Local stories

'CREATIVITEA'

We invited pupils from Looe Primary School and Duloe Primary School to take their families for a tea party on the train to share memories from the Looe Valley Line's past.

 

The day was brought alive thanks to the Creativitea concept invented and championed by Cornwall's unmistakable pink-coiffeured 'word dancer' Sally Crabtree - with cup cakes, sparkles and a sense of impish fun helping to power both the journey and the stories along. Enjoy...

TALES FROM THE COMMUNITY

At a trio of drop-in days held in Liskeard and Looe, local residents took a seat on our couch to share their stories and recollections of the branch line.
