It may sound odd but we try to keep our memory boxes updated, i.e items in the boxes are within living memory. That means objects right up until the 1970s and 80s. If you have suggestions for other themes please contact us.
Boxes can be taken out for up to a week.
Our memory boxes are free to council, NHS and community projects but we do ask for a donation from private or profit organisations.
Boxes are picked up from The Little Shop of Memory.
