Carol's Birthday Climb

May 1st 2014

Carol Baker had a special birthday and to celebrate she, together with her brother, son and Ann and Bernie Gibbons climbed Scafell Pike in the Lake District last Sunday.  The photo shows Carol at the summit of England's highest mountain at an altitude of 978 metres (3,209 ft) above sea level.  Many happy returns, Carol.

Rachel's Marathon

April 30th 2014


I would like to say a big ‘thank you’ to everyone who sponsored me for the London Marathon. Among 37 000 runners and in near perfect conditions, I managed to finish in a time of 4 hours, 13 minutes, 13 seconds, so I didn’t quite catch Mo Farah, but I was pleased to come in under 4 and a half hours. Money is still coming in as my donation page, www.virginmoneygiving.com/RachelWaters  is open for another 2 weeks but I have raised over £500 so far for Macmillan Cancer Support. So thank you all, once again, for your contributions and messages of encouragement.

Publicising local charity events?

Lerryn.net is a community website run by volunteers for people who live in Lerryn and the surrounding area.

More volunteers are needed to help keep the website up-to-date and lively.

Lerryn and District Produce Association

April 21st 2014

                 ALL CHANGE!

It is with sadness and immense gratitude that we say goodbye to Mr Eric Baker M.V.O. in his role as President of the Lerryn and District Produce Association.

He has been our President for many years, and with such a respected plantsman as Eric at the helm we have gone from strength to strength. We thank Eric for his contribution to the success of the Association in its 64th year.

Peter Bucknell has announced his decision to retire from his post as Chairman. He will be sorely missed, but the committee are delighted that his good sense and consummate skills will not be lost to us altogether as he has generously agreed to take over as joint President alongside his wife, Pat. We take this opportunity of thanking Peter for his 10 years in the post, for guiding us through annual Produce Shows and Plant Sales, committee meetings and cake tastings. Thanks, Peter!

Pat Bucknell has also retired from the committee – but as well as her co-presidency with Peter, she will continue to contribute her valued knowledge and experience by remaining as Steward of the Flower classes.

The committee are delighted to announce that John Hancock has bravely agreed to become the new Chairman of the Produce Association. Well done John, we’re all looking forward to working with you!             

April/May is a good time to sow runner beans, carrots, beetroot, lettuce and broad beans. However, the weather around now can show signs of summer coming, but beware, night-time cold can still be harmful to early plantings – and don’t forget to sharpen your hoes, before getting to grips with those weeds.



Saturday 17th May, Lerryn Memorial Hall. 10.30am

An extra hour of daylight makes all the difference if you’re gallantly trying to bring on plants to donate to our annual sale. Your efforts will be much appreciated as always, and of course, will raise much-needed funds for our annual Produce Show – now in its 64th year.


Saturday 2nd August, Lerryn Memorial Hall



Please don’t forget to return your prizewinner’s cups to Sue Hancock .


Dementia and the Memory Cafe

April 18th 2014

The talk by Memory Nurse Beth Purchase, which had to be postponed earlier in the year because of the weather, will now take place at 8.00pm on Wednesday 7th May, after the WI meeting, in the Memorial Hall. Everyone is welcome: men and women; local people and visitors. There is no admission charge, though donations are always appreciated.

Village Shop

April 17th 2014

There have been quite a few contributions on The Discussion Forum about the Village shop.  The latest comment suggests that one of the holiday flats above the shop has been sold but, as yet, there is no-one interested in purchasing or taking on the lease of the shop and that the price has been reduced.  There is to be an auction of the boat store and part of the Village Green on 9th May (guide price £80,000 - £100,000).  Click on the button to read more:
