A Memorable Day at Mansfield Museum

A special event to celebrate the redevelopment and¬†launch¬†Mansfield Museum’s Memory Loan Service which was held on Friday 25th February, was in itself a very memorable occasion. Staff and residents of three of the areas Care Homes, Avalon and Parkside of Forest Town and Stoneyford at Sutton in Ashfield joined Cllr Kate Allsop, museum staff and friends for the celebrations. The Memory Boxes are the culmination of a years long work by Helen Chatterton and contributions from members of the community. They are now available for loan to groups and Care Homes.
