From the SAVE OUR HUT! project:
People of Newquay, residents of Cornwall, holiday makers, history enthusiasts and you, can help save Huer’s hut! We need to raise £10,000 to save the hut.
Newquay's historic Huer’s Hut needs saving by the people of Newquay and beyond, with a little support and a few pledges the community can regain control over the 14th century building.
Cormac [Cornwall Council contractors] have visited the hut and made the area safer and removed blocks from the roof (covered it in concrete). The hut was refurbished in spring 2012 but unfortunately it is really suffering at the moment due to its exposed position.
The state of the Hut is really bad, it needs specialist treatment as it is made of Lime mortar and can only be done by people able to use Lime. The building needs to be able to 'breathe' and the weather has made the hut deteriorate so badly and the funds have not been in place to regularly maintain it.
The money will be used to help repair the building and to fund the ongoing maintenance.
