Today, as part of the Government’s Culture Recovery Fund, further awards are being announced for heritage organisations across England, including £170,700 for Charlestown Harbour Ltd in St Austell and Newquay.
The Culture Recovery Fund for Heritage is administered by the National Lottery Heritage Fund, in partnership with Historic England on behalf of the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.
Commenting, St Austell and Newquay’s Member of Parliament Steve Double said:
“I am delighted to see more Government funding coming to Mid-Cornwall. This latest award from the Culture Recovery Fund demonstrates this Government’s continued commitment to helping preserve and protect our historical heritage assets, many of whom have struggled through the pandemic.”
“Charlestown Harbour is one of our most popular places for local people and visitors and is an important part of our local economy supporting jobs and local businesses in the supply chain. I am pleased to have helped secure this funding from government to help secure its future.”
Nearly 140 heritage organisations will share £15.5 million from the government’s third-round of the Culture Recovery Fund. 126 organisations caring for historic sites, buildings, museums, railways and monuments will receive £14.8 million in continuity support grants and almost £1 million in emergency grants will provide a lifeline to 12 organisations.
