Friday 23rd June – Victorian living comes to Wensum

Many of us have been wondering  what life in Heigham would have been like in the early part of the 20th Century.  Today we found out as we immersed ourselves in a wonderful series of hands-on activities, experiences and learning.  Children moved through 7 different experiences – knit and natter; the seamstress, Victorian food, singing, clapping and playground games, toys and games, laundry and boot making, and Victorian photography – and came away with a rich understanding of the sights, sounds, smells of life over 100 years ago.  The day ended with everyone gathering on the playground for a photograph and a rendition of God Save the King!  A huge thank you to Neil and his amazing team for genuinely bringing the past to life for us all.  Enjoy the gallery.
