Full extent of Cornwall Council cuts to services are revealed

October 26th 2010

The full extent of the worst frontline service cuts to hit Cornwall in nearly a century have been revealed, with vulnerable adults, bus passengers and library and leisure centre users expected to be among the worst hit. For the full article click on the link:  http://www.thisiscornwall.co.uk/news/Council-cuts-hit-poor-hardest/article-2796918-detail/article.html

The article is short on specific details and it will be a few weeks before we find out the fate of the services that we use such as the Lostwithiel Library and the mobile library service.

Operation Christmas Child

Many thanks to everyone who supported the Coffee Morning in Lerryn Memorial Hall on Saturday 23rd October in aid of Samaritan Purse.  £134 was raised in cash and this will be given to the charity.  Shoe boxes can still be handed in to Ros at the table top sale on 13th November in the Lerryn Memorial Hall.

Minibus to Lostwithiel on Friday 29th October

October 23rd 2010

You know how difficult it is to find a parking space in Lostwithiel on Farmers' Market Day.  It will be even worse on Friday 29th during the Lostwithiel Food festival.  WHY DON'T YOU TRAVEL BY LAMA?  The minibus leaves Lerryn at 9.30 am and returns at 12.30pm and we charge a very modest fee of £1.20 for the return journey.  Well worth the expense for a hassle free visit to Lostwithiel.  In addition to a visit to the Award Winning Farmers' Market, you can also sample lots of food at the following retail outlets:

  • Proper Cornish pasty promotion at Londis
  • Game Fair with local game & recipes at Liddicoats Butchers
  • Food tastings at Bellamama
  • Food tastings at Watts Trading


Lostwithiel Food Festival

October 23rd 2010

A massive range of events ranging from Pasty making to Korean food demonstrations make up this years Lostwithiel Food Festival which takes place from October 25th to October 30th.

The week' s events start with The Great Cornish Pasty Challenge where everyone is invited to come up with their own recipe for a Cornish Pasty. A panel of experts will taste and judge the best pasty.

Beer and wine buffs will benefit from expert guidance on the best drinks to go with specific foods at tasting evenings at The Globe and The Kings Arms, while Cornish beers, wines and cheeses will feature heavily at a concert at The Community Centre.

The Festival takes on a distinctly continental look from midweek with French, Spanish and Mexican evenings. And all things Eastern will feature in an Asian Food Festival to round the week off. This will feature Thai, Korean, Japanese, Indian and Nepalese food demonstrations together with Thai dancers, kick boxing and Japanese drummers.

As well as individual events restaurants, pubs and food suppliers will be putting on tastings and special food promotions throughout the week.

LAMA special trips

October 16th 2010

In the light of our passengers' feedback, we have decided to slightly change our programme of special trips for the remainder of this year.

  • On Saturday 23rd October, we are going to the Tavistock Farmers' Market
  • On Thursday 4th November , we will be combining our monthly trip to Liskeard with a trip to Kernow Mills
  • There will be no special trip in December


We are currently carrying out a passenger survey in order to plan our programme of trips for next year.  Some passengers have suggested that if we started our trips one hour later, we would get more passengers.  So, in November, we will be trialing the new departure time for the Kernow Mills and Liskeard Trip.  Tell us what you think!

For further details, please visit our LAMA web page.  To book a seat,  contact Annie and Keith on 01208 871272.

Thank you from the LAMA committee

October 16th 2010

A big THANK you to our Lerryn residents who supported the coffee morning.  You helped us raise £120 for the minibus.  Isn't it a wonderful thought that all those extra calories were in aid of a good cause?
