At the end of April Callington Singers held a very successful workshop day and the funds raised, £730,  were donated to the Heritage Centre. For several years the Centre has struggled with obsolete computers. The management committee is now been able to buy a much needed replacement for our oldest computer. We are extremely grateful to Callington Singers as we are able to remove this item from our "wish list".  We had already purchased a refurbished computer, but could not afford this second computer. With a further donation of an "all in one" computer we now feel that we have the IT capabilty we need. The sum donated exceeded our expectations and has made an enormous difference to the Centre.

As a further update, with the old information files loaded to the new, faster computer, it is proving possible to reorganise the information held at the Heritage Centre so that it is easier to use. One of our volunteers is now busy building an easy to use database, accessed from a "home page". Meanwhile, other volunteers are busy scanning even more photographs ready for viewing ahead of the arrival of a new, bigger screen .
