A Visit from Rutland County Museum

For this September’s sessions in Oakham we were joined by Emma Warren from Rutland County Museum, who brought a variety of domestic memorabilia from the 1950s for a brief “show and tell” interlude.

“My mum had one of those” and “We used to play that in the playground” were some of the many comments from guests, carers and volunteers and, as guests enjoyed it so much, a return visit is planned for 2014.

Our “Memory Box”, containing items which can act as reminders – “old money”, programmes, postcards, even a ration book etc. – is also available for guests to look through, along with our photo albums, at every session.
