From the Cornwall Records Office:
The Kresen Kernow consultation programme is now in full swing. We launched the programme at the end of February when the online questionnaire went live and held our first roadshow event in Redruth. We had over 220 people drop in to find out about the project, the site and the services, and we were delighted that our project and the redevelopment of the brewery site were met with such enthusiasm and support. We have also attended events at the Tremough campus (Penryn), Liskeard, Wheal Martyn and a roadshow at St Austell, where we spoke to lots of people and also took part in a great radio interview.
We are holding more roadshows across Cornwall over the next few months, giving you a chance to discuss the project and the new and improved service with members of the team. The roles of the three services which will come together in the new building will also be explained (i.e. Cornwall Record Office, the Cornish Studies Library and the Cornwall and Scilly Historic Environment Service). There are also opportunities for people to sign up and get involved in the project, as well as share thoughts and make suggestions. The dates and locations are:
