Launcells Parish Council in conjunction with Launcells Local History Group received a grant of £1,500 from Cornwall Heritage Trust.
The Local History Group has a collection of materials – original documents, photos, oral recordings etc – which had previously been stored in various group member homes but this new facility has enabled better and guaranteed future access to the wider community.
The grant enabled the creation of a safe and secure building to house the parish archives. Volunteers have been receiving training and are in the process of cataloguing and digitising records.
