Games on the Green

July 19th 2015

What will you play first on the afternoon of Sunday 19th July? Are you handy with the dice? Good at hand-eye co-ordination? Up for a gentle game of boules? Or is your style more of a quick flutter on the tombola and watching gentle children splatting a rat while waiting for the duck race to start?

Whatever your skills and inclinations, come and support the LAMA minibus from 2.30-4.00pm on the green - or in the Hall if wet. Either way, refreshments will be available from the shop.

The posters advertising this years’ show have been pinned up around and about, so now’s the time to start preparing and nurturing your entries. If you’ve never put anything into an annual show before, now is the time to take the plunge and – you never know – you could be walking away with a beautiful prize-winners’ trophy or simply basking in the glory of entering something you have produced.

Entry forms and schedules with full details about all the different competition classes are available from Lerryn River Stores or from Brian and Penny Philp.

We can promise you a beautiful show of flowers, fruit and vegetables, mouth-watering bakes and preserves, children’s crafts, exquisite decorative floral displays, photographs, and of course, Cornish cream teas, a raffle and music by our live band, Anything Goes.

So please do come along and support the wonderful effort and creativity shown by our community in the traditional setting of the Memorial Hall on Saturday 1st August.


Please remember to return your prize-winners’ cups to Sue Hancock (01208 873478).

Osprey Nesting Poles

July 11th 2015

We are excited to let you know that the Osprey poles were put up on 9th July. Here's a short report from our chairman Peter Edwards who must be thanked for all his efforts to make this happen!
It was an early start for the 4 crew from BT Openreach to get to Haye Farm with all their equipment and the telegraph poles where Farmers Alix and Nigel were waiting to show them the positions of the artificial nest and perch poles.  The operation started by digging the holes with the machine auger whilst Ben from the SE Ranger team of the National Trust  fixed the nesting basket to one pole and the perching timbers to the another.  Then the BT team hoisted the poles into the holes with their lorry mounted crane and backfilled the hole.  On one pair of poles the digging was much more difficult as the main lorry wouldn’t work on the sloping ground, but BT had a smaller rough terrain machine that could, but the poles had to be man-handled into place.
A very hard working crew were then shown the cider making equipment that Haye Farm is famous for and of course were allowed a little sample of cider.
A huge thank you to the team at BT and Ben from NT for making a very difficult job go extremely smoothly and of course to Alix and Nigel for allowing it all to happen.
Next job is to get the nesting material into the baskets with the help of CWT and then we will have comfy nests to attract the Ospreys
We will be organising a guided visit in the near future so will keep you posted.

Memorial Service for Gwen Shillaber

June 17th 2015

Gwen's children have informed us that they will be holding a Memorial Service on Wednesday 24th June at 1.30pm in St Winnow Church.  The minibus committee would have loved to put on a minibus shuttle to the church but unfortunately, the minibus is in the garage that week for bodyworks repairs.  Bearing in mind how little car parking there is in St Winnow, we would urge you all to organise car sharing and give lifts to the residents who do not drive.  Thank you in advance.

The family would like Gwen's friends to join them in the Lerryn Memorial Hall after the service for refreshments and to share memories.


Defibrillator Training

June 12th 2015



Lerryn Defibrillator

June 1st 2015


Lerryn WI in conjunction with FLEET – Front Line Emergency Equipment Trust – installed the Village’s defibrillator outside the Ship Inn at Lerryn. The WI felt that a defibrillator would be an ideal project to sponsor and Ronni Collins, the Landlady of the Ship Inn, was more than happy to offer the wall of the pub which bears the slogan “ the Pub is the Hub” increasing the number of community projects the Ship is involved in.   Local electrician Phil James worked with FLEET’s Norman Trebilcock to get the machine installed and working before the May half term holiday. Nina Bacon and Sheila Tyacke coordinated the project and were thrilled when it was completed in time for the busy week. “I hope we never have to use it” said Nina “but if it helps just one person then it has to be worth its weight in gold”.    

Norman will be holding a demonstration / CPR night and a question and answer session in the Ship Inn on Thursday 11th June at 7.30pm.

All are welcome - come and find out about the defibrillator and its champions (those who have agreed to support anyone needing to use the machine).
