A step back in time for Cedar House group
Posted on Thursday 24th May
A trip from Cedar House in Yelverton saw a group of staff and residents step back in time as they visited ‘Yesterday’s World’ in Great Yarmouth.
The Victorian street and shop displays were enjoyed by all, particularly the ironmongers shop and 19th Century apothecary. The toy shop was certainly a long way removed from Toys R’Us.
The group also came face to face with some intimidating historical figures including Winston Churchill and Queen Victoria.
Several hours were spent among the memorabilia, followed by a cup of tea (one thing that hasn’t changed too much) in the Olde Worlde Café.
Cedar House Manager Debra Read said:
“The displays were a fantastic reminder for many of our residents of childhood memories and much time was spent reminiscing for days after the trip.”
Located in the quiet village of Yelverton, near Norwich, Cedar House retirement home is a fine period property providing residential and nursing care for up to 24 elderly people. This beautiful former Rectory dates in part back to the 13th century and is a well known landmark within the village.
