Hidden history . . .

This week we have confirmed the venue for our 'Treasured Memories' project and it is in the stunning Eastbury Manor House, Barking.  This striking Elizabethan merchant's house and gardens can be found hiding in plain sight in the heart of Barking surrounded by average everyday council housing.  We are looking forward to this being our Wednesday home from the 26th of March for seven weeks!!

This beautifully restored house is steeped in history and rumor has it that Guy Faulks plotted to blow up the Houses of Parliament at Eastbury Manor House.

A little bit more about the rich history of the house can be found on the London Borough of Barking and Dagenhams website.

. . . to help set up and maintain a new project called ‘Treasured Memories’ starting in March. The aim of the project is to create a social group for isolated older residents in Barking and Dagenham to come together, socialise, share their life experiences and learn new skills. 

The projects initial stage is to give attendees renewed self-confidence, a platform to meet new people and re-connect with the community in a warm, friendly and relaxed atmosphere.

The focus of the project will be around each attendee creating their own American style scrapbook about their life which they will contribute to each week through six themed workshops alongside life skills to help increase their confidence.

Through the themes of each workshop we hope to provoke memories from the past as a discussion point to build rapport within the group and identify shared values and interests and to create a self-sustaining social group to continue to meet and grow with the help of volunteers.

Volunteers must be available Wednesdays 2pm-5pm.
