Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal is the most recent to send her congratulations following the fantastic news of our £1.44million Heritage Lottery Fund award. In a letter addressed to Museum Director Libby Buckley last week, the Princess’ private secretary, Captain Nick Wright CVO RN, wrote:
“The Princess Royal has asked me to thank you for your recent letter explaining that the Porthcurno Telegraph Museum has been awarded £1.44 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund and a further £125,000 from the DCMS/Wolfson Museums and Galleries Improvement Fund.”
“Her Royal Highness was delighted to hear this excellent news and sends you and all your colleagues at the Museum her best wishes for your continued success.”
The Princess Royal visited us in the summer of 2012 when she met with Museum staff and volunteers, before officially opening the Nerve Centre of Empire exhibition in Eastern House. We hope that Her Royal Highness’ schedule allows her to make a return visit on completion of the capital project in 2014!
