My daughter's wedding (update)

October 1st 2011

We would like to say a great big 'thank you' to anyone in Lerryn who helped make my daughter Catherine and Jim's day on Saturday the 10th such a splendid, joyful occasion.  As well as people who were directly involved, it was also delightful to see so many locals coming out to watch the new Mr and Mrs Harris' arrival by water from Golant church, and our procession to the Memorial Hall for the reception.

If you helped us in any way, no matter how big or how small, please accept our thanks - I'm not able to name everyone, but you know who you are!  (Mary Wittamore and family)

And below are two photographs that have just been sent to the Website:


 Here are a couple of photos of the wedding of Catherine Wittamore and Jim Harris on Saturday the 10th of September.  The ceremony took place in the church at Golant, where Catherine grew up, followed by cream teas in the Red Store (thanks, Post Office!) and a party in the Memorial Hall.  As you can see, the bride and groom arrived by water.

Duckling Update

September 20th 2011

On Monday evening (19th September) there were still 5 mallard ducklings with their mother on the river.  These late brood ducklings seem to have a better survival rate than the earlier broods.


Six other new arrivals together with their mother have been seen on the river over the last week.  These ducklings were protected through their first weeks by Ginny and Heulyn and now seem well established.  In the photo below, it is difficult to tell which of the white ducks is the mother.
