Despite the wind and gales, many Members made their way to the Museum on Saturday 28 March for our annual Members’ Preview to enjoy delicious nibbles and a variety of drinks generously provided by Mandy Kimmins and Printout Printing Services and served with a smile by Mandy, Jain, Ellie and Gracie. It was lovely to see so many people.
The display is on the first floor in the only cabinet large enough to accommodate it. Alongside the model is the recently purchased sign from the signalbox and the two train staffs. There is also a 20-minute film of the railway journey from Chacewater to Newquay. Everyone agreed that our Curator, Clare Murton, and her helpers had excelled themselves again.
Chairman, Roger Radcliffe, thanked Mandy and her helpers for a lovely morning and presented them with tokens of our appreciation.
Warm sunshine tempted our supporters to come to the Spring Coffee Morning in St Agnes Church Hall on Saturday 21 March when a fantastic £466 was raised from a variety of stalls, including a Museum Shop stall showcasing some of the items which will be on sale when the Museum is open. In addition, our Membership Secretary took £160 in subscriptions.
Cakes and bushy tomato plants proved popular and everyone enjoyed a good cup of coffee and a chat. Warmest thanks to all who supported it.
Our 31st Annual General Meeting of the St Agnes Museum Trust was held at the Methodist Church, British Road, St Agnes, on Wednesday 11 February – read about the AGM here.
