grant for slipway at Point Quay
young people from Point & Penpol have received some
great news. The five got together to complete a Grant
Application and media presentation to Our Money Your
Dream. A grant of £1409 was awarded last week,
following the presentation by the children in Penryn.
A delighted Ewen Abram-Moore, Chair of Point Quay Association
said “Thanks to the efforts of five local youngsters,
we have now reached our funding target, and work can
soon commence on the slipway extension.”
the presentation last week, Ben Speirs and Hannah Fox
pointed out the safety issues for local children saying
“The current drop from the Quay wall makes it
very difficult to recover water craft, so we can only
be in the water for a short time around high tide. In
practice, we can only use Restronguet Creek for a few
hours a week during term time”.
Mr Abram-Moore added “It has been a terrific fund
raising effort by the whole community, and it is very
fitting that our youngsters have put the final block
in place. We`re very proud of them”.
