Bright Sparks Project


 'Remembering People from the Past' is the focus for this exciting new project which Amanda Davidge, the Museum Curator, is managing.

At our first meeting the group decided to focus on the Hext family, in particular Miss Frances Hext, who was a member of a professional family of lawyers  and army officers who came to Lostwithiel in the mid-18th century. Frances wrote and published books of local significance, namely 'Memorials of Lostwithiel & Restormel,' privately published in 1891.

There will be much more to tell you about Frances Hext as, over the next few months, we unravel her story to display in the museum. If you are interested in joining this group but didn't sign up at the outset, it's not too late to get involved.
