June 2015 Extra!


The Crantock Memory Café has now been running successfully for 18 months, held in Crantock Village Hall on the first Monday afternoon of each month.

In response to popular demand we decided to increase the programme by holding a second monthly session on the third Monday. We have called this Crantock Memory Café Extra. We consulted our members and decided to offer a different sort of programme, mainly based on showing nostalgia films and programmes.

The first CMC Extra meeting was held in the Village Hall on Monday 15th June and was enthusiastically received by our guests. The proceedings began with quizzes and games followed by showing a nostalgia DVD entitled “Britain in the 1940's”.  This consisted of a compilation of fascinating news clips and vintage advertisements from that period. It covered the Second World War and its aftermath, including post war austerity and the beginning of the Cold War. This brought back many interesting memories for some of our guests.

Then we stopped for a tea break during which guests tackled 20 questions based on the film content. The meeting then finished with some light relief in the form of a comedy programme from the 1990's.

The next meeting of the main Crantock Memory Café will be on July 6 and CMC Extra will be on July 20.
