Craft project helps Jubilee Court residents take a trip down memory lane
AN ‘arty’ project led by customers living at a Stafford Independent Living Scheme is helping fellow residents take a walk down memory lane.
Customers at Stafford and Rural Homes’ Jubilee Court have created a memory lane wall display of old photos and newspaper cuttings looking back at Stafford through the years.
“Many of the residents have fond memories of the local area the idea was to create a memory provoking and nostalgic look back at Stafford gone by,” said Elaine Tomlinson, Extra Care Manager for Stafford and Rural Homes at Jubilee Court.
“The project was completely resident funded and they had great fun gathering old items of memorabilia from various outlets in Stafford to create the area.”
The area also includes a memory seat with cushions created by customers to represent their experiences of living at Jubilee Court.
In 2010 Jubilee Court underwent a £2.4million redevelopment to turn the existing flats into a modern, extra care facility that includes 34 spacious one and two bedroom apartments, with fully-fitted kitchens and a range of adaptations.
