Kresen Kernow consultation coming to Launceston next week

Interested in Cornwall’s history, archaeology and culture?  Want to get involved with shaping the future of the service that cares for the millions of records including documents, photographs, books, maps and databases that capture this information?   Then why not have your say on the development of the Kresen Kernow project?  

Funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Cornwall Council, the new centre will house Cornwall Council’s archives and historic collections, and will be built on the old brewery site in Redruth. 

The scheme is due for completion in 2017 and members of the project team are now offering people the opportunity to share their views on the services, events and activities they want to see the project and the building provide.

The formal consultation will come to:

Launceston - Tuesday 22nd April. Launceston Town Hall, 10am to 3pm.

Penzance - Thursday 1st May. Pop-Up Penzance (in Peasgoods, the old pharmacy in Market Jew Street), 10am to 3pm

Truro – Saturday 3rd May. Lemon Quay, Farmers Market, 10am to 3pm.

Bude – Saturday 10th May. Bude Castle Heritage Centre, 10am to 3pm.

These are the latest in a series of consultation roadshows which have been taking place in venues across Cornwall to enable people to learn more about the project, and share ideas and suggestions for the archive centre and its services.  For full details of the events and locations visit www.cornwall.gov.uk/kresenkernow or find us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/kresenkernow.

There is also a survey on the Council’s website which people can use to give their views. You can read more about the project and find the online survey at www.cornwall.gov.uk/kresenkernow.
