Tuesday Club 40th Anniversary

August 8th 2011

Unbelievable!  The Tuesday Club is 40 years old and and still thriving.  A great testimony to the enthusiasm and hard work of its members.  To mark the occasion, we all agreed on a trip down the river to Fowey for fish and chips.   Although we do not normally meet in July and August, the tides dictated that Tuesday 2nd August would be the ideal evening.  About 28 members of the club took part in the boat trip.  The weather was glorious and we all enjoyed the evening.  A big thank you to Rita Worswick and Penny Philp for organising such a successful event. A big thank you as well to the 4 skippers who lent us their boats and steered us expertly through the channel.

Penny took the opportunity to distribute the 2011-2012 programme which had been agreed at the AGM in June.  The programme is as follows:

September:  Visit to Bodmin Jail

October:  Ten-pin bowling in St Austell

November:  Quiz in Hall

January:  Dinner at Lanhydrock Golf Club

February:  Make up session in Hall

March:  Sue's trip to India - slide show in Hall

April: Guided Tour of Lostwithiel

May:  Visit to Pinetum Park

June:  AGM in Lesley's garden

Flowers in St Veep Church

August 4th 2011

A big THANK YOU to all those kind people who help dress St Veep Church with flowers for big occasions. We desperately need help with flowers week by week.  This means 2 vases - or small arrangements- by or on the two altars.  There is a fund available to pay for flowers, and a good supply of dishes, oasis etc if you prefer not to use the brass vases.

On the side table in church, there is a rota for this duty and we would be thrilled to see some more names listed by the dates for this duty.  Otherwise, Sue or Rosemary would happily fill this in for you.  Here is to seeing St Veep Church looking well loved by the addition of these flowers!

Message from the Lerryn and District Produce Association

August 1st 2011

Essential date for your diary!!  61st Annual Produce Show on Saturday, August 6th

All the traditions of the Lerryn and District Produce Show have survived for many years – in fact, last year was the 60th Anniversary.   Can you begin to imagine a Lerryn summer without those frantic days before the show?   The last minute nurturing and preparation of those prize-winning vegetables – the baking of crumbly cakes and light sponges, the snapping of photographs and the polishing of those gleaming pots of jam.
So we need your continuing support more than ever to secure the future of the Lerryn Annual show. Come along to Memorial Hall on Saturday 6th and enjoy all the stunning displays of fruit, flowers and vegetables, the childrens classes with the biggest sunflower, monster vegetables and minature gardens, and, of course, cream teas and a raffle with great prizes and music from ‘Anything Goes’. And all that for just 50p! (Children free, of course).  We’ll see you there!
By the way, you can declare your entry right up to 8.00pm on Thursday 4th August.   Your entries will help to keep this important village event going for a few more years yet!
