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.

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.
