At Horsham Museum and Art Gallery we have developed 36 memory boxes and 9 quiz boxes, each containing objects from the 1930s to 1970s. The themes cover a wide range of subjects.
The Reminiscence Loan Boxes are loaned free of charge to residential homes, sheltered accommodation and any club for the elderly throughout the Horsham District. The boxes are also available to organisations for the elderly outside the District for an annual fee of £100. This fee allows you to borrow as many boxes as you like and also gives you a discount on the fee for Reminiscence Training. We ask that you allow three working days notice before collecting your loan box.
Reminiscence training is being offered by the Museum in the form of short sessions of two to three hours, either for individuals or small groups. The sessions will be held in the Hurst Room at the Museum and will hopefully be flexible enough to offer you the chance to attend, either as a newcomer to the service or as a refresher. The cost will be £10 per person per session (including refreshments). If a group from one centre want to attend training sessions the Museum will have the ability to deliver this to you at your location. Please telephone the Museum on 01403 254959 for further details or to book a session.
