Happy Memories Café 25th June …. a big success

Thank      you      to      everyone      who      attended      our      second      Happy      Memories      Cafe      where      we      explored     memory  boxes.  This      was      very      popular      with      all      ages      and   encouraged   a   lot   of   happy   reminiscing   over   all   the   items that were in the boxes. Items      such      as      a      toasting      fork      ,      which      made      us      all      talk      about      when      we      used      to      use      them      on     the      open      fires,      a      milk      can      that      we      used      to      go      and      to   collect            fresh      milk      straight      from      the     dairy.      When      I      was      young      our      milk      came      from      Court      Green      Farm      and      we      would      walk      over      and     collect      it      with      the   Presslee   boys   from   next   door,   I   would   swing   the   can   full   of   milk   in   a   big   circle   feeling rather clever not to spill it. We      talked      about      “Monday      wash      day”            and            it      lasting      most      of      the      day      with      the      lighting      of      the     copper      and      the      never      ending      items      of      clothes      to      be   washed,      Sylvia      remembered      the      blue      bags     that      were      used      to      keep      the      whites      right      and            Joan      recalled      the      wooden      tongs      that      were      used      ,     but      we      all   felt      that      things      had      changed      for      the      better      with      the      introduction      of      the      automatic     machines.  Many      memories      were      exchanged      all      instigated      by      the   various   objects   and   the   morning   was   much enjoyed. Thanks      to      all      who      helped      out      in      anyway      and      to      all      who      made      the      lovely      home      made      cakes.     Thanks      to      Pastor      Jim,      Lyn,      and      Denise      who      along      with   myself      lead   the   discussions   on   the   items   in the boxes and helped to facilitate. Special      thanks      to      Lisa      Holmes      who      is      part      of   Age      UK      Memory   Advisory   Team      who      gave      a      short     talk      at      the      start      of      the      morning            about      memory      loss      and   the   importance   of   going   to   see   your   GP early, as in many cases treatment for the condition can really make a difference. The      Next      Happy      Memories      Cafe      is      on      Monday      September      the      3rd      10am      until      12      noon      where     we      will      be      looking      at      the      old      Bere      Regis      photographs      and   Paul      Bennett      will      be      bringing      along      a     rolling      slide      show      and      albums      of      post      cards.      We      also      have      an      entertainer      with      a      pat      dog      so     pop  this  date  in  your diary and we look forward to seeing you there.

Thank  you  to  everyone  who  attended  our  second  Happy  Memories  Cafe  where  we  explored  memory  boxes.  This  was  very  popular  with  all  ages  and encouraged a lot of happy reminiscing over all the items that were in the boxes. Items  such  as  a  toasting  fork  ,  which  made  us  all  talk  about  when  we  used  to  use  them  on  the  open  fires,  a  milk  can  that  we  used  to  go  and  to collect    fresh  milk  straight  from  the  dairy.  When  I  was  young  our  milk  came  from  Court  Green  Farm  and  we  would  walk  over  and  collect  it  with  the Presslee boys from next door, I would swing the can full of milk in a big circle feeling rather clever not to spill it. We  talked  about  “Monday  wash  day”    and    it  lasting  most  of  the  day  with  the  lighting  of  the  copper  and  the  never  ending  items  of  clothes  to  be washed,  Sylvia  remembered  the  blue  bags  that  were  used  to  keep  the  whites  right  and    Joan  recalled  the  wooden  tongs  that  were  used  ,  but  we  all felt  that  things  had  changed  for  the  better  with  the  introduction  of  the  automatic  machines.  Many  memories  were  exchanged  all  instigated  by  the various objects and the morning was much enjoyed.
