwise, members could car-share to help keep costs down.

Mugs and a letter from the Queen

May 2nd 2012

As part of Lerryn's Diamond Jubilee celebrations, the committee arranged for the children of Lerryn School to create a design to commemorate the occasion. The winning design by Joshua Franklin was chosen to appear on the commemorative mug which would be given to the children at the school.

The Committee also decided to send one of the mugs to the Queen, and a letter was sent by Flynn Pearce to her Majesty. Much to Flynn's delight, a reply was received 2 days later, and this letter will be on display in the Red Store during the Jubilee Celebrations.

The mugs will be presented to school-children and Parent and Toddler Group during the week commencing 28th May. Any remaining mugs will be sold for £5 each. There will only be a limited number available, (first come first served), so come along to Lerryn Memorial Hall on Monday 4th June if you would like to purchase a unique memento of the Diamond Jubilee.

Cutting it Fine

April 28th 2012

On Sunday 22nd April, the tide was at full height at 6.56am.  This sequence of pictures was taken beginning at 9.52am, three hours after high tide!  With the water running out fast, this couple had to be admired for attempting to head down river.  With walls of mud on each side of the boat, and very little water under it, the engine was finally started and the two occupants plus dog must have breathed a sigh of relief as they headed for deeper water.  Perhaps the occupants knew exactly what they were doing or, perhaps, they were just very lucky.  It would have been a long, cold wait till the tide came in again!

Ella's Funeral and Farewell

April 22nd 2012

Following the sad death of Ella at the end of last week, John and the family would like to thank everyone for their kind support at this difficult time.

They have emailed with details of the funeral arrangements as follows:

Dear Friends,

Becks, Matt, Di, Joel and I have finalised the funeral arrangements for Ella.  

The funeral Eucharist will be 12 noon next Saturday 28th  at St Winnow Church PL22 0LF on the eastern bank of the River Fowey near Lostwithiel.

And afterwards at Lerryn Memorial Hall which is a short drive away. 

Family flowers only please but donations in memory of Ella may be made at church or via the funeral director –Langmaid and Hunkin, 10 Greenbank, Polruan by Fowey, PL23 0QP. (Please make cheques payable to M Ripley memorials). The collection will be shared between St Winnow church and Matt’s medical charity- Exploring Global Health Opportunities UK.’ 

Parking is tight at church and in Lerryn so the St Winnow people would be grateful if you could car share whenever possible. 

We don’t expect you to come – but may we ask that you keep Ella and us in mind at that time and we will look forward to seeing you later. 

With love and thanks for your support over these dramatic past days,


John Halkes and family
