Today Lydia, Mabel, Julian, Hilda, Barbara and her niece, Grace and Emma enjoyed an early Christmas lunch at The Talbot. We all enjoyed it.
Please see our Rreminiscence’ page for more interesting stories and memories from Julian, Chris, Mary, Edna and Lydia about farms, the places they grew up in and rations.

Carrie, Julian, Edna,
Fabric, glue and baubles. White painted cones with glitter and glue. Thank you Pat G, Marjorie, Lilly, Valerie, Wendy, and Hilda for making Christmas decorations. We snipped fabric into small pieces and glued to baubles and sprinkled glitter onto white pained cones. Some decorations ate in the rooms of those who made them. A lovely activity, colourful, sparkly and jolly .
Please have a read of some lovely memories from Audrey and Della on life in Staffordshire and ponies…and also our Cartographic Love Letters page for a beautifully written and moving piece about the life of Marsha’s mum, Nina.
