Joint Press Release Rusty Bucket - Looe Development Trust - Looe Harbour Commissioners 26.02.2020
some years now the Youth of Looe have been well served by Looe Development
Trust’s Millpool Centre based “Looe Youth Project”. In December 2019, their
youth leader stood down and urgent efforts made for a timely replacement.
During this fallow period an opportunity to explore the possibility of a
permanent (dedicated) youth space was undertaken by local community charity,
The Rusty Bucket. After much positive dialogue with Looe Harbour Commissioners,
an unused first floor unit was identified and will be made available for
suitable conversion in the near future.
The re-location has the support of Looe Development Trust’s Chair, Justin Spreckley “We have very much enjoyed creating and hosting the Looe Youth Project, but welcome this new future and all the advantages of a dedicated youth premises, we wish the youth and Rusty Bucket every continued success”.
Looe Harbour Commission’s Chief Executive, Tina Hicks, was also pleased to confirm their support for the project, (working title The Haven). “We were very impressed with the commitment of Barney Barron (RB Youth Leader) and Paul Penhaligan (Rusty Bucket Chair) - The Harbour Commissioners are 100% behind their vision for Looe youth and believe it could grow into a genuine town asset.”
Barney Barron, on behalf of the Rusty Bucket, advised “The work now begins. We are presently building a team of volunteers - from painters to youth night assistants - and looking also at everything from wifi to toilets and much more in between!”
