Edinburgh's Reminiscence Project • Established 1986

Thelma newsletter

As we had to sadly close our Wee Museums of Memory during lockdown, we realised keeping connected through sharing memories was more important than ever. This is why we decided to put together a newsletter from the memories and stories we received through our photo archive. Our newsletters are crafted around various themes.
Do feel free to pass this newsletter onto anyone else who you think might be interested.

Send us your memories

Do you have memories, stories or photos you’d like to share? We would love it if you have time to send them to us. Please do get in touch.
