Lerryn Course

Sensei Richard and his students will be hosting us for our next course at Lanreath on Sunday the 9th of September.

It will be in Lanreath Village Hall, PL13 2NY.

Note: the nearest village shop is three miles away, so its a good idea to bring food.


Head west from Liskeard on the A38.

At the roundabout take the second exit onto the A390 signposted for Looe and St Austell.

After two miles you will pass through a village. Take the left turn just after the village onto the B3359 signposted to Looe.

Four miles along this road take a right, signposted for Polruan, Bodinnick, Lerryn and a car ferry.

After a quarter mile, take the first left.

The hall is just on the right.

Membership forms

Due to a change in legislation we are obliged to comply with the new General Data Protection Regulations which come into force on the 25th May 2018, and as such we have an updated Membership form which all existing members will need to fill out and sign.

The change in the law gives you the right (amongst other things) to edit, delete or request a copy of the data any organisation holds about you.

Our school only keeps information for our own use and does not share it with any other parties. If you have any questions about this change or its implications please speak with Anthony.

Teachers please download and print out the new form from here and get all your students to complete one. Please then return them to Sensei.
