Broken Witch



Some artefacts that managed to survive the 2004 flood have been unable to withstand the actions of a visitor to the museum who has damaged and partially destroyed two of our witches. The two witches in question live in the area where we collect for the Cornwall Air Ambulance. The hanging witch had been half wrenched from her chain and her arms and legs broken off. The other is a large pottery statue and the rim of her hat has been snapped off. Graham is trying to repair the more severely damaged of the artefacts but we are unable to locate the missing brim of the hat. Such a shame that people can be so vile. Luckily 99.9% of visitors are wonderful.

Sorry you are getting grief from the insecure and ignorant. Still at least it gives us reason to feel solidarity with the other misunderstood and oppressed groups of the world, religious or not and even if some of them would happily burn us all!! Hoping to visit you in October and I definitely will not be commiting any vandalism. Blessed be xxx

That's terrible; a shame to hear of such destruction. I hope Graham has some luck in repairing the most severely damaged piece.

Sorry to hear about the witches. The ones I saw in the museum last week were looking great. May have been a child?

I am very sorry to hear about the damage and sincerely hope that it was not wilful - (think of the bad karma)!

I'm so saddened to hear about the damage to the witches. I wish Graham luck with the repairs. How can people be so nasty and mean?

Blessed Be xx
