Museum Friends enjoy pre-season get-togethers

Museum Friends have had a busy sociable March.  First, we held our Spring Coffee Morning on 12 March when we were grateful for a fine sunny morning after so much rain.  Items new for this season from the Museum shop were on sale, including colourful jute shopping bags, a range of striking nature cards, coasters, and a chough made of St Agnes tin.  We also had a book stall selling exclusively Cornish books which aroused much interest, as well as our usual raffle, cake stall, second-hand books, bric-à-brac, and delicious filter coffee. The morning raised a useful £374 for our funds.

New items in the Museum shop

The following Saturday, Friends of the Museum met at the Museum for drinks and nibbles, kindly sponsored by Mandy Kimmins and Printout Printing Services, and for a first look at items acquired by the Museum over the winter.  It was a very convivial morning, much appreciated by all.
