Summer At Last
With the approach of summer, we hope to see many people enjoying our lovely sandy beach. Our maintenance team work hard to keep the beach and seafront area clean and tidy. We have some new bins on the seafront as well as our "beach library" cages on the beach - for beach toys and equipment to be re-used.
The Swim Zone buoys are back out in the bay. These are designed to help keep watercraft and swimmers apart from each other - as we want everyone to be able to safely enjoy the sea. Please always check the tide time and wind direction when swimming or using water craft. Remember that deck chairs, loungers and kayaks (and all safety equipment) are available to rent from Looe Beach Hire who are right on the promenade (they will even carry the deck chairs onto the beach for you).
It is now Bathing Water Quality season and we receive daily updates from the Environment Agency about predicted water quality - all this information is displayed on the main entrance to the beach.
The Old Guildhall Museum and Gaol is open with some new displays for 2023. Although a physically small building, there is lots to see and do - not least the 15th century building! Our wonderful band of volunteers have worked with Access Cornwall to make the building as accessible as possible for all our visitors. We look forward to seeing you in the Museum.
We continue our work on the Wooldown by creating bee glades and wild flower meadows. We work alongside conservationists to manage this gorgeous area in an responsible manner.
The Guildhall Tea Room is found on the ground floor of the Guildhall. This is run by volunteers and is open six days a week from 10am - midday. Please pop in and have a cuppa and a chat - everyone is welcome.
Many of us know tht Looe is very close to paradise and now BBC viewers will know Looe as Shipton Abbott in Beyond Paradise. The series was filmed in many locations but Looe featured very strongly - our Guildhall was transformed into the Police Station - how many places and faces did you recognise?
