The Museum is delighted to announce that it has been awarded Full Accreditation by Arts Council England. This will last for three years. The Museum has to achieve the same standard as large national institutions like the British Museum, despite being entirely volunteer-run. Well done to our Curator who spearheaded the effort.
St Agnes Museum Trust’s latest Journal, No 22, has just been published
and contains much to entertain Members and non-members alike.
There are articles about two contrasting St Agnes artists, Jamaican born Cliff Tyrell (1906-94) and Arts & Crafts Stained Glass Artist, Theodora Salusbury (1875-1956); an article on the recently acquired Tywarnhayle Farm Cash Book (1867) which gives many insights into 19th century
farming life; the reminiscences of an evacuee in war time Barkla Shop; and memories of Miss Roberts’ Dame School in Goonvrea by her former pupils – and much else.
The Journal is free to Members and available to non-members at £3, plus p/p where necessary. It is an excellent read!
