The Museum held a Drinks & Nibbles celebration at the Museum on 26 April to thank everyone who had contributed in some way to its two major new exhibitions on Tony Giles, the well-known St Agnes painter and village character, and its Miners Overseas exhibition in its new cabinet generously provided by St Agnes Local Improvements Committee. There are also new donations to the medal collection and a loan of a Henry Bone miniature in the Opie cabinet to celebrate.
Chairman, Roger Radcliffe, thanked everyone who had braved the stormy weather and said the support of those who had lent or donated Tony Giles items was greatly valued. He particularly thanked John Branfield for his help in curating the exhibition, Paul and Jan Giles for their donations and Alan Dumper for loaning a painting for the evening only. He finished by proposing a toast to the memory of Tony and his wife, Hilary. A very sociable evening was enjoyed by all.
