Museum Hosts Cornwall museum curators and volunteers

Cornwall Museums Group were hosted by Constantine Museum volunteers on October 10th for the group’s autumn meeting. More than 20 curators, officers and volunteers from as far afield as Launceston and Geevor met in the Tolmen Centre to learn about new funding initiatives, Writers Block (an initiative to develop children’s writing), the promotion of the Cornish Language and to discuss future development of the group.

The Constantine Museum Collection Coordinator provided a context for the museum and explained how the collection had been developed initially by the members of the Constantine History Group, led by Ronnie Rashleigh, and later as part of the Constantine Enterprises Company family by volunteer curator Tracey Clowse and more recently by the Museum Management Team.

Several participants stayed for a pasty lunch before visiting Port Navas to explore a late Georgian harbour initiative, the brainchild of Jonathan Mayn in 1830.
