Dean Evans was welcomed and thanked by the Chairman at our November meeting.
Of the 71 public buildings sponsored over a period of 14 years, 20 of which are in Cornwall, in the centre of Blackwater is the recently refurbished reading room, opened originally in 1890 by John Passmore Edwards (1823-1911), the first of many donations to public life by this renowned Cornishman, where else but in his home village.
Dean estimated that in todays money, his contributions - recognised in Court papers as well as by English Prime Ministers of the day - totalled around £200 million.
