Our Trustees bid a belated but extremely fond farewell to Brian Salmon and John Smith at their retirement celebration on Friday.
Brian is the former Deputy Head of Camborne School and was Head of History at the college before this appointment. He has an excellent knowledge of Cornish history and is a member of a family which worked and managed Wolfram Mine at Castle an Dinas. Brian served as a Trustee for 12 years, and his insights into education and Cornish heritage have proven invaluable.
John is a former Archaeologist, whose career included 23 years as Field Officer and Senior Archaeologist with Cornwall Archaeological Unit (CAU). He has given many lectures and guided walks about Cornwall’s industrial history over the years, and directed a major landscape survey of the Luxulyan Valley during his time with CAU. It’s, therefore, no surprise that Treffry Viaduct is a part of Cornwall’s heritage which is particularly close to his heart. John offered his historic and archaeological expertise as a Trustee for 10 years and was Vice-Chair of the Board of Trustees from 2017-2021.
We would all like to thank Brian and John for their exceptional efforts and dedication to Cornwall Heritage Trust. They will both be very much missed and we are hugely grateful to them for everything they have done for Cornwall’s heritage.
Our Trustees are elected volunteers who are responsible for the strategic overview of the Trust as well as ensuring the fulfilment of the financial and legal requirements of the organisation, which is both a registered Charity and a Limited Company.
