Thurs 21st Nov free 10-1pm The Epicentre, West Street E11.

On Thursday 21st November 2013 RAGWORKS displays the wall-hanging entitled

                               “Leyton Reminiscence Quilt”

showing 16 pockets of memories about Leyton all in RAGWORKS style. There’s a list of the stimuli for each scene and that list will surely evoke memories from seniors at the AgeUK Waltham Forest event about falling , heating, Tai Chi and well-being.

Seniors in Waltham Forest are invited by AGEUK Waltham Forest to share three hours at the Epicentre to find out how best to fall and  which ways to stop massive heating bills. RAGWORKS fits in nicely as the Reminiscence Quilt will spark some spontaneous discussion.
