The Friends have been able to provide funds for the purchase of 7 pieces of a prettily decorated monogrammed china tea service, (circa 1850-1860), which belonged to the Stepney-Gulston family who lived in Derwydd Manor.

Chairman Diana Pazienti presents Museums Officer Gavin Evans with a plate from the Gulston dessert service at the 2001 AGM, which was held in the Bishop's Chapel at the museum.
