Club H2O consider what we have and what we had!

The older members of our intergenarational initiative, Club H2O, met with Bill Leech of Oban's War and Peace Museum this week. Time together was taken to consider life around 1946 post-war Britain and the little we had then as oppose to all we have now. Rations were on display as part of the chat, with a week's worth including a small pat of butter, small helping of cheese, 2 pints of milk, 3 chops and 2 rashers of bacon per week.
Discussions took place on who might, maybe, just fit the clothes of the day (for ladies 23" waist and 36" hips) with the decision to 'move on' the conversation being wisely taken. A splendid time was had and many thanks go to Bill for coming along and sharing so informatively.
Meantime, Fiona Campbell is having ongoing chats with OHS teachers, developing the future Club H2O programme. Currently in the pipeline..... St. Andrews event, Christmas pensioners treat at OHS, Rogers and Hammerstein performance and highlights from the shows....yes, meets have been with Home Economics and Performing Arts!
