Boconnoc Music Recital - tomorrow

A day out at the Falmouth Beaches

July 17th 2017

The LERRYN AREA MINIBUS ASSOCIATION  runs a timetable of weekly trips to Bodmin and monthly trips to Truro and St Austell.  In addition, in full consultation with our passengers,  we run a programme of "Special Trips".

Our trip in July was to the Falmouth Beaches and once again, we had glorious weather.  Our itinerary was as follows:

  • Coffee break at Trelissick Gardens near Truro
  • Sightseeing:  Falmouth Docks (view from Castle Hill) and Pendennis Point
  • Lunch at Gyllyngvase Beach
  • Walk round the beatifully manicured Queen Mary's Gardens next to the beach (They were opened in 1912 to commemorate the coronation of Queen Mary, the wife of George V.).  The hot border was spectacular and the flowers included field poppies of an intense red never seen before,  labelled "ladybird poppy"
  • Drive past Swanpool beach
  • Ice cream break on the beach at Maenporth


Our next special trip will be on Thursday 21st September when we will be going on a sightseeign trip to Penzance, Lands' End and Sennen Cove.  Why don't you join us?

Lerryn Ladies Dining Club - an evening at the Smugglers' Rest at Talland Bay

July 15th 2017

The Dining Club meets three or four times a year and members take it in turn to organise the evening.  Susan Bailey and Annie Singer organised the outing of Friday 14th July and nineteen Lerryn Ladies made their way to the Smugglers' Rest in Talland Bay for a meat and fish barbecue.  The weather was glorious - blue skies and not a breath of wind and the sea was flat calm - a view that we could all enjoy from our outside tables.







We enjoyed our barbecue and afterwards some ladies indulged in ice-creams.  Julie definitely enjoyed hers!








Because 14th July is Bastille Day in France,  there was an opportunity to dress up in red, white and blue for those who wanted to.  Susan won the best dressed prize!



We look forward to our next meal out which will take place in October.

St Veep Church Bells - celebration event of 13th July 2017

July 15th 2017

As part of our “Once in a Lifetime Opportunity” celebrations,  we invited the whole community to St. Veep church on Thursday evening.
Our Virgin Bells were set out in the aisle of the church:  this is the first time they have been on public display since they were refurbished by Taylors in 1936. In addition,  the dismantled bell frame showing distinct signs of rust was laid out in the churchyard.
We were delighted so many people came along to take advantage of this opportunity - we estimated at least 80 and maybe 100.
Refreshments were provided by the W.I., many thanks to Flynn and all her team and also to the Supporters of St. Veep who provided a modicum of wine, coffee and soft drinks.
This made for an informative  and convivial evening for a large number of the community and all of us at St. Veep Church would like to thank you for your support with the bell project.
The bells have now been loaded on a lorry and should by now have arrived at the bell hangers foundry at Bridport.
Finally many, many thanks to the volunteers, too many to mention by name, who helped remove the bells and the frame from the tower.

St Veep Church Bells: pupils of Lerryn School get a Once in Lifetime Opportunity

July 14th 2017

As part of this celebration,  the school visited the church on Wednesday afternoon to view the bells which were set out in the aisle of the church.
Fittingly,  they arrived in the LAMA bus at about 1.30.
We all enjoyed a short history of the virgin bells and after looking at them,  we went out into the churchyard  and examined the dismantled bell frame.
The children then spent some time drawing the bells before we all had squash and biscuits which went down very well.
Finally before they left each pupil was given a Heritage Lottery Fund lapel badge.

July 12th 2017

For the first time since 1936,  St. Veep’s virgin bells will be lowered and stored in the aisle of the church.

Come and see the bells on Thursday 13th July from 7.00 pm onwards.


Have your photograph taken with the bells and enjoy a cup of tea with us or even perhaps a glass of wine.

The bell ringers will be there to show you round the bells and perhaps tell a tale or two.

Please come along, all are very welcome!

A day out in Devon

June 28th 2017

The LERRYN AREA MINIBUS ASSOCIATION  runs a timetable of weekly trips to Bodmin and monthly trips to Truro and St Austell.  In addition, in full consultation with our passengers,  we run a programme of "Special Trips".


Our trip in June was to Dartmouth and Slapton Sands.  Our twelve passengers spent a very pleasant 3 hours in Dartmouth where they had their lunch.  Dartmouth is such a pleasant seaside town with plenty of activity on the river that there is no danger of getting bored.  In the afternoon, we drove to Slapton Sands where our passengers learnt about Operation Tiger* and our driver took the opportunity of treating herself to an ice-cream!





Our next trip is on Monday 17th July when we will be having a day at the seaside.  We will visit 2 of the beaches in and around Falmouth.  There are still a few seats available.  Why don't you join us?




Exercise Tiger, or Operation Tiger, was the code name for one in a series of large-scale rehearsals for the D-Day invasion of Normandy,  which took place in April 1944 on Slapton Sands in Devon. Coordination and communication problems resulted in friendly fire deaths during the exercise, and an Allied convoy positioning itself for the landing was attacked by E-boats of Nazi Germany's Kriegsmarine, resulting in the deaths of at least 639 American servicemen.  Because of the impending invasion of Normandy, the incident was under the strictest secrecy at the time and was only nominally reported afterwards.
