Lerryn School Christmas Fair

Website News

December 10th 2018


Thanks to generous funding from the National Lottery, a new website is being built for us.

Our present website has served us well for ten years, but it cannot meet all of our current needs. For example, it is hard for users to insert and adapt their own copy and it is not readily accessible on tablets, smart phones and other portable devices.

The new website will not look strange as it will incorporate all the familiar features such as the news page, the photo archive, the calendar and the individual group pages. However, it will look up-to-date and be more flexible, more responsive and much easier to use.



The site will need to be ‘frozen’ for a while until the work is completed and ready for a re-launch.

We have chosen to do this over the Christmas and immediate post-Christmas period, which is relatively quiet. The current site will therefore be frozen at midnight on 20 December and will close on 31st December.  This will be replaced by a holding page on our new website which will then go live by mid January.

If you or your group contribute to the calendar entries or have your own page, please update it as soon as you can, as you will not have access from 20 December.


It will be worth it!

A big THANK YOU to Lola who spent the afternoon in the Lerryn Memorial Hall on Saturday 1st December to take photos of our dress rehearsal.

The matinee took place on Sunday 2nd December and the two evening performances are today Friday 7th and tomorrow Saturday 8th.  Hurry down to the Lerryn River Stores if you would like a ticket!

1st Year Anniversary of Shop Re-opening

December 5th 2018

Saturday 1st December 2018 saw villagers gather outside Lerryn River Store to celebrate the shop's first birthday in the care of Michelle and Nick, and to make a well deserved presentation to them both.

From an empty space to a busy shop, Post Office, cafe, art gallery, information exchange, booking office (for the Memorial Hall and local events) and  lively, sociable meeting place for villagers and visitors, has been achieved by these two amazing, modest people, who have displayed a wonderful commitment to our community, which has been greatly welcomed and appreciated by everyone in and around the village.


Our sincere thanks to them both and every success in the future

Happy birthday Lerryn River Store – and many more of them.
