St Cleer Parish Projects Group

This group was set up in 1998 as the Millennium Group to organise celebrations and commemoration of the new century.

To raise money for this project we produced a millennium calendar with views of the local area financed with some cash flow funding borrowed from the parish council, which we repaid in full with enough surplus to produce the medallions.

Other activities to celebrate the millennium included a walk of the parish boundaries, which took place in stages over three Sundays, and an art and craft Safari which was held in all the small community halls around the parish and in St Cleer church.

We also obtained funding for the group who produced the millennium map of St Cleer. This is a large wall hanging, currently in St Cleer church, embroidered to show the layout of the parish with the border of local history.

During the life of the group we were asked to undertake environmental enhancements at Trethevy Quoit, which was accomplished with rural key funding of approximately £10,000. The triangle of land, kindly donated, was cleared and tidied, parking spaces were built and an interpretation panel in several languages including Cornish was installed. We also included an installation site for the parish map which was in production.

When the work of this group was complete we realised its value. It's Constitution stated that it must cease on 30th June 2000 and at the meeting that evening it was reborn as St Cleer Parish Projects Group.
