Eight Guild members and a friend paid an inspiring visit to Cameron House Inverness on Wednesday 1st July.

The theme chosen by Janet Winchester was VE Day. Memories were evoked using songs, poems, original newspapers and ration books. We played two games— a ration game where we realised how little 2oz of items such as butter, cheese and jam looked like and also the disappearing game where we remembered which item of rations was missing. We sang and even did some dancing to WW2 songs.

It is inspiring to see how small items and music can elicit such a marvellous response from the residents, staff and Guild members. Thank you, Janet, for another wonderful afternoon!
