CHARITY FAYRE / CARNIVAL WEEK :

 Our thanks to Rotary for organising the Charity Fayre which marked the start of Carnival Week. This annual community event is yet another opportunity for locals & visitors to enjoy some fun activities whose roots date back to at least 1875 when Lostwithiel Regatta & Gala day included the Flora dance, decorated boats on the river, a carnival procession & the crowning of a gala queen. In the 1970's this developed into a week of events & since the 1990's has been organised by the Rotary Club, all of which contributes to history in the making. In previous years the museum has had a stand on the playing field but decided last year & this to try to do something different by opening the museum on the Sunday. Many thanks to those of you who paid us a visit & for your compliments which were very much appreciated.
