Beginners training sessions are on a Tuesday night and anyone wanting to come along should contact the Club through their website - Fowey River Canoe Club - or their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/foweyrivercc/

Ladies' Dining Club

Over ten years ago, four Lerryn residents thought that it would be a good idea for like-minded ladies to sample together the food delights of Cornwall. The first outing, for 14 Lerryn ladies, was to the Tiapan restaurant in Fowey. We go out three or four times a year to a variety of restaurants and we take it in turn to organise the outings.

Lerryn Memorial Hall

Lerryn Memorial Hall

Originally built in 1926 as a village institute, the previous hall was extended in the late 1950s and dedicated to all those from the village who gave their lives in the First and Second World Wars. The hall was always the centre of Lerryn village life but by the end of the 20th century had become somewhat dilapidated. It was therefore decided to raise funds for a complete rebuild in time for the new millennium. Under the leadership of Francis Allfrey this was achieved using funds raised by the people of Lerryn and by outside funding. In June 2000 the hall was reopened by the Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall and re-dedicated to the memory of those who gave their lives and continues to be known as the Memorial Hall. The new building includes a snooker room with a full sized snooker table, a large hall with a stage for performances, a well equipped kitchen and three store rooms and also has an upstairs committee room. It is licensed for public performances. In the main hall is a projector and screen for showing films, stage lights and stage curtains and plenty of chairs and tables. As well as film presentations the hall is used on a regular basis for Pantomimes and Revues and other public performances, for the Lerryn Parent and Toddler Group, Short Mat Bowls Competitions, Yoga classes, Lerryn W.I. meetings, Lerryn Art Group, Lerryn Produce Association, Jumble sales, various committee meetings and for parties and weddings. Our Memorial Hall is an amenity of which we are all proud ! To book the Hall please ring Michelle Coulson on 07496 322403, write to her at East Tencreek, St Veep,  Lostwithiel PL22 0PF or email her:Michellecoulson289@btinternet.com.

With no constitution, rules, regulations, subscriptions, fees, funds or premises, it consists solely of a committee of eight members who organise two boating events on the river each year. The committee meets irregularly at The Ship Inn to discuss, with adequate lubrication, the complexities of organising the world famous British Seagull Outboard Motor Race around Christmas time and the "Summer Solstice" event in mid-summer. Any money raised is donated to the RNLI, village organisations and local charities. For more info check the Calendar pages nearer the date.
