The Sheviock Memorial Hall Management Committee received £1,500 funding from the CCF’s business arm towards fencing a new footpath around the village and in particular new access gates and signage.  Cornwall 100 Club member Helen J Marks from HSBC visited the project.  

The main access road to the Rame peninsular is very busy and a serious hazard to walkers, the Sheviock Memorial Hall Management Committee was keen to improve the footpaths around and to the hall, thus avoiding the busy main road. The new path in Crafthole creates a circular walk from Crafthole and links many other footpaths and the main villages within the parish without walkers having to walk on main road.

Chris Kennedy, Chairman of Sheviock Parish Council said “The money from the Cornwall 100 Club has directly contributed to the opening of a circular path around Crafthole which also links to other villages in the Parish. This will make a real difference to the wellbeing of all ages in the community by encouraging exercise and improving road safety by allowing residents to walk away from busy main roads.

Helen J Marks, Plymouth and Cornwall Area Director of Cornwall 100 Club member HSBC, said “It is very rewarding to see how far a small grant can go in helping local communities, the ethos of the Cornwall 100 Club is getting Cornish businesses involved in helping Cornish communities.” 

Additional funding for the path was provided by SITA, Bake Saw Mill, Cornwall Councillor George Trubody from his Community Fund and the parish council.

The Cornwall 100 Club, the business arm of the CCF, granted £20,000 in March 2015 to seven community groups throughout Cornwall.
