tripp Removals and Storage Helping Communities
Members of the public enjoyed an exhibition of archive material relating to Truro including old photographs, films and audio recordings. There was also an opportunity to contribute more material to the initiative and share memories with the cornishmemory.com team about the displays on show.
Tripp Removals, the moving specialists, helped our roadshow again in Truro. This was the final event of a full season touring Cornwall and we have been happy to provide sponsorship in the form of a towing vehicle to this worthwhile community project. In addition to Truro, our part in the tour has included the Royal Cornwall Show at Wadebridge, the J Class Yacht Festival in Falmouth, the Bugle Band Contest, Stithians Steam Fair and community events in Newlyn, Newquay, Carharrack, St Austell, Illogan, Launceston, Callington, Stoke Climsland and Devoran.
The initiative was Heritage Lottery Fund supported and the archive material digitised throughout the project can be enjoyed freely online at www.cornishmemory.com
Our involvement with cornishmemory.com has prompted us to delve into our own history and Max Tripp is planning to record his memories of the business with help from Cornish broadcasting legend, Ted Gundry. Our Cornish heritage is important to us as a business and we are committed to playing our part in Cornish life today and into the future.
