Rolling Back The Years

On the left librarian Jenny Hoult and on the right residents Heather Williamson and George Beckford turn back the years at the library display.

 

Gravy salts, Be-Ro Cook Books, Cakeoma, a  double earthenware boiler for porridge and a Norfolk Cookbook from 1913 helped to role back the culinary years at Hethersett Library. 

Members of the public were given a “taste of the past” at a special “Remember When” afternoon that took a nostalgic trip through the world of food and drink. 

There was a food themed display of history books and staff from the Gressenhall Museum of Norfolk Life were on hand to prompt the memories of spam, rationing and stone ovens. 

Those present discussed the way bread was cut in different parts of the country after the Second World War and reminiscences were jotted down to be added to the village historical archive. 

It was the latest in a series of events organised by Norfolk County Councils at libraries throughout Norfolk.
