Staff from The Towan Blystra, in Newquay, joined forces with other like-minded volunteers, to help to prepare the seaside town for the busy summer season ahead.

Residents and councillors also lent a hand, alongside members of staff from other businesses in the town, to help to rub down and repaint 52 benches in Newquay.

The enthusiastic group of volunteers spent four days, working in several locations around the town, and completed more than double the expected amount of benches.

The Towan Blystra team, pictured also raised £100 for CLIC Sargent in the process, being sponsored by customers and colleagues for their DIY efforts.

Shift manager Pete Aldin (pictured second right with colleagues) said: “It was hard work, but a great community project – and everyone enjoyed the challenge.”

The 27 volunteers also enjoyed a complimentary lunch at the pub on the first day.

Jenni Pagett, Cornwall Council Community Network Support Officer, said: “It was fantastic to see so many people who care about Newquay and were prepared to muck in to make it look better.

“A really big thanks to all of those who volunteered and helped to make the project a success.

“I was overwhelmed by the enthusiasm of the volunteers and hope to be able to repeat the project again, before the main summer season.”
