Kidlington Reminiscence Group

Kidlington Reminiscence Group

The aim  of the group is to provide a space for people to explore a range of subjects, share stories, memories and personal items, make new friends or spend time with old ones.

The older members of this large village community thoroughly enjoy the interactive and engaging reminiscence sessions on subjects and themes they have been encouraged to suggest.

Members value the opportunity to record their memories on some of the subjects discussed, with the aim of developing an oral history sound archive.

There is an annual outing to a destination with a local history interest for members to enjoy. This group welcomes anyone over the age of 55 years.

For more information please contact Karey Morley on 01295 236165.

The group meets at Kidlington Baptist Church, High Street, Kidlington OX5 2DS, on the last Thursday of each month between 2.00 – 3.45pm. The cost is £3.00 per person
