Lerryn.net Photo Archive

April 21st 2011

We are now putting photographs onto our Photo Archive for the year 2010. Many of the photos currently in our Photo Gallery will in due course be used by the the History Society to update the CD that was started by Esthermary Todd. We also hope that the History Society can make use of the 2010 photographs now going on Lerryn.net Photo Archive. Please look and we welcome your views through our "contact us" page.

The following objects were agreed:

Our overarching objective is to provide and maintain a community website (www.lerryn.net) to benefit the residents of Lerryn and the surrounding areas. Our website will be developed by residents for residents, unlike other village websites that have been developed purely for visitors.

We aim to:

      • Contribute to the development of the real sense of community that exists in Lerryn through sharing news and information
      • Enable those of our elderly/disabled residents, who have Internet access, to have access to news and information which they might otherwise miss out on
      • Support and celebrate the work of local community groups and charities by advertising their events, publishing their reports and giving them the opportunity to buy their own pages
      • Provide a platform where matters of interest to residents can be discussed
      • Enable former residents of Lerryn and surrounding areas, including those who have moved abroad, to keep in touch with life in Lerryn
      • Enable former residents of Lerryn and surrounding areas to reconnect with their past by publishing archive materials
      • Contribute to the on-going development of the village archive by making our news items and photographs available to other community groups, such as the History Society
      • Facilitate the commercial life of the area by providing space on the website whilst ensuring that the costs of providing these services are fully recovered
      • Investigate ways in which those residents who do not have the Internet can have access to the information posted on the website

Film Club season ends with The LadyKillers

April 17th 2011

The last of the great Ealing Comedies, "The Ladykillers" is a wonderfully macabre black comedy.  Ealing stalwart Alec Guinness delivers a typically mesmerising performance as Professor Marcus, a criminal mastermind.  His latest plan is to dupe a sweet old lady, Mrs Wilberforce (Johnson), into picking up the loot for him and his mismatched gang after they rob a security van.  The gang consists of a genial bruiser (Green); Jack-the-lad rogue (Sellers); doddery old army type (Parker); and cold-hearted assassin (Lom). Under the guise of playing string quintets, all five meet at her house to plan the robbery.  However, they all got more than they bargained for!

It was a great film to end the 2010-2011 season and we cannot wait to receive our renewal letters to find out what the 2011-2012 programme has in store for us.

A big thank you to the committee for all their hard work.

                                            Hi!                                                               Little Quay


April 6th 2011

Saturday 21st May, 10.30 in Lerryn Memorial Hall.

Please make a note of this date and show your support for this unmissable event!
Come along and help us to raise the funds for this years’ 61st Lerryn Produce Show in August. It now costs around £1000 to put on this show, and the Plant Sale is the key event in raising the money that makes it happen.

Whilst you’re toiling away in the garden this Spring, why not bring on a few extra seedlings or pot up some unwanted plants and cuttings for us to sell at the show – they’ll be gratefully received!

The plant sale is the place to pick up some great bargains - young plants for the vegetable plot and flowering plants and shrubs to brighten up your garden. Have a coffee, join or renew your membership, and don’t forget to return  your prize-winning cups of last year to Sue Hancock.

…. and by the way, don’t forget the show also includes a photography class – last year saw some great entries! So here are the subjects for the photography competition this year:

Under 16’s: A Self-portrait
Adults: All in a working day

Message from the police

April 5th 2011

This message relates to police log 477 02 April 2011.

The improving weather at this time of year usually brings out the rogue builders, gardeners, roofers etc. We have had several reports already.

Please be aware of the risks of employing tradesmen who cold call at your door which include: high - shoddy workmanship; very high prices which change as the job progresses; unnecessary work and intimidation if you don't pay promptly etc. 

It is much safer to use local tradesmen of known good reputation who should offer a written quote and a guarantee. If you feel that you have been deceived, please contact us 08452 777 444 with details of the company involved.

We ask you to make your neighbours aware, especially if elderly.

Please phone us with any information on 08452 777 444.
