The Lizard Peninsula Heritage Trust

The Lizard Peninsula Heritage Trust, a registered charity formerly known as ‘Friends of the Lizard’ from its origins in 1997 until 2005, has published a new promotional leaflet with grant-aid from Kerrier District Council’s Community Grant budget. The leaflet sets out the Trust’s evolving wide interest in all matters that contribute to the natural, historic and man-made environment of the Lizard Peninsula, with the twin aims of seeking their protection and enhancement, while promoting their understanding and enjoyment.

Chairman of the Trust, David Richardson from Coverack, said “This general leaflet is the first in this year’s publications series. Subsequent titles will include ‘Conservation Areas’ and ‘Historic Buildings’, followed by ‘Archaeology’ and ‘Parks & Gardens’ probably in the following year. We hope that it will give both residents and visitors a brief introduction to the very special environmental qualities of the Lizard Peninsula, but also an insight to our aims and objectives.”

Kerrier District Council’s portfolio holder for Leisure, Arts & Culture, Cllr Loveday Jenkin, said “We are delighted to have supported this publications initiative by the Lizard Trust, which will increase the public’s awareness of this unique part of Kerrier’s area. It is important that we all work together to protect and enhance our environmental heritage.”
Kerrier’s community grant scheme offers grants of up to £2000 to support community groups that aspire to the Council’s Community Strategy and the work of the Environment team. The grants are designed to increase participation in cultural activities, sport/active recreation, encourage increased use of Kerrier’s open spaces and support the aspirations of Parish and Town plans. For further information or an application form, please contact Kerrier’s Regeneration team on 01209 614061 or by email at

The leaflet, with membership details, will be freely available at various public outlets in Helston and the Lizard area, or by contacting David Richardson on 01326 280058 or by Email at
