32 stroll down mem­ory lane via Ted’s Shed

Isis Town and Country - - Kolan News -

THE Woodgate Men’s Shed en­joyed a look through Ted’s Shed, Pri­vate Mu­seum, with 32 at­tend­ing, in­clud­ing mem­bers, part­ners and some lo­cals over a pe­riod of two hours.

Morn­ing tea was avail­able at 10am, with most choos­ing a Royal Doul­ton foam mug as their cho­sen drink­ing ves­sel.

Robbie Robot and a cou­ple of his as­so­ci­ates were on hand to meet and greet ev­ery­one on ar­rival.

Most of the peo­ple are re­tirees, and for them it was ba­si­cally a stroll down mem­ory lane, but not all things were an­tique.

Two young boys found it hard to com­pre­hend that a very small mem­ory stick can hold thou­sands of songs whereas a 78rpm gramo­phone record only holds two.

With­out doubt, all en­joyed the visit and some were even sur­prised at the scope of ex­hibits con­tained therein.

It was a great so­cial out­ing.
