As those of you who have visited the museum know, we collect written comments from people on their way out to display on the board outside. We'll occasionally put some of these on the blog so our e-visitors can read them too. My favourite for the day, which I haven't included, was from Churton age 6 who says 'I liked the goat who had a beard'. Most amusing! The favourite artefacts from the latest selection of comments seem to be 'Harry' (our medieval tarred head), the stuffed cat, and the crystal balls. Many people are return visitors who have visited many times. We try to change something each year to keep things interesting fro our repeat customers. Our retail is becoming a bit more adventurous as well, with some new t shirt colours added to the range and some one off glass pieces by Frank Timmins, local glass artist. I'll put a detailed note about the new t shirts (with photos) in the next blog.

Missing Camera

We've been contacted by a lady who has lost her camera outside the museum. The date was May 3rd around one o'clock. She had photos of her holiday in Somerset, Devon & Cornwall & is very distressed by its disappearance. A reward has been offered. I have no details of what type of camera it is but if anyone has any knowledge of the lost item please contact us & we'll send your information to the lady in question. I know it's a long shot but if we can help in any way we will. Thanks for your assistance on this one dudes.

Back from Australia

Well, I arrived back from Australia yesterday after 7 weeks and I must say it's very pleasant to be back home despite the jetlag. I can now update the blog more regularly with the latest happenings! Whilst in Australia I went along to the Mind Body & Spirit Festival and met She D'Montford, editor of Spellcraft magazine. They have done an article on the Museum of Witchcraft and we're hoping to build the connection so we can enhance Aussie/UK relations even further. Cassandra Easson was also there on a speaking tour and she has just released yet another book, Pagan in the City. What a prolific writer she is! The book should be released in the UK in a week or two I believe, so Cassandra fans should keep an eye out. I'll pop a link on for her website.

Happy May Day

Graham was up not so bright but very early to witness sunrise from a stone circle on Bodmin Moor yesterday. He then went off to Padstow to see the children's Oss dance to the haunting May Day tune. All before opening the museum! What a dedicated chap he is. Here are some lovely pics to prove it.
