Lostwithiel Museum has been celebrating success at the first Cornwall Heritage Awards ceremony held at Scorrier House in Redruth on 20th March. The museum won the Judge's Special Award for the best overall contributions that merited 'Additional Commendation.'

We entered 4 projects in 3 categories, 3 of which were shortlisted & each awarded Highly Commended.  The shortlisted projects were:

  • The Sponsored Window Displays & the Photographic / Calendar Competition in the Innovation category,
  •  The Children's Trail in the Family Friendly category.
 Not only did the museum receive the accolade of winning the Judge's Special Award but also a cash prize from the Heritage Lottery Fund for £500 plus £200 for the Highly Commended projects to help support future developments.

The prestigious Awards were organised by South West Museum Development in collaboration with Cornwall Museums Partnership. It was a tough competition & the standard was very high. For Lostwithiel Museum to have this recognition is very special & congratulations must go to everyone who helped to make this happen.
