Lerryn & District Produce Association
May 27th 2013
PLANT SALE SUCCESS
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!
THE ANNUAL PRODUCE SHOW
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.
CALL FOR CUPS
Please don’t forget to return your prizewinners’ cups to Sue and John Hancock .
OUR IN-HOUSE EXPERT SAYS…
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.

Mevagissey Wet Fish

Just a reminder that Phil of Mevagissey Wet Fish comes to Lerryn on Mondays. He arrives around 10.30am but sometimes is slightly delayed. He will remain in the car park until about 12.30pm. The fish is freshly caught off Mevagissey unless the weather is too bad for the boats to go out. Fish can be ordered in advance by phoning the telephone numbers above.

It would seem that Keith has now got a clearer idea of when the repairs to the bridge will start (10th June). The power of the media! Watch this space!
The Hall Walk
May 14th 2013
This is a reminder that our next event is this Sunday 19th May. We will be walking the Hall Walk, looking for birds, orchids and butterflies, and if the weather is half decent we should see plenty of all.
We will meet at Caffa Mill car park at 1030h, get the ferry across, and then walk to Polruan where we will get the foot ferry back. This walk will take 2-3 hours depending on speed, and is slightly strenuous in places. Please wear sensible footwear and bring waterproofs, a drink and some lunch. If you have them, binoculars and guide books may be useful too.
If you have any queries please contact Terry on 01726 832036.

Return To Lyonesse - Mike O’Connor & Barbara Griggs
An event omitted from this year’s printed Festival programme is Mike O’Connor and Barbara Griggs’ performance: Return To Lyonesse - a tale of the lost Celtic lands: Lyonesses, Ys and Cantre’r Gwaelod.
Based on ancient Cornish and Breton texts, Return To Lyonesse is a lively, atmospheric and entertaining show, which is a mixture of powerful oral storytelling and achingly beautiful music. The performance is preceded by a short illustrated talk on the legendary origins of the tale.
Return To Lyonesse will be performed at Fowey Parish Church on Monday 13th May, 8.00pm. Tickets cost £8.50 and may be booked online here
That’s all for now. You can keep up-to-date with all Festival news at our Facebook page and on Twitter: @FoweyFestival1.
See you in May! Best wishes,
The Fowey Festival of Words and Music Team
