The Scouts Drop in for a Visit

Friday 4 November 2016

On Tuesday 18th of October a group of eighteen Cub-Scouts were welcomed into the museum for an evening visit.

Their trip opened with a tour round the museum to see our current exhibition on Shops and Shopping, ‘Down the Shops.’ This included weighing out sweets using old-fashioned Imperial measurements in ounces and using the clunking till with pre-decimal pounds, shillings and pence (and florins, halfpennies, sixpences and all) – much to their delight!

They then enjoyed a short talk suggested by their leaders regarding historic Childhood in Borehamwood, a talk supplemented with photographs from our collection.

The young people then interviewed a panel of museum Volunteers, asking any questions they liked and on a wide variety of topics.
