Broadband Connection Speed

September 14th 2011

Richard has asked the following question in the Discussion Forum:

Just wondering what broadband connection speeds people are getting in the village, and if any providers are better than others. You can use [external link] to find your speed.

It would be very interesting to find out the answer to this question so that we can see how the situation varies throughout the village and which providers give the best results.  It would be most helpful if you could use the external link above and record the result.  Post your answer on the Discussion Forum under the topic heading "Connection Speeds".

The Annual St Veep and Boconnoc C.H.C.T Church Crawl

September 11th 2011

This year, the crawl will take place on Tuesday 20th September, leaving Lerryn car park at 10.15am.  As usual,  painstaking research has gone into investigating three or four worthy churches and even more painstaking research has been devoted to investigating a suitable hostelry for lunch!  The most expert driver for the Lerryn minibus has also promised his services.

Apart from widening our knowledge, the object of the expedition is to raise money for the Cornwall Historic Churches Trust which has assisted all churches in our benefice (except Bradoc).  It has become even more important, as it is the intermediary with the National Churches Trust and with Heritage.

If you wish to join the Church Crawl, you should contact Elizabeth St John or Andrew Foot.  The minibus has of course limited capacity but some usually follow in their cars.

St Veep Harvest Festival

September 11th 2011

The Service for Harvest will be held in St Veep Church on Friday 23rd September starting at 7.30 p.m. This will be followed by a traditional Pasty Supper. Please come and join us.                           P.W.

The cost will be £6.00 per person for members, but the visit is open to      non-members at an additional cost of £1.00 which is the Annual Subscription.

 In the drizzle and mist of Friday night and under the watchful eye of this well known Lerryn feline there were still five mallard ducklings with their mother on the river.  To see the family click on the button below
