News From East Looe Town Trust

  Changes at the Trust This summer is a time of change at the Trust.  Our long-term stalwart Admin Manager, Mrs Judy Martin, announced her retirement from next March after more than 10 years with the Trust, and Steve Cole from our Maintenance Team has taken retirement. These changes prompted Trustees to review how we organise our staffing and the way we work to help us deliver on our Charitable Objects in future years.   We have decided to reinstate the role of Trust Manager, which has been taken on by Anona Vazquez-Masson and we are recruiting for an Office Administrator to support her in that role. Our Maintenance Manager, Antony Scarah, now has full-time support from Bi... Read more >>

Wooldown Bee Glades Year Two Progress Update

As the spring flowers appear on the Wooldown the bee project enters its second year. Patrick Saunders from Kernow Ecology Long horned Bee Project has been working with East Looe Town Trust to protect the very rare Long Horned Mining Bee. The bee has declined by 75% in Cornwall it is now only found on about 7 sites. The main problem for this bee is the decline or lack of traditional flowery meadows. The Trust and Kernow Ecology have created 2 bee glades and one large meadow on the publicly accessible Wooldown East Looe.

About the East Looe Town Trust

The East Looe Town Trust, a registered charity, owns open areas such as the East Looe Beach and Seafront and the Wooldown, as well as buildings, including the Old Guildhall and Gaol, which houses the Museum, the “new” (1878) Guildhall and a number of other properties.

The Trust is responsible for the maintenance of all these areas and buildings for the benefit of the community now and in the future. We have three members of staff, one in the office and two keeping the public areas looking attractive and the buildings in a proper state of repair. All of this can be expensive and we receive no grant from Cornwall Council or Looe Town Council for these purposes. Our income derives mainly from leases and the seafront carpark which, accompanied by constant downward pressure on costs, enable us (just) to balance the books. Where funds are available we make modest local charitable donations.

We are often surprised by some of the issues that we have to deal with like waste removal and bathing water quality but it all serves to keep us on our toes! We strive to work cooperatively with the town’s other bodies and the benefits of that are seen in developments like the Looe Bathing Water Quality Partnership.

We try to keep the public informed on our website and through social media. We welcome interest and enquiries and, within our limited resources will try to respond as best we can.
