This will be our fifth consecutive open day and it continues to go from strength to strength. This year for our royal street party we are working in support of Age UK Suffolk who have kindly let us borrow two beautiful Rempods (reminiscence pods) – you might have seen them on Dragon’s Den. These pop up scenes are a way of helping us all relive times gone by and to revel in
nostalgia. Of course for some people living with memory loss, they can be particularly evocative. We hope that you like what we have done with the Rempods and take the opportunity to explore the home and see what is available.
