Welcome to the website of East Looe Town Trust. We aim to keep the community and visitors informed about what the Trust does throughout the year to support the local community and help make Looe a wonderful destination for visitors.
East Looe Town Trust have installed a water fountain on East Looe Seafront, close to the ramp leading to the beach.
This free to use facility is provided to help reduce single use plastic containers. The water fountain enables most types of water containers and is perfect for access to easy and clean water.
The simple push button device has a filtered water flow of one gallon per minute.
Phil Gibson, Chair of East Looe Town Trust said ‘We are delighted to provide this facility at no cost to all users and to help everyone (and their dogs) remain hydrated. We hope it will make a positive contribution to the reduction of plastic use in our beautiful town’.
It reinforces other measures the Trust have recently taken to reduce waste and help make the area environmentally friendly.

There have been a few changes to Trust staff in the last few months – Jane Day is now in place as Trust Manager and she has been joined by Nina Bond as Office Administrator. Our maintenance team of Antony and Billy have been joined for the summer, by Sim Daley. You will often see them out and about, not only looking after the beach, seafront and Wooldown areas but also doing essential maintenance on our historic buildings – such as the Guildhall and the Museum.
Our beautiful, multi award-winning museum is open until November. Due to the hard work and dedication of our volunteers, our museum was one of five Cornish museums to benefit from a successful bid to the Coastal Communities Fund to use virtual and augmented reality technology to take visitors on a compelling immersive and interactive journey to the past.
We are hoping that visitors and locals will have the time and suitable weather to enjoy our wonderful beach. The team work hard to maintain the beach and would ask that you use the suitable bins – including the cages for larger bulky items. The Trust work closely with other agencies with regard to water quality and conserving our environment and hope that you will all help keep our beach litter-free. With help from Looe in Bloom we are now working on improvements to the appearance of the Rose Garden. For further details on our projects and work within the town, please visit our website - www.eastlooetowntrust.co.uk
We look forward to supporting many local events, of which Looe Carnival Week is one of them - with activities starting on 29th July, with the sand modelling competition on the beach on Wednesday 31st July and of course the Grand Carnival Procession on Saturday 3rd August.

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.
