Children step back in time at Havering Museum
Visitors took a step back into the past in an event at Havering Museum run by a couple who had experienced it first hand.
There was a chance for both adults and children to relive World War Two at the event in High Street, Romford last Wednesday (August 3).
David and Pauline Scott came in to talk about their war-time experience, displayed historical information and brought along memorabilia to help people understand what it was like at the time.
Havering Museum’s education officer, Laura Turnage said: “After the success of their World War Two day last year we were delighted to welcome them back and the response was brilliant. It was enjoyable for all ages.”
For elder visitors it was a time to reminisce while engaging the younger visitors with information about the Home Front.
Heather Hooper, Josie Hooper and Martha Hampton aged nine to 11 listened attentively to Mrs Scott speak about what it was like to live in World War Two with daily blackouts as well as the importance of the saying make do and mend.
Mr Scott dressed-up as Winston Churchill and spoke about his life before he became prime minister.
