Show & tell event & volunteering opportunity – Live Borders Museum Reminiscence Project (Selkirk) Remember Selkirk ‘Show and Tell’ event to launch a series of new loan boxes, focussing on Selkirk past and present – its heritage, people, shops, traditions and buildings. These loan boxes feature high quality replica objects, photographs, advertising, music and spoken word.
All material is suitable for handling and easy to use. The loan boxes will be available for organisations, individuals or families to borrow for reminiscence sessions, community group projects or dementia care activities. Live Borders Museums HQ in Selkirk is also seeking volunteer reminiscence ambassadors willing to be trained in how to deliver reminiscence sessions, to help promote community use of the loan boxes.
Help us to support local community groups, schools, care homes & carers and partner organisations by taking the boxes out and about around Selkirk. To register interest and find out more: come along to Halliwell’s house on 30 September!
