THE DUCHY'S most westerly region is set to be represented in style at the Royal Cornwall Show over the next three days.

Geevor Tin Mine will be at the event for the first time from today, and has joined up with Penlee House and Gallery in Penzance, Porthcurno Telegraph Museum, the Levant Mine and two music acts to make sure the showcase is a success.

The Cornish Crisp Co is also involved, with the snack manufacturer agreeing to help support the Cornish Mining World Heritage Site with sales of its famous Cornish pasty-flavoured crisps.

Two former tin miners, Cyril and AJ, will be on hand at the show to talk about working on a mine – available to tell first-hand experiences of tin excavation.

"Former miners are our best resource and we are very lucky to still have four or five of them working at Geevor to the present day," said Sarah Nicholas, the mine's marketing and public relations manager.

The team will be exhibiting on stand number 467 at the Royal Cornwall Show.

The Royal Cornwall Show starts today and runs until Saturday.
