Springhill Care Home recently took a trip down memory lane as we loaned a memory box from the library and used it at our monthly Memory Café.
This month we partnered up with the Lancashire Heritage Team and loaned the memories in the box containing genuine historical artefacts.
Our monthly cafes are for our residents, relatives, friends and staff team to come together in a welcoming place…and this month our theme was ‘Going Out’ bringing back memories for the ladies with a vintage hair dryer.
We enjoyed looking at the different items including a soda stream, vinyl records, newspaper clippings, vintage rouge and perfume in pretty bottles.
We all remembered the scents from when we were younger and shared our stories with each other.
Tea and cakes were served as we listened to 50s and 60s music followed by a sing song and a little dance.
It was a great day and we are looking forward to the different memories that will be brought when we collect the next box.
