A lovely day for reminiscing about homes and the streets where we lived.
We brought some memorabilia to prompt conversations.
At the start we reminisced about our first homes and our neighbours. How families helped by giving furniture. A couple built their own kitchen. One gentleman lived on a ship, as he joined the merchant navy when he left home. One joined the Amy and lived in Egypt. Another left for the USA aged 17, salvaging furniture for his new home from skips. And there were parties…
We ran a 1977 Queen’s Silver Jubilee street party. There was much flag waving and singing God Save The Queen – from our multi-national group.
Thanks to participants for contributing food, enthusiasm and singing.
A very good afternoon indeed.
