Community Responsibility

Playing our part in the local community

Most of the Hine Downing team have lived and worked in Cornwall for many years. Our close ties within the local area help us in our professional lives – and they are important to us outside work, as well. Both as a practice and as individuals we take great pleasure in supporting many cultural, maritime, sporting and young people’s activities.

As a company, we are strongly committed to a policy of promoting local organisations and events which have a positive and beneficial impact on the local community. To that end, Hine Downing regularly sponsors a range of ventures including the Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society, Duchy Opera, Falmouth Art Gallery and the town’s rugby, football and cricket clubs.

We have presented a perpetual trophy to the Sunbeam Class of the Royal Cornwall Yacht Club, and we are a Corporate Founder Member of the National Maritime Museum Cornwall.

Through the personal interests of various members of the firm, we are also involved with many local organisations including, RNLI Falmouth, King Charles School, Gwennap Riding Club and Pendennis Brass.
