Heathlands Village Memory Workshop
We were invited to visit the Heathlands Village Care Home, North Manchester, where many former residents of Cheetham Hill now live. We ran a Memory Workshop with our social history volunteer, Eddie, who took in a fascinating collection of objects to handle. He had chosen the objects relating to the industries of the area which his family had collected, for example shearing scissors and bobbins. We also distributed our project booklet to residents, which complimented the object handling. The residents really enjoyed the session and contributed more memories inspired by the collection.
