Lerryn School Fair & Nativity Play
December 19th 2010
Lerryn School Christmas Activities
The school fair was held in Lerryn Memorial Hall on 11th December. The Hall was packed and there were stalls containing all sorts of bargains as well as delicious cakes and refreshments. Father Christmas was in his backstage grotto and children lined up to meet him and/or to have their faces painted. A good time was had by all and the princely sum of £970 raised for the school. In the evening, a quiz in the pub raised a further £117.
On Sunday 12th December, St Veep Church was equally packed. The children performed two plays - the infant performance was entitled "It's a Baby!" and the junior performance "Silent Night". Both were extremely well done and the congregation was entranced by the acting and singing and also enjoyed joining in with some of the Christmas carols. A collection was made and £141 sent to the charity "Crisis" to help homeless people at Christmas.
Fiona Corfield paid tribute to the legacy of David Vipond and also to all those who helped to make these activities so succesful. Congratulations to Fiona on the successful completion of her first term at Lerryn.

Collection for Pete the Fish
December 8th 2010
You may have noticed a collection box in the Shop for Peter the Fish. In case you don't know, Peter the Fish is Peter Randall our fish man who hasn't appeared on Wednesdays for some time. Peter has been having a hard time lately with operations and has also been flooded out of his home in Meva, so Pam Michael thought it would be a friendly gesture to send him something for Christmas to show that we miss him. Hence the collection box.
December 7th 2010
Temperatures in some parts of Lerryn fell to minus 10.2 degrees Celsius last night (Monday). The high spring tide flooded the road and the water subsequently froze making it treacherous for pedestrians but good fun for the children.
Pete the Fish Update
December 6th 2010
We are pleased to report that Pete is recovering well from his foot surgery although he still has to attend Treliske Hospital three times a week. His flooded house has now been cleaned up but it will be several months before it will be ready for occupation. In the meantime, he and his wife, Shirley, have warm, cosy accommodation above a shop in Mevagissey. Peter says he is being driven crazy by not being able to work and hopes he will be fit enough to be back after Christmas. We look forward to his return but we hope he will give himself time to recover fully before he starts work again. We all send our very best wishes.
Simon Weston's Visit
December 5th 2010
Roz McNarey (of Help for Heroes) with Simon Weston
Lerryn's very own puzzle author and publisher Charles Morgan has been in the news recently with the launch of Sudoku for Heroes at the DCLI Museum in Bodmin with Falkland's veteran Simon Weston OBE as guest of honour. This is the latest in the Sudoku Word Search series which Charles has been producing for the past two years in partnership with Bodmin-based IT specialist and web designer Kim Roscoe.

Sudoku for Heroes is already on sale in Lerryn River Stores and from M&R Puzzles' own sales stand which is currently doing the rounds of various Christmas Fairs, and it will shortly be available in more local shops. However it should also be available in all good bookshops country-wide in the New Year, as well as in shops attached to military museums and is expected to raise significant funds for "Help for Heroes". To give this a boost Charles and Kim are planning a second, national launch with Simon in London in January.
