Fingers crossed for the ELTT bid to the National Lottery Heritage Fund for a substantial award to protect Looe's community lifeboat heritage and the restoration of the Grade II listed Old Lifeboat Station and Watchtower.

The Trust has been delighted with the strong support for the project, following open days and public consultations.  A lot of work was put into the bid by Trust Manager Jane Day (pictured here with Trust Vice Chairman Brian Galipeau) plus trustees Petra Stephenson and Sara Hawkins.

If the bid is successful, the town will have a new all year round, free visitor attraction in the Watchtower Crew Room.  It will tell the story of the Looe Lifeboats 1866 to 1930.  We will be celebrating in words and pictures the family links between the brave lifeboat crews of the past and those of today's brave crews.

The Trust offices will occupy the first and second floors, while the old boathouse will be leased as a gallery showcasing local artists.

We are hoping that local organisations and individuals will want to help the project come to life with match-funding.

So please watch this space - and keep your fingers crossed!

About the East Looe Town Trust

The East Looe Town Trust is a registered charity and 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. Where funds are available the Trust makes modest local charitable donations.

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.
