We met many members of each community all of whom were tremendously supportive of the work the we have been doing during our National Lottery Funded project. The collections on show through our cornishmemory.com website were of great interest to our visitors. We were tremendously supported by our many volunteers who added their own thoughts and impressions of the archives which they have digitised.

The early part of the week generated significant interest in the archives of Tin Mining in the surrounding area. Many of our visitors knowing their own family histories and background in this once vital and vibrant industry.

Our sincere thanks go out to the organising committees of all the venues we visited during the week.
