Connecting Across Generations

Following on from our selection of natural world-themed content last week, this time we're looking at the second theme of Children's Art Week: Connecting across Generations.

First up we have another great video from artist Keith Ashford, where he shows you how to make your very own paper suitcase – useful for carrying memories and heirlooms of previous generations from place to place.


In light of this week's theme, we thought it might be nice to share some recipes from our own families and backgrounds – highlighting our own cross-generational connections in the hope that it encourages others to do likewise. Taken in order, the recipes we're offering here make up a healthy and mouth-watering meal.  These can be found on our Creative Cookery page

Do you have any cross-generational recipes you’d like to share? If so we’d love to see them via ‘h.moseley@bromsgroveandredditch.gov.uk’.

While you’re happily digesting all that, we thought it would be good to highlight the work which the Redditch Local History has done in partnership with the Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service at the HIVE, researching the records they hold on the Redditch Tribunals during WWI. This work will make it possible to search the records of men seeking exemption from conscription and shed some fascinating light on Redditch’s role in WWI. Find out more at the following link to the WAAS website. For more information about Redditch during the world wars see the Redditch Local History Society website here.
