Lerryn School Mural

October 31st 2010

 It is still not too late to see a number of murals, including the one created by the pupils of Lerryn School, fastened to the fencing around Fowey Library.  Various groups were asked to put into pictures what Fowey meant to them.  Nearly 40 murals can be seen.

It is very pleasing to see Dippers on the River Fowey upstream from Lostwithiel.  This bird was seen on Friday 29th October.  The Dipper likes fast-flowing rivers and streams and will only be found where the water purity is very good.  It is reassuring to know that the River Fowey obviously meets those requirements. 



The Granary

October 31st 2010


The Granary, shown here in the snow of November, 2005, was one of the most popular summer let cottages in Lerryn.  Throughout the holiday season, the balcony would be enjoyed by the residents as they watched the tide flow in and out.  The river channel runs close to the property and people in boats would exchange cheery waves with those out on the balcony.  The property was sold in November, 2006 and, over the last few year, has gradually become a rather forlorn place as it has awaited renovation.





   The new owners, Sir John and Lady Frances Sorrell, put in plans to renovate The Granary, and, over the last couple of weeks, the work has started and much of the interior has now been stripped out.  It will be interesting to see how the work progresses.  It will be good to see The Granary being given a new lease of life.

A photo of The Granary, taken in the 1890's, with a schooner moored in front of it can be seen in the Photo Archive by clicking on the picture below:






Some of the stripped out wood has found its way (legitimately) by boat to Trevor's cottage where plans for his 5th November celebrations seem to be coming along nicely!

St Veep Flower Arrangers

October 30th 2010

We would like to thank all the generous friends who supported our recent coffee morning, enabling us to raise a much needed £180 to start our flower fund.  We also greatly appreciated all the offers of help and the beautiful wrought iron pedestal which has been given to us.

This enthusiastic encouragement has convinced us that we should actually spend some of the money raised and purchase a step ladder.  When kind friends helped with decorating the Church for the Harvest Festival, we realised that our habit of climbing on balanced chairs to decorate the porch was not a good idea!  The remainder of the funds will be deposited in the Friends of St Veep Church account and will be available for flower arrangers to claim back the cost of flowers when necessary.

If you would like to donate some money for the church to be decorated to celebrate a special occasion , an anniversary perhaps or in memory of a loved one, please know that we will be very happy to offer you any advice.  Contact Rosemary on 01208 873621 or Sue on 01503 220540.
