Views spot gets major spruce up

A popular viewing area above the harbour which looks out across Newquay Bay has been given a much-needed makeover.

Harbour Heights has been refurbished as part of a  community voluntary project following a collaboration between Newquay Town Council, Newquay Marine Group and Cormac.

Volunteers have jet-washed and painted the area, cut back overgrown vegetation and planted around 200 plants in new flowerbed. New flooring has been laid by local company Oltco after several tonnes of concrete was removed while Cormac has updated and regenerated the benches.

The finishing touches will see three information boards positioned along the railings to encourage visitors and locals to take in views across the bay. Each board will provide information about a different aspect of the coastline, including the history of the harbour, conservation issues and the marine species people may see whilst spending time at Harbour Heights.

The Group’s Liz Clark said: “Originally proposed to Newquay Town Council by Newquay Marine Group, the project came about after members commented the potential this incredible hidden gem had for tourists and locals alike to enjoy Newquay’s position on the north coast. With the council’s support, Newquay Marine Group was able to expand their original plans and utilise resources provided by Cormac.

"Volunteers worked over a few set weekends fuelled by tea, coffee, pasties and a passion for the project. They worked hard to achieve their goal. The information boards will be an added addition to the already world-class viewing point.

“Newquay Marine Group would like to thank all of those involved, particularly the team from Newquay in Bloom, Sean Heaney from Cormac and the volunteers who have been amazing at giving their time and enthusiasm.”

Cllr Zoe Dixon, chairman of the Footpaths and Open Spaces Committee, said: “Newquay Town Council wants to congratulate the Newquay Marine Group for their efforts in bringing this project to fruition.

“We are always looking at ways of improving the appearance of Newquay and this project does just that and we were pleased to be able to support the volunteers in the development of the scheme.”
