Tenants and friends of Market Court sheltered housing development in Haddington will be taking a walk down memory lane, remembering old friends who have now left us, with an event on 29 November.
An afternoon tea has been arranged, with a group of musicians to entertain guests with a variety of classic tunes to bring back memories. Beforehand, the residents will make a list of songs that have special memories of the friends they have lost, ready for a wee sing along.
The plan is also to make a collage of old photos and tell stories and recall memories of old tenants.
Old photos often lead to stories of bygone days, as most of the tenants were born and brought up nearby. Since it is a farming community, a lot of people are related or have worked together, and the stories and memories they have are amazing.
Friends from the sheltered housing complex next door have also been invited. Since they do not have a lounge, Market Court always try to include them in their activities.
