Over the last six months a group of dedicated volunteers have spent many hours painting and reorganising all of the museum displays according to a design commissioned from Ros Goulding, formerly the curator at the Porthcurno Museum. The displays are now organised in a chronological order and tell the story of Ascension.

Many members of the community turned out to celebrate the hard work and to enjoy the new, much improved museum.

There are many more exciting Heritage Society projects planned for 2015 including the new Community Room and the Faces of Ascension project.
