Tales of weird and wonderful East Anglian remedies of days gone past will be the focus of an oral history event next week.
People will be asked to share their stories of the cures used to treat their ailments and what their mother gave them when they were poorly at Swaffham Museum next Wednesday.
Heritage development officer Sian Hogarth will give a talk and show the museum’s medical collections and archives, and share free refreshments.
The Swaffham Speaks project aims to capture and preserve the memories of local residents old and young for future generations, creating a Swaffham: Within Living Memory sound archive.
The free event will take place between 10am and noon on Wednesday October 3. Contact project officer Alice Mouncer on firstname.lastname@example.org or 01760 721230.
