Heritage Heroes Award Winners 2018

Newquay Old Cornwall Society Museum

The Newquay Old Cornwall Society archaeology group work tirelessly to care for the ancient archaeological site around Newquay. Never afraid of hard work, or poor weather they work throughout the year undertaking site monitoring, clearance, provide guided tours and walks and conservation care for the ancient sites.

The Old Guildhall and Gaol

The team at Looe stepped forward to secure the future of the museum after the previous curators fell ill. They had to learn everything from scratch and worked quickly to ensure collections were safeguarded, documented and the museum was ready for the spring opening. There efforts have been richly rewarded with the new season seeing a huge increase in visitors.
