project blogWell, it’s freezing out there, but very beautiful. There is something about this sort of weather that is evocative of times gone by, which is handy seeing as that’s our business.
World War 1
Our history centre is currently running an amazing project to update the website, Poole at War. Poole At War commemorates Poole’s war dead and so the team in the history centre want to update it to think, not only about the soldiers who gave their lives, but also those who returned and all those who remained here and contributed to the war effort. The team are working with volunteers and different groups to conduct all the research they need for the project and then will produce the new website. It should be a fantastic resource, especially for schools to use.
If you want to find out more about the project you can follow the project blog.
Time almost forgotten
We’re having a super busy term and are hosting a range of school workshops. So far this term we’ve led workshops about the Stone Age, the Iron Age, the Saxons, the Vikings, the Tudors and the Victorians. Scaplen’s Court is authentically cold at this time of year, which adds to the experience. If you would like to find out about any of our workshops take a look at our website or give us a call (01202 262623).
Dance the night away
We’ve just bought a record player for our fun and games workshop. This workshop is all about life in living memory and how things have changed. It’s called fun and games, partly because it’s a lot of fun. Having music playing on an original record player will definitely add to the atmosphere!!!!
