LAMA Duck Race

September 13th 2018

Our annual duck race took place on Saturday 9th September.   We think that Andy Reid has the power to command the winds!   The ducks scooted obediently up the river, propelled by a very handy SW breeze, almost overwhelming Chicken Sue by arriving en masse at the stepping stones.  It was great fun!

Many thanks to Andy and Sue, who made heroic efforts both in and out of costume, to Robin for providing necessary equipment (including a klaxon that frightened some of us half to death!) and to all those who sold ducks, provided prizes and generally egged us on.

We raised £175 - a LOT more than we have normally accomplished.   All proceeds go to the Lerryn Area Minibus Association

Cream Teas

68th Produce Show report

August 24th 2018





Local residents, children, and visitors turned out on Saturday to enjoy our 68th Annual Show, a big thank you to everyone for your support.



The sun shone, allowing everyone to enjoy authentic Cornish Cream Teas whilst listening to gentle music supplied by our local keyboard maestro Malcolm Bell.








Due to illness Dr Pattie Bowen was unfortunately unable to open the show. So, at the last minute, our joint Presidents Pat and Peter Bucknell kindly stepped in and saved the day.





Unfortunately the extremely hot weather over the last 10 weeks and the heavy down pours of rain the weekend before the show, posed big problems for exhibitors. Thankfully they managed to work miracles and provide some stunning exhibits. Sadly the weather took its toll on the Roses, as we had only one exhibit in these classes this year.


Show entries in the Cookery, Childrens and Photography classes were up this year.

The major winners were as follows:-

W.I. Cup for Most Points in Show                                                   Brian Philp

Association Cup for most points  (Vegetable Classes)                       Brian Philp


Collon Cup for most points (Fruit Classes)                                      John Hancock

DVD of the lerryn.net coffee morning slideshow - 2nd batch for sale

August 21st 2018

The highlight of our coffee morning of Saturday 30th June was the slide show which had been put together using photos from our Photo Gallery and Photo Archive.  The slide show was roughly in three parts: Lerryn through the seasons; Events and People; Old Lerryn.  Even though the weather was sunny and we had put tables and chairs outside, people stayed in the Hall to watch the slideshow, keen to spot their friends and relatives (and themselves!) on the slideshow.

Due to the interest generated, we decided to make copies available and the first batch sold out very quickly.

We have a second batch of DVDs for sale.   To place an order,  please contact annie.singer@talk21.com or buy your copy from the Lerryn River Stores.  The cost is £5.00 plus P&P.
