Lerryn Ladies Race for Life

June 27th 2013

A huge THANK YOU from the "Lerryn Ladies"
We thoroughly enjoyed doing our bit for Race for Life at the Royal Cornwall Showground in Wadebridge on Sunday 23rd June. Although there was a strong and cold wind, the weather remained dry for our 5km walk. Thanks to the generous support of our family, friends and work colleagues, so far we have raised an amazing £1631,25 (including gift aid) for the fight against cancer. We hope that you will like our pink fluffy boas!
Once again, a big thank you for your support for this great cause.

Lerryn & District Produce Association

June 11th 2013


63rd Annual Show, Saturday 3rd August at 2pm


The weather over the last week or so has been sublime, with just enough rain to turn the hedgerows into Cornwall’s own flower displays. It’s a choice between sitting still and absorbing the beauty of it all…. or mowing, strimming, weeding, pruning and planting. We suggest getting your deckchairs out and planning your entries for the annual produce show!

Thank you to everyone who came along to the Plant Sale and Coffee Morning last month.  Your marvellous support helped us raise more money than ever before and this will secure the staging of the Annual Produce Show on Saturday 3rd August.

Apart from the best and most beautiful displays of fruits and vegetables, flowers and food, we can promise you a great afternoon of entertainment including cream teas and a raffle, accompanied by music from our house band, ‘Anything Goes’ – so it’s just up to you to come and join in. Canon John Halkes will be officially opening the show at 2.30pm. Entry is 50p for adults - children are free.

If you would like to exhibit something, you will need to fill out an entry form. These are available at the shop or the pub. Your completed entry forms should be delivered to Rosemary Weatherhogg, Trelinhay, Lerryn by 10pm on Wednesday 31st July. 

…and don’t forget that in the Novelty Class, we’re looking for The Tastiest Tomato. Please don’t let us down – we’re looking forward to this one!

Here are some produce pictures to inspire you in your growing efforts for the show.




Our in-house expert says:

This month is a good time to put your tender plants into their final growing positions as frosts are over. This is also the time to plant aubergines, brussels, calabrese, cauliflowers, celery, celeriac, cucumbers, kale, leeks, basil, sweetcorn. 

See you on 3rd August!

Lerryn & District Produce Association

May 27th 2013


Firstly, the Produce Association would like to say a big thank you to all of you who planted seeds, grew and donated plants for our annual Plant Sale and Coffee Morning. It made the day a great success and as always, we are grateful for your support. The money we make on the day goes towards the Produce Association being able to keep our Annual Show going for another year – and believe it or not, this August will see the 63rd show, which we think is something pretty special

We would also thank the WI for their delicious hard work!



Saturday 3rd August, Lerryn Memorial Hall, 2.00pm

Schedules for the show are now available from Lerryn River Stores or from Brian and Penny Philp. 

This year we have introduced a new category in the Novelty Class: we’re looking for Lerryn’s Tastiest Tomato – this one is not just about good looks but also about great flavour. We can’t wait to judge the results!

There are two inspiring titles in the Photography competition ‘Shadows’ for the Under 16’s, and ‘Happiness’ in the Adult class, and we hope to have lots of entries so that we can cover the back wall with creativity! Don’t forget – we’re not looking for the next David Bailey – we just want ordinary pictures that reflect our lives in this beautiful location. 

Come and join us for a great traditional afternoon, including cream teas, a raffle and live music. Doors open at 2.00pm, admission is 50p, and children are FREE!

John Halkes will be opening the show for us at 2.30pm.



Please don’t forget to return your prizewinners’ cups to Sue and John Hancock .



This is a busy month now the soil has warmed-up, and if it’s not too wet the seeds should do well. Not to worry if you’ve been a bit slow off the mark, as many vegetables can be planted this month – such as courgettes, French beans, peas and runner beans that can be sown direct into the ground from mid-month.

Thieves about in Lerryn

May 26th 2013

You will shocked to hear that on three occasions so far this year, money raised for the Lerryn Memorial Hall through the sale of books on Prue Cornwall's garden wall was stolen. The crime has been reported to the police. Please be vigilant and if you notice anybody behaving suspiciously, please challenge them and report their activity to the police. It would be a huge shame if the Village Hall had to stop this fund raising activity.
