Blue Plaque Unveiling
As part of the Cornish Seal Sanctuary´s 60th Anniversary celebrations, Friday 13th July 2018 was a very special day. Everyone had great pleasure in unveiling a commemorative blue plaque dedicated to the Sanctuary founders, Ken and Mary Jones.

The Sanctuary were joined by lots of special people that were an inherent part of the Sanctuary´s humble beginnings and history, including Linda and Paul Bennett, Ken and Mary´s daughter and son-in-law.
