 The Advent Window Trail has become an attractive feature of life in Lostwithiel during that special time of year. We hope that you were able to pause outside the Museum & appreciate the poignancy of  ' The Cease Fire Football Match'  which took place on Christmas Day in 1917. Sourcing an authentic leather football was quite a challenge & our thanks go to Marazion Museum for their co-operation in lending this one to us. The theme for the current window display is ' A Spoonful of History'  which looks back at some of the ' pills, potions & practices ' prescribed in times past. Mind boggling ......it's a wonder some of us are still here to tell the tale !!!  Many thanks to Deborah Clough, ably assisted by Amanda Davidge, for this very interesting window display. Deborah is now busily planning the next one !   (Click on image for larger view)
