May 9 2005

Welcome to the new look web diary for the Museum of Witchcraft in Boscastle. The previous updates on the museum's "post flood progress" were so popular that we decided to keep it going so people can see the ongoing developments.

The reopening event was extremely successful and Boscastle itself is starting to get back on its feet. Most of the shops along Bridge Walk including the Bakery and the Rock Shop have reopened but the Spinning Wheel Restaurant is now planning to be open for around May 27.

We are pleased to announce that Kay's Transport delivered our library books last week. Five pallets have been safely kept at the Maritime Museum in Falmouth since the flood and we are extremely pleased to see them back. It is a huge task to get the books back on the shelves so the library will not be reopening immediately. We hope to reopen in early June. I will announce the reopening on this site.

Mike Howard has donated over a thousand books which have taken us a while to catalogue. Other recent donations include all of William G. Gray's books and several interesting Crowley titles which will fill some gaps in our collection.

Graham managed to get a week's holiday and flew out to Portugal where he had a "restful but boring time." On his return he was touched to see Cornish Pagan Wheel Magazine had dedicated a section to businesses and individuals who wanted to thank him for his hard work and congratulate him on his well deserved Coastguard's Commendation for getting the ball rolling in the rescue operations during the flood.

There will be regular updates to this site and I will be posting photos as soon as I work out how. Keep checking on my progress in this exciting Blog world as I learn new internet skills!!
