Porthleven Projects

Porthleven CIC was awarded £99,750 from the Government’s Coastal Communities Fund in 2013 to deliver five projects. The money is being used to:

  1. Build a vibrant Porthleven CIC website – which you are reading now!
  2. Launch our community marquee – now managed by Porthleven Football Club – @porthlevenfishermen
  3. Create and open Withy Field car park bringing additional 72 parking spaces to Porthleven and putting profits back into the community.
  4. Up-light the Bickford-Smith Institute and showcase Porthleven’s most iconic building.
  5. Develop and share the Porthleven Town Trail working with local historians, writers and photographers to create a tour around our historic harbour. This will be available as a leaflet, an app and here on our website. It will enable locals and visitors to discover more about the story of Porthleven, from humble beginnings to the present day.
