Remembering Lea Village is a small group made up of older people who meet each week at our East Birmingham Hub to talk, reminisce and compare how Lea Village has changed over the decades.  DSC_0316

Their coffee morning takes place every Tuesday morning (term time only) between 10:30am and 12:30pm at our East Birmingham Hub (Kitts Green Road) and each week the group explores a different theme in a relaxed and friendly environment.

Over recent months, the group have used the internet to explore how much household goods and food cost when they were born compared to today and how children’s toys and games have changed.  They are also busy producing a booklet called ‘My Story of Lea Village’ which tells individuals’ story of their life on Lea Village.

DSC_0317On Tuesday 28th November, the group took a trip into Birmingham to visit its history exhibition which explores the fascinating history of the city by travelling back in time to Birmingham’s medieval beginnings.

 “It was fascinating to learn more about Birmingham and to see how we used to live and the artefacts rather than just talk about it.” Natalie

 “I really enjoyed to find out more about Birmingham and its many cultures and I loved seeing how the city has changed.”  Missy
