Decoration and Donation

It's been a busy week with the chaps in painting the library, builders fixing rogue downpipes and Graham putting together a new display of recently donated items from the Isle of Man Museum. After Gerald Gardner died, the artifacts from the museum he took over from Cecil Williamson eventually ended up at Ripley's Believe It or Not in the USA. These items were then obtained by a person in New York who has very kindly donated them to the Museum in Boscastle. A Circular route indeed! Simon Costin was good enough to organise the collection and transfer of items from the US to Cornwall so we thank him very much for that. A Press Release on the donation will be coming out soon with more details but in the meantime, below is a picture of Graham's efforts with the display.
To the right we have some pics of the lovely Martin and Paul painting away in the library.

Divine Amusement

Graham was very amused a couple of days ago when a representative from a South Western leaflet distribution company came into the Museum to ask him if he would like to have a leaflet stand in the front entrance. The representative looked rather distressed when Graham said he would not entertain the idea even if he was paid a million pounds. It turned out this was the same company that had recently refused to take the museum's business and place leaflets around the North Cornwall area - on religious grounds!! Looking embarrassed and suggesting he knew exactly who Graham had spoken to, he apologised and left. I wonder how many times this poor chap has been knocked back due to the actions of his boss.
