Childhood memories wanted

Published on Thursday, 20th April 2017 in Exhibitions news

Clifton Park Museum is appealing for childhood memorabilia and stories to be included in a forthcoming exhibition – Childhood through the Ages.

The exhibition, which will run from September 2017, will feature various items relating to childhood from the 1940s to the 1980s.

“If you have anything from your own or a loved one’s childhood during this time, which brings back memories or has a story to tell, we’d love to include it,” said Cllr Taiba Yasseen, Rotherham Council’s Cabinet Member for Neighbourhood Working and Cultural Services.

“The museum is looking for anything from clothing, memorabilia, toys, keepsakes, magazines, items from hobbies or pastimes, your favourite music, or anything else you can think of.

“Or if you had a collection – from badges to Barbie dolls – museum staff would be interested to see that too.”

If you think you can help, please contact the museum with details of your items and the personal story behind them. Photographs would also be very helpful.
