RNLI - SOS (Share our Soup!) day exceptionally well supported.

February 1st 2009

Saturdays "Share Our Soup day" was very well supported,  raising around £500 net for RNLI funds.

Our thanks go to to all those who turned up to enjoy a mug of soup and a "sinful" dessert making the event such a wonderful social occasion.

Thanks are also due to the ladies who catered for the event and managed to keep going even when numbers outstripped expectations.

W.I. Ballroom Dancing Workshop inpires rhyme!

February 1st 2009


A group of us came to take the chance
Patricia could teach us how to dance.
First the quick step – nothing slow
How we did it I don’t know.
Slow, slow, quick, quick, slow
Round you go and mind that toe.
The progressive barn dance challenged the men
Room for improvement, ‘Let’s do it again’!

WI Ladies learn the rudiments!

January 17th 2009

 Members of the WI immensely enjoyed their Carpentry Workshop on 15th January. 

They spent the day under the watchful eye of Richard Halliday, who appeared quite undaunted by seven ladies wielding various tools which many had never handled before! 
Thanks to Richard’s professional tuition, we mastered the art of measuring, sawing, nailing, drilling and screwing. 
By the end of the day we had all completed a bird box and some were well on the way to producing a planter. Such was the enthusiasm that we all wanted more!                        Thanks again Richard.


A fitting send off for a special lady.

January 15th 2009


On Monday 12th January after a Cremation Service at Glynn Valley, Lerryn said farewell in style to Jean D. Elliott in the Lerryn Memorial Hall, where a feast and a beautiful arrangement of flowers was set before all the guests.

Our heartfelt thanks go to members of the Lerryn Women’s Institute for organising and providing the refreshments, along with contributions from other Ladies in the village, and later for making good afterwards with help from the volunteers.

It was an occasion exemplifying Lerryn at its sociable very best.

"Proper Job"

Ronald and Family.

Happy New Year to all the readers, contributors and the development team of the Lerryn Website

We would also like to thank the many people who have contributed to the website over the year, in whatever way. The number of visitors to the site continues at a high level and we have had a number of  plaudits from people who either used to live in the village, or are relatives of current residents.  All use the site to keep in touch with what is going on.

The Group recognise that it still has some way to go to fulfill its commitment to deliver a comprehensive service to the community and this is what we will be working on during the coming year. We will review how the site has worked over the past year and you can expect some of the areas that have not worked so well to be changed as we try different approaches to keep the site fresh and relevant.

Do your stuff!

January 13th 2009

The Lerryn Players' Springtime Revue, to be held on 24 and 25 April, is now in preparation. Anybody willing to 'do a turn' should contact co-ordinator Jim Kelly (873837) as soon as possible. There are no formal rehearsals for the Revue. People prepare their own material, though the Players' Musical Director, Malcolm Bell (872119), will offer help to those planning musical contributions, and there will be a run-through the weekend before the performances to check production details. Go on - have a go!!
