Welcome visitors

On 17 May St Agnes Museum warmly welcomed 23 members of Mylor Local History Group to the Museum. Welcomed by our Chairman, Roger Radcliffe, the group had a chance to look around the exhibits, including the new Surfing exhibition, before finishing their visit with tea and biscuits.

Later the same day, Roger Radcliffe welcomed a group of seven Germans, shown here and accompanied by Barry Gamble, who are applying for World Heritage Site status for their industrial region of the Ruhr, and wanted to know how being a part of the Mining World Heritage Site benefits the Museum. Once again the group had the opportunity to look around the exhibits before going to watch the sunset at Wheal Coates.

There were all the usual stalls, with the Museum Shop stall raising the highest individual total – £100. All the stalls did well, and there was some beautiful bric-à-brac, as well as Cornish books on sale.

A valuable total of £430 was raised, while Membership Secretary, Mary Wilson, took £120 in subscriptions.
