REMINISCENCE ACTIVITIES FOR NORFOLK AND SUFFOLK
Sharing happy memories and reminiscing about the past using a range of themed memorabilia.
My name is Angela Bishop, I am a professionally trained reminiscence worker and I run a reminiscence and creative activities service for people of all ages.
I also run themed talks for friendship clubs, W.I.'s, church groups and societies and also work with schools, community organisations, charities, museums and libraries.
My sessions are lively and stimulating; we talk, laugh and have lots of fun.
I bring along a wide range of items from the past and we reminisce about our memories of them.
'It's like a little travelling museum'
Here you can see a 'Washing and Cleaning' reminiscence session.
I bring along items such as a mangle, a washboard and a tin tub and we talk about memories of taking a bath, doing the washing and polishing the silver.
Participants might like to express their memories through talking, singing, miming, drawing, or by touching and exploring the memorabilia.
I am available to run themed sessions in your meeting room, village hall, residential home, sheltered housing complex, hospital, day centre, church, or school on a wide range of different topics- see below.
My prices are very competitive with sessions from £45 (petrol costs may apply).
I have many years experience working with a wide range of people with differing abilities and care needs.
As well as reminiscence skills, I have a background in provision of activities and can combine reminiscence work with art, craft, drama, puppetry, poetry and creative writing and story telling if required.
