Thank you Cherry, your talk went down very well, lovely to have items to handle, to add variety in the presentation.

Many of the talks are a living history experience
I aim to illustrate the daily lives of the ordinary people of history by delivering well researched presentations gleaned from primary sources with museum replica standard period clothes and artefacts, telling the stories of the times through food, clothes medicine, buildings and festivals in the living spaces of the past. I have a passionate enthusiasm for history and I deliver a lively and riveting performance both charming and accessible.
‘Our Lunch Club members sat and listened, we were all fascinated. Cherry is friendly and gave a very polished and professional talk with a table full of articles to see which were well set out and cared for. I am sure we will ask Cherry to come again and I would recommend her not only for older people but also historians because she has such a good knowledge of her subject. She shared her knowledge and enthusiasm with us’. English Bicknor W.I.
