Memory Box Video's

Memory Box Video's

Memories are so important to who we are and our memory boxes are a wonderful way of reminding people about their past.

We realise how important objects are in helping people rekindle their memories and talk about their life, especially people who are living with dementia.

Unfortunately we can't currently hire out our memory boxes so one of our staff has made a series of short videos which showcase the different boxes we have and which can hopefully inspire lots of discussion and reminiscing.

Going shopping - good for reminiscing about buying food in local shops. It includes rationing and ration books, collecting Green Shield Stamps and old coins and decimalisation.

Our working life - recall time at work including local companies. It includes nurses at Walton Hospital, Pill boxes and Smartie tubes from Robinson's and a Pit Check from Bolsover Colliery.

The swinging sixties - music and fashion from the 1960s. Objects include a Dandy Comic, Simplicity Dress Pattern, Kodak Instamatic Camera and a 45 Single Record.

Dressed to impress - memories of dressing up and going out. Objects include curling tongs, a cotton hankie, Old Spice aftershave and a girdle.
