Village news


October 12th 2011

On Friday 14th October, Boconnoc will be celebrating the “harvest home” in the traditional way.

The Harvest Festival was invented in Cornwall in 1843 by the vicar of Morwenstow, Robert Stephen Hawker, and Boconnoc expects its Harvest Festival to be one that Parson Hawker would have been delighted with.

The church will be decorated with produce from the fields and gardens (which will be raffled later), there will be familiar hymns and chants, readings from the King James Bible, and of course pasties and wine afterwards.

Everybody is welcome at this joyous occasion – come along and join in!   We will start at 7.30pm

Born Survivors

October 2nd 2011

The late brood mallard ducklings hatched at the beginning of September are developing well.  There are still 4 ducklings left with their mother, a very good survival rate.  It seems that these autumn ducklings have a better chance of survival compared with the spring and summer broods which, on our river, suffer very heavy losses.

My daughter's wedding (update)

October 1st 2011

We would like to say a great big 'thank you' to anyone in Lerryn who helped make my daughter Catherine and Jim's day on Saturday the 10th such a splendid, joyful occasion.  As well as people who were directly involved, it was also delightful to see so many locals coming out to watch the new Mr and Mrs Harris' arrival by water from Golant church, and our procession to the Memorial Hall for the reception.

If you helped us in any way, no matter how big or how small, please accept our thanks - I'm not able to name everyone, but you know who you are!  (Mary Wittamore and family)

And below are two photographs that have just been sent to the Website:


 Here are a couple of photos of the wedding of Catherine Wittamore and Jim Harris on Saturday the 10th of September.  The ceremony took place in the church at Golant, where Catherine grew up, followed by cream teas in the Red Store (thanks, Post Office!) and a party in the Memorial Hall.  As you can see, the bride and groom arrived by water.
