The People’s String Foundation : 'Res Publica'

November 29th 2018

Lerryn Village Hall Thursday 29th November at 7.30pm

(Doors open at 7.00pm)

The People’s String Foundation are a 32-piece Gypsy Orchestra playing original scores of World, Gypsy and Classical styles, fronted by Ben Sutcliffe on virtuoso Violin.
The 'Res Publica' tour has two live musicians (Ben and co-founder Zaid Al-Rikabi) who will play over recorded projections of the full orchestra - Essentially touring an orchestra in a suitcase!
We call this the Virtual Orchestra.
The projections are mixed with cinematography and a narrative of a puppet - by Kneehigh Director Simon Harvey.
It’s looking to be a fantastic project, essentially touring an orchestra to places that would not usually fit or afford one.

Tuesday Club's November quiz

November 28th 2018

Every year, our November get together consists of a quiz compiled by Sue Miller and which includes a Taste round devised by Mandy Treleaven.  This year, we had to identify nine spices served in individual muffin cases.  This "Taste Test" definitely challenged our taste buds.



After the quiz, we enjoyed a buffet of savoury and sweet treats prepared by the members of our group.  There are lots of talented cooks in Lerryn!

Tuesday Club visit to ISO Spaces in Par

November 25th 2018

On Tuesday 13th November, members of the Tuesday Club drove to Par for our rescheduled visit the company ISO Spaces whose MD is Ben Treleaven - his Mum, Mandy, is a member of our group.




ISO Spaces is an award-winning company that designs and manufactures bespoke modular buildings from recycled shipping containers imported from China.



Our visit was in three parts:  Ben explained the conversion process in the factory and then we looked round two modular buildings that were ready:  a bar and a coffee bar – the latter was destined for a railway station in Scotland.  Finally Ben gave us a talk about the company in his office, supported by presentations of the company's portfolio on his computer.


Currently about 1000 units leave the two factories, one in Par and one in Kent where most of the work is done.  In January all the production will take place in Kent although the offices in Par will remain open.  Of the 1000 completed units, 900 are for housing and the remainder is turned into a variety of premises. 

The extensive, varied and innovative portfolio includes the following five examples:

  • Hope Gardens Container Housing in Acton:  The largest temporary accommodation of its kind in the UK, Meath Court in Acton’s Hope Gardens was officially opened on 7 December 2017, providing emergency accommodation for families in our converted shipping container housing – just in time for Christmas.

  • Premium drinks brand, Fever-Tree, commissioned ISO Spaces to design and build a large pop-up Gin & Tonic (G&T) container bar.They designed the bar with an integrated roof terrace, which was fully equipped to be transported from event to event with ease.

  • Eis Haus – Ice Bar:  working with Eis Haus, ISO Spaces has designed and engineered the world’s first ice bar and lounge from shipping containers. Eis Haus was launched at The Telegraph’s Ski and Snowboard Show 2016 in London, and is now booked at a number of high profile events, such as the Tower of London Ice Rink.

  • The Crib Shack Driftwood Spars Container Café in St Agnes, Cornwall:  new for 2018, ‘The Crib Shack‘. ISO Spaces was commissioned to design and manufacture a converted container café that would utilise the space in The Driftwood Spars’ beer garden.

  • Eden Project Ice Cream Parlour:  they worked with The Eden Project to develop a container that would complement the backdrop of the biomes. The colour scheme was carefully chosen to be soft blue and reclaimed-wooden clad was used for the bar frontage.


We were bowled over by the amazing creativity of the ISO Spaces’ team and our visit exceeded our expectations.  Thank you Ben for making time to talk to us about your work.

Respryn Bridge

November 18th 2018



The Respryn Bridge protection measures are now in place.  As can be seen from the above photographs, the gap is just 7 feet wide making it very tight for larger vehicles.  If you are intending to cross the bridge, be aware that you may have difficulty if you have a wide vehicle.
