Pioneering Women, Women’s Suffrage and WW1 Collection Afternoon, 2nd November

Do you have the stories of women in your families and communities who have done pioneering things with their lives in any decade or era? Can you help the Rumble Museum at Cheney School save these stories, memories, and objects?

We need people to bring any objects (photographs, diaries, letters, medals, souvenirs, etc) that your family has kept, or just stories that have been passed down to our Digital Collection Day. We will then record your story or photograph the object and get details from you on their background, and preserve these details on the Rumble Museum website.

We are also collecting World War One stories and items, which we will upload this to a major web site to be launched on 11th November 2018. The web site will be freely available to anyone to use and will help preserve these key objects and documents from the War.

Please come along to the Rumble Museum at Cheney School with your objects between 2 and 5pm on Friday 2nd November, 2018. We will have experts on hand to help to give you more information on the items. There will also be artefact-handling, refreshments and an opportunity to talk to members from the wider community.

This is part of a national project called ‘Lest We Forget’ co-ordinated by the University of Oxford – see https://www.facebook.com/OxfordLWF/

Please contact us in advance with rough details of what you will be bringing along.
