Tractor being off-loaded after delivery
September 2019 News from the East Looe Town Trust
Throughout the summer you will have seen our hard-working maintenance team out on the beach and the seafront. We have had some lovely summer weather and are pleased that so many people visited and enjoyed their time on our beach. Our distinctive orange Kubota tractor has become a familiar sight on the beach over the years but this will now change. The Trust have been supported by other organisations in the town and have taken delivery of a replacement tractor a blue New Holland tractor which, following a competition on facebook, will have a name look out for the new tractor and follow us on facebook to find out what name it has been given.
After much hard work and co-operation with other agencies this summer saw the installation of the water refill point on the seafront. This free to use facility is easy to use and is suitable for most types of water containers. The Trust are pleased to make such a positive contribution to the reduction of single plastic use in the town and continues their work to reduce waste and improve our environment.
Despite summer coming to a close, the work doesnt end and there will now be some much needed maintenance work on some of our buildings. You may have noticed the scaffolding around the Watchtower on the seafront this is for essential maintenance of the building including replacing guttering as well as some work on the stonework, roof and windows.
The Old Guildhall Museum and Gaol has had a busy season so far, with visitors enjoying the regular puppet shows on a Tuesday. The museum is staffed by volunteers who work very hard on new displays and exhibitions as well as activities for all the family to enjoy. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer to help in the museum or help to maintain the exhibits then please contact the Trust Office for more information. The museum also has a wealth of information and photographs for those people interested in tracing their family tree. Please call in and speak to our friendly volunteers who would be delighted to help you find out more about your family as well as general information about the interesting history of our town and occupants.
