Going Down The Village : Open Places, Rivers and Waterways
Wednesday 9 November 2016
The monthly Reminiscence meeting - Going Down The Village - is proving to be very popular. This takes place in the rear hall at 96 on the first Thursday of each month.
The topic for November was Open Places, Rivers and Waterways. 18 visitors brought memories of their time at Aldenham Lake, and also the water splash in Theobald Street, as well outings to Meadow Park. This was supported by 25 photos on a PowerPoint presentation. These showed many views of Borehamwood through the ages, including the construction of Aberford Park, the sewage farm in Eldon Avenue and the aqueduct at the Brickfields.
The photos generated quite a discussion on dates and time for the various locations. The meeting is aided by free tea and biscuits. Next month we’ll be discussing Restaurants and Christmas Food.
