A busy and exciting week since our last posting from South Somerset District Council’s Community Heritage Access Centre, near Yeovil.
One of the highlights so far was our first glove loans box going out to be used by the Dementia Care Team at Yeovil Hospital on a trial period. This was particularly pleasing as staff and a student had taken care to make and design holders for all the handling objects inside. This was appreciated by the Hospital representative for ease of carrying and use.
The actual use of the glove finger stretchers, for example, as a form of therapy and historical learning was especially intriguing to see.
We are also looking forward to receiving feedback on how the loans boxes can be updated, including a glossary of glove-making terms and when individual gloves were made.
We will endeavour to report back on progress!
We also continue to do well on Celebrating Yeovil 2017 Calendars, thanks to our many outlets, including the Courtyard Cafe, 27 Market Street, The Emporium, Princes Street and Brimsmore Garden Centre.
Checking through the new glove loans boxes and Glove Box 1 was selected to be used at Yeovil District Hospital.
